You’re probably sick of hearing about them already, but face it – no matter how hard you fight it, you end up making resolutions for 2013. Although goals should be made all year round, you can’t help but start with a clean state with the new year. I find that the best way to reach your goals is to tell people. Humans hate disappointment, so it encourages us to work harder towards our goals. I’m going to share my goals with you, and I encourage you to share yours with me.
A few months ago, I stumbled across my 2012 resolutions post. I’m so glad I had posted it because I didn’t remember any of the resolutions I made. Funny thing I actually met all three without realizing it – blog on a regular basis, understand my camera, and focus more on cooking. I still think I can focus more on cooking, but I did blog some more savory dishes.
Here are my 2013 resolutions. Feel free to suggest tips or ideas on achieving these goals as well as sharing your resolutions with me:
1. Improve my story telling, both verbally and visually. It’s funny. Before attending Big Summer Potluck, I never considered myself a writer. Sure, I can string sentences together and talk about a recipe, but is that really writing? I visit sites that can beautifully describe an otherwise boring dessert, and here I am telling you to eat it with a spoon. Maybe that’s just my style, a part of who I am, but I do want to share more with you.
2. Photograph more savory foods. Maybe it’s because I focus so much on baking, but photographing savory foods is tough. Cookies are brown and meat is brown, but I sure have a hard time making meat look as good as cookies.
3. Categorize all of my posts. When I moved to WordPress, a lot of my posts got disorganized. I have some great recipes that I’d love to share again, except they are floating in Uncategorized Land.
Those are my main three. I have more, but they deal with blog maintenance that you will probably find boring.
What are your goals for 2013?
