Con’s

  • My already MASSIVE TBR pile growing

Book Bloggers New Years Challenge…Day 1 Resolutions

newsyearschallenge2-160x160

The lovely Rachel, the mastermind behind Parajunkee, has created this awesomesauce challenge for us book bloggers.  I am super excited about it.  As I am jumping back into book blogging after a hiatus.  The upside to this challenge is that it is super EASY!

NOTE: If I happen to acquire any new followers to my blog.  Thank you and I look forward to learning more about you!

Since I am jumping back into book blogging I have decided to keep my resolutions simple and hope that I can keep this thing going.  So here are my resolutions for 2014…

  • Complete my Goodreads reading challenge.  I have committed to reading 60 books in 2014.  Here’s hoping that I can stay on track.
  • Try more Audiobooks. I am currently listening to Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry.  I am exactly 1% into it.
  • Meet new bloggy friends. I actually started book blogging many moons ago (like 2009) but I have taken several hiatus’ and now I need to basically start over and make new blogging pals.
  • Find a review format and stick to it.  This was part of my problem with my old blogs.  I couldn’t find a review format that I enjoyed so I wasn’t really able to commit. Parajunkee’s BB101 posts here I come!
  • Do my own thing. In the past I have been known to be super jealous of the “popular” bloggers.  Since I am in the process of starting from scratch I just need to focus on doing my own thing and worry about my blog and no one else’s.
  • Complete my 2014 Reading ChallengesThis was a big issue in the past.  I’d sign up and then not complete a single one.  So I’ve only signed up for 2 so far for 2014.
  • Create a Review/Giveaway Policy.
  • Participate in WOW and Stacking the Shelves.
  • Try to create discussion posts that encourage engaging conversation.
  • Complete my About page

That is what I have come up with so far.  I may not be participating in all of the days, since I am just jumping back in, but I will participate on the days that I feel I have something to contribute.

Feel free to leave me a link to your post and I’ll drop by and visit.
