New Year New You
New Year New You…and hopefully new me too! I received an email from Pinterest about New Year New You boards, and was really inspired by the idea so I thought I’d not only share my resolutions, but also inspirations for New Year New You – 2014 (New Year New You Pinterest Board)! I was very curious about New Years Resolutions in terms of statistics, so I did some digging and found that ‘people who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions’ (source)
As always, I’d love to hear from you – have you made resolutions? What are some of your New Years Resolutions, goals and inspiration for the new year?
Below are the inspiration boards in no particular order I’ve put into my New Year New You Pinterest board:
Yup, that’s our pup (Clover) in the pictures. This year we want to take a road trip with her! The ASPCA has a wonderful list of tips on how to travel with your dog found here. We plan on going on lots of hikes and sightseeing along the way Milwaukee to New Orleans with a few stops in between and on the way back.

Resources for How to grow your blog: How to grow your blog in 2014 , How to write an ebook (I’m writing a Five Ingredient Friday ecookbook this year!!) Soon I will be publishing a guide on how to start a blog which I’m super excited about (using the same service I used to get my domain name and hosting called Bluehost and then making it pretty with StudioPress.com!) If starting a blog seems complicated, it’s not,so I can’t wait to share the step by step guide…but I read a great analogy that sums up the process-building a blog is like building a car 1) the engine and under the hood is getting the domain name and hosting your website and then installing the wordpress.org platform which you can do directly from the hosting site 2) the frame and body of the car is something called The Genesis Framework and then 3) the paint job and making it pretty with themes is StudioPress.com
