Happy New Wotsit!

plansHere it is… 2012! A new year, a new start… and a chance to refresh one’s habits and make new plans. Yes, I’m talking about blogging, writing, reading, and general social media interaction.

2011 was an interesting year. I made a lot of changes at the cost of other things (blogging, time spent visiting blogs, time spent with friends on LibraryThing and various writing forums I’m a member of, reading GOOD books), so this year my plan is to reintegrate those things on a more casual but scheduled basis.

Otherwise, being online might take up all the writing time I have!!!

So, along with the rest of you who are posting resolutions online, here are a few things I’m planning for this year:

  • Blog posts minimum twice a week
  • 1/2 hr. minimum on LibraryThing daily
  • No more crappy books – if it sucks, stop reading it!!!
  • Complete edits on the two half-edited books I have, and submit them
  • Post once a week on The Ancient Standard again
  • Re-watch the entirety of Star Trek: TNG (what? some resolutions can be fun! Smile)

Mind you, my actual plans are more detailed than this (I have some weekly charts drawn up), but that’s the general idea.

That said… hope you all had a great holiday!!! Anyone else making resolutions (or plans, at the very least) for the year ahead?

I’ll be boring a couple of your resolutions if you don’t mind! Except for the blog one. I vow to still do one a week. I have to start small!

Makes sense to me! I’ll be completely honest though, I figure my second post per week will be a book review, which I already write to post on my LibraryThing group, so… I guess it’s kind-of cheating. But kind-of not. *mua-hahahaha*

Re-watch TNG with me!!!! ;)

I’m learning more about social media and blogging – reading through 31 Days of Finding Your Blogging Mojo (30daystomojo.com). I’m excited for it.

Also starting a new kick off diet and getting back on the health wagon! I’m blogging about it, which I am sure you will read! ;)

Enjoy your goals!

Oooh, weekly charts! That sounds impressive. I especially like this goal: “No more crappy books – if it sucks, stop reading it!!!” I have the same problem with books and movies. I can only think of a handful I ever stopped, and that was because they were beyond bad into downright offensive (and I’m tough to offend). I waste so much time, but I just can’t help myself. I think I might have to steal this resolution for myself. Best of luck meeting all your goals!

It’s so easy for things to fall to the background when something more interesting comes along. That was one of my big challenges last year as well, so it’s good to hear I’m not alone in changing that this year. Good luck to you!

I’m there!

I LOVE the no more crappy books part~! FREAKING YES… if I hate the story and I am totally not into it, then WHY OH WHY must I read the whole damn thing?

I’ve implemented the “If it sucks stop reading” principle. It hurts because I never know if the book will end up great or not, but life is too short. *sigh*
Hoping 2012 is fabulous for you Caryn!

Welcome back to the blogosphere, Faith! While I won’t say I’m making any resolutions, I do have some goals for the year. Stop by my blog and see what I’m up to! :D
