It certainly appears that 2009 is rapidly drawing to a close. Since the dawn of this project back in August, I've reviewed 62 books! I'm looking forward to a great year in 2010 for sure. Thank you to all of you for reading and commenting on my posts, and for sharing your blogs, insights and ideas as well.
I do have a few blog-related goals that I'm hoping to accomplish in the new year. Here are the highlights:
-Successfully complete the challenges I signed up for, and limit any new challenges until I can cross some of them off.
-Hold another contest! But what should I give away? I'm completely open to suggestions.
-Get my memes scheduled in advance- Illustrated Friday, Cha-Cha, etc.
-Build up a buffer of reviews, in case life gets in the way.
I'm sure there are others but these are the goals I'm working on right now.
Life-wise, one thing I want to be better about in the new year is taking care of the mail more regularly. Stuff comes and then it sits around, especially if it's junk mail, and then there's a huge pile of crap that needs to be gone through, which takes way more time than it would have if I'd just tossed the garbage on the day it arrived. It's a small thing but it'll make a big difference.
Anyway, this will probably be my last post before the new year. I'm out of town visiting friends for New Year's and am hoping to get a lot of reading done while I travel, so there will be a bunch of reviews and good things to look forward to once I'm back in action. Illustrated Friday is locked and loaded, so you won't completely be denied my charms (har!)
If you're going out for New Year's, be safe, if you're staying home, have fun, and I'll see everyone in 2010!
