Resolutions. Just typing the word invokes panic, as I see all the things I love (booze, chocolate, junk food) being taken away from me, and all the things I detest (exercise and clean living in general) being forced on me. There’s nothing worse.
Anyway, I didn’t get you here to talk about all the ‘improvements’ I’m going to make on myself this year (or at least the improvements I say I’m going to make) – I want to talk about all the wonderful things I’d like to do with my blog this year. I’m still a total newb at all this blogging business, but there are definitely some things I want to improve on, things I’d really like to have nailed by my blog’s first birthday.
- First things first, I want to write more often, which means I want to post more often. I’m getting pretty keen on this writerly business, and Stephen King just told me that I should be writing shitloads more than I am, but then he also mentioned something about profanity being lazy writing, so…can we really trust him? 😉
- Secondly, I want to write more discussion posts, and not just rely on Top Ten Tuesdays to fill a slot each week. Although I’m way too much of a list slut to stop those posts altogether – I just felt like they were becoming a bit of a crutch for me.
- Finally, I’d like to take better photos – I’m not sure how possible this is, because if you think I’m an amateur blogger, that’s nothing compared to my photography skills. Maybe I’ll be more realistic and say I’d like to put more effort into the photos/graphics on the blog.
Three sounds like a nice round number for blog resolutions – I don’t want to leave myself with nothing to aim for next year. How about you guys – I’d love to hear what your blogging (and otherwise) aims are for the new year.
