Bookish Resolutions March 1st 2023 Check In! #BookishRes23

Posted March 1, 2023 by Berls in Bookish Resolutions / 4 Comments

Bookish Resolutions Challenge is about setting New Year’s Resolutions for Reading, book blogging or Writing… and as we hit month 3 of 2023 it’s time do a check in!

How are we doing with our goals?

Well, all things considered I (Berls) think we’re doing okay, though we’ve definitely already hit our share of bumps. It’s too early to say anyone has failed yet – this is a great chance to take a look, modify and move forward doing better!

Berls’s Update:

I track my goals every week on my Sunday Post but here’s a reminder of my goals and how I’ve been doing:

  1. Review all books on goodreads within 1 week of reading them. I really wish this goal were going better. I have been doing better about writing reviews than I had been, but I do have 21 outstanding reviews to write as of writing this post. If I keep my current pace of review writing that should be caught up by the end of March though. #fingerscrossed
  2. Keep up with My TBR List each month! So far, on track! I’ve gotten all the posts up on time, and I’ve read and reviewed all (only 2 but I’m taking it!) the books on schedule thus far.
  3. Complete all my COYER tasks on time. Yes! This I am keeping up with thanks to our Trello board!
  4. Sunday Post at least once each month.Yes! I’ve had a Sunday post every week since the new year.
  5. Set aside minimum 1 hour each week for blogging.  Yes, I’m definitely spending at least 1 hour working on blog tasks but I’m realizing that 1 hour is barely enough to make a dent. I probably need 5-10 hours a week to do all that I want to do.

So yeah, I have room to grow but I’m happy with how I’m doing thus far!

Your turn!

About Berls

Michelle adopted me as part of her blog when I decided to close down my blog, Fantasy is More Fun. The blog was dying, but my love of reading and the blogosphere was still strong as ever - so I found my new home here at Because Reading!

I'm not just a book lover, but a one time author (that hopes to be more in the future), wife, mom to the cutest, happiest, best 2 year old and step-mom to the craziest, sweetest 22 year old on the planet. My family mean everything to me and they appear frequently in the Sunday Post with Berls. So grab a glass of wine and chat books, blogging, and family with me!

  1. Great job with your bookish resolutions! I’m doing pretty good with mine but my main focus has been trying to read books I’m excited to read and be a bit more of a mood reader.

  2. I need to set more time aside for blogging tasks and visiting other bloggers. I visit my favorites, but don’t always comment unless I have something to say. And well…we won’t talk about the last month where I completely disappeared 😅 Despite that, I’m doing decent on my goals this year.

  3. yes, I struggle with the amount of time on blogging. For me it’s probably 4-6 hours a day at times. I read a lot of blogs I visit but I only comment if I have something to say. Otherwise I’d be another hour on blog visiting DAILY! I think you are doing awesome. I have to write the reviews shortly after reading or I forget things I want to say.
