New Year Resolution for 2010


It is very important to set goals for oneself, and the best time to do it is during the start of the year!

But before I write down my goals for the new year, I need to review whether I had accomplished the things I had set out to do in 2009:

  • A new site layout [achieved!]
  • A new site mascot [site mascot created by Maha but need to work on new header banner - achieved]
  • More original content [introduced Nendo's Travelogue, but still need more original content - partly achieved]
  • Work harder and earn more $_$ [working more but also spending more >_< - achieved]
  • Stop procrastinating and lose some weight [I gained weight instead of losing them - fail!]
  • Gain more visitors for this site, preferably 200k/month by Dec 2009 [achieved 195k visitors in Oct -achieved!]

I’m quite satisfied that I had managed to accomplished many of the goals for 2009, especially those related to my website. The only regret is that I had procrastinated on losing weight and the routine of working in the office had resulted in me gaining weight >_<

I did some thinking of the 1st of January, and decided on 10 goals for myself and this website in 2010:

  • Hire a profession to create a truly unique site layout, target to complete by Mar 2010
  • Complete new header banner featuring site mascot Akari by end of Jan 2010
  • Create at least 2 new original content within 2010
  • Achieve 300k of unique visitors by Dec 2010 with a google page rank of 5
  • Save enough money to visit Japan in Wonder Festival Summer
  • Start using Japanese more (for a start: tweet at least once in Japanese everyday)
  • Try to get a new job that I can be truly passionate (anime, publishing or social media industry)
  • Adopt my first dolllfie daughter ^^
  • Continue to improve my photography skills
  • Learn at least 10 new magic tricks (a hobby I had put off for quite long)

So what’s your new year resolution? I leave you to think about it with an interesting quote I read on new year resolutions: A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.

    That’s a lot of goals you have. Personally I’ve just placed one goal for myself; to watch less anime since the habit has really become unhealthy. I don’t know how it’ll go, but I’ll see… ^_^’

    I don’t like making a New Year’s resolution. I see them as promises to myself and I don’t want to break a promise XD

    Wow. I think being able to accomplish more than half of your list is pretty good! I end up not making new year’s resolutions because I end up not doing them ^^;

    Hope you’ll be able to accomplish what you’ve set for this year!

    One of my New Year’s resolution is the opposite of yours. It is to gain weight!! I’ve been underweight for as long as I know..and I’ve been struggling to gain :( I blame my metabolism rate for this..

    Though there are others that I think of..my major goal is still to gain weight >_<

    Maybe we can always give you suggestion(s) for original unique content here :) So best of luck for your goals :D
