**MY GOALS FOR 2017**

I've been moderately successful with the challenge the past 2 years but I think I've come up with some tweaks so that I'll be even more so in 2017. Mostly I'm making my goals more specific and therefore more quantifiable. :)

    • Visit TEN blogs a day
    • Link up my challenge posts on the last day of each month (or last day of month quarterly for those updating quarterly)
