If you are taking part here is the direct link for DAY 1 Your Blogger Resolutions

Happy New Year everyone. Its Day 1 of the Book Blogger New Year’s Challenge. Are you excited to take part in this? I know I am really happy.
If your like me every year you make a ton of New Year’s resolutions. Half of them you succeed at and the other half never happens or you don’t follow through with them. So this year I decided I am going to make more realistic resolutions and ones I know I can actually follow through with. So here is my New Year’s Resolutions for 2014.
The first set I am going to talk about relates to blogging:
  1. Blog daily. This year I want to make it a point to blog daily (if possible).
  2. Read and Review. I really need to get into that habit of reading a book and reviewing it right away. That is something that slipped for me last year. I am making it a point this year to read one book and review it before starting a new one.
  3. Commenting/Networking/Interact. I need to get into the habit of commenting on my posts. This has always been a pet peeve of mine and now I need to fix that. I need to pimp my blog more and put myself out there. I need to get more involved with the blogging world.
  4. Organize. I need to sit down and plan out my week with what I want to post and try and stick to that schedule. This will allow me to schedule posts in advance.
  5. Vlogging. I want to get more into that this year. This will probably consist of book hauls, shelf tours etc.
My personal resolutions are:
  1. Managing my time. With being a stay at home mom, volunteering at my son’s school library and being a hockey team manager I need to work on this. This will require me to plan out my week in advance so I am not feeling rushed all the time and feeling as though nothing is getting done.
  2. No Buy. I have put myself on a no make up buy ban and I am forcing myself to stick with that because this past week I have been cleaning up and wow I have alot of stuff that I really don’t need. That will be an upcoming blog post. I will also be limiting myself in book buying as well. I have been really good about that since the fall because I am no longer an iReward member at Chapters instead I am a plum reward member. Perhaps that will be a future blog post talking about the differences and how it affect my spending there.
  3. Organizing. I mentioned above how I have been cleaning up and I am amazed at how much stuff I actually have and own. I decided in 2014 I really need to trim things down and keep only what I need and use. Things that have been sitting unused for the past year or more really needs to find a new home. Over the course of this year I will share those posts with you.
  4. Journaling. I use to do this when I was in  high school and when I moved to Montreal but then getting married and starting a family it fell to the side. I think this will be theraputic for me.
  5. Getting Healthy. I realized recently that I am so out of shape its not even funny. I was doing really good up until we got back from Hungary. Since then the weight I lost is now back plus some, I have been feeling really blah and unmotivated lately. I have also noticed that I get sick quicker and it lingers so I think getting healthy with eating and exercise will do me good.
So those are my New Year’s resoluitons for my blog and personally. What are yours? Do we share anything in common?
