Tag Your Resolutions

I love the end of the year.

I know it’s mostly arbitrary, but something about the closing of the chapter of 2006 provides a wonderful opportunity to take a step back from the day to day and consider the things that made this year matter to you, and what you want to see matter next year.

It’s also when I get to read two of my favorite things of the year, resolutions and predictions. Resolutions always inspire me and predictions usually bring a smile to my face.

I’d love to read some of your resolutions and predictions for the new year. Let’s all tag our posts so we can see what each other are saying:

Use “2007 predictions” to tag your predictions for the new year.

Use “2007 resolutions” to tag your resolutions.

This has the added bonus of making your entries easier to find next year so you can see how right or wrong you are, and how well you were able to stick to your resolutions.

    Did people do this last year? It would be cool to quickly flip through predictions for 2006.

    As far as I know there wasn’t any group effort to tag entries like we’re doing this year. Also a year ago, WordPress.com only had about 50 thousand users, so there were a lot fewer people to share their thoughts.

    Plus this will be nicer to navigate if we want to read others’ new years resolutions and stuff.

    I’m planning on sticking some resolutions and predictions up later today, but I’d be interested in knowing how many people have been using some form of “Year in Review” in recent posts about the year that’s past. I started going through just to see what happened and to remind myself of things. Here’s the latest post; I’m putting the rest of them all up in the next 3-4 hours. I think it may be cool for some of us to look back on our most popular posts or those that may mean more now than before.

    Happy New Year everybody!

    Well, I only have a ‘My year in Review’ post and I don’t make resolutions, but I will definitely have a look through others. :)

    I made a post in which I ranted and raved about things that annoy me in hopes that people would wake up and slowly develop different habits. What tag would I use?

    I didn’t tag my 2006 predictions as such (obviously), but I did create and publish a list of them when I was back at Blogger. If anyone’s interested, they’re here.

    Happy new year all.

    As a one week old blogger I’m still learning to work wordpress. My reolution is to encourage Mystic Merv to make more predictions in 2007. Mystic Merv is a hermit from the Celtic fringes. He sometimes speaks out ‘from the big chair’, on his mountain fastness. He claims powers of divination in the tradition of a distant ancestor, Mystic Merl, consultant to King Arthur. Merv offers ten leadership predictions for 2007 with news of what will happen to Tony Blair (out), Google (unloved), Gordon of the big fist (will become PM) Bob Woodward (will do lots of interviews), The Big Green Mac Corporation (grren with envy at green image of other companies, and the monster Glaskazep merger (a mega merger of pharma firms

    i have a thing against using a tag for only one post (how wasteful! even though it’s not a physical kind of waste) so i hope nobody minds if i just plunk my resolution post here.

    I don’t really do the resolutions thing, but I do minor version of the year in review and the predictions (but not just for the upcoming year).

    With almost a month of blogging, there isn’t a long trail to measure yet, but maybe next year I will do something like this.

    when you make something public and create a stucture where you can/could be held accountable for your resolutions you add a certain * to the process – brilliant!

    I’ll probably be posting both eventually. The tag I’ll use is “cliche”. I figure that’s most apropos. ;) These 2007 resolutions/predictions pages are all over the blagonet. I don’t mean to trivialize. Like I said, I’m probably going to put some up too. It’s nice, comfy, fun cliche. Like some previous poster though, I’m not comfortable making a category that I only intend one post to fall under.
