I started my blog at the start of 2016… and failed drastically. Behold, the return of the blogger. I know you’ve seen like 297 different resolutions posts but i really like making lists and crossing them off, even if they’re insane. So ill start with my 2016 resolution list and then Giveaway details at bottom of post!
1) Read 100 novels.
Nope. I know is didn’t read 100, but according to goodreads, i read EIGHT books. I sucked at blogging, Instagramming and keeping record of reading on goodreads. I guess i read about 30, it was bad.
2) Get 100 Followers on this blog.
Maybe if i blogged past January… i would get there. I currently have 70 which is pretty close considering.
3) 3000 Followers on Instagram.
A little crazy. But I did get to 2000 followers last week so hip hip hurray!
4) Keep to my schedule of blogging
LOL I’m still trying.
5) Make awesome graphics for my blog
I think I’m getting there. I’m pretty proud of how it looks like right now, but I want to add more things to it.
6) Utilise notebooks
I ACTUALLY DID THIS! My boyfriend got me this amazing notebook which i write my reviews in and its beautiful and i ACTUALLY use it!
7) Read all the books I own and haven’t read yet.
hahahahha…. well i didnt read any ebooks or library books this year, but 50% of my reads were new purchases.
8) Read ALL my review copies!
I’ve gotta kick NetGalley in the butt and tell them that I CAN have a 99% read-to-review ratio. Because i did not do that last year.
9) Not to give up on any project.
This was a success. Im doing university applicatiosn right nnow and just about rounding it off. I dont want any half done painting, projects, i want to blog weekly at the bare minimum.
10) Try Ironing.
Still deathly afraid.
