So here we are then, it's time for my goals. And a word. I'm jumping on the word bandwagon this year and choosing a word to try and focus on for the year. And not to be outdone I've also decided on 1 resolution.
You may wish to go get yourself a cup of tea and a biccie, this could be a long one.....I'll wait.
Ok, so let's start with my resolution.
To comment more and lurk less.
It's a fairly simple resolution and in the last 4 days I've seen it have some really quite fun results! I've long grown bored of commenting on some of my favourite blogs when the blogger never replies. Even when I've said something witty/kind/useful.
Not so this year....I've started commenting more and had great responses from bloggers! Some bloggers who in my mind would be far too busy/important to bother with little old me have entered into quite amusing conversations with me. Yay for down to earth bloggers!! Sometimes you start to doubt yourself when you never get a reply!
Ok, so to my word. Wurd!
I had to resist adding extra sparkles and graphics to that I hope you know.....in the name of simplifying anyway lol!
From this word I've written a list of goals, some related, some not. Some just because I need a kick up the bum to get things done and I'm hoping this will help! Maybe if I remember then I could review them at the end of the month and tick off any I've done.
