Mid Year Check In- New Years Resolution!

Posted June 30, 2015 by Nori in Challenges, Discussion Posts / 9 Comments

Well hello there everyone! Since today marks the end of the first half of the year 2015, I decided to make a Mid Year Check In post!

So, on December 30, 2014, I make a post with all of my New Years Resolutions. I am keeping all of the titles as the original post, and am going to tell you all what has happened since I’ve made this post. 🙂

Number One: I REALLY want to complete my 105 Challenge. 
Well…I’m working on it! I currently have not even read 50 books, but I’m hoping that I’ll still be able to complete the challenge!

Number Two: I want to participate every month for “The Reader’s Lounge” book club.
I…I was doing so well, but then June came along, and as of now (June 27th), I haven’t read the June book. *cues nervous face emoji* I’m not sure if I’ll get to it this month, but I WILL read it in July if I don’t have time in June.

Number Three: I want to reach 500 WordPress/email subscribers.
At the time of writing the original post (December 26, 2014), I was at 174 subscribers. As of writing THIS post, (June 27th, 2015), I’m currently at 317 subscribers. Will I make it to 500 WordPress subscribers? I’m not sure, but I certainly hope so!

Number Four: I want to be accepted for my first print ARC.
Yes, I am proud to say that I HAVE completed this goal!

Number Five: I want to go to BEA and Bookcon!
I did! I did! Check out my BEA Recap posts (I still have to finish writing them) but here is one, two, three, and four of my BEA Recap feature.

Number Six: I want to reach 1500+ followers on Twitter!
OH. MY. GOODNESS. I could not have timed this better if I tried. I REACHED 1500 TWITTER FOLLOWERS TODAY!!! Woohoo!!!

Number Seven: I want to start commenting more on other blogs!
Well, unfortunately I have failed on this goal. I really want to comment more, but I haven’t commented as much as I should/wanted to comment.

Number Eight: Read more NON review books!
I…I…nope. Just nope. This was a major fail.

Number Nine: Start my Sunday Street Team idea!
YES! This actually happened! 😀 For more information on this, click HERE.

Number Ten: Oh my goodness. Am I ready to reveal this? Am I? I guess…I guess it’s time.
THIS IS BOOKITCON!!! AND YES, IT IS HAPPENING!!! I WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE! And if you can’t attend the event, don’t forget. You can still buy books through online sales and get them personalized. 🙂

Well, there you go! This has been my mid-year check in post! What do you think? How have YOU been doing on your resolutions? Let me know in the comments below!
