Question: What are your blogging goals for the new year?

Answer: My well thought out, deep philosophical answer is - keep on keepin' on.

I am so far away from the days of scheduling, reviewing and all that so if I read and manage to keep a little spot to share my thoughts about books, tv, life...then I will be happy. 

Very boring answer but that's it!

What are your blogging goals for the new year?

  1. This nugget of wisdom is important: the most critical thing for us bloggers is simply to keep blogging. Stay alive, even if our posts are sporadic, disjointed and about weird tangents. I've been struggling to keep my so-called "fashion blog" going without any fashion. Long story. But I plan to return to creating/displaying outfits in 2022 which is my biggest resolution. Happy New Year!

    1. Blogging can feel intensely personal and it's hard not getting caught up in doing it better/perfect etc.

      But I find most readers don't notice/care/and even like when we go off script and understand when we need breaks or a change of pace. While we agonize over it lol

      It's hard to be at this for an extended period of time (13 years for me)and have the exact same tastes we had at the beginning. Sometimes you need to change it up and maybe come back to things - like fashion for you.

  2. That's not a boring answer it's honest. I think the past 2 years has been a lot, I know I haven't found the motivation for blogging so the fact you just want to keep on keeping on it brilliant. I think that's my aim for this year too. I am attempting some reading challenges but my main goal is to remember what I love about reading again and read some more books I own.

    1. I just took a lot of pressure off myself worrying about it. It doesn't get me anywhere. It's not like it makes me blog/read more. I end up wanting to quit lol

      This way - I'm here when I have something to say - people still seem to visit and chat so it works for me.

  3. That's my life philosophy right now

  4. Count me in to the keep on keepin' on philosophy. I'm right there with you. I do what I can (or more like I do what I want) and that's that. No schedule, no timeline, no expectations.

  5. LOL, you and Linda crack me up (I just read her post).

    In a way, though, even if I AM scheduling, etc., I'm keeping it simple myself: my goal, as usual, is to post at least once a week

    I hope you'll manage to read more and enjoy blogging better without the added pressure.

    1. I think you airways set your goals within your manageable level. Not so much as stress/pressure but as a keep on track motivator.

      You know me though...I rebel lol

      Delete
  6. You know what? That's the best we can do sometimes. No pressure's what we need. As long as you enjoy what you're doing, then I think you're doing great. :)

    1. Some people need goals and motivation while others (it's new lol) do better taking the pressure off.

      Whatever works!

      In my early days, goals and schedules helped me but now it overwhelms me. I'm just here to share and have fun.

  7. LOL... My original answer was "maintain status quo." But then I thought I should elaborate. hehe

    1. Ha! It seems like so many of us are... just try to survive this time in our world. Anything more is a bonus.

  8. A worthy goal! I hope to see you keep on going this year then

  9. That's a good goal. I don't really have any blogging goals. I just keep doing the same thing each year and that seems to work for me. lol

    1. Yup! Whatever works. In my early days schedules and goals worked better but I was doing a lot more author/publisher scheduled posts so I needed that. Now I need low pressure, fun.

  10. That's good, just keep on going without making goals. That's the way I like to go as well. I find any type of scheduling blogging kind of pointless since I probably more likely not keep the schedule anyway.

    Have a lovely day.

    1. I'm just SO adverse as soon as I set them. It's like my brain kicks in and automatically rebels lol

      Some people do much better with them so I think people shouldn't feel pressured either way and do what works for them.

      Delete
  11. Same here- I'm just going to do whatever. I've been talking more about shows seems like- shrug just keep on keeping on :)

  12. I love the approach that you have to this. In previous years I've been a lot more on top of scheduling, but I had to take a lot of time off from blogging last year. This year, if I can just find time when I can to create on the little space that I love so much, I think I'll be satisfied :) Wishing you a happy new year!

    1. In my earlier days of blogging I was big on scheduling but my goals and motivations are different now and low pressure blogging is what works for me these days.

      Happy New Year Claire!

  13. AMEN! That is where I am at, too. If I can somehow manage to stay afloat, I'll be happy at this point. Schedules? Never heard of her.

    1. I would never be able to keep a schedule even if I made one. My brain cannot compute lol

  14. Beautiful blog. Happy new year ��

  15. Sometimes a simple approach is best. I want to focus on books I already own this year!

  17. Not boring at all, it's a perfect goal! I have several goals, but they basically boil down to the same thing, keep it going ❤️

    1. It seems like a good enough goal for these days. It's hard to keep going! lol

  18. My only big goal is my No Kondo, Marie series where I dis on Marie Kondo. 😂

    Like you, it's basically keep on keepin' on. When I took my unexpected three week plus holiday break, I was considering not coming back at one point, but the break helped and here I am. 😁

    1. No Kondo?? Lol

      Breaks really help me. Just when I think I'm done and step away, I miss it.
