My New Year’s resolutions usually consist of not-so-witty remarks like, “I’m going to party like it really is 1999″ or “I’m going to make this year classier than last year”. In essence, I rarely live up to my resolutions and I am never serious about them.
This year, I decided to set extremely realistic resolutions for myself. Goals that would not only be fun for me, but would also allow me to reflect on my year in a way that my half-assed occasional bouts of journaling ever could.
Over-arching resolution: Be more involved in online communities.
Sub-Resolution #1: Make a blog and update it regularly…for The. Whole. Year.
I’ve had 2 blogs in the past, neither of which lasted for more than 3 months. They were very angsty and made me depressed every time I thought about posting my emotions. This year I have found that blogging about the random crap in my life is really kind of neat! Despite the fact that I have very few readers, I truly love pondering about what the next post will be.
Sub-Resolution #2: Write reviews on Yelp! and become Yelp! Elite.
I’ve posted 60 reviews since I started on Yelp! at the end of December and I finally made the squad! The site is fluffy and I get great amusement from reading reviews of others and participating in the community talk section. Lame? Maybe. Boredom killer? Like none other.
I recently posted on Solera, Lord Fletcher’s, and Amazing Thailand…check em out.
What were your resolutions? Were you successful?
