Goals for the new year

Every year I tend to try to have a resolution... Well, not this year. I don't want to make a resolution. I want to make a goal. A goal, I feel, is more attainable, more realistic than a resolution. A resolution feels too concrete, and over the course of a year, those sights could be lost. Things change. Plans change. Lives change.

For the 2011 year, my goals are:

Blog goals:

  1. Give my blog a bigger presence. I would like to have a bigger audience. Maybe even host some giveaways. Maybe host my own giveaway. In any case, I want to reach out to more people.
  2. Allow advertisements on my blog. I have not let anyone post an advertisement on my blog. I have however, placed my own affiliate links/ads up on my blog. I would like to expand my options. I have heard from other bloggers out there that this is a great way to generate revenue on the blog. So I would like to explore this option to see if it gets me anywhere. To expand on that one, we come to my next goal.
  3. To see where my blog can take me financially. I hear about other bloggers who are able to earn enough money to not have to have another job. I would like to see how true that is. As of right now, as I am typing this blog, I have 42 followers on Google Friend Connect. And a little more than that subscribed to my feed. I want to see that number go higher. I have a goal, somehow, someway, I plan on getting at least 500 more this year. We will check back in next year to see if it really happened.  
Now, onto my personal goals.

  1. To continue with school and keep passing all my tests! I am so excited that I am doing so well so far in school. So far I have passed every test. I plan on continuing that and to keep pushing forward.
  2. Since my schooling is online – I want to complete 2 semesters this year. If I complete more that would be great! 
I am really hoping that 2011 will bring not only me and my family a great year, but everyone. It's time that everyone gets back on track.

I also want to make note, that if you would like to lessen the burden on yourself, and feel like you need help – please feel free to contact me. I am in school for my A.O.S. in Accounting. While yes, I am only in Intro to Business, I also am good with numbers. If you would like for me to help you keep track of your expenses, please feel free to contact me, and let's work something out. I help you, you help me. I help you keep track of your money coming in, as well as what you have to pay, when you have to pay it, and in return I get some experience and hopefully a reference.

All in all, I look forward to a good new year, and new possibilities – in all aspects of my life.

Ok – off to watch Christmas movies with my little guy.
