In Which I Met Goals

Well here we are, 2012. Much easier to say than 2011. Man, the years go by fast, right?

You know what else happened with the passing of the year? My Blogoversary! That's right, I've been blogging for over 2 years. Yay! I blogged 148 times in 2011, which is not too shabby, if I say so myself. I have no clue what I’ve been talking about.

Also with the new year comes new resolutions!

I know some people are anti-resolutions. And I guess I understand why. But for me, that’s not an issue. My resolutions are actually goals I aim for. I like lists and goals. Goals are cool. If I don’t reach them, *shrug*, then I don’t reach them. It doesn’t upset me in the least. They’ll just be waiting for when I give it another shot.


Anyway, let's take a look at my resolutions from last year and see how I did:


2011 resolutions:

1. Query Glimpse of Another Shore (check. I only queried for 2 months before I paused, but it went much better than expected. No agent, yet, but that’s OK. I’ll keep working)

2. Finish another novel (check. Finished Break Free, which I utterly love. Like 1000x more than Glimpse.)

3. Get Hole-Ridden published (Super check!!! Sold that baby to Dark Moon Digest #6 (now available here)

4. Lose Weight (uncheck. THOUGH, I didn’t gain any weight. Which is a plus)

5. Read 55 books (check! It was close, but I pulled it out at the end)



So, not too shabby. Not at all. Wednesday I’ll list my 2012 goals, which are both the same and different. They’re at least more numerous.

Congrats on the blogoversary Sarah, and on the 55--that takes discipline. I was not where near that total for 2011.

Congrats on two years of blogging. I'm celebrating my one year blogoversary today as well.

And 55 books? I signed up to challenge myself to 35. I'm such a slacker.

Four out of five is good! Better than zero of zero. And happy two years of blogging.

TL Conway said...

55 books? Wow, you're totally my hero. :)

And based on our convo yesterday, I'd say you had one HELLUVA 2011! I can't wait to see what's in store for you this year!

Catherine Stine said...

You go, girl!
I can't even remember my 2011 resolutions!
I should make some for 2012.

Hannah Kincade said...

Not sure what I planned on doing last year...

I planned on moving. Check.

That's all I got.

Sarah :
Goals are good. I like to think in terms of lifestyle : writing every day, reading books each day, growing in my craft each day, thinking new ways to reach out to others each day. Congrats on the 2 years!! Roland

Talli Roland said...

Fab goals, and happy blogoversary! Yay!

Kristin Rae said...

look at you go!!! it's got to feel so good to be able to check off your goals!! here's to 2012!!!

Teebore said...

So did I, like, totally miss a post where you announced a name change to your blog, or has it been that way for months as I've just never noticed/completely forgot the change until now?

Nice job on the resolutions. I don't have anything real concrete this year, beyond a general notion of getting into shape (physically and financially) and having a less sucky year than 2011. Plus vague stuff like increase the blog readership, write more, etc.

Christine Rains said...

Four out of five is excellent! :) Good luck this year!

Lindsay said...

Congrats on 2 years of blogging. And yay on meeting four of your goals for 2011. :)

Cherie Reich said...

Congrats on two years blogging!

And you did awesome with your goals for last year. And yes, not gaining weight totally counts as a check in my book. :)

Anne Gallagher said...

How could you love anything more than GLIMPSE? I totes love that story and I am not into YA.

Great goals met. Good for you.

Cheree said...

Congrats on your goals, and also on the two years of blogging. Hope this year is just as good.

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm impressed.

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...

Matthew MacNish said...

This is almost all awesome. I can't imagine reading 55 books. I think I read like 20 last year, though, I can blame George Martin.

Jamie (Mithril Wisdom) said...

Congrats on completing the goals! Here's to 2012 being even better for you!

Happy bloggiversary too!
