Usually I don't bother. They're something that you chat about, make a joke about - "oh yes, that'll be one of my resolutions" but in reality are vacuous statements that you have about as much chance of still doing in February as seeing that flying pig.
This year, however, I have some things that I want to do next year. Some things that are feasible - that I have a good chance of achieving so I am going to record them here, in that hope that in 12 months time I can do another post - a post entitled "Which of my New Year's Resolutions did I achieve" and be able to blog that I did them all!
1. Make this blog better! Customise it, make it recognisable and easy to use. Make it enjoyable for people to read so they will come back!
2. Write the short stories I have the ideas for. Get them written and get at least one submitted to be published somewhere
3. Go on another couple of courses with a view to developing skills to help with the business.
4. Take a photograph a day for the next year. I started this in 2009 and got to September then didn't manage any more. This year I'm determined to find my mojo and make a better fist of things.
Wish me luck and I'll keep you updated!
