I was tagged by the lovely Claire to do the "This Time Next Year Tag." Make sure you check out her tag too! Thanks so much, Claire! I love the idea of this tag!
I made a goals post in January with 5 goals I wanted to complete in 2017 so today I think I'll expand on them a little and give you all a little check-in of where I am right now.
This is the first tag I have ever done that has a list of rules since this tag is about your goals, not question-based.
1. Thank the person who tagged you
2. Set yourself goals for the next year and explain how you’re going to reach them
3. Tag at least 5 blogger friends to complete the tag
4. Write a post in 365 days reflecting on your goals and how you achieved them
THIS TIME NEXT YEAR...
I want to upload more posts than I have ever uploaded before
I hope to have uploaded 75-100+ blog posts in 2017. I am already at 51! This post makes 52! I still can't believe I have managed so many already! I have been uploading every other day and so far every day in April! Uploading every other day was also on that goals list! I am so proud of myself for doing it so far! I keep pushing myself every day to keep uploading and I'm loving it so much!
I want to read everything on my reading list and more
Another thing on my goals list was to read all 17 books on my reading list. I have read 2 so far. I need to step up my game. I think I'm going to set aside 2 hours a day for reading. I need to get back on the reading game! I also wait to add more books to the list.
I want to use a lot more of my own photos on my blog
I have been using a lot of stock photos and I want to use more of my own photos. I have been doing that a lot since January and I have a blog photo session scheduled tomorrow!
I want to finish my first novel
I have a couple of novels I am writing and I want to finish one by 2018. One I started in Dec of 2016 and one has been floating in my head since I was 14. I haven't been writing them much. I need to start setting aside more time to write my books.
I am going to keep it at my original 5. If you only have 1-5 goals it is easier to keep to them. I need to read more and get to work on my novel but my blog goals are going strong!
