Why do we blog anyway?

Most of the bloggers this year made #1 resolution as “BLOG MORE!” even more than reading, diet, weightloss, sports, drinking water, healthy living, healthy food etc.

Would you please take the poll? You can see the results too 🙂

MOST common New year resolutions of bloggers: Blog more !

I’ve been reading New Year’s resolutions for the last 2 days and here are my observations:

Most common New Year Resolutions and interesting commonalities among resolvers:

1. Blogging more/every day/consistently etc.

Almost every blogger have that in their lists.

2 - Copy

2. Weightloss

5 - Copy

Interesting that most of the resolvers did not decide how much to lose. Therefore it is a wish, not a goal.

3. Drinking more water

7 - Copy
JUST WATER NO FUN-NO SUCCESS FEELING

This is a habit to be developed. Try doing it for 1 month and there: You have a new habit. It is neither challenging nor fun. Therefore I don’t think this will work for anyone as a resolution because developing this as a habit will not make a person feel successful.

6 - Copy
FUN + WATER

A goal should be challenging and fun that you stick to it. Read more about goals vs wishes

3 - Copy
FUN + WATER + SUCCESS because girls are looking 🙂

4. Eating healthy

Most of the resolvers admit that they ate lots of junk and got drunk on New Year’s Eve.

5. Finishing school/graduation etc.

1 - Copy

6. Fitness/jogging/sports

4 - Copy
I will run all year!

The bloggers in this group are very specific about their goals in miles/day or miliseconds.

7. Finishing “Once started” projects, mostly being postponed to 2015 from 2014 or earlier.

Sometimes giving up is a good decision. I’ve even made that a goal/project 🙂

I recommend giving up rather than feeling failed all the time. Read more about giving up as a goal itself.

8. Reading

8 - Copy

I realized that most of the bloggers who wrote this as a resolution are also happen to be book buying addicts like me, which lead them another resolution “Buy less books, first read what you already bought” I loved this. Since I have the same addiction, this is how I stopped it: Blogging more. So this leads to the most common resolution 🙂

Please don’t get me wrong. I just wanted to add some humor 🙂

I really love reading blogs, please keep writing…
