2011 New Year's Resolutions

via Tumblr
Whoa, my first post for 2011. First off, I want to greet everybody. Happy New Year! The dawn of the New Year has got me thinking about my personal goals for this blog. Last December, I posted in a rather haphazard way with memes and my thoughts on books all thrown together. This year, I want this blog to be a little more organized. Here are my blogging goals for the year:
  1. Come up with at least one weekly feature, book-related of course. I still have to think about this one.
    1. Last month, I only posted my thoughts on two books. Hopefully, I can post about three or more books monthly.
    2. Start discussions on book or literature-related topics at least once a month. I usually say "I'm-on-the-fence" when asked about my opinion on a particular topic, but I think 2011 is a great year to start being opinionated.
    3. Comment on other people’s blogs more. This might sound creepy but I tend to be a lurker when it comes to other people’s blogs. I read what they have to say about certain topics, but I don’t comment. I have to cure this habit of mine.
    I hope I can accomplish my 2011 blogging goals. I've only been blogging for less than a month, but I've already interacted with so many amazing book bloggers, and, wow, I can't believe I have fifteen followers already. If you're reading this, thanks for stopping by this little blog of mine.

    How about you? What are your blogging goals for 2011?

    Okay so I have to ask, if it's not too personal - where are you located? I'm asking because this post just came in my reader and it's 10:30am on Friday the 31st for me. :D I love knowing where people are coming from!

    Great goals and I'm looking forward to seeing where your blog takes you!

    Amanda: I'm from the Philippines. It's 12:38 AM here right now, and the sky is alive with fireworks. Now that I think about it... It's kind of amazing that it's already 2011 here in my side of the world, and it's still 2010 in yours, gives a whole new meaning to the term 'different time zones.' :)

    I love all your goals! And I am so glad I found your lovely blog (I ADORE the name-cracks me up). I wish you a lot of luck in the New Year!

    Don't be afraid to comment! I try and comment as much as possible...even when it feels like I have nothing to say. :)

    I'm glad you found my blog so I could find yours. :) I'm with you, I need to leave more comments. I think I often feel I have nothing of value to say but perhaps I need stretch myself bit more. Happy New Year!

    Darlyn, I found your blog via Thomas (My Porch) and just had to check out the blog with Dickens in the title! I am a Dickens fanatic, and I always enjoying finding and reading other blogs that celebrate his awesomeness! I look forward to reading more.

    Hi, Thanks for stopping by and stepping out of the shadows to comment - sounds like you are meeting one of your goals already. We have been blogging about books for about a year and we have to get back on track...maybe we need some goals?!
    Looking forward to reading what you have to say in the new year!
