What are Your 2012 Blogging Resolutions?

January 3rd, 2012

It’s the new year, so what does that mean for you and your blog?

Are you going to pick a new theme, maybe customize the one you have, perhaps blog about more things and spice up your posts with some added media and links, or maybe something as simple as just blogging with an up-to-date browser?

Last year, I made a resolution to blog more often on my personal blog. I definitely met that goal with 107 posts in 2011 vs. a meager 28 in 2010. This year, I’m aiming for even more.

How about you? What’s your 2012 blogging resolution?

    I currently have two blogs – a fitness and nutrition blog and a small business accounting blog. I have several blogging goals for 2012 – the first is to start a new blog focused on Local Internet Marketing – the second goal is to be more consistent with my posts especially with my small business accounting blog. My third goal, probably should be my first goal, is to listen to my readers and provide the solutions they are looking for. Here’s to blogging success in 2012!

    Well, James, my 2012 blogging resolution was to create not just a new theme, but a completely new site (Generosity News) dedicated to highlighting who’s doing what, in the world of philanthropy, charity and altruism. I launched it on 1 January, and hope to get it properly organised over the next week or two. I have to admit that already I’ve been very pleasantly surprised by all the wonderful things that are going on, around the world, and how much generosity there still is – despite the economic climate. I particularly like Doug’s comment about listening to what our readers want… a surefire formula for blogging success, if ever I heard one!

    I just started playing with my blog again after a long hiatus. My goal this year is quite simply to be a bit more consistent with my posts, add a theme and a few plugins and generally make the site something other than what it is today. Maybe pick up a thing or two along the way about WordPress as well.

    My goals are fairly simple when it comes to blogging. My goal is to get a blog on with which I can blog with normal posts but also show of my photochallenge entrys. It’s hard to find a theme that suits my needs and also looks good. Oh and it also has to be free. Im not the guy that wants to spend 100 dollar on a theme, not liking it, and not getting my money back.

    My resolution this year is to increase the number readers, subscribers and followers to at least a thousand this year. We’ll do that by increasing the number of our blog posts and optimize social media to draw attention to them.

    My new year resolution or goals are to learn as much as possible from others. Listen a bit more this year!

    New Years Resolutions….

    Well for one i am starting to eat a lot more healthily and getting fit, as a web developer/designer I dont exactly do much moving about as a matter of fact im pretty sedentary 80%+ of the day! My second new years resolution isn’t going anything that i didn’t do last year but its just learn more within the coding area. After starting my new job in October I have learned a great deal within website design and developing and am looking to exceed and learn even more this year!

    My blogging resolution?

    It has to be that I will try and reach over 300 posts on my webmagazine/blog.

    To keep on publishing things to my personal blog after february and keep on finding good monthly themes for the year.

    And to give my english blog a workover so that it can be revived from it´s slumber.

    That´s it I think :)

    I learned my lesson well since the Panda Update on October 2011. My number one blogging resolution is: write the highest quality content possible for my blog niche. That’s it.

    Thanks for this post. Happy 2012! :-)

    Try and make my content more user friendly,use more appropriate images and write more cornerstone content linked to individual posts

  13. Brandon Schultz (1 comments.) says:

    Blog Daily. I feel much better when I do.

  14. Brian (1 comments.) says:

    As for my blogging goals, I want to post articles insightful enough that make people want to share them. Something that doesn’t happen enough right now. To go along with that, I’d like to use my blog to promote my speaking and obtain some speaking engagements in my area.

      Here here to the insightful posts. I’m always envious of blogs like Daring Fireball, and SplatF. They seem to put out thought provoking content both consistently and effortlessly.

      Like you, I’d like to add real value to the conversations at hand.

    My blogging solution you say?

    Start blogging actively! I remember a year ago that I would finally start blogging actively on my blogs, now when I look back and the amount of blogs I actually did, I ain’t to happy with myself. My goal is to post at least twice a week across a range of blogs. I bought myself a new coffee machine, so I am ready for some action!

  16. Jamie Northrup (7 comments.) says:

    Blog more often and more consistently, also make the posts longer.

    So far it’s been 2 weeks and a half, and I have to say it’s working well :)

  17. Craig Robertson (1 comments.) says:

    This is my first year of blogging, so I have spent several weeks/ months reading and listening in order to help my self produce some works that will be of value to the community and not just a reproduction of somebody else’s works. Which it would appear is endemic on the web. So I will be kicking things off next week and hope I can share a quality opinion on the desired subject matters.
