Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014 :)

Happy New Year! :)

  Looking back to 2013, I really feel happy, thankful and satisfied. I'm so greatful for this year because I finally got the hang of blogging. Thank you so much to all the bloggers who have helped me through this journey. I love you all! Though it's only my first year of blogging, and I hope that there will be more and more years to come. :)

Here's how 2013 was for Divergent Gryffindor:

1. Almost achieved all of my 2013 blogging goals.
           • Make a huge dent in my TBR Pile.
           • Make blogger friends.
           • Host a giveaway.
           • Post at least twice a week.
                     - There was a hell month in school. -.-
           • Accomplish the Reading Challenges I participated in.
           • Read at least 30 books.
           • Only sign up for tours/ request for books that I would be able               to finish.
                     - This is something that I really can't stay away from, but                       I'm gonna be stubborn and still but it in my 2014 goals.
           • Get 150 followers.
                     - Yup, got 387 - 30 = 357 total.
           • Finish the series I started.
                     - There are just some series that you can't finish.
           • Get more involved in social networking sites.

2. Went to my first author signing and blogger's forum!
           Yes, I am proud to say this. Thank you so much Mary Ann of Teen Reader's Diary. :)

3. Met fellow bloggers in person.
           I met them first in the forum, but we didn't interact much. I met them again at the Christmas party, and I talked to some of them. Yay!
Awesome Christmas party! \m/

4. Completed my Goodreads 2013 challenge :D
           I set out to read 50 books, but then I just adjusted it to 70 because I exceeded it back in October. I finished the year with 72 book in total.

5. Talked to authors.
           As I said above a while ago, it's just my first year of blogging, so even though it's not that unusual, I still get pretty excited when authors reply to me. :D

  1. Wow! Girl you got a whole bunch done!
    Have a lovely new year (:

  2. I love the way that you broke it down. I usually make overarching goals when it comes to blogging and then forget about them, but I think I'm going to take your approach and make smaller attainable goals then hold myself responsible for attaining them.

    Thank you! I know right? It was really hard to set goals, and then do them.
