Reviewing my New Year’s Resolutions for 2023

As we approach the end of 2023, it’s time to review my New Year’s Resolutions for 2023. To look back at my hopes for 2023 and see if I succeeded.

Reviewing my New Year’s Resolutions for 2023

Read 100 Books

I did not succeed in reading 100 books this year. It’s been an incredibly busy year and I struggled with a reading slump in the Autumn which meant I never progressed past 80 books. But that’s still rather a lot, so I’m happy.

 Get a new book deal

Well, I can’t say too much about this yet. We’ll have to wait and see…

Have a new experience at least once a month

I’ve not made a good enough account of the last year to determine if I succeded in experiencing something new at least once a month. I’ve bought a cat, and a car, travelled to various UK cities I’ve never visited and I ate at lots of different restaurants. So I’d like to think I did do this.

Have £5000 in savings

Let me refer you back to my previous update, in that I bought a cat, a car, and travelled a bit more this year. I’ve actually ended the year with less savings I had than when I entered it… how’s that for going backward!

Grow ElleBellesNotebook

And finally, growing my blog. I actually took a step back not long after the New Year are work got so crazy. This is the first year since I started EllesBellesNotebook and the results have gone down, but surprisingly not by much. After going from posting three times a week consistently to one to two times per week intermittently it could have gone down a lot more.

So all in all, I didn’t achieve many of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2023. However, I’m not upset or annoyed with myself. They’re just goals at the end of the day, and I attempted them and I think the results are still pretty good all things considered.
