We know that this is the time for making New Year's resolutions or resolving to not make any.
A recent poll indicated that 55% of the responding people never make resolutions. Of the people who do make them over 50% of them never keep them.

For those of you who are retired and looking for more ways to stay in touch with your friends, children and especially your grandchildren, you have probably resolved to blog more or even start blogging.

Setting up your blog in is not only easy to do; it is free. They have made it very simple to set up and have a great step by step process. A video showing how to set up a Blogger blog was also found.

Once you have created your blog, or if you already have one; check out what Mark Joyner, creator of Simpleology 101, is going to be offering: a course on blogging. I would highly recommend, in fact -- resolve, to take a look at what he is offering. It might just be the piece that you need to keep your blogging resolutions.

I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you try it. Snag it here. snag

What is it that keeps us making New Year's resolutions year after year even when we know that we shall probably not keep them. One poll I saw reflected that 55% of the people they polled don't even make them anymore. Another poll asking how long people kept their New Year's resolutions reflected that only 4% of the people they polled always kept their resolutions.

My personal, unofficial opinion is that the reason resolutions suffer defeat so handily is the manner in which they have been made. I found a video on how to make resolutions that you will keep. Imagine that -- perhaps the reason we haven't been keeping our resolutions is that we have not been making them correctly. Take a look at what the videos are showing -- they make some sense. I am going to use his methods for some of my personal resolutions. But the overall resolution that I make to myself for my New Year is: I resolve to evolve!
