Yesterday I started a list of my New Year’s Resolutions. I have a lot that I’d like to do, so I posted only 3 yesterday and have some more today!
I want to write all of the things.
Without actually looking it up, I’m pretty sure that I did a fair bit more writing in 2013 than I did in 2012 and I want to do that again! In the 4 days that I have been at my dad’s before writing this post I wrote more than 3,000 words (4,500 if you count this piece) without really trying. While I’ve had more free time than I normally do while I’ve been here, as I’ve already said, I haven’t been trying to write.
I’m going to try to write 250,000 words next year, which averages to just under 5,000 words every week. It’s something that I’m going to have to focus on, but I don’t think that it’s at all unattainable. Especially since I plan on writing as much as possible for The Daily Quirk and I’m hoping to get a post up every day at Tiers For Beards!
I want to read all of the things!
I used to read a lot. It was awesome. I haven’t been reading much since I moved to Chicago and that is notsome. I’m going to try to read 12 books in 2013, which is really not a lot, because I’d also like to get back into the habit of reading my friends’ blogs.
Along with reading blogs, I’d like to actually engage and comment on them. If I wasn’t trying to do this as well, I would definitely go for a higher number with those books!
I want to be better.
I started this one thinking that I’d like more subscribers on YouTube, views on my blog and followers for TFB on Tumblr, but with just a moment of thought on that, I realized that to get those things, I really just need to be better with my content and update it consistently. If I do those things, the people who like what I make will follow.
I mean, I’m not Gunnarolla, so the YouTube algorithms shouldn’t just hate me, right?
I know you probably don’t get the reference in that last one, so you should go click through and listen to some of his fun songs while I briefly explain that Andrew is YouTube’s biggest tragedy. Basically, he’s actually a pretty amazing content creator and many of the well-known YouTubers watch him, but for some reason, he’s practically unknown as far as quality creators who have been around for years go.
Now go fall in super cheesy love with him and I’ll have the end of my list for you tomorrow!
