This year, I’m going to focus more on growing my online presence so tracking my blog and social media stats is going to be key. From posts to followers to traffic, keeping an eye on my numbers will help me to identify areas for growth and celebrate my successes along the way.

I’ve identified 5 big areas that I want to focus my efforts on this year – reading, writing, watching, money, life. There were so many things I wanted to do this year that my goals list was getting out of hand so I had to choose the goals that made the most sense for what I wanted to achieve relative to my blog!

New Year Goal #1 – Reading

Are you ready to join me and get stuck into some good reads? Apart from books, I’m hoping to diversify my reading with poetry, essays, shorts stories, and even some fan fiction!

Let’s set a goal for how many books to read this year and start building our reading lists. Don’t forget to reflect on what you’ve read and share your insights with others—it’s all part of the journey!

Reading Goal: 20 books

New Year Goal #2 – Writing

Both seasoned writers and beginners can benefit from setting writing goals which can help us stay focused and motivated. Commit to writing regularly, experiment with different styles, and don’t be afraid to share your work with the world.

Writing Goal: 1 short story a week; 1 poem a month; 1 essay a month

New Year Goal #3 – Watching

Who doesn’t love a good movie night? Make a list of must-watch movies and series for the year ahead, and don’t forget to share your recommendations with friends and family. It’s all about finding that perfect balance between entertainment and inspiration.

Watching Goal: Watch the Disney animated features in chronological order starting with Snow White (1937).

New Year Goal #4 – Money

This year, I’m looking to increase your income and build a financial safety net so setting financial goals is essential. I’ll be exploring different income streams and tracking my progress regularly to stay on top of my finances.

Money Goal: Set up at least 3 different income streams.

New Year Goal #5 – Life

Finally, I will be prioritizing my health, wellness, and creativity. I will make time for self-care, pursue activities that bring me joy, and not be afraid to try new things and step out of my comfort zone.

Health Goal: Work out at least 3 times a week. Eat what’s good for my body.
Wellness Goal: Weekly at-home spa days. I want my skin to be smooth and glowing.
Creativity Goal: I bought a crochet kit to teach myself how to crochet. It’s been hard! I also want to get back into candle-making.

So there you have it—a roadmap for making 2024 your best year yet! Whether you’re focusing on reading more, writing regularly, or growing your online presence, I hope these tips help you achieve your goals and make your dreams a reality. Here’s to an amazing year ahead!

I’ll be checking back in at the start of every month to see how much I’ve achieved/grown. I don’t expect things to happen all at once but I’m playing the long game.
