Am I the only one who is a little overwhelmed that November is already here? 2023 is just flying by and I don’t know where the year has gone.
One thing that I want to try to get back into is doing monthly TBR or goals posts and wrap-ups again. I think they’re a good way to keep a log of things and it’s nice to set some goals for the month and to then take some time to reflect on them at the end of the month. I don’t know if I’ll accomplish any of these goals, but for now I’ll be cautiously optimistic.
Here are my November goals!
I haven’t been reading as much the past few months. I don’t want to go as far as to say that I’ve been in a reading slump, but I haven’t had as much motivation to read lately. I’m hoping that by putting in the effort to read at least a few pages every night, I’ll get back into the swing of things. I’m not setting a specific TBR for the month, but there are a few books that I’d like to get to including Bridge of Souls by Victoria Schwab, A Lot Like Adios by Alexis Daria, and A Study in Drowning by Ava Reid. I’m also hoping to read Divine Rivals by Rebecca Ross for book club, and to read a few Poirot books, including After the Funeral and Hickory Dickory Dock.
Post on Instagram
I want to try to get back into the habit of posting on Instagram again. Instagram is where I started by blogging journey and I want to breathe some life into my account and discover some new bloggers and bookish people on that platform. If you’re interested in following me, I’m @books.are.42 on Instagram.
Track Blog Stats
This is a goal that I have to be careful with, but I want to start paying a bit more attention to my blog stats. I don’t want to check every day, but I do want to check in more often than I do now. I’ve recently been experimenting with SEO and I’ve been using the AIOSEO toolkit when drafting my blog posts. It takes a few months to notice a difference when using SEO, but I’m curious to see how things go.
Bake More Cookies
I want to start getting back into baking again. I have so many cookie recipes that I’ve either pinned or printed out and I want to start making them. When I was in university, I would bake all of the time and I want to get back into it.
How about you? Do you have any goals that you want to accomplish in November?
