Have you checked out Estella’s Revenge and Girlxoxo post on how they did challenge and goal wise for 2018?
MON. | Dec. 24 – #AMonthofFaves Challenges and Goals – Reading challenges, personal goals, resolutions – how did you do? What are your goals for this month, this season or next year. Check in here.
I had to look back at my 2018 Goals post to see how I did!
Making time for my nieces- check! While I did not see them as much as I wanted to, I did see them a great amount and I made sure to be focused on them (making memories and having fun) when they were in town.
Love- I’m not sure if there is a way to say if I met this goal or not, but I’m going to say that this is a goal I’m still working on. Still single.
Getting healthy- I incorporated more fruits in my diet and I’m down a jean size 🙂
Doing what make my heart sing for a living- I’m getting closer 🙂
Reading 75 books. I’m at 73, so close; but not met!
Listening to more audio books- I did not listen to any audio books this year 😦
Supporting libraries- The 2 times I tried this year- they did not have/could not get the books I wanted. 😦
Reading books from my own shelves- success! I read around 15 books from my own shelf!
Blogging/Social media Goals:
Instagram: I had a 96% increase in followers in 2018. My goal for 2018 was to have 600 followers by end of 2018- I met that goal at end of May. I currently have 864 followers.
Getting back to Twitter- I was still hit and miss, but when I posted, I had fun!
Finding and nurturing my tribe. I found some new blog buddies that really revitalized my love for blogging and reminded me that connecting with new friends is fun. My #TeamBrenda gals are still crazy supportive and I love our chats.
Let’s take a peek at my Goodreads stats:
73 Books Read in 2018
Five 5star books
49 4star books
18 3star books

Thanks for reminding me that I need to make more time for my nephew and niece. It’s a good reminder.
You are welcome!!!
This is awesome!!! You accomplished a LOT in 2018! I bet 2019 will be even better 💕💕
Thank you! I’m hoping so!!!
I’d love to know which five were the five-star reads…
Umm.. i’ll Have to look back at Goodreads to tell you for sure which ones they were!!
Only curious because there were so few!
4&5 stars are almost the same to me. I generally have more 4 stars than 5!
EXCELLENT year for you, T.
You do an amazing job on Instagram…CONGRATS on the increase in followers.
Thanks for sharing, and have a great Christmas.
Thank you so much for all your encouragement & support!!
Sounds like a wonderful year! I remember seeing you talk about your nieces here. They’re lucky to have such a loving aunt. I’ve never taken bookmail photos, but I think I’m going to try that next year.
I do love my nieces 🙂 Can’t wait to see your bookmail photos!!!
Congrats on the increase in followers and on more fruit. YEAH.
Thank you!!!! I’m just trying to do better/ be better as much as I can!
Congrats on more fruit, going down a jean size, and on reading off your shelves. I have a TBR pile of my own books on my dresser and I rarely read anything off of it because, well, my library books have deadlines and these ones don’t. But that shouldn’t make a difference and I really need to reduce that pile!
Thank you! I read a lot of ARC copies & don’t always make time for my own books. Working on that!
Wow, it sounds like you had some great success on Instagram and accomplished a lot this year! Happy 2019 🙂
Thank you SO much! Happy 2019 to you!
