I've decided to set some goals for the new year for my blog. There are definitely some things that I can do to improve, both as a blogger and a reader, so here they are:
- Read 200 books in 2011. That's my goal. I really started getting into reading back in 2008, when I read 62 books. In 2009, I read 140 books. 2010: 179 books. I think it's fair to say that I can read 200 books in 2011.
- Review more books. In the past year that I've had my blog, I haven't reviewed as many books as I would have liked. I think the problem is that I wait to long to write a review for a book, then I forget everything important, so I just don't write it. Most of all my reviewing/blogging gets done during the weekend, so I'm going to make it a goal that every weekend I review most, if not all, the books I read that week. Which also brings me to my next goal:
- Put more thought behind my reviews. This isn't to say that I don't put any thought or time into them, because I do. But I would like to get more in depth when I review a book. For instance, not just talk about the main character and plot, but also get into character development, sub-plots, writing, etc.
- Socialize more in the blogosphere. I've noticed that in a lot of people's resolutions this year, they say comment more. This isn't really my problem (thought I could do that more) but I just need to actually start a conversation or give my opinion more.
What are your New Year's resolutions?
