Book Blogger Confessions: New Year Blogging Goals

Book Blogger Confessions is a meme that posts the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, where book bloggers “confess” and vent about topics that are unique to us. Feel free to share, vent and offer solutions.

Hosted by For What It’s Worth and Midnyte Reader. Check out the Book Blogger Confessions Schedule to see what topics are coming up.


Today’s Topic: Happy 2013! What are your blogging goals for the new year? Are you making any changes or testing out new ideas for reviews or organization? Have you joined any challenges?
What are the trends you noticed in blogging from 2012 and what do you hope to see for the blogging community in 2013?

Thought:  Hmm, I find goals hard to stick to and don’t usually make them. Well, kind of. They’re more like ‘ghost goals’ in where I have ideas, think I might want to pursue them and etch out a plan for them, but I don’t necessarily put the planning into motion or draw up a concrete goal. What I do, after I have thought of and vaguely planned out the idea, is to put it on the backburner and consider it for later. If the time is right or if I find the urge to pursue it, then the idea has been formed enough for me to make something of it.

I have considered creating a book club for BA and a blogging challenge, but I mainly just want to keep to a schedule and make sure I have something to post on a regular basis. Whether that regular basis is weekly or fortnightly, I know it will never be daily unless I’ve got a backlog at the end of the year. I once threw myself so much into blogging I ended up in a state of bad health because of it and want to avoid ever doing that again. Maybe you could say that’s my goal…


What about you? Feel free to share in the comments or let me know if you’re taking part on your blog.

  1. Your goal is similar to mine – don’t overcommit! I found myself competing in so many different reading challenges it became an additional source of stress. I had to just put aside the lists and focus on what I wanted to read.
