Top 10 Tuesday: Top Ten Resolutions I Have For 2016

5 Jan

Resolve-to-Rock-meme-imageI have ten resolutions and now am slightly overwhelmed, but many are attainable and I’m really excited to start 2016 off on the right foot!  Overall, I resolve to rock!

Blog Goals

  1. Grow a larger readership. I have a lot of views on my blog, but I’d love to see my numbers go up!
  2. Participate in more Twitter chats.  I would love to meet more people and participate in readathons and book chats this year.
  3. Improve my social media connections.  I want to work on more effectively using my Twitter and creating Instagram images to push  my blog to more people.
  4. Invite guests to post and guest post. I think this would be a great way to connect with other librarians – by inviting them to guest post on my blog and by guest posting on other blogs.
  5. Revamp my blog. This was a goal last year, but I didn’t get a chance to work on it as much as I wanted to.  I’d like to take a closer look at my design and format, making it easier to find content.


Personal/Professional Goals

  1. Find professional development opportunities. I love to learn, so I want to find classes and webinars that will help me professionally.
  2. Read more picture books, easy readers, and early chapter books.  I’ve got middle grade fiction, but this year I really want to make sure that I’m reading the younger audience material being published.  And I’ve got a great start focusing on easy readers and early chapter books for my first Bout of Books.
  3. Run a 10K.  I trained for one last year and when I finally got to the race, I was a day late!!!!  So, I’m definitely doing it this year!
  4. Build a bookshelf.  I have an entire wall in my office that just begs for bookshelves and I’m hoping that I can tackle this project during the winter/spring.  I’m thinking industrial looking shelving with plumbing pipes and thick wooden shelves.
  5. Stay Positive.  I am not an overly positive person in general, but my goal is to try and be more positive at work and at home.


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
