Every year people make resolutions to do various things throughout the year. On average, it seems like pretty close to none of those things happen. This helps keep the resolution market wide open, since most of the time you can just repeat the pledge (and failure) next year. Some people use weight loss, or smoking, or other such things as their serial resolution. I seem to use blogging.
2008 came and went on my blog in about the same way as ever. I told myself I’d say a lot, but ended up not saying a whole lot at all. What I did say was mostly political, which is really not the point of this blog. Sometimes I fell into the trap of not wanting to write because of how little I had written. Usually, it just didn’t occur to me to write.
The resolution this year is a little bit different because things this year are a little bit different. I’m still going to resolve to write more, and I still expect that I will most likely fail. I have a different outlet for my politically oriented posts thanks to some friends, which leaves this blog free to focus, as it should, on my life. Now that I’m not at college anymore I hope to use blogging as a way to continue practicing writing in the absence of papers and reports for school. If I can really get into the zen of this, I might even find a way to write shorter posts.
So there it is, my internet resolution for 2009. Guess we’ll see how it goes.
