Recapping 2018 and looking ahead to 2019
Feel free to join us!
Out with the OLD: 2018
Challenges used to be my thing. And in 2018, I didn’t really do well participating in any of them. Even the very few I bothered to sign up for (the ones I co-host). The only challenge I think I really did well with were the Can You Read a Series in a month Challenges… because they fit my mood. Binge read a series? Yes please, that’s what I’m already doing anyway.
But not doing amazing participating in challenges is not that big of deal. What I feel very bad about is being a pretty sucky co-host. My heart just has not been in it and Michelle has been doing most the work for the challenges on her own. I jump in a host a twitter party, fix a post, do some of the social media… but the ideas, the planning, all that has been really Michelle.
In with the NEW: 2019
In the interest of being a better co-host, I’ve quite literally JUST decided that participation in challenges will be pretty back-burner for me. What I mean is, I will participate only in challenges I’m co-hosting and my #1 goal in those challenges will be to do my part as a co-host. Any actual reading that goes with it will be a bonus.
Check out the challenges we are hosting at Because Challenges, our new site for all our challenges. Here’s my goals for participation in each of them:
- Post at least one time a week
- Visit blogs at least one time a week
- Work on something for one of our challenges at least one time a week
I’m going with Professor AuthorLuv for this semester, beginner level class. My author will continue to be JA Huss, as I’ve been working on trying to read all her books for a couple years now and I’m getting closer. If she’d stop writing (gasp! no, don’t do that!) I’d have a chance.
I’m going to go for just 2 anthologies. Seeing as I’ve read a grand total of one over the past 3 years, I feel like that’s a big goal honestly. I own several though, so it’ll be nice to actually start reading them.
Posts in July & August
