I won’t be implementing any new goals for the final Quarter of the Year. My father was diagnosed with bowel cancer about halfway through June, which meant I needed to put a lot of things on hold. The only reason I have published any blog posts for the month of June is due to the fact that I wrote and scheduled them in advance.
At this point, because I am essentially a Quarter behind, I don’t have high hopes of completing any my reading and blogging goals, however, I think it’s better to try and fail rather than never try at all.
Reading Goals for 2019:
Read: Goal = 120 Books
Reviewed: Goal = 40 Books
Current Number of Books Read = 40 books
Current Number of Books Reviewed = 15 Books Reviewed
I don’t think I’m going to complete my Reading or Book Review Goals for this year, however, I may get to 50 books read and 20 books reviewed. I’ll aim for that and see how I go.
Reading Challenges for 2019:
Australian Women Writer’s Challenge:
Goal = read and review 4 books
Achieved Thus Far = 3 out of 4
I’ve only got one more of these to do and then I’ll be finished for the year. I’ll be reading and reviewing Fence – Volume 3 by C.S. Pacat, Johanna the Mad (Artist), and Joana Lafuente. So, that should pretty much cover it.
RMFAO Genre Challenge 2019:
Goal = read and review 10 books fitting the monthly genre theme
Achieved Thus Far = 5 out of 10
I’ve kind of given up on reading by genre. I’m too much of a mood reader.
Stim Toy Reviews:
Goal = 12 Stim Toy Review posts
Achieved = 09 out of 12
I definitely think I get 3 more Stim Toy Review blog posts written by the end of the year.
The number of Blog Posts:
Minimal = 52 blog posts
Maximum = 104 blog posts
Current Number of Blog Posts (not including this one) = 44 Blog Posts.
I don’t think I can get to the maximum number by the 31st of December, however, I do think I can manage to get to the minimum number of blog posts written. I am down but I’m not out (*gasp* a sports metaphor!)
Recipe Yum and Weekend Notes: write 9 articles in each category for the year.
Current Number of Weekend Notes articles: 4 articles
Current Number of Recipe Yum articles: I think I’ve written 3? The Recipe Yum website doesn’t show the date in which the article was published (super helpful *sarcasm*)
Honestly, I’m considering dropping these articles from my writing goals. I’d much rather replace these articles with writing scripts for YouTube Video.
Speaking of YouTube videos, I’m not going to bother attempting making any more videos at this point, I just don’t have the time. Right now, I don’t have the time to do the bare minimum on my blog, let alone taking on extra projects. I’m also not happy with my current YouTube Channel set up, so I might delete the channel and start over. IDK. I haven’t decided yet.
Anyway, that’s the game plan so far, where or not I manage to complete my tasks by the end of the year is another matter altogether. Wish me luck because I am going to need all the luck I can find.
