Hey everyone! Today I’m looking back on a post I did about a year ago in which I set myself a few goals for the past year. Let’s see how I did!
1) I wanted to read 60 books.
I have definitely accomplished the first goal on my list! Right now, I’ve read a total of 86 books and I plan on finishing some more before the year ends. Yay for me!
2) I wanted to find my own touch for my blog.
I think I did this. It’s hard to say for this type of goal. I do think there are still some things I need to find my own style on, but I have come a far way since a year ago! I have found a review format that works for me, a signature colour, a wrap-up format, etc. !
3) I wanted to really work on my blog.
Although I had some moments this year when I found it difficult to keep up with this blog, I’m still counting this as accomplished! After all, I’m still here which is quite an achievement for me. I’ve also found a posting schedule that works for me, so that’s good!
4) I wanted to read more diverse.
I did this, but probably not enough. I want to continue reading more diversely in 2018! I have come quite some way though. For example, every book on my christmas wish list this year is diverse, so that’s awesome!
5) I wanted to think positive.
I succeeded in doing this. I have really changed my attitude in general. I look at things more positively and I’m more grateful. Not that I was an awful person before or anything.
6) I wanted to read the books on my 2017 TBR.
Well here is the first (kind of) fail. I didn’t read all the books on that list. Out of the 16 I read 11, lost interest in 2 and still want to read 3. Actually, that’s not too bad after all for a loose TBR.
7) I wanted to keep my bookmark collection under control.
I put this goal on there as a joke, because I didn’t think it would happen. Surprisingly, it did! I really kept it under control.
8) I wanted to inspire / spread positivity.
9) I wanted to let go of anger towards some people.
I made progress for this goal. Still I don’t think I’ll ever come to a point of completely forgiving some people. Oh well.
10) I wanted to step up my reviews.
HA HA HA. That didn’t happen. I still don’t review most books I read and some I put off for way too long.
So that’s how I did! Overall pretty good I think. I’m proud of myself. My 2018 goals are coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled for those! There are some exciting ones in there! Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed! See you next time!
