Seriously, how did this happen? I was 19 and in my final year in college when I first started this blog, and, now, I’m almost 21 with a full-time job. It’s like I turned into an adult overnight.
I read my oldest posts, and, somehow, I still sound the same, still feel the same. I like to think that I’ve matured, but, deep down, I am still the same person I was when I first started this blog. The only difference is that I now get a paycheck, so I have more money to spend on books.
But, anyway, the New Year is here, and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. Here are some of my blogging goals for the year:
- Post more often. – For some reason, I still haven’t found my groove, so to speak, when it comes to posting. I tend to post haphazardly and without a regular schedule. Sometimes, I post once a week and sometimes not at all. This year, I’m sticking with three posts per week.
- Get more personal. – I think I’m getting better at posting “personal” reviews, but there are still times when my reviews sound like book reports. The main reason I started this blog is to record the effects the books I read have on me PERSONALLY, not to write recommendations for other people.
- Host an event. – Thinking of hosting a readathon or some sort of blogging event scares the living daylights out of me (what if no one participates?!?!), which is exactly why I must do it.
