Happy New Year everyone! I have this feeling 2019 is going to be an amazing year and even more so for the bookish community! Book sales are up, local book stores are thriving, and there are TONS of incredible books releasing this year!
I wanted to start this year off on a good note by writing down everything I hope to achieve this year. I don’t want to call them resolutions because I am not trying to limit myself on anything and I don’t want to put a stigma on them to where I make myself suffer trying to achieve them. These are just things I want to work towards this year and if it happens then that’s even more amazing!
I am going to break my goals up into different sections depending on what platform they are for!
Bookishly Brittknee (My Blog!)
1 . Grow my blog’s following to 250 followers!
2 . Post a review for every book I read in 2019.
3 . Stick to posting fun tags weekly. ie, Top Ten Tuesday, Can’t Wait Wednesday, Down the TBR Hole, Friday Favorites.
4 . Have a month with over 1,000 views!
1 . Grow my bookstagram following to 4,000 followers.
2 . Continue posting at least 1 to 2 times a day.
3 . Continue participating in monthly photo challenges.
4 . Host more giveaways (even if they are small sometimes!)
1 . Read 75 books! Any platform that works for me at the time counts! (I love listening to Audiobooks while driving or working out, reading ebooks at work, and physical books at home!)
2 . Write a review for every book I read in 2019.
3 . Grow my following to 100 followers (I find it hard to gain followers on Goodreads, any tips would be appreciated!)
4 . Give out 5 star reviews less frequently. Truly only give them to books that absolutely amaze me, instead of throwing them out like confetti.
1 . Grow my following to 250 followers (another platform I find difficult to grow on, tips would be appreciated!)
2 . Be less anxious about responding to people, retweeting, or talking to authors! My account can only grow if I put myself out there more.
1 . Be braver and more confident when it comes to sending in requests to publishers and authors.
2. Be more confident in my ability to write good reviews!
What are your goals for 2019? Anything similar to mine or anything you think I should add to mine? A lot of them are pretty similar, I am mainly focused on growing my followings across my social media platforms and focusing on writing reviews for all of the books I read this year!
