It’s a new year and new possibilities, and I ended the previous year and started it in a quiet celebration with just me and my other half. Eating good food, watching a movie and enjoying a few games of mastermind, that I was lucky enough to get for Christmas and that I had not played since childhood. I watched the lovely display of fireworks at midnight and then I went to bed. I even dropped the sparklers and bubbly this year and was just happy to be able to stay awake past midnight.
So I got up this morning and decided to sit down and write my blogging goals for the year. I had a hard time deciding how to set my goals, and what my level of ambition should be. The goals I set for myself are only going to be about my blogging, not about the amount of visits and likes and other things that I cannot control. And because I do this blog because I enjoy to write my goals will be set with that in mind. I will, at some stage, take another month like I did in November and do one blog post every day for a month. This year I have not been blogging for a full year and so I will set a goal to write a lot more this year. In 2019 I published 18,962 words, but for this year I am setting my goal quite a lot higher and aim to publish at least 100,000 words this year. It feels a little ambitious, but I need to push myself and so I hope at least some of those words will be worth reading.
Another thing I want to be better at is to leave more comments on the blog posts I read. I do enjoy reading a lot of blog posts and sitting down with a cup of coffee reading your blogs. But I do know that I am not the best at leaving comments, mostly because I feel that I don’t have to much interesting to say, but most people, myself included, enjoy when you leave them a few words. So I hope to be better at that this year.
Hope your New Year celebrations was the way you wanted it to be. Do you have any goals for your blogging this year? If so what sort of goals do you have?
