Resolutions for a Virtual New Year

I'm here at DeCuir Creations Fireworks' New Year's Eve Ball Drop display, looking at the countdown clock to 2011 and pondering resolutions.

Last year I didn't really make any resolutions for the new year other than to use an emoticon of a person spinning on her head more often on Plurk. (Add me!) On that resolution, I succeeded wildly. That success has made me think that might expand my efforts into other areas.

If I do them, I won't call them resolutions though since that is too much pressure. I'll just call them "stuff I am going to do more of." Here are some of the possibilities:
  • I will leave comments on at least 6 blogs per week. (With one day for rest, of course.) I read so many blogs and I have so much fun doing it that I really should show my appreciation by commenting. 
  • I will be more social with my friends list in-world. Bear in mind - I always assume everyone on my friends list is very busy having deep discussions about how to fix the world economy or boinking, so this item might be very challenging to me. Also, I have friends notifications turned off. If I happen to IM you at the moment that you log in, and you think I am being obnoxious, please know that I have no freaking idea of when you logged in. I'm a patient woman. IM me back whenever. Also, please - if you actually *are* discussing Keynesian economics or pixel mating, tell me you are busy. It won't hurt my feelings. I don't want to mess up your chances for a Nobel prize and/or getting SLaid.
  • I will have more people in my blog pictures. I may put out a call for extras for pics so pay attention to my blog - or I'll just IM you. I'm going to shoot for 1/3-1/2 of my pictures having people in them. And yes, Jerremy counts.
  • Carve out time to do more for the SL Blogger group. This goal would be helped by having group chat actually work and the viewer interface stop hiding group notices quite so well, but whatever - I'll leave that to Humble's team. I'll start now: If you blog about SL and would like to join a group of people who enjoy the same hobby for fun, support and more, contact me or any other member of the SL Blogger group with your name and your blog URL for an invitation to the group.
Four seems like plenty for me to consider for the time being. 

OH! I forgot one I already promised to do on Plurk: if a person begs for Lindens or says something like, "Somebody buy me that [insert name of fatpack here]! *giggle*" or "I need a sugar daddy! *giggle*", I resolve to respond, "Get a job!" and shake my fists at them.
