Boost My Blog Friday - 1/07



Happy New Year Everyone! We hope everybody had a great time these Holidays, and you're ready to start the blogging fun. So hold on your shoes cause here comes Boost My Blog Friday back here at Design It Chic!




For those of you new here, it's very simple.. the only rule is: no rules!! That's right!! This blog-hop is supposed to be a boost in our blogs' asses... friends-wise:)!!
So just make sure you link with us, follow us as the hostess (and leave us a comment so we know you follow us and return the love back:) and then feel free to follow whoever you want to, leave nice comments, send them love notes and chocolate boxes *WOW scratch that last part:P* and don't forget to do the happy dance!

If you join with us on Boost My Blog Friday, please take your time and leave a comment, so we know you're participating with us and maybe pay you a visit:) Thanks!



And as always, today we have another question for you:
Do you make any New Year's resolutions? If so, do you ever keep them?

We are very excited over the 2011 plans! We always make resolutions on New Year's Eve, but we also focus on keeping them realistic and writing them down as a list of things to do. If we knock most of them down, that's awesome! If not, there's the next year to take over again. It might sound like a waste of time to make resolutions if you don't get to accomplish all of them, but it's not quite so. For some, a go-as-it-comes deal might work perfect, but for us, we need the plans. So Hear-Hear to a new year full of plans and joy! What about you guys? Do you make any New Year resolutions or do you manage to get things done as they come? Share your secrets with us!! We won't tell anyone;) ha ha

And don't forget to check Blogger tutorials for more blog-handy tips and easy HTML tutorials, plus you can check SEO or Unclutter tips for more improving your web traffic secrets!:) Happy Friday!

I don't usually make New Year's Resolutions per say, but I did make out a list of goals for blogging. Sort of a list to refer to from time to time to keep myself on track.

I don't make resolutions. Why set yourself up for failure. I consider the NEW YEAR a new beginning and proceed as such.

Thanks for the Blog Hop. I'm a new follower and I also have your button posted on my blog. As far as New Years Resolutions, I think the best way is to write them down and tell someone you know will support and encourage you. It's only been a few days, but so far so good. Look forward to keeping in touch. :)
