What to expect in 2011

I broke this into two posts, because it was getting way long AND there were no pictures, and if anyone else is like me, that doesn't always read very easily.  So I gave you a short break between posts but now I'm back with my 2011 goals and what you can expect on the blog.

Physically: Lose some weight and get in better shape.  Pretty simple, but I really need to do it.  I want to have more energy and spend more time outside with the dogs.

Academically/Professionally: Keep current with librarianship now that I'm done with grad school.  Read blogs, publications, and books to stay fresh on relevant topics.  Read at least three articles, books, blogs, etc a month about the field of librarianship.

Personally: Read more books/pages than I did this year, finally post some of my crafts on my etsy shop, and start posting on Golden Girl Does It Herself again.  Make Zombie Awareness Month a success in May.  Read at least three different genres a month: nonfiction, fiction, poetry, drama, essay, textbook.

Spiritually: Two words: quiet time.  Read my Bible and pray daily along with Bible study.  Find a new church and develop relationships with people who share my beliefs.

Socially: Keep seeing the Nesties Besties all the time!  Meet more of my online friends.  Continue making an effort to go to various book festivals and meet more people who blog, write, and publish.

I think one of the reasons I did so poorly on my goals for last year is because I wrote them down and then didn't think of them again until, well, this week.  I'm coming up with a DIY project that I can put somewhere in my house to help me remember, and I'm planning to start using my monthly summary to post how I'm coming along with my goals as well as my reading stats.  What do you think?  Any suggestions for more detail on my goals or how I should develop a way to remind myself?


  1. good luck with your goals! I'm still thinking about mine, but when I get them all together I think I'm going to post them on the sidebar of my blog. I figure I'll at least have to stare at them whenever I update.

  2. Adding them to the sidebar is such a great idea! I may just have to borrow it if you don't mind!
