New Year's Resolutions

I haven't made New Year's Resolutions since I was in high school! I've decided to make New Year's Resolutions for 2011 that are connected to my blog. Here they are:

1. Read more books.

This means I need to stop wasting so much time watching random videos on YouTube and aimlessly blog hopping. I need to get more real reading done!

2. Be a better blog reader and commenter.

Again, this means I need to stop spending too much time aimlessly blog hopping. There are blogs I absolutely love and I find that I don't get to keep up with their updates as much as I would like to because of too much time spent searching for new blogs to follow.

3. Blog more often.

If I successfully read more books (Resolution 1), then I have more to blog about and can blog more often. This goes for all THREE of my book blogs!

To help me do this, I have finally made tables/records of my books to be read and reviewed. I have also started taking notes while reading books that are to be featured on my book blogs. (I use Microsoft OneNote 2010 for all of these tables, records, and notes.)

4. Graduate!

I'm thisclose to a master's degree. I just need to write and defend my thesis, which is a critical analysis of the three Newbery Medal books written by Asian Americans.

I hope everyone has a very Happy New Year! What are your New Year's Resolutions connected to your blog?
