I usually avoid making New Year’s resolutions. I figure the fewer goals you set for yourself, the fewer failures you will have throughout the year. Nonetheless, I generally resolve every year to get into better shape. In fact, just last year I pledged to lose somewhere between 10 and 15 pounds by the end of the year. I liked that resolution so much that I’m going to make the same one again this year.

So why would this year’s resolution fair any better than last year’s? Because I now have a blog of course. And blogs make everything better. I figure that if blogs can help keep the mainstream press honest, my blog should be able to help me shed unwanted pounds. And if it doesn’t help, well at least I’ll have another topic to complain about here.
