~ My 2014 Blogging Resolutions ~
I started this blog in February 2013 so it's been almost a year and I have loved every minute of it. I feel like it has been a successful year and I am looking forward to many, many more.
I've learned a lot about myself, my reading habits, my review style and so much more. With everything I've learned, I've decided to come up with some blogging resolutions for 2014. Let's hope I stick to them better than I normally do with my personal ones. :-)
1. Complete my personal Young Adult Series Challenge.
For my last Top Ten Tuesday of 2013, I decided to list out the 10 YA series that I'd like to read in 2014 and I decided to extend that into a personal challenge for myself. I'm pumped to get started.

2. Cut back on Blog Tours and Review Books
I absolutely love participating in tours and helping authors promote their books. However, I feel like I overwhelmed myself with "required" reading in 2013 and I have a mountain of unread books that I have purchased for myself that I really want to read as well. While I have every intention of still participating and helping authors out, I have to be a little more selective and limit myself to no more than 3 tours per month.
3. Increase my NetGalley Ratio
Compared to some people, my unread NetGalley list is probably light but I still have around 12-15 books from NG that I still need to read and review and I'd like to catch up on those and get my NG ratio up to 80% and keep it up there.
4. Diversify throughout Genres
I discovered the New Adult genre in 2013 and fell in love. I also ended up spending 85%-90% of my reading time in this genre. While I love new adult books, I also used to love reading young adult, paranormal romance, dystopian, historical fiction and mystery too. I really want to spread my wings a bit more in 2014 and read read beyond the new adult genre.
5. Participate in more Challenges
I signed up for a few challenges this year but didn't really actively participate as much as I would have likes. This year, I'd like to be more active in my challenges and maybe do a monthly "challenge update" post to keep on top of it.
Well, that's all I've got for now. I'm really excited about 2014 and another year of awesome books, blogging, meeting new people and hitting up some blogging conventions. I'm saving for BEA and I can't wait to meet everyone. It's gonna be epic. Also, my first every blogoversary is coming up in February and I'm working on planning something super fun and special. (February also happens to be my Birthday months too!)
What about you? Do you have any blogging resolutions you're working on this year?
