    I’m impressed with all your goals! I’m sure you’ll be able to manage all of that easily. My goals are simple, I’m just trying to get my book review blog off the ground. I’d love for you to check it out if you have the time at
    Other than that, I’ve made a goal to read 50 books this year. I read 62 last year, but I’ve started working on getting my Master’s degree in teaching, so I know I won’t have as much time to read this year as I usually do. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out with a book blog? I’d appreciate it. Thanks!

    Wow. That’s a lot of goals, how do you manage them all? I loved doing NaNoWriMo, did you know of CampNaNoWriMo? I did that last year. I don’t really have many goals, for some reason if I have too much to do I get overwhelmed so I’ve scrapped the meditate everyday, exercise, writing, read this and blog every week.. I’m focusing on finishing my first draft on my novel which was on hold last year. My other two goals are fun: read books I keep meaning to read and cook new recipes. Best of luck! Remember to have fun and chill too 🙂
