“Social” Resolutions

I was inspired for this post by a friend and mentors blog PRos in Training. As a new professional I’ve been at my job for almost three months now, and I’ve been trying to find my footing and keep up with the routine that is work and attempting to have a social life outside of work. It’s rough, new city, new job, and trying to change my lifestyle. Things have been sacrificed in the process, the first thing to go, my blog.

At the end of last year I was teaching friends and younger underclassmen about the positives of blogging and engaging in social media and yet I’ve become lazy with it. superstock_1647r-51974

I’ve never been one to make New Years Resolutions, but I feel like this is something I was so passionate about not so long ago, I can’t let it die.

So my “Social” Resolutions for 2009 are:

Blog AT LEAST Once a week: I am very busy with work and other obligations in life, but that doesn’t mean on Sunday nights I can’t put aside an hour or two to blog as I’m watching TV.

Make a weekly Dent in my blog reader: I have over 1,000 unread blogs in my blog reader. It adds stress looking at all these unread blogs, if I make an effort to read atleast three aday I won’t have to press “Read All” and feel guilty for it.

Comment More: Enough said.

Tweet things other than personal things: I’ve gotten in the habit of using Twitter as a Facebook status. I got my job through twitter. This can be used as a much better tool than talking about the crazy person I’m sitting next to on the bus or to complain about my headache.

Hopefully I can hold myself accountable for these resolutions, but they will also get me back into the swing of things.

  1. I hope you do start blogging again! I love telling your story to students and it’d be nice to see you keep it up. If it helps, in about 3 weeks, I’ll be doing Linky Loves again for J452 students… just pretend it’s an assignment and write a response. 🙂
