January 6: 2023 Reading & Blogging Goals (Aria)
Prompts: What are your reading goals for 2023? Do you have a specific number of books, or particular genres you want to read? What are your blogging goals for 2023? What do you want to do differently with blogging than you did last year?
Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to another LTB here at DTRH, and unsurprisingly, it’s a new goal-setting session. While I am not usually one for resolution setting and all that, it is of course pertinent to project into the future and set some plans for this year, if not just in broad brushstrokes. It’s been a tough few years for everyone, and I really wonder if this will mean more ambitious goals or less in light of that. We’ll just have to see!
I don’t have too many reading goals for this year. I can’t believe I still haven’t done an audiobook; my friend did say it took her 4 to 5 books to really get used to it though, so maybe I just need to dive in and try something. I just love the visual aspect of reading so much, it’s so hard to give that up for just audio. I don’t know if others can relate to that. If you have switched to many audiobooks (but still prefer regular), how did you guys make the switch? I’d love to know.
I specifically set a less lofty goal this year for reading number. Last year I was barely around 30 (or maybe I was bad at keeping track this year) when I originally completed more than 50 the year before. School just got unexpectedly busy and it seems like I can’t handle all the readings on top of my readings. Still, I generally try to read as much as possible and I will make time for it when I can. There are just those periods of hibernation which are just inevitable with school.
With the blog, I definitely want to work that well into my schedule again. I think it hasn’t been too bad, but I’d like to improve from last year and be even more consistent and post more new content. This is of course all contingent on school not consuming my life, but that remains to be seen. A goal is just a goal after all!
I’m not sure what I would really do differently about blogging this year but I think I just generally want to try and prioritize more and see if I can be a bit more efficient with me time. Sometimes taking a break is just necessary though, so it’s definitely a balancing act between those two things! We shall see how that works out this year.
What are all your goals for this year?
