Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Years everyone!!! 

2013 has been so good to me! I graduated from law school, got a job, got engaged, and of course, started this blog (: I can't wait for what 2014 will bring! I've decided to come up with some resolutions to keep me motivated, both in my personal life and in the blogging community. My personal ones are mainly just to run another 5k and then run my first 10k. But I have many more blogging resolutions below: 

1. Work on the design of my blog

I've recently started doing this, but I'm so new at it that it takes me a while. Plus I'm kind of indecisive, so it's hard for me to settle on something for a design. It's a work in progress, but I'd just like to make it more personal and original.

2. Participate in new reading challenges

These will be posted later this week, but I have so many that I want to participate in that I'm having a hard time narrowing it down! One of my own challenges is to read half of the books that are currently on my shelves. I made a list and printed it out so that I can cross the book off every time I read one. I hope this will keep me on track!

3. More original and thoughtful content on my blog

I love participating in memes, but sometimes I don't put much time into my answers, so I'd like to work on that. Also, now that I've been blogging for almost a year, I feel like I need to include more original posts and start thinking more creatively when deciding what to write.

4. Start a new meme!!

This one is pretty fun for me because I've wanted to do it since I started blogging. Maybe someone already does this as a meme, but I haven't really come across it before, so I'm going to start it. I'd love for people to join in and participate, but even if its just me, I don't care. It's still fun (: The meme I've decided to create is called Cover Me Up! Below is the button that you can grab and some more information. The first post will be on Thursday, January 2.

So, we're always told not to judge a book by its cover, but you know that you still do! It's often the first thing that grabs your attention when in the book store, library, or on a website. If a cover is intriguing or beautiful, you pick it up to find out what it's about. If the cover is boring or unappealing, you pass it up in search for something else. Maybe the title catches your attention too, but for me, it's often the cover. This purpose of this meme is to showcase a book cover that you found interesting. It could be that you absolutely loved it, or maybe you can't stand it. Whatever the cover means to you, post it on here and tell is a little about your thoughts. Do you love it? Hate it? Think it doesn't fit the story? 

To participate in this meme, please follow the host, Pages of Comfort and link back to this blog. Leave a comment below to let me know that you've participated so I can check out your post. Or simply leave a comment with your thoughts on the cover I've posted.

  1. Great 2014 resolutions! I am excited for your future meme ideas.
    I don't have a favorite cover, but my coblogger once did a whole Waiting on Wednesday so she could post an epic picture of Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard.

    Hope your 2014 is awesome :)
