The last day of 2011 and it’s time to do a goals progress update. How did I do? Did I reach my goals?
1. Get published.
Well, I feel like a broken record: rejected again. After a major rewrite of the article, we sent it to an International Reading Association publication and were rejected. (With some pretty harsh comments from one of the reviewers, I might add.) We’re at a little bit of a stand-still right now. Do we lower our standards and try for publication in a state journal instead of a national journal? Do we do another re-write? Do we give up?
2. Read more books. (Goal of 50 in 2011)
Fifty-nine! I’ve read 59 books this year. Even if you take out the six picture books, I still exceeded the goal! Here’s a graphic of my reading history for the past three years:
I still have a few reviews to write and post from books I’ve read in the past week. I hope to get those up the first week of January.
3. Blog more often. (Goal of three times per month)
Ugh, I slipped up on this one and only blogged twice in November! I made it for ten months either meeting or exceeding three posts per month, but blew it in November. However, I had 56 posts this year and if you AVERAGE my posts for the year, it’s 4.66 per month. So, I’d say that’s still a success!
That’s it for 2011! I’m still thinking of my 2012 goals and have an idea of my One Little Word too! More on that soon.
Happy New Year!
