“New Year’s resolutions? Are you kidding me?” That’s my standard reply when someone asks me what my resolutions are for the year. I’ve found that when I make resolutions they tend to be impossible to keep and are usually ridiculous. “I will lose twenty pounds in one week. I will never eat chocolate again.” I set myself up for failure. Instead I’ve begun setting goals for the year. Goals are something I must strive for but are still obtainable. If I don’t reach the goal I will have made progress, meaning I’m still better off than when I started. This year’s focus is on blog improvement. By the end of last year, I was suffering from a sad case of bloggy burnout. I could barely force myself to sit at the computer even though I was writing about products I liked. I knew a change was in order and began research on what I called the “Building a Better Blog” project. I’ve learned a lot in the month I’ve started and am sharing my top three goals and the progress I’ve made. It’s advice I wish I had when I started blogging.
