Hereby Resolved

Yes, of course I have resolutions! Actually, I have not done typical new year's resolutions the last few years, choosing a word instead. But I feel like I need more concrete goals this year. And as a blogger, of course I will share them with you. But also as a blogger, I will spread them out over several posts, thus maximizing one idea for as much content as possible. I'm smart like that.

Perhaps I should resolve to use less commas and write more simple sentences.


My resolutions fall into neat categories, more or less. Convenient, that.

The one that is perhaps of most interest to any readers is that I am recommitting myself to consistent writing. I will likely never be an every day blogger. I don't like repeating myself and I find that I don't have enough to say that is worth sharing daily, at least most of the time.

I want to bring thoughtful, interesting, maybe even sometimes inspiring words to this space. I want to be authentic about who I am, what I'm struggling with, what I'm celebrating. I will still write about fashion because I just love clothes and there's no point pretending I don't. I hope to balance more substantive posts with lighter entries. Because not every day is serious and thought-provoking nor is it always easy and fun. I'll still write about fitness, because that is still important to me too. And a blogger can't have six kids and a funny husband without writing about that sometimes too.

As I share my other resolutions you'll see where my content will come from, at least in part. I'm excited to start a new year with a renewed focus on writing.


  1. Good luck getting back into the writing swing of things! I like fashion posts too. Does that make me silly? Eh, maybe. But they're so fun!

  2. Your resolution is similar to mine. I'm aiming for 3 posts a week...just as soon as my neck strain goes away.

  3. Yay! More posting is a good resolution! Anxious to hear the rest of them!

  4. Good luck in your resolutions! Most things you write are exactly what I'm thinking too. So far, we're on the same page for 2013! :)

  6. Yay! More blogs! I love how real you are -- and how one day I'm getting fashion ideas and the next I'm getting the life-of-a-super-busy-mom perspective. And the running ones, well, they just make me feel lazy. :-P

  7. I think you do a good job of balancing it out. And I love when you Just Write. ;)

  8. 3 cheers for more writing!! So happy to be back here and have added you to my links so that I can keep up!


I'm dying to know what you have to say, so talk already! Thanks!
