Bloggiests Mini-Challenge!

Bloggiest Mini-Challenge: Setting Goals

Part of Bloggiesta is mini-challenges - tasks to help you spruce up your blog, some of which also include prizes participants can win. There's a list of new mini-challenges for this year on Suey's blog, It's All About Books. Danielle has posted Flashback mini-challenges on her blog, There's A Book. These are challenges from past Bloggiesta years.

One of the Flashbacks designed and hosted by Amy of My Friend Amy, a wonderful blog, is about Setting Goals for your blog. This is a challenge I desperately needed! As a result, and lots of thanks to Amy whose goals inspired my own, I've come up with a list of goals for my blog in 2012:

**Overall, by the end of 2012, I want to write a blog I want to read.
**By the end of 2012, I want to decide, once and for all, if I want to move my blog to  If my answer is yes, then I want to move it.
**By August I want to have a schedule for posting as well as posts ready to go so my posting isn’t up in the air or last minute.
**By early June I want to be writing reviews I’m proud of but that take me less time to write than they do now.

These may not look like much, but these goals are huge and will, hopefully, improve my blog ten fold! (Hoping, hoping!)


  1. OOoooo! BIG goals and worthy. I will cheer you on.

  2. Hi Amy, these are great goals. I'm sure you'll succeed at getting them implemented. As for Wordpress I really like it. I was nervous about moving but it's been fine. I'd kind of like to change my posts up one of these days. We'll see. Have a great weekend!

  3. Very big goals indeed! I am rarely happy with my reviews - my "ability" to write them seems so contingent on something over which I have no control: mood? inspiration? the ability to tap some inner resource? not sure, but I do know I can't call it up at will!

  4. Excellent goals! I'm tinkering with ideas about how to write reviews, too. They do take so long and I never know if anyone even reads all of it.
