Am I believer of new year’s resolution? To be honest, I’m not.
For more than two decades, I have not created nor written such. That doesn’t mean I hate them, it’s just that it has never been a habit. 🙂
So for this year, because of The Broke and the Bookish, I would like to give it a try. (Operative word: TRY!) 😀
January 5: Top Ten Resolutions We Have For 2015 (can be bookish, personal resolutions)
I don’t think I can write ten (10) bookish resolutions, so this list will include my plans and hopes and yes, resolutions as a reader, a writer and a blogger. ❤
- To (FINALLY) give Harry Potter series a try.
Please don’t be angry Potter fans. I have nothing against J.K. Rowling or Harry Potter or anyone from this series. It’s not them, it’s me! 😀
- To (HOPEFULLY) read 50 books this year.
I am ashamed that I was not able to finish the PopSugar 2015 Reading Challenge. 😦 I am two books away from wrapping it up with flying colors… but… I failed.
- To read a classic with a happy heart!
I have proven that I am not an old soul when it comes to books, but this year, I hope to read even just one classic. 🙂 (Hey, I read two classics last year! Maybe three?!) But I admit, I am not happy when I read them. So I hope I will be happy to read one next year. Any recommendations? 🙂
- To read more of local books proudly written by Filipinos!
Patriotic as it may seem, I plan to give local writers a try! It’s because out of 159 reads, only 2 are locals. It’s a shame!
- To try new authors!
I’ve done that last year and it proved to be exciting! I have stumbled to new found gems and I hope to discover more gems this year! Again, any recommendations?
- To read more!
A Reading Writer’s tagline is “I read because I write. I write because I read.” So that explains it. 🙂
- To go out and write out of the box.
I have tried a lot of new things this year! Thanks to Writing 101 and 201, this blog has been more diverse and exciting to visit. I want to keep the juices flowing and I hope I can write more without sacrificing quality,
- To write book reviews, more book reviews!
It is a bit of a shame that I have so few reviews here. The writer-part of A Reading Writer is in full force last year but the reader-part isn’t. So I hope to put a balance on it.
- To blog more consistently. (Weekly features, ahem!)
I tried so hard to blog and to do that, I set weekly features that I can follow. But still, I failed! So this year, I hope to change that. HOPE!
- To follow more, comment more, inspire more, write more!
It’s self-explanatory, right? 🙂
How about you?
What are your plans, goals and changes that you would want to do this year?
Can you relate?
I would love to talk to you.
