Bookish Resolutions Challenge is about setting New Year’s Resolutions for Reading, book blogging or Writing…You can sign up via blog post, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Tiktok or Goodreads!

This year we are sticking with the basics of Reading, Blogging and Writing. I am excited to get back into this challenge and I hope you are too. Now let’s get to all the rules and the sign up! 🙂

Sign Up is between now to February 28th, the challenge starts January 1st and ends December 31st 2023

  2. Create a signup post and add it to the Linky on this post (sign up before Feb 28th)
  3. Since this is a year long challenge we ask that you pick goals with some longevity. Pick a goal that will take you no less than 6 months to complete.
  4. Once your goals are set you cannot change them.
  5. Three time a year we will have an update to see how you are doing. March 1st, June 1st and September 1st. The last update will be the wrap up post.
