I'm pretty bad with New Year's resolutions. I never stick to them. In fact, I tend to forget about them right after I think of them. This year I'm trying something different though. I'm actually going to post them here on the blog and hopefully having them here will help me remember them.
4 Blogging Resolutions
Blog what I want/when I want!
I've started to do this one already. I've slowed things down on the blog and I'm posting more personal things. I'm trying to bring the blog back to what it originally was and I'm slowly starting to enjoy blogging again.
Read more books for pleasure.
For the past few years (ever since I started blogging) I've been obsessed with getting review books read and I've had to put aside books that I wanted to read for myself. I'm still going to read review books obviously but I'm going to try to switch things up every now and then so I also get to read books I buy.
Feature more authors on my blog.
I can't always review every book I want to but I would love to feature authors on my blog in other ways. Starting in 2013 I'm going to try to post a lot more interviews, guest posts, and things like that.
Be more interactive in the blogging community.
I definitely slacked off this year as far as participating in the blogging community. I just got so overwhelmed with things that I stopped commenting, stopped chatting on Twitter, stopped doing anything other than the bare minimum. That's going to change in 2013.
4 Life Resolutions
Work out at least 3 times a week.
I'm not unhealthy but I'm a little out of shape. I work at a desk job so I'm always sitting and I'd just like to be a little more active. I think it would make me feel a little better about myself.
Only drink one soda a day.
I'm addicted to soda. I love Dr.Pepper and I admit that I drink way too much of it. Starting in 2013 I want to drink a lot more water so I need to start cutting out the soda. Hopefully I can go from one a day to one a week or so.
Be less shy!
It may not seem like it online but in real life I'm a quiet person and I don't ever branch out of my comfort zone. I'd like to try and be a little more outgoing in 2013 but I think this one is going to be kind of hard.
Spend more time with people.
Being a big reader, I spend a lot of time on my own. I want to change that in 2013. I want to spend more time with friends even if it does cut out some of my reading time.
Do you have any resolutions for 2013?
