It’s now becoming traditional for me to set goals at the beginning of the year, then reflect how I’ve done by the end. Following my failure to achieve these the last few years, I’ve significantly dropped my numbers, in the chance of actually meeting a couple!
- Increase subscribers to this blog to 980, excluding twitter followers
I managed to get to 950, so am considering this a win!
- Increase annual page hits to this blog (to 6500)
Not quite there, though my numbers have increased on the last few years to over 6100 views.
- Increase twitter followers to @brumnordie (to 950)
Not there, hovering around the 760 mark
- increase twitter followers to @bxbrum (to 250)
Nearly there, hovering at the 230+ mark
- Read and review 60 books. 50% to be paperbooks or audiobooks. I’m going to take part in 2 challenges this year, keeping m6 numbers low, but I see the two tying in together quite nicely.
Not even close. LOL. See other posts
- Get my Netgalley ratio into the 70% range (from 65%).
Upped to 66%
- To aid in reading the books that I already have there will be a moratorium on requesting books from Netgalley or LibraryThing, and reviewing books I already have
I Haven’t requested stuff of netgalley or librarything for a while (except the stuff I’m auto approved for).
- Make better use of twitter, including the analytics, scheduling content.
Something I must do better at. I’ve been capturing analytics data for a year now, I just need to take time to digest what the numbers are telling me.
- Take part in twitter chats such as #ContentHour, #BrumHour
My participation dropped off in the second half of the year, but I feel I did get a level of support when i did take part
- Ensure about and contact details are maintained and up to date
The new Unconvention twitter feed is as up to date as I can make it. .I’m still not accepting submissions, so I’ve not reintroduced my email address on my blog
- Make use of scheduling and planning software
Because of taking part in the 2019 and 2020 Bookcrossing Uncon, I’ve paid to upgrade my scheduling software, and have been making use of the service more. I’ve also set up google alerts to help me find different content to share, which I hope people are finding interesting. I’ve also started to make more use of my Pinterest boards
- Do more posts about sewing, my cross stitch and quilting in particular. I’m not putting numbers on this.
I’ve done few personal posts about sewing, but I have tried to be a bit more vocal in sewing groups and sharing other people’s content.
- Comment more on other people’s blogs – I’m not going to put a number on this as it’ll be a nightmare to track. Just “do more”.
I’ve commented on a couple of posts, “Pinned” a few more, but that’s about it
- Release more books via Bookcrossing, either in OBCZs or via RABCKs.
Certainly doing this! My flat currently looks like a second hand book store with all the books that need to be taken to various shelves around the place. Telford Train Station and Moor Street Station seem to be the most voracious.
