Year Round Up and Resolutions 2013

Year Round Up and Resolutions 2013
December 27, 2012 CuteCoco

Clock is ticking. Soon the New Years will be here. But before it happens, let’s take a moment to revisit CuteCoconut in 2012.

2012 opened with full of hope. I was at the top of my spirit, running toward my goal to make this a successful blog. We just settled in a new country and it was a new beginning all the way. I had just started my wonderful journey with Mom Blog Society and was in fire. But unfortunately the fun was short lived because I had been cut out of internet connection for quite so long. What can you expect after moving between two country?

And then in the middle of this year we were again moving out, this time back to our home country. Once again I was out of the game. Until recently I finally find my grip back and ready steady to welcome 2013.

I did score some paid gigs from my blog either within the blog (post, ad space, etc.) or offline but related to my blogging world. However it hasn’t been as big as I want it to be hence the strive continues.

This year I also managed to bring several giveaways to the table and found some more inspiring bloggers ever! Please allow me to have the pleasure to appreciate these bloggers who have been more than an inspiration for me to continue blogging and produce more and better content in 2012:


Pamela Maynard at Mom Does Reviews

LaDona Dennis, founder of Mom Blog Society

Dominique at Dominique’s Desk

Theresa at Theresa’s Mixed Nuts

Richard at The Butterbottom Blog

Maureen at Scoops of Joy

Jess at Essentially Jess

Maya at Morning Raindrops

Diana at Hot, Chocolate and Mint

Bebe at a Memory Bliss

Crissy at Dear Crissy

Toward the end of 2012 I have also met new blog friends and I can’t wait to have more fun with them in 2013 :)

Now, coming on to my resolutions for 2013….

To be honest with you I am one of those who don’t have a faith for resolutions. In my opinion resolutions are just like some rules, and rules are meant to be broken. Or aren’t they?

But that was last year. From time to time I used to write resolutions until one day I realized I was never able to keep up with it. By mid of January I already forgot half of my resolutions and when January ended, so did my resolutions history.

What makes a difference now?

Now I have a red alarm ringing in my ear. I am not 30 anymore. That was some two years ago and I see my life goals have only been half achieved.

I haven’t been an established writer. Almost every year for the past three years I have said to myself “this year I am going to write a book”. Never happened. Until couple weeks ago, when I took the courage to self-published my Saturday Mind series in a form of eBook called Mom Think Tank – a ballad of stay at home mom. I haven’t gone big yet and one of my resolutions for 2013 is to properly launch this book.

Personally, my resolutions in 2013 are to be a better and slimmer mom, wife and person.

Professionally, my resolutions in 2013 are everything about being an established blogger and eBook writer. And here is the list:

1. Introduce my Newsletter and get 500 subscribers

2. Produce better and more structured contents

3. Increase my blog statistics by 50% in all area

4. Start selling my eBook

5. Guest post on other blog once a month

6. Grow my FRONT hop

      Hi Nadia, thank you for visiting back! Yeah, learning from my past experience I try to keep the resolutions measurable by putting figures on it. Need a lot of lucks to keep on track though :)

    Awww, I feel so honored to be on your list! Thank you :)

    Those are some fabulous goals to work towards. I started this year out hoping to grow my blog bigger than what it is, but have learned that it is a steady process, and there is always room for growth. I am happy at the pace I am chugging along at, but do hope to grow even more next year.

    I just subscribed to your newsletter to help you reach your goal! Good luck, and I hope at the end of 2013 you do a post to let us know how well you did reaching those goals :)

    I love your goals. My goal is to finish my book, write at least 275 new articles, and finish my book. I have a big year with a move in the middle so I am going to prepare early and accomplish my goals.
