2020 Blogging Goals + Looking Back at 2019’s Goals

Happy New Year, friends! I’m so happy to welcome not just another year, but an entire ass decade! I hope everyone’s year is off to a kind and gentle start, and may the rest of everyone’s 2020 bring them peace or joy.

One of my absolute favourite things to do when a new year rolls around is come up with my blogging goals, as well as looking back on the goals I set the previous year. I really enjoy looking at how far I’ve made it and where I still need to do some growing!

Read on to find out how I did in 2019 and what I want to achieve in 2020!

April 2019 Wrap-Up & May 2019 TBR

Summer’s halfway over. Can you belieeeeeeve? I’m kind of in a state of semi-stress because I feel like I haven’t really made the most of my summer. (I mean, I’ve only been to the beach twice – and trust and believe when I say for a Filipino, that’s not a lot!) But I also recognize that I’ve bought a massive crap ton of books (blame the National Bookstore Super Summer Sale) and also gone out of the country with Shealea (check out my recap of #KateLeaLumpur!), so that sort of might contribute to why I haven’t gotten to go to the beach yet…

Anyway, April was a pretty good month for me both reading and writing-wise, if not blog-wise. Although I did manage to get at least four posts out, which meant that I was blogging at least once a week. That’s acceptable, if not ideal. I hope to be able to step things up this month!

January 2019 Wrap-Up & February 2019 TBR

Whaddup homies? Welcome to your tita’s monthly wrap-up and TBR! (Yup, it’s all in one post now, because your tita is also lazy and couldn’t be bothered to make two.)

JANUARY FLEW BY LIKE WHOA, DIDN’T IT? 😳 I felt like I’d hardly taken in a breath and suddenly – whoosh! – the first month of 2019 had already ended. Pretty soon, it’ll be Christmas again. (Lmao.)

Anyway, let’s dive into what iyong Tita Kate (‘Your Tita Kate’ in Tagalog!) was up to this month!

2019 Blogging Goals + Looking Back at 2018’s Goals

Happy New Year, guys, gals, and enby pals! Here we are, on the first day of the year 2019! I hope everyone’s having a great day so far. And if not, chin up, friend! This is the dawn of a whole new 365 days, and you’ve got the whole year to make things better for yourself.

One of the things I positively adore about the New Year holidays is the chance to reflect on my goals and resolutions! I realize such things may be trite and ineffective for some, but for me, it honestly, truly works. Having a concrete list of what I want to achieve in a given amount of time. (It’s the Amy Santiago in me, I’m sure.)

For today’s post, obviously, I’m gonna be talking about my blogging goals for 2019. But I’m also gonna do a quick recap of my goals from 2018. It’ll be nice to see if I’ve accomplished everything I’ve set out to do when I first started this blog, don’t you think?

Let’s get on with the show!
