The year 2011 was a big year for me personally. It was the full first year with my twin girls. I became a stay-at-home dad. I was misdiagnosed with Guillian-Barre Syndrome, and eventually correctly diagnosed with Lyme disease.
But with so much on the go, my blogging took a hit. I didn’t have enough time to write. But I’m not the only one. A lot of my good friends have cut back on the blogging as real life interferes. A lot of popular blogs I follow have decided to call it quits for various reasons (Five for Smiting, Four Habs Fans, Melt Your Face Off).
I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions. I think it’s more realistic to have a general goal. Instead of saying something like “I want to go to the gym everyday,” it’s better to say “I want to lose 20 pounds in 2012.” That way, you don’t feel like as much as a loser if you can’t go to the gym for a few days for whatever reason. You’re also more likely to keep trying for the goal, instead of stopping early on.
So I’m going to try and blog as often as possible. I don’t have a set number in mind. I’ll write some shorter things, but I really enjoy the longer pieces (such as 23 reasons why the Canadiens should fire Bob Gainey). So hopefully I can get at least one or two of those a month. And hopefully, you’ll have more to read this year.
How about you? Do you have any goals for 2012?
