Working on 2016 Reading/Blogging Goals

So as I review what I've done in 2016 so far, one thing is painfully obvious: I haven't found my groove yet.

2015 was a year of changes. My whole life was upset, rearranged, and reassembled. At the end of the day, it all turned out for the best. I'm as blessed as I've ever been and so darn happy. The downside is that I still haven't found a new schedule to match this new reassembled life. My cooking has suffered, my exercise, and even my reading. It's been a jarring situation.

So in 2016 I'm hoping to change that. I need to find a happy new groove to settle into, and get back into doing what I love! Here's a few of the goals I have thought out so far:

Reading Goals:

* Read more short fiction.

This year I discovered that TOR constantly has free fiction online. I finally added them to my Feedly, and I've been trying to read more of it. Reading short fiction is helps break up really long books, and honestly there's a lot of great writing out there!

* Tackle the 2016 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge

I wanted to read out of the box this year, and the one thing that I discovered is that I really need some guidance. Having some categories to bounce off of will help me skinny things down to books that I can actually choose between.

* Clear my NetGalley TBR

This has followed me all year. I got so busy that I stopped reading as quickly as I did before. Alas, I didn't stop requesting. Now I'm living in the back draft of that. I need to catch up, big time. So no requesting anything new in 2016 until I fulfill the promises I've already made.

Blogging Goals:

* Post (relevant) content at least 3 times a week.

Not just reviews, although I'll still post those. I want to get back into working with memes and just general fun posts like this one :). Setting the bar low makes it easier to work time in. Which brings me to my next goal...

* Plan blogs ahead of time.

And hopefully also get a few typed up and sitting as back ups. I find myself with weird blocks of time where I'm not busy. I should use that better.
