Out with the old
In with the new
What is your goal?
Happy New Year to you!
I am going to make a resolution to love myself more in 2015. Because, I believe if I will do that, I will be able to love others even more.

Glad you started this one, WF!
If you're talking about HP, my goals are to continue tweaking content, to promote a bit (I have been remiss in that!) and to refresh my 'topics' indicators on hubs - I had forgotten those were even part of the system, and your post helpfully steered me to them!
Not sure if you want the other stuff I plan to do?
There are three New Year's Days in my country and the Gregorian Sylvester isn't one of them. In fact I have a dentist appointment on January 1st, so it will be a day of Novocain not Champaign.
Anyway, I thought some people would have some inspiring goals for 2015 on HubPages (or otherwise).
For me: I would like to catch up on all the emails in my Writer Fox inbox. I'm about three months behind right now!
My goal this year is to finish paring down my online writing efforts and return to the real world. One day it dawned on me - the whole point of giving up a high-paying job to write was to do something I love, even if it meant accepting a lower income. But I don't enjoy online writing that much, because it's not all about writing: you have to put at LEAST as much time into keyword research, SEO, promotion, email marketing, etc etc. And quite frankly, all that stuff bores me to tears. Given the choice between doing all that tedious drek and going back to my old job, I'd take my old job back in a heartbeat!
I know a few people who love that side of online writing and good luck to them - it just doesn't work for me.
I've closed down most of my sites so I'm now down to two affiliate websites which I'll keep as long as they're earning without any work; my HubPages account; a site for my web design work; and a marisawright .com site which I'll need if I ever get my novel finished.
Marisa - I'm glad you're not leaving HP - we would miss you!
Had I bailed from a full-time job to write here, I'd be in a panic at this point. As with you, the whole 'online game' was one of my learning curves. I don't enjoy that part of it, but I am thankful for this site, thankful for what I've learned here, and even more thankful for everyone I've met.
Traffic might come and go, and my writing may ebb and flow, but the community here will remain in my heart.
My main goal for 2015 is to work on things that will improve the way others deal with reality. Some may wonder why and how, but that is for me to know and for those others to come to terms with and learn as the opportunities come their way.
I undertook a major project in the last part of November to keep people coming to my business website every day (I'm self-employed), and my goal is not to fall behind. (It's a database that will probably involve close to 10,000 records, with something to promote every day, so I'm setting that up to promote each year automatically. So far I'm working on February 12 and I have almost a thousand database records, so my estimate of 10,000 is not far off.) I plan on staying a month ahead of the current date but six weeks would probably be better if I can. After May the work will probably start tapering off but then I have ebooks to publish and video courses to design.
Get to 100 hubs.
Hit payout every month.
Have a great New Year, everyone!
I need to edit some of my hubs and make them more worthwhile for people to spend time on. Then, I need to write new hubs. I am only a few months here so I am just feeling my way.
I did so terrible with my 2014 resolutions that I'm not making any for 2015. Gonna be an interesting year though...
I'm with this! I never make resolutions, because they never get kept! :-)
Will TRY to improve my traffic and income on HP, but that's not a resolution.
OK, we won't hold you to it then. But, I predict both of those things will happen for you in 2015.
Same as last year: Keep throwin' goofy stuff against the wall and hope that some of it sticks occasionally...
Life is a war of attrition. And we all lose in the end.
Fighting Entropy is a constant battle.
Life is a revolt against the rules of Nature. Life is a paradox.
The most basic rule of inanimate nature is that it tends toward equilibrium which is at the maximum of entropy (i.e. disorder) and the minimum of free energy. Maximum entropy means complete randomness, disorder. Life goes against this trend. The main characteristic of life is that it tends to decrease its entropy (builds and maintains structure and order). It also tends to increase its free energy. Life is made possible by order, structure, a pattern, which is the opposite of entropy. This pattern is our chief possession, it was developed over billions of years. The main aim of our individual existence is the conservation and transmission of this pattern and order. It takes energy and a constant resolve to fight against entropy.
Me thinks you dropped by my subdomain...
As for yours, 1,166 hubs is awesome!
My new year's resolution is in the image below and contact me to get more of these new quotes ...
I usually don't make resolutions but this year I decided to restart something I did a couple of years ago. It involves sorting, organizing, and downsizing the contents of ONE drawer, cupboard, closet or other storage space, per day.
Last time I did this I got through two bedrooms, a bathroom and a linen closet-- it actually made a positive difference.
This time I'm jotting down what is done each day on a big legal pad, with dates and locations. If a space is small-- like a drawer, I might do two or more. If it is large like a closet, I might do it a section at a time. The idea is to start at one spot in a room and clean out each space sequentially.
Today I am putting away holiday decorations.
Better blogs... I haven't had time to write... more writing! better writing !
I need to learn more about Hub Pages and figure out why my Amazon ads show sometimes and don't at other times. It's not the amount of words in the article per ad, as some have stated (I have one article that has 559 words so far and the Amazon module remains blank no matter what I do). Then I need to write more hubs and promote, promote, promote.
The word count dictates how many Amazon capsules you're allowed to add to a Hub - it doesn't affect whether the products show or not.
I'd say it's very likely you haven't set up your Amazon capsules properly. How did you choose your products? Have you entered your Amazon ID in your account or signed up for the HubPages Amazon program?
If you have an ad blocker turned on, you won't see the Amazon ads. If you put the title of that Hub here, I'll see if your ad shows for me.
My goal for the new year is to get writing! I just started here at HubPages and want to continue to grow in this community. I hope to put out lots of new hubs this year. I also hope to get people to follow me, so I can grow my profile!
Please follow me!
For 2015, I would like to really dive into internet writing, and marketing. While I have background in writing, and marketing, this is my first true attempt at building myself as an online writer.
Aside from hubpages, and online writing, I plan on diving into the bible on a deeper level. Seeing as how my first son is due in about two weeks, I also plan to do the best I can at being the best father I can be.
I hope to see you guys around the hub!
My new year goals are to earn more traffic and earnings. I also wish to polish my writing skills.
Happy New Year, Fox and everybody.
My goals are to continue on with HP, doing the best I can.
Spruce up my web site and add an online store. (I have some crafts to sell).
Pay more attention to my Blog.
Be good to myself and get all medical needs taken care of.
Finish my books and get them published.
Continue to be grateful for the friends I have met on HubPages.
I'm going to try to write more. Not just on Hubpages, but also starting a novel. I'm also planning on going back to school in the fall, so I'm going to be squirreling away every cent I can spare.

Do you make new year resolutions and if so, do you follow them sincerely?
by Jerrico Usher 9 years ago
I've been on HubPages now for about 10 months and it took that long to generate 100.00, but since I hit my 100th hub or so my monthly revenue has gone up about 30.00 a month and I'm starting to see some decent change rolling in now.. seems a snowball effect happens when you get enough chump change...

Or any other New Years Resolutions in general...
by yolanda yvette 7 years ago
I didn't. I stepped away for about nine months for stupid reasons, which caused me to lose a lot of productivity time.I look at people who have been here for short periods of time who have written more hubs than me and it makes me more motivated than ever to be as great at this thing as I can...

What is the difference between Resolutions and setting goals?Many people speak of New Year resolutions, and yet I think it is more productive to set goals and a "to do" list to help you accomplish those goals...What do you think? Also what are the difference between resolutions and goal...
by SEXYLADYDEE 5 years ago
Since New Years Resolutions are rarely maintained how do you inspire yourself to achieve goals?I have bucket list goals, life goals, parenting goals, crafting goals and more. My journal is the place to keep them listed and chart my progress. Why do we have trouble keeping on track when we set goals...
