New year; new look

Happy new year (and new decade) bookish peeps!!! I hope you’ve all had an amazing start to 2020.

I’ve been M.I.A in the blogging world in recent weeks; busy celebrating an early Christmas with family before heading off on a highly anticipated roadtrippin’ adventure with hubby to sunny Adelaide for some much needed rest, relaxation and romance.

While we were away I took a ridiculous number of photos; saw some stunning old buildings; visited the zoo; spent lots of time reading, taking afternoon naps and catching up on a year’s worth of sleep (or so it seemed).

The break was exactly what I needed after the stresses of last year.

Deeply focused on relaxation and personal restoration, I’ve been having a little rethink about what I can reasonably be expected to accomplish blogging and reading wise around work, study and two (not quite) grown children. And what I would really like to accomplish this year.

Here’s what I’ve come up with:

Blogging Goals:

  • fewer posts but of higher quality
  • simplifying my process and learning how to schedule posts
  • putting less pressure on myself to keep up with other bloggers
  • taking time to foster bookish friendships
  • sharing some of my own photography on the blog
  • being more creative

Reading Goals:

  • reading 75 books this year
  • reading for enjoyment
  • not getting carried away by all the shiny books on Bookstgram and following my own interests when choosing books
  • reading more thrillers /domestic dramas
  • reading less self-help
  • joining and participating in a book club

A new look:

With the new year, I also decided to try a new look; creating a simpler, ‘more me’ version of what was already established. It’s a little less girly and a bit chunkier (because I’m a little bit chunkier after Christmas…lol) but much easier to use and navigate. I’m really loving it and hope that you will too.

Until next time…

Happy reading!!
