Feature and Follow {9}

Feature and Follow is a weekly post hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

"Increase blog followers, gain book blog followers, and make new friends with the book blogger Feature & Follow."

This week's question is:

Q. What new year's blogging or writing resolution have you placed on yourself?

I don't make New Year's "resolutions".  And the reason is because I feel it's too much pressure to put on myself for if I don't accomplish it I feel like a failure.  However, I am a firm believer in setting goals (which I suppose if we want to get nit-picky it's all semantics, and probably the same thing).  Goals however, I do not feel like a failure if I don't make.  It's something I aim for and feel really good about when I complete it.  Maybe it's mental, but I set goals all the time, not just at New Year's, and it takes the pressure of failing off of me if I don't meet a goal.

Now for my blogging goals this year, I have several.  

#1 - to read all of the books (that are new reads) I got for Christmas
#2 - to read all of the Netgalley books I requested in 2012 before requesting any more in 2013
#3 - to reach 500 followers by the end of the year
#4 - to participate in Blog Tours, of which the first I was contacted about participating in February 18th!  Yay me!
#5 - to be a blessing to every blogger, follower and friend that takes the time to come by my blog
