I love the new challenge hosted by trips down imagination road and Because Reading. It’s a mini goal setting meets reading challenge. Perfect for me.
The Goal: Set New Years Resolutions for books and book blogging plus you can have a personal goal, too.
The Rules: You can sign up anytime between December 1st to March 1st, the challenge starts January 1st and ends December 31st. You have 3 Main goals to choose from: Blogging Goal, Reading Goal or Personal Goal. You must pick at least 2 Main goals and each main goal must have at least 1 (on up to how ever many you want) sub-goals (except Blogging Goals you need a minimum of 3).
On the 30th of each month (and the 29th for February) create an update post for your goals and add the post to the Linky on one of the two blogs. Once you do a sign up post, you can add or take away goals as you would like, BUT on Jan 1st you will no longer be able to change the list. Use the Hashtag #Bookishresloutions to update throughout the year.
