Last year I wrote a post to say farewell to 2009, and I would like to continue that tradition this year.
I don’t “do” resolutions. Resolutions seem to imply large, sweeping changes that are likely unsustainable. Since I don’t like setting myself up for failure, I like to set some reachable goals for myself instead.
As for last year’s goals, I feel I did well. I think I’ve improved my food photography, I’ve definitely posted more comments on blogs I enjoy, and have my blogroll, categories, and tags in much better order than last year.
Personally, I was two for two! Not only did I get involved in San Diego activities (including work) and make some friends, but I also saw more of California on our road trip. Hooray! I also started my health coaching program at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition which has been an amazing journey for me.

My blogging goals for 2011
- Not that I won’t continue to improve my photography, but I hope to focus on better writing in the new year. I’ve especially slipped trying to keep up with NaBloPoMo and the end of the year holidays.
- Write guest posts for other blogs. Now that some other writing outlets are gone, I would like to expand my reach a bit to the readers of other blogs.
- Launch my health coaching site — this is already in the works! Readers of my newsletter get to see it first. Join my mailing list now!
- Get back in the New Food Friday habit for the new year, possibly with slightly altered rules to make it easier for me to keep up.
- Redesign the site a bit. It’s been a while and I think it could use more than a coat of paint after this long to keep it fresh.
Personal goals I need to think through a bit more. I’ll try to share later this week.
Now we’re off to spend the evening with good friends to ring in 2011.
