Along with my fifteen writing related resolutions this year, I have a variety of other resolutions which I plan to keep up with. They include resolutions pertaining to my blog, to my health, to my web page and to my computer.
The main resolution to my blog is to write it one to two days before I post it. The purpose for this is so that I would not be rushed in writing the post. The other two resolutions are to write and post to my blog twice a week and to accept calls for being a guest on other blogs.
As to the resolutions for my health, they all are pretty much the same as before. The main health related resolution is to work on losing a pound a week. This way I should lose about 8 to 10 pounds by the time my first conference comes up in March. Another resolution is to rebuild my martial arts skills and using these skills as part of my exercise routine.
On my web page, I will need to re-evaluate both my personal and professional web sites. Both sites need to be rebuilt. The program I chose to use is something called Joomla. After perusing several pages built by the program, I decided I would give it a try.
This brings up my computer resolutions. In order for me to use Joomla, I need to learn how to use the program. To do this, I decided that I need to clean up my hard drive by removing some of the unneeded software. Over the last couple of years, I have installed programs and removed them. This process trashed up my registry, and I feel they are causing problems. I’ve tried to install Service Pack 3 for Windows XP and can’t.
Due to the amount of information on my hard drive, I chose to purchase another hard drive for the fresh install of my operating system. I then plan to load key programs that I know I will use.
Once I get my computer set up the way I want it, then I will start the next set of resolutions which include learning how to build a database in OpenOffice and to build a web page using Joomla.
So, for the next year, I plan on enjoying myself a bit more and looking toward life with a little more wonder. Then make sure I note the thinks I find while I let my mind wander. I am looking forward to my adventures this coming up year. How about you?
