Bloggiesta Challenge: Set Goals for 2010

To read about this bloggiesta mini-challege, click here. I wasn't originally going to do this mini-challenge, because I've never been a huge fan of resolutions, since this is a new blog I cracked and decided to write up the informal goals that I've had in my head for the last week anyway:

Read at least one book a week. I know this probably doesn't seem like a lot to bloggers who read 100+ books a year, but up until now I've been lucky to manage to read one book a month, so this is actually kind of an ambitious goal for me. I'm hoping to read a minimum of 52 books this year. So far, I'm on track (2 books per 2 weeks in 2010), but it's still early ;)

Explore New Genres. I want to broaden my reading horizons, so to speak. I'd like to delve into more non-fiction, and maybe try out some genre's I've never really touched, such as mystery or scifi.

Comment regularly on other blogs. Until I started this blog a week ago, I lurked around tons of blogs while never, ever commenting. My innate shyness coupled with inertia made it hard to get started, but eventually I wanted to participate in conversations rather than just observing them, so voila!

Post to this blog regularly. This past week I've been trying to think of content for my blog, and ways to keep things interesting. I'm probably going to be posting 1-2 reviews a week, and I don't want the rest of my blog taken over completely by memes and challenges, as addicting as they are. I also ostensively started this blog to rant about both books and TV, but I don't want the blog taken over by that either. I think I may limit myself to a maximum of one TV-related post a week, and see how that goes.

That's all I have for now!

  1. Good goals. I've been contemplating joining the blogiesta, but I still don't know. I have also been trying to figure out exactly what to do with my blog besides reviews, challenges and memes. I think I'm just going to see how it evolves as I go. Good luck with everything!
