Do You Have a Goal?



You're more than welcome to join this bloghop. All you need to do is read and follow the guidelines.

1) Jen, Brittney, and I will be co-hosts of this list.
2) If you do enter your link into the list, please be supportive of the other entrants.
3) Keep us up to date with how you're doing. Update Day is on the last Friday of every month. Even if you don't think you achieved much or anything, write a quick post to say so. We can't encourage if we don't know. 
4) When you enter your blog's address write your goal as the link title. For example, my link's title will be "earn $7500 per month." Not your name or your blog's. This is so we can keep track of who's doing what. AND it will serve as an easy indication of the fact that you're not the only crazy one.
5) Please please please spread the word! I know this is nuts, but I know a lot of people need encouragement, and making a decision and figuring out how to get there is half the battle...

Who else has a crazy goal? 
If you do, complete the following:

I WANT TO...

Nice idea Misha! I want to add a link but I have so many goals I wouldn't know how to choose. But I think I can pick just one. :)

Crystal Collier said...

Today my goal is to get through about 100 pages of editorial edits. Yay! Publication is on the horizon.

Every goal I have, other than keeping my house in order, kids fed, and laundry done revolves around that for the next 5 years. It's going to be a busy but fun time.

Is there a badge for this? I'm signed up, but I'm bound to forget all about it without a badge on my blog to remind me!

I think it's awesome that you put a number on it and you are working toward your goals. Good luck Misha--I know you can do it!

Madeleine Sara said...

I like the sound of those crazy goals :O)

Shah Wharton said...

Okay, I'm signed up. Misha, you need a button we can all pop on our sidebars and our posts. Let me know if you'd like me to make one. X

Yolanda Renee said...

Such a great idea, I'm in! Every goal should be voiced to make it real!

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks so much for offering! Can't wait to see what you can come up with...

Misha Gericke said...

So true. Thanks for joining!

Hi Misha - can you please remove my old link which was "get LMG ready for QueryCon by end of August"? I have added a replacement one. :)

Misha Gericke said...

Hey Trisha, will do. :-)

Sandy Campbell said...

I love the idea, and signing up! I love your blog...it not only looks nice, it is a fun place to visit for inspiration. I thought and thought about joining...insecure you know....and I decided yes! This is exactly what may help push me to writer harder! Thanks! www.sandysanderellasmusings.blogspot.com

Misha Gericke said...

Well done! I think setting a goal is one step closer to making it happen. I believe in you!

Trisha F said...

I posted for this just now - don't have much of epicness to report, but at least I have some small thing to say. :P

Thinking about my goal before I sign up.

Nissa Annakindt said...

I just found out about the blog hop today and I joined. My goal is to finish a series of poems I started yesterday, the first time in over 20 years of being a published poet that I ever did poems in a series rather than as stand-alone poems. It's a great idea for folks to set a goal and make it public as a way of making a full commitment. Thanks!

Alex Tanner said...

Nifty idea! I'm new to all this blog hopping, but am looking forward to making updates! :3

Beth said...

It's kind of awesome to see we're up to 20 bloggers now. I think we started with like 5!

Cathrina Constantine said...

Love this idea, I'm going to join and see where my goals take me.

Yolanda Renee said...

I did not make my goal of finishing book 3 by 2014 - so now it's to finish book 3 in 2014 and the first draft of the prequel. I'll update my site too, sorry - sometimes there is just too much going on!

Tyrean Martinson said...

I added in a month late - hope that's ok. I'll post for sure at the end of February.

Misha Gericke said...

No worries! There's no closing date for entries. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Perfect! I updated your link. :-)

JNC said...

This is a wonderful thing, and I'm glad it's still active, because I've just signed up!

J. Lenni Dorner said...

What a great idea! I'm so glad that I found this. :)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

This is where it would pay me to read better. I thought this was a once a week thing, which I would totally fail. But once a month? That is just perfect and what I need to keep myself on task.

Donna B. McNicol said...

Giving it a try....loving once a month!

Yolanda Renee said...

Back in the game and achieving those goals! See you on the 26th!

Yolanda Renee said...

I added another goal. Finish Night Prowler, please remove #17 Finish Murder & Obsession. That's done - now it's time for a new book!

Ravyne said...

Hi Misha! Lori here from The Rattling Bones to add a new goal that will actually not begin until July 1st, but since I spotted this now, I thought I would go ahead and add it. Hopefully this will give me the added push to see this through. I hope to complete my goal of 200 new poems by the year's end and be ready to send out my work for publication by January. I think this is a great idea that will hopefully keep me on track, having somewhere to check into each week. Thanks for setting this up!

My goal looks depressing, but in order to get rejected, I'd have to SUBMIT, right? And in order to submit, I need to have something worth submitting. So I figure if I don't get an agent by the end of this year, at least I'll have met my goal of being rejected. :)

abetterjulie said...

Accountability is a great idea. Thanks for this.

Olga Godim said...

I love the idea. Just joined in and posted my first report. Tomorrow, I'm going to hop around and see what the others are doing, how they keep up with their goals.

abetterjulie said...

I would like to rededicate myself to this. I love seeing how well everyone is doing. Could you please update my link to persephoneknits.com? I moved my blog this month to Wordpress. Thank you!
