Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme I participate in when I can. It’s a great meme and is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week a new topic is presented. It’s not only fun to think about my own list, but to read what other people come up with!

This week we are talking about our goals and resolutions for 2014. They can be bookish, not bookish or a blend. I have personal goals and resolutions, but here I talk about my bookish goals and resolutions for the year:
- Move my blog to a self-hosting site–at this point I just need to create my header. That’s where I’m having a few problems since I don’t use Photoshop very well 😦
- Figure out what the header will be for my self-hosted blog–a continuation of the above, but deserves its own goal since I’m having so much trouble!
- Start participating in social media–Once I get my blog moved I plan to start with twitter (which I’ve never used before!)
- Write posts two to three weeks ahead of time–I plan to use a calendar and schedule my posts. Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer wrote a tips and tricks post a few days ago which talked about this as well as other ways to avoid burnout.
- Continue to post three or four times a week–I think this is my sweet spot for blogging. I feel trying to push myself more might lead to burnout.
- Read at least 100 books this year–This was the first year in quite a few years I didn’t read at least 100 books.
- Participate in at least four reading challenges this year–I only participated in one reading challenge last year and really enjoyed that one (New Author Challenge).
- Set a time limit in the morning and evening I spend reading other blogs–otherwise I tend to get lost reading blogs, sometimes not blogging or reading and feeling overwhelmed. When I try to do too much bloghopping I don’t even comment sometimes!
- Make sure I read and answer comments on my blog–this is a goal I’ve always had and want to continue. I enjoy comments so much and have met so many great bloggers and readers from comments and reading other blogs.
- Remember my reasons for blogging–to have fun, find great new books to read, find other people who read the same types of books I do, stretch myself by learning new technology as well as reading new authors and genres.
