New Years Resolutions... [Jan. 7th, 2005|08:14 pm]
The Love Bug
Yeah, so this is probably a waste of time, but I really hope that it isn't.

For the record, here are my New Years Resolutions for 2005, in no particular order.

  • I will re-establish and maintain contact with certain members of my family whom I have neglected over the last few years.

  • I will get back into my weight loss, and stop farting about.

  • I will get back to the gym and get fit(ter).

  • I will update my journal more.

  • I will re-establish and maintain contact with certain friends whom I have neglected over the last few years.

  • I will improve my organisational and time-management skills. I've entered this one as a personal objective in my Annual Appraisal.

  • I will get off my arse and sort out my websites and other projects that I've started and subsequently abandoned. Along with this, I will not start any new projects until I've sorted out the ones I already have.

  • I will commence a kind of self-therapy by brain-dumping my gripes and annoyances, in the hope of improving my temper over things that shouldn't really bother me. For this, I have already created an Opinion Blog*... which is also available at thelovebugopine.

  • I will improve our home and quality of life. This resolution has a big list of its own... I might post about that at a later date.
I think that's enough to be going on with.

* Yeah, I know... I can't stand the word "Blog" either... but as it uses Blogger, I'm kinda stuck with it.

I think you're the first person that I've actually seenpost resolutions.

What made you decide to put that opinion journal away from this livejournal?

A couple of reasons really...

I wanted to make the opinion journal part of my website anyway. I was playing around with Moveable Type and TypePad, trying to get an account, but you have to pay for them. So I gave Blogger a try, signed up, published the empty blog, and hey presto.

Also, I wanted to keep stuff like this separate from my regular journal. No real reason, as such.

I've downloaded moveable type for free. Just the personal use and 1 user I think it was.

*wonders if you'll actually post to it* :)
