With the New Year of 2016 approaching fast, I thought I would share a few of my goals (resolutions) here. As some people will tell you that if you write your goals or resolutions down it will make you more accountable. So here goes:
- Spend more time creating and less time on the computer! (Which means less blogging, less Facebook, less Pinterest and less mindless surfing!!!)
- Lose the weight I slowly gained over the past 10 years so that I can fit back into my favorite blue jeans again! *sigh*
- Exercise more.
- Make things I really want to make for myself, and family and friends.
- Get rid of stuff I no longer need, want or use by selling it, donating it, trading it, or just giving it away to someone.
- Stop buying and collecting more stuff I do not need!
- Do what makes me happy.
My husband will be the happiest man on Earth if I can accomplish those 7 goals, LOL!!!
I will still blog, even if it's less often than before. I hope I will be sharing much more creative stuff with you in the new year. So many other bloggers have turned to sharing on Facebook rather than to continue to blog. Blogging does take some time to do, but I enjoy blogging and reading other blogs too. Even though Facebook is supposed to be about connecting with friends and family, I find it more impersonal than a blog. Facebook is mostly sharing photos, or short videos or other stuff you find on the internet to share. I haven't gotten to know anyone any better from being on Facebook. So many people on Facebook I do not even know at all. I joined some groups like a few bag making groups and it's nice to see what those women have created, but I really only know a few of those women. I enjoy some things on Facebook, but it is the biggest time waster of all the stuff on the internet (in my opinion). I know some of you love Facebook, but I resisted joining it and finally gave in several months ago because of the bag groups I belong to. The idea how Facebook got started (connecting college students with other college students) was a good idea, but it is no longer just about connecting with a few friends at college. Businesses, the news media, the government, etc. all have Facebook connections. It is no longer about connecting with a few college friends or even beyond college friends. It's the whole world connecting. Some are closed private groups and there are so many of those groups out there that who has the time to connect with them all? 90% of the stuff posted on Facebook is from someone I do not even know. Instagram makes more sense if all you want is to look at or post photos, but since I do not have a cell phone, I found out that I cannot post photos on Instagram myself, which is probably a good thing for me as it means one less thing on the computer to waste my time with.
What about you my lovely readers and followers? Do you prefer to read a blog or Facebook or Instagram, etc? Is blogging fast becoming a dinosaur in today's world? I would be curious to know what others think about all the stuff that captures our attention on the internet these days.
