Can you believe we’re already over one-fourth of the way through 2015? Time has been passing really oddly for me this year. I don’t know where the past three months have gone– but if someone tries to remind me of something that happened in February, I keep thinking that no way, can’t be… that must have happened back in December!
It both seems like it was about a week ago and like it was about a year ago when I wrote my 10 Blogging Resolutions for the New Year. Right around this time of the year is usually when resolutions either stick or completely fall apart. In the hope that I can keep up my good work, I’m sharing what I’ve done successfully and where I can improve in the next few months.
I’ve been doing really well with:
#3 Eat more vegetables. I frequently have salads for lunch and I’ve also been incorporating fruit into more of my breakfasts.
#4 Get the spam problem under control. I thought about modifying the comment form in my theme, but instead I switched to Disqus. I used Disqus when I first started blogging. It has stabilized in the past few years, so now I’m back!
#5 Fix up the theme. The navigation bar now sticks to the top of the browser when you scroll down the page. I also updated my about page. It’s a work in progress, but so far, so good.
#9 Change the story. I made my first open source software contribution this year! It was a small one, but it was important because it made me think that maybe I’m not too junior for some of the projects out there.
#10 Stay hungry. Stay foolish. I signed up for a WordPress class! It’s Skillcrush‘s WordPress Developer Blueprint, which is supposed to teach you about WP and about getting started with freelancing.
And then there are some things I am not doing so well with.
#1 Write. I wanted to post on Mondays and Thursdays this year, but so far that has not happened. If you have any tips for getting into a consistent writing habit, please share them with me!
#2 Take more photos. I only took a camera with me once this year. There was once a time when I took it to every birthday party, dinner, afternoon shopping, etc. I just want to start taking photos again.
#6 Make time to read the blogs I love. Bad. Just bad. I moved from Bloglovin to Feedly, so I hope that will make a difference.
Did you set any goals for 2015? What have you accomplished? What are you hoping for?
