My 2010 Resolutions

I have been thinking over the last little while of some resolutions for 2010. I made some back in 2009 and was successful in completing some, but not others.  There’s a few things I have in mind for 2010 in both my personal life and on my blog.

Personal New Year’s Resolutions:

  • Catch up on some of my reading. I have so many new books that I can’t wait to read and I need to make time each day to do it. I also have entered the Chick Lit Challenge so I have some reading to do there.
  • Go back on the Yeast Free Diet. I think that did help my pain levels and I want to be more strict with it.
  • Save up money for both John and I to go see my best friend, Angel in Rome, Italy. She moved there last year with her husband and two kids and I really want to see her. I have seen pictures and it looks beautiful.
  • Finish organizing our house. We have most of it done, but there are a few rooms that have been left untouched.
  • Look into going back to school for Nursing. I wanted to wait till my pain levels were under control, but I need to find out what my options are and see if I can start part-time.
My life is very different now from one year ago. It’s amazing the difference a year can make. 2009 was a year of change for me. I separated from my husband after 10 years of marriage, moved across Canada, found a wonderful doctor in New York City who has finally been able to help me after 4 years of suffering, and have met a wonderful man who I love so much. It has been a hard year, but one of my best years where I have grown stronger and learned much.
Blog Goals for 2010
  • Strive to post a review/giveaway everyday (hopefully more!) and work on showcasing more new and exciting products for you.
  • Host more Events this year. I have Simply Stacie’s Sweet Valentine’s Affair planned for February 1 to 14th. I am so excited about it.
  • Add a Shopping Directory.
  • Figure out how to add the “Tweet This” and “Share on Facebook” for each post.
  • Get to know more bloggers. I have made some great friendships this year and I hope to connect with more of my readers and other bloggers.
My blog has grown tremendously over the past year and I want to thank my readers and my sponsors for helping me get there. I love what I do and am excited to get up everyday and blog! I started with no followers last December and now have over 1200. I hope to continue to grow and learn and keep doing what I love (and hope you all will continue reading!). Thanks so much for a great year!
So there’s my New Year’s Resolutions so far. I am sure I will think of more that I forgot to write down! What are your resolutions for 2010?
