New Year’s Resolutions for 2014

Enter the Hangout

Today is New Year’s Eve and I can not believe that we will be kissing 2013 goodbye in a matter of hours.  I had a busy year in both my professional life and personal life.  Three of my kids started school in a brand new building,  my oldest went on a mission trip in Montana,  my husband started a new position with his company and I finally got my youngest potty trained.  In my professional life I started Healthy Moms Media, and watched my social media following and subscribers grow tremendously.  So what is in store for 2014?

Every year I set goals and resolutions in order to become a better person.  I work hard personally and professionally.  This year is no exception.

1. Personal Life – Establish a Deeper Connection with my Husband

This April we will celebrate 11 years of marriage.  I love my husband, but it is extremely difficult connecting with him emotionally and I have a hard time meeting his needs. This year I am going to make my marriage a priority and reconnect with my husband on a deeper level.  Most of all I want him to be happy.  In 2014 I am going to try harder to be the best wife that I can be. By the end of the year my wish is that my husband will be happier and our marriage will be more enjoyable.

2. Personal Life – Make More Time for the Lord Jesus

I have been slacking on this and feel extremely ashamed because of it.  My relationship with God is very important and it still needs work. At the beginning of 2013 this was a resolution for me and every year it continues to be one.  This year I am planning on making sure I set aside time every day to read my bible and pray more.  My life is stressful and the only thing that gets me through the tough times is my faith.  If I ignore the Lord the tough times and difficult days will just become unbearable.  Only He gives me strength.  I also want to set a good example for my children, especially my seven-year-old daughter whom will be celebrating her First Holy Communion this May.

3. Personal Life – Make more Time for Fitness

I am a fit and healthy person but there is always room for improvement.  My goal for 2014 is to work out for 30 minutes 5 days a week.  With the help of The FitBook I believe I will stick with this resolution.

4. Professional Life – Grow All My Social Media Following Even More

In order to attract larger accounts and brands it is vital for bloggers like me to have thousands of social media followers. This blog is my business as much as it is a hobby.  I need to be more competitive with other women in my field.  It is very important that I maintain the reputation of this website as “The Number One Health Blog for Moms.”  I have researched ways on how to grow Google+, Facebook and other social media sites, for 2014 I am planning on putting what I have learned to practice and chart my growth on a spreadsheet so that I can be accountable and know what works and what does not.  By the end of 2014 I want to triple my social media following.

5. Professional Life – Create More Buzz and Meaningful Discussions Online in Health and Wellness for Moms

I need to encourage the members of Healthy Moms Social to participate in discussions, share blog posts, and create a buzz on that website.  I am still learning how to grow my social network.  By the end of 2014 I would like to gain 100 new members per week, and have 60% of them active on the site.

Blog about topics that more people will want to comment on. This blog is lacking in the comments department and it needs to change. I provide good quality content, but I know it can improve.  My goal for 2014 is to attract 10 comments per every new post.  In order to do this I am going to run a giveaway every week, and host three memes with linkys. Bloggers love to leave their links and people love giveaways.  I believe this will be a great way to encourage more comments as well.

These are my five New Year’s Resolutions for 2014. As long as I put my best effort into these goals I believe I will meet every single one by the end of the year.  What are your New Year’s Resolutions for 2014?
