2017 Goals


A very, very Happy New Year to everyone! I hope this year is filled with awesome new characters, beautiful writing and new wonderful stories.

Goodreads Challenge:

My challenge is to again read 50 books this year. Since I failed my reading challenge in 2016 with only 38 books, I’m going to try reading more short stories/novellas and graphic novels. I haven’t read a single one this past year and that needs to change.

Blog Post Goals:

  • Post at-least once a week
  • Start doing another meme. Memes are a great way to find and interact with more people around the blogosphere. The only meme I’m currently doing is the Diversity Spotlight Thursdays and I know there are so many other good ones out there
  • Write some discussion posts. I love reading discussion posts on other blogs and I have ideas for them but I just don’t get around to writing them for some reason
  • Do more tags, they’re always a lot of fun

Blogosphere Goals:

  • Blog hop more! I’ve gotten better at blog-hopping and commenting on other blogs but I need to do it more often. I usually just read posts and like them without taking the time to comment
  • Be more active on Twitter

Life Goals:

  • Get an internship or a part time job. I am currently a college student and I need to start gaining experience in my field (computer science) but it’s hard to find a job closeby with my limited experience and within my available time frame *sigh*
  • Maintain a good GPA in my second and third semesters of college
  • Be more open minded towards others and more outgoing (it’s a work in progress)
  • Buy more books from independent book stores
  • Re-read more books

I guess that’s pretty much it. Can’t think of any others right now.

What’s your top goal for 2017?

  1. Those are some really good goals! Life goals, those internships are really helpful in landing a full-time position after you graduate. I did the same in my field of Accounting. Take advantage of those career days, when companies come into your school to advertise about their firm. Blogging goals.. yeah, me too, I need to blog hop more. Time is just so limited to do everything haha..

    1. Thanks Jasmine! That’s so awesome! I hope I get an opportunity like that, fingers crossed! We have a career fair coming up in a few weeks and I’ll definitely be going. I’ve been so bad at blog hopping the past few days! Why can’t we just stop time?

  2. This is an ambitious collection of goals, Shouni! I wish you all the best with it. I also love discussion posts. I would love to participate if you come up with some for your blog.
    Good luck reaching all your goals! I’ll be watching. 🙂
