Goals for 2018

I cannot believe that it is almost 2018. But at the same time, 2017 can fuck right off.

I like setting goals for the year (obviously) and I like posting them here to keep me somewhat accountable. I’ve divided them into reading goals (although I’ll have a TBR soon!), blog goals, and general goals.

Reading goals

  • Read 20 new books
  • Read 2 non-fiction books — two might not seem like a lot, but since my Goodreads goal is only 20 books, that’s 10% of my books
  • Read more books from my TBR
  • Read more diverse books

Blog goals

  • Post at least two reviews a month — because I don’t read as much, I feel like I don’t post reviews as often as I should. So my goal is to post at least two per month.
  • Get to 400 followers (I think it’s doable!)
  • Get more into book photography

General life goals

  • Go for one run per week (I can hope, okay)
  • Get an A on my thesis
  • Read more opinion pieces
  • Publish an article as the first author
  • Go on a road trip with friends
  • Finish undergrad (whaaaat)
  • Get coffee with friends at least once a month

I tried to do 18 but I couldn’t quite get there. But I think these goals are doable, which will keep me happy.

Thanks for reading!

    400 followers! I see that number way too far away 😦 but if I could help you, I will totally do it! haha I am a fan! haha I wish to get to the 200s :3 (Let's do a blogger party! XD)
    I wish I could post at least once a week 😦 but I think 2 a month is doable! :3 I like that! haha

  3. These are such lovely goals and hopefully, we can knock out the non-fiction one together. If you want to, we can even read two haha 🙂 Good luck with all of them ❤

  4. Those are good goals! I want to get better at photography, too, though my focus is knitting photography more than books. Who knows, though, books are also great practice. Maybe I’ll do both!
