4 Goals For 2021

I know we’re in March already, but I honestly haven’t had the best start to the year. I had a bit of a relapse just after Christmas in terms of my mental health and I’ve been struggling ever since. Usually my episodes last around six months or so, so I’m just in the process of waiting it out and trying to manage my symptoms.

Read 20 Books:

I set my goodreads goal to 10 last year and I actually managed to reach it so this year I’m aiming for a bit more to help expand what I read about. If you want to see what I’ve been reading you can check out the goodreads widget at the bottom of the webpage.

Reach 5000 pageviews:

Starting a new blog from scratch has proven to be a bit of a slow burner. When I ran Quirks and Queries I was getting about 2500 views in my first month but now I’m only averaging about 100. It’s okay though, it’s still early days and I’m still finding my footing in terms of what I write about and still trying to figure out what it is I want from this second blog.

Move house:

I’m moving house this year as I’ve been at my current flat for around 2 years. I’m obviously not going to say where I’m moving to but I’m hoping it’ll be the fresh start I need.

Finish first draft of my Sci-Fi/Romance/Drama novel:

I’m currently working on my debut novel that I hope to release at some point in my life, I’m not sure when yet it just depends what happens further down the road.

I’m not setting myself too many goals this year as I want to be quite free with how I lead my life and I don’t want to be too rigid with my routine anymore. As much as I love to keep things the same, I think it’s time I accept change a bit more.

So, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’ll continue to look back over these goals throughout the year and see where it is that I am.

Until next time,

Beth. x

  1. These are all great goals! I moved house at the start of this year and although it was a lot of work, I feel so much more happier in my new place. Hope your move goes well, and also good luck with the novel too! x


  2. Best of luck with your goals! As you keep writing you will find focus. Setting this as a yearly goal is also a great way to give yourself time to get everything done. πŸ™‚


  3. Wishing you all the best with these goals! I’m quite excited to hear more about the novel you’re writing. Will definitely be following updates for that πŸ™‚


  4. These are all great ambitions, best of luck with them, especially moving house! I’ve been trying to read more this year too, which is something I’ve neglected in recent years. I think the problem with aiming for higher page views on a blog is that, without a lot of work, there’s no easy method to do it – often, there’s nothing you’re even doing wrong. I’ve tried to accept mine’s not going to be as successful as I was hoping for, but that anyone who stops by is a positive!


  5. These are very exciting goals to work towards. I set my Goodreads challenge to 20 and have already hit it, I actually can’t believe that I have read more so far this year than I did all last year!

    Good luck reaching your goals x x


  6. Sorry about your relapse. Your goals are almost the same as mine apart from I don’t want to move. Reading is so relaxing and I find writing blog posts is too: good luck achieving your views
