January 6h: 2023 Reading & Blogging Goals

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?

Reading goals for 2023 – I’m taking part in Reading Challenges for the first time this year, and if I can read 5 – 10 books for each of the three challenges I’m taking part in, I’ll be very happy. I’m hoping to read 70 books this year, as for the last few years I’ve consistently hit 90+, but I don’t want the (admittedly self imposed) pressure of reading 90+, so I’m happy to keep it at a lower number and just be happy if I exceed it.

For genres, I read such a wide range anyway I don’t feel like there are particular ones I should be reading. The other thing I want to do this year in regards to books is catalogue at least some of the physical, unread ones I have here. When I was looking for books for my reading challenge, I found it hard to add in physical ones, as they’re dotted around the house and it’s difficult to start looking through them all! So I’m going to add what I can to my Books spreadsheet, that also lists the various arcs I have.

Blogging goals…I don’t think I really have one? My blog has a small number of subscribers, and to be honest if that increases at all I’m very happy. I want to continue with my current ‘schedule’ such as it is, and at some point I would love to be more than a week ahead with scheduled posts! I also want to participate in Blogmas and Blogtober again, as I find them to be really fun. I don’t think right now I’m looking to do anything differently, as such, as I feel I really did hit a stride last year and worked out what works for me, and right now I’m happy sticking to that.

As always I’d love to hear from you – what are your blogging goals for 2023? Whatever they are, I wish you the absolute best in achieving them.
