Tell Me Something Tuesday: Blogging Goals for 2022

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About  and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.

I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…

What are your blogging goals for the new year?

I mentioned last week that I’m joining/co-hosting Bookish Resolutions with Michelle this year. Details on post, but basically, I’m setting 5 “bookish” goals for the year. Here are my goals:

  1. Blog ahead at least 1 week. I’m going to monitor and adjust throughout the year, hoping to get myself to a point where I’m actually more like a month ahead. But at a minimum, I want to be 1 week ahead on posts (except Sunday Post because well, it’s an as we go post).
  2. Keep a blogging planner. I bought the 2022 Fully Booked planner and it’s a new venture for me. I want to give it a real go this year – keeping up with what I read, favorites, blog posts, etc. I’ll measure success by how many days I complete/skip each month, with 70% complete being success.
  3. Visit & comment on 7 posts a week. I really want to do more like 5/day. But seeing as I’m struggling to even visit and comment 1/day, I think it’s better to start with a lower goal and work my way up.
  4. Reply to comments each week. I read every single comment I receive. But I have a really hard time replying. So I’m going to try and set aside time each evening to reply to comments.
  5. Review books before starting a new book/on the same day – So if I finish a book while I’m driving, for example, I’ll start the next audio book right away. But that means I need to review the one I finished that day. But I could also write a review several days later – IF I haven’t started the next book yet.

What about you? What are your blogging goals for 2022?

Next week’s topic: Resolutions/words of the year – do you do them? What are they for 2022?

  1. Love these goals! I need to do a lot of this, too. Namely keeping up with reviews and comments >.< I'm currently 28 reviews behind!! I always say I'm going to draft a post when I start a book so I can review it immediately after finishing, but it never happens lol. I want to be more active in the blogging community again, too… I miss it. What are your fave blogs to follow?! A lot of my old faves have sadly stopped blogging since I've been absent.

  2. Scheduling saved my blogger butt – I started a few years ago and never looked back. I hope it works for you too! As for comments, that’s always the sore point with us all, isn’t it? But hey, we do what we can. I try to touch base with everyone at least once a week. Better than nothing LOL. Good luck!

    My goal is to keep posting at least once a week. That’s something I can sustain, so if I happen to do more, that will only be a nice plus.

    • I used to do much better scheduling in advance but now I struggle to keep at least a week ahead. But if I can get all my posts done for the following week over the weekend (and that’s really just 2-3 posts a week really), then I’m good!

      Yeah comments are hard! I just want to visit everyone and truly do not have time. But I’m finding time to at least make a few stops each day, so hopefully I’ll get to everyone 1 time a week at least. Good luck with your goals as well!

  3. These are good goals. I kind of want to try #3 but I don’t think I can. I think it’s better to try to visit and comment and not count how many.

    Have a lovely day.

  4. I’ve always had the rule with Netgalley that I had to review a book before I could request another and that always kept me in check – there at least lol

    I want to get better at commenting too. I used to be great but now a week will go by and I have to play catch up.

    • Yeah it’s really hard to keep up with commenting – there’s so many blogs and just not enough time! But I’m doing better than I have in a while, we’ll see if I can keep that up.

      That’s a great rule with Netgalley! That would imply keeping yourself in check when requesting, something I was never too good at lol!

  5. Jen

    OH! I like the goal of finishing the review right away. I’ve already finished two books in 2022 and haven’t written the reviews! EEp! Good luck in reaching your goals – as long as you are having fun!!

  6. I see how these are good goals. I also REALLY want to be a week ahead. I do the commenting daily pretty well although it lags a bit when I’m traveling or really busy. I try to write my reviews within a day or two but again that doesn’t always happen, usually within a week though. I try for similar. I also set up the shell of my review when I get the ARC so all I have to do is put the review in after I read it.

  7. These all sound doable and like great goals. I have a similar plan as your #1; just hadn’t thought of it in terms of a goal–but I guess it is! Unfortunately, I don’t have access to my computer right now (my husband broke my charging cord and of course all the spares in the house don’t fit or aren’t the right wattage). So, I am behind on that plan already. I’ll get there though!

    I probably should adopt #5, but sometimes it is hard to manage, depending on when I finish a book. I do want to at least jot down my impressions so I have something to work from until I can get to a computer to write my review.

    Good luck with your goals!

    • Oh no! That stinks about your laptop cord – I hate when technology failures make it harder to do what I need to. I hope you get a replacement cord soon! I think just jotting down ideas is enough… I’m horrible at doing that and then not remembering where I wrote them or what I meant, so I just need to write the review lol
