Reading and Blogging Goals for 2011

A somewhat stream of consciousness list of some of my goals for the next year:

  • Read 200+ books
  • Diversify reading to include more adult books, nonfiction, poetry, and short story anthologies
  • Read older books; they need love, too
  • Remove blogs that I don’t visit often from feed reader so that I can focus more on my favorites
  • Comment on other blogs more
  • Participate in and complete more reading challenges
  • Participate in more readathons
  • Spend more time reading than blogging/tweeting
  • Focus more on decreasing personal reading pile than reading tour and review books
  • Attend BEA and other book-related events
  • Meet more bloggers IRL
  • Keep a more organized reading log (categorized and chronological)
  • Share and give away more books
  • Expand number of bloggers involved in If You Like feature
  • Develop more original features and guest posts/interviews
  • Compile more lists of new releases and favorite books
  • Post more discussion topics
  • Post more about book-related news
  • Feature other bloggers more
  • Learn more about WordPress so that I have more flexibility/control of my page and post layouts
  • Review less, but more critically
  • Give myself permission to not read or review books when I don’t feel up to it
  • Post as frequently or infrequently as I want
  • Keep track of quotable quotes more regularly and promote them more often
  • Make sure that blogging stays a hobby and doesn’t become a job
  • Continue making blogging friends and promote new bloggers
  • Write acknowledgments and accolades posts more often
  • Develop more theme weeks/months
  • Organize more blog content in advance
  • Read outside my comfort zone and try new authors and genres more often

I’m sure I could keep going, but I could also use some other ideas. What are some of your goals for 2011?

  • Wowsers! That is quite a list! It sounds pretty doable though 🙂 I really enjoy participating in the “If You Like” feature! Thanks so much for allowing me help out. I wish I could be more helpful lol A few of the things you have done I haven’t been able to comment on. I guess I need to try out some things in 2011 😛
