New Year's Celebration and $25 To Your PayPal #Giveaway!


 I'm launching a New Year's Giveaway to precede all the other great giveaways that I have planned for 2012!  Have you noticed all of the blogs that are combining to give away great gift cards and PayPal cash?  I've been a part of some of them and I've had a lot of fun.  I will occasionally do more of them, but I really love the personal involvement I have when I do one of my own.  
    I just had a brief Twitter conversation with a blogger who I admire very much and we talked about making New Year's Resolutions.  It was about whether or not we were making resolutions this year.  At the end of the giveaway I'll let you know if I made any and if so, what they are.  If I didn't,  I'll tell you why.  In the meantime, I want to know if you've made any New Year's Resolutions!  So go ahead, enter for the chance to win that extra $25 to your PayPal account and here's to 2012 and all of our hopes and dreams!  May they come true for you!

I don't usually do new year's resolution. The one and only is always to stay healthy.

Glogirl said...

Every year I make informal resolutions. Most years it is to eat healthier and exercise daily. I have yet to truly follow through!

dv8 said...

I make plans to do things but not resolutions based on arbitrary dates.

Tiffany Little said...

I always have things I want to accomplish each year but I never set a resolution. I think it just sets people up to fail.

I don't make New Years resolutions. You make them, you keep them for a few weeks, if that, then they go by the wayside. You end up feeling bad because you didn't keep to the resolution. You end up making the same resolutions year after year. Better to try for small goals whenever you think of them. For Christmas however, I did promise my baby (the 4-legged kind) a few more walks than last year. Baby steps - a few more walks.

Oh, I was supposed to answer, why or why not.
I don't, because I don't believe in them. If you want to make a change, you can do it on any day of the year and stick to it.

michele376 said...

There are so many things in my life that I need to change but I don't feel that making New Years resolutions will help. I am going to take it one day at a time. I will celebrate my successes, accept my failures and start fresh the next day.

I did make some, but I don't know why. I always insist on making them, but very rarely keep them.

Jude Skocki Kelly said...

I normally don't because they usually set you up for failure. This year I did however, because my life depends on it, literally!

I didn't make a resolution, mainly because I am more likely to succeed if I don't start out saying I have to.
