Sunday Delight: Goals, Resolutions and Updates

Happy Sunday Everyone!
Today I have been checking up on my resolutions, reading challenges and goals.  And 2014 is not going to be a huge success as far goal accomplishments go.  I have not come close to getting my blogging resolutions completed at all.  Wayyyy back in December/January I posted a small list of things I wanted to do this year.  Here is the list.  (Original post here)
Blogging Goals
1.  Giveaway 50 books
I think I will hit this one.  I have to do a count.
2.  Post at least 350 blog post
Uhmmmmm.....
3.  Complete all my reading challenges
Maybe two or three of them will not be completed by December.
4.  Knock off at least 12 books from my TBR pile that is here in the house.
That would be one of the three.
5.  Buy only 12 books (Book Club Book of the Month books)
YES!!!!  Doing good on this one.
Blogging Resolutions
1.  Figure out and fix my Feedly button.
I have no idea why and how it is not working. 
Thank you Christine at Buckling Bookshelves!!
2.  Remove old and update buttons on the top of blog.
I need to do this soon.  BLOGGIESTA maybe!
3.  Comment on more blogs.
Still need to do this.
 4.  Clean up my Feedly reader and RSS reader.
This will be a forever project.  I did a little here and there this year.
5.  Work on more personal and non book post.
Uhhmmmm....oooopppssss!!!!!
6.  Start reviews much sooner than I am now.
Sometimes I do.  But not like I wanted to.

So there you have it.   Work to do for sure.  I have a personal list that's going to be rewritten soon.

Here and Now
