2. Actually be consistent in updating the blog - I'm aiming for a new post every Tuesday and Friday so that people will know when to check for updates (...on Tuesdays and Fridays, for those who needed more clarification).
Also, if you're looking for a late, cheap holiday present for me, as I know so many people are, follow my blog by clicking the big "Follow" button on the right side of the screen. My secret New Year's Resolution (secret means not on my official list of resolutions found above) is to look cooler and have more followers that don't necessarily share my last name. Because looking cool is what's important in life. And, if you become a follower, you get a prize. That prize is that every time you look at your Google Reader, it will tell you if my blog has been updated since you last checked. Best. Prize. Ever.
