Almost 1 week is remaining for the new year – 2010, to start. Every person in the meantime looks at some good and bad memories for the year that is going to end, and also decides some resolutions for the next year.

As a blogger, you can write articles which will help you to increase your readership, relations with other bloggers and blog traffic. These articles are not the ordinary one which you usually write. These are some special topics which you can write most probably at the end of year.

In such blog report post you can also write “Best Articles Of Your Blog”. This increases traffic and pageviews in a huge way. This is because there are some of your article which people may have missed in past and would love to read again. In such post, you can write Best Articles over a past one year in terms of traffic, comments and social media sharing.

2. Make Some Predictions For The Next Year

Making predictions creates lots of hype. It brings lots of people talking about it in two ways, one who agrees with the prediction and other who is against that prediction made by you.

I have been really thinking of what should I post for my blog before the year ends, and thank you for giving me such great ideas! I’m thinking of writing my next year’s goals and resolutions.

Jenn December 24, 2009 at 7:21 pm

Well, it’s a good idea. Write all your goals and resolutions, before 2011 comes, re-read you post and cross out what goal have you reached or accomplished.

Yup I wrote one like that to achieve before 2010 and may be I should write another on the year beginning.

If it’s me, resolution which i post on my blog still available for update. It’s because, sometime, i think some resolution is too much, so i make post about “Resolution 20xx Revision Version”

akira07, are you familiar with the site http://www.43things.com ? It’s good for flexible goals.

@Holly

Me too had a look http://www.43things.com… I was surprised to see lot of resolutions in that site.

Deepika December 31, 2009 at 6:23 pm

@akira07

As you are a full time blogger, You can try 300 post per year friend…

Jenn December 26, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Good. Hope you’ll achieve what you will write. Good luck! =D

Look, senthil already publish one resolution. 200 new post in his blog…How do you think? It’s too hard or too easy?

Senthil Ramesh December 26, 2009 at 7:23 pm

@Akira I just said it for example. To say correctly if you become a full time blogger, you can write 500 per year. Give a try?
.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..NoviceBloggers Celebrates Christmas with its 50th Article =-.

akira07 December 28, 2009 at 8:53 pm

Well, even i’m full timer, i think 500 is too many….

akira07 December 25, 2009 at 8:56 am

Good idea, anyway what is the difference between goals and resolution? I’m already make 3 list of 2011 resolution, i will thinking 2 more, and then post it.

Senthil Ramesh December 26, 2009 at 11:47 am

I think there is no much difference. “I will not speak lie in 2010” this is resolution. “I will achieve 200 posts in my blog by the end of 2010” this is goal as well as resolution. Hope it is clear.

akira07 December 26, 2009 at 5:21 pm

Let’s see, it’s not too hard…
1 year = 365 day and there is a day you create about 2 article/day.
Good luck…!!!

Senthil Ramesh December 26, 2009 at 7:24 pm

Well yes that makes the post count 700 per year. Goals should be achievable Akira.

@Senthil Ramesh

Best wishes for your goals… I think already you wont speak lie… Keep that habit throughout….

Happy New Year Friend

Holly Jahangiri December 28, 2009 at 6:09 am

“Full time blogger” would mean “laid off and can’t afford to pay for DSL,” so it’s not on my list for 2010. 😉
.-= Holly Jahangiri´s last blog ..It’s the Dopamine, You Dope! =-.

akira07 December 31, 2009 at 2:57 am

Haha, it’s a choice :). Your resolution, so you’re the one who decide it.
But about fulltime blogger…I’m sure when you’re become full timer, your earning is increased and you can pay for the DSL. SO, i think that point is not ambitious to be listed on 2010 target.

Jenn December 31, 2009 at 7:03 pm

I think there’s nothing really different between the two. I am a little confused with resolution and goals as well.

Senthil Ramesh December 25, 2009 at 10:26 am

Its never late and I am preparing some of these.

akira07 December 26, 2009 at 5:57 am

Is “Beating Akira07 on Some Contest” will be your 2010 resolution :P?
Well, sometime i make funyn resolution. For example, when i create resolution for 2008, one of my list is : “Increase my Japanese Music Collection about 200GB”

@Senthil
But i see your talent on contest. It’s so waste if you’re not become treasure hunter. Trust me, participating on contest is not that hard except which based on top point. Participate on drawing system is OK.

Well, on your resolution post, would you like to mention about the job?

I’s depend on what new year article type you’ll write 😛
Yeah but i agree, if it’s resolution, 15 minute is not enough since thinking of it is need so many consideration

write one this week!

Yeah, if we got a clear idea regarding what we going to write, then we can finish it within 30min

Holly Jahangiri December 28, 2009 at 6:05 am

I’m with you, Senthil. I could write a post in 15 minutes, but odds are I would not be happy with it. I write for a living, and this notion that a post should only take 10-15 minutes either means you’re an incredibly FAST writer, or that your grammar and spelling stink and you put no thought at all behind the words. 😉 Not pointing any fingers here, akira07 – I think you may actually be one of the rare, fast writers and participating in a blog comment contest that requires MEANINGFUL comments probably helps limber up your brain and fingers. But for most, it just means careless writing.

Holly Jahangiri December 28, 2009 at 6:02 am

I usually do #5, with a critical look back at the previous year, to see how many (if any) of my goals I’ve accomplished. I’m usually surprised at how many of my stated goals – the ones I’ve written down and shared with anyone – I manage to cross off the list. This does give some credence to the whole “Law of Attraction” idea (although I don’t think I can suspend my disbelief long enough to decide you’re all figments of my imagination and exist only to do my bidding… 😉 And aren’t you glad of that?) I try never to call them “resolutions.” The one “resolution” I ever kept for more than five years was, “Never to make any more stupid New Year’s Resolutions I have no intention of keeping.” It’s more of a mission statement and plan for the coming year. Let’s just tell ourselves that, anyway.

akira07 December 28, 2009 at 8:48 pm

No matter you said it with another term, i hope your “resolution” is successful. I’m waiting for your “resolution” article.

I am in process of writing a blogging goals for 2010 post. It’s definitely a great idea, as you can give your readers a taste of what they can expect from you in the coming year, and it also gives you a guide of what you will want to be working on in the future. I also did two “best of” posts for blogging and social media for my site, which summarized my best articles on my blog’s two main themes. The end of the year and beginning of the next do open doors for great topics!

You are right friend.. Write article regarding that help us to work on that whenever we saw that post.. And also it inform our readers about our blog goals. Sharing information with others always make us happy and it will motivate us when other give encouragement

akira07 December 29, 2009 at 12:20 pm

Hi guys, i’m just post my resolution for 2010 in my blog. Well, the resolution is written quickly so it’s temporary and i think there maybe a revision.
