1. Stop putting off things until the last minute
Whenever I don't do something way before the deadline I became extremely anxious and start worrying over not being able to finish that post. But the thing is that I still rarely do anything sooner than I have to. Horrible habit and I'd love to finally abandon it.
2. Be a little more open towards others' opinion
I'm really stubborn, so stubborn that whatever you say most likely won't change my opinion. When talking about books I'm not like that but when I read a negative review of my favorite book I'll refuse to see the reviewers point. Meanwhile I expect everyone to try to understand my point. How is that fair? It isn't and that's the reason why I'll try to be a little more open-minded about books that I disliked.
3. Try to read more paperbacks again
E-books are easier to carry around than real books, that's the only reason why I read more of them but I want to change this because nothing is the same as holding a real book in your hands.
4. Follow through what I start
For example I started the monthly wrap-ups but ended up giving them up due to lack of time. I started the Dreamy Discussions but only wrote one so far and I haven't even mentioned my (Don't) Judge A Book By It's Cover posts (1 & 2) I'm terrible at not giving up on things, just terrible.
5. Find new blogs to follow
I only follow approx. 50 blogs on Bloglovin and I think some of these bloggers aren't even active anymore. This way I have 10 to 15 new posts on my feed every day but I don't view all of these and I only comment when I have something to say. Anyways, I think I'd be able to follow more blogs thus interact with more bloggers and here comes my 6th point.
6. Contact more bloggers
I've met with some AWESOME people through blogging but I'm still having a hard time starting conversation with bloggers, it's so unnerving. I'd like to be more open but whenever I try to talk to someone I feel pushy and am thinking about what to say way too hard. Anyhow I'm already quite proud of myself because I just did a buddy-read with Holly from The Fox's Hideaway and when I started blogging I never really thought that I'd be chatting with anyone
7. Be brave (and determined) enough to create new things on my blog
I have some great ideas about how to try to spice up (now that sounds corny) my blog a bit but I'm not sure I'll be able to do them so I'd rather not say any details haha.
8. Simply enjoy reading and blogging
When I first started blogging I didn't care when and what I posted but as time went by I saw that many other bloggers have all their posts planned weeks (!) before they actually post them. I felt like I had to post at least three or four times a week to be a 'good' blogger and then I found TTT and WoW. I loved both memes but what I loved more than writing the posts was checking out your picks and leaving comments. When school started it became hard to participate in two memes that are on successive days but I kept going because I didn't want to give up either one of them. A few months ago I chose to give up on WoW. Why? Because it became more of a burden than fun and that was sad because I didn't start blogging to be nervous all the time.
Anyhow I want to be able to enjoy reading the way I did before I first participated in the Goodreads challenge. At that time I didn't care about how many books I read, just read for fun and I want that back. And to go back to the time when I wasn't nervous about posting every other day. I hope I'll succeed.
9. Use my tumblr more frequently
While this might not sounds like a bookish resolution it is. My tumblr is entirely dedicated to books with sometimes a few tv show or movie related gifs.
10. Finally win a giveaway
This isn't on me but honestly who doesn't want to win a book giveaway? I'd be glad for the free book of course but more than that I'd love to win something. It sounds crazy I know but this was the best resolution I could come up with so imagine the others haha.
Alright, these were my top ten book/blog related resolutions? What are yours?
