I think my "main goal" will be to write my frugal cook book and self publish it. I have been meaning to write a book of some sort for years and its one thing I never get around to doing.. They say there is a book inside each and everyone of us!!!! And that if you are going to write about anything...write about what you know, that way it won't be so hard to write!!!!! I can do this, just need to put my mind really to it and orangize myself and not to be SO LAZY!!!!!! LOL What is your main goal going to be for 2013 and do you think you will complete the goal?

A frugal cook book? Great! I want a signed edition when you publish. I think everyone has atleast one book in them too. Lazy? What is that? I guess my main goal for 2013 is to write more and get some items I have started finished. I would also like to brush up on my English.

Lazy!! That is me!!!! Well I don't really think I'm lazy just think about doing too much in a space of time and then because I can't get it done I then feel lazy, so really my goal should be not to over plan myself You write loads already, wish I could write as much as you. your english is grand. I sure you know more frugal dishes than me!!! What book have you got in you?

I think my main goal for 2013 will be to have fun (and be lazy?!) -- I spent too many years as a workaholic and when I didn't have to work any more, I sort of threw myself into a whirlwind of activities, so that sometimes it feels like it is still work. It would be cool to just slow down for a while.

My goal is to multiple what I earned in 2012 and establish my own business. I earned some money from mylot and I'm able to use it to buy craft supplies to support my craft projects, I earn some money from my craft selling and I'm willing to double the earning next year I'm not a talented writer but I do have goal to complete my thesis and earn my degree so I can use it to apply for a better job, I was supposed to complete it this year but I got accident and had head injury so I have to complete it next year. It won't be an easy task to do but I must put a great effort to complete my goal. My plan to reach my goal is by motivating myself and also practice it (practicing writing in my blogs, participating in article competition, etc) Wish you the best in completing your goal

Hi Anne, yes it has been a while. I have been really busy this month, besides trying to find an agent, I am doing that writer's challenge, NaNoWriMo. This is my first year and I am so behind schedule, I don't know if I will make the required goal of 50,000 words by the end of the month. So if you reply back here and I don't right away, you know why...:)
@Anne18 (11036)

Lovely to hear from you. Glad that you are doing ok. Hope you find an agent soon, can you not self publish? Have you a link for the writer's challenge?

To be honest I haven't got massive goals I would just like to keep my family safe, secure and comfortable. I fully aim to make more money next year than I have this year. I'd love to write a book one day but not sure 2013 is the year for me to write. Good luck hope it goes well.
@Anne18 (11036)

Wow that was quick in replying.. thank you. I've loved ot write a book for many years so hoping that 2013 will be my year, like you others years haven't been for me and the time hasn't been right, but now hopefully the time will be right.. children teenagers now and don't need me so much so time for me to do something for myself. Also want the family to be safe and happy
18 Nov 12
That's okay, sorry for the slow reply back I have been a busy been lol. My children are 4 and 3 so maybe when they are older and less dependent on me I will find the time to write a book that means alot to me. I really hope yours goes well.

I think my biggest goal for 2013 would be to get a good final mark for my BSc and start a masters or find a job/work experience. I'd also quite like to lose that a stone or so. I lost about 2 stone, but I've not been very focused recently, and so I just keep fluctuating back up and down the last half a stone or so, and I'd quite like to see it gone for good! The other thing is to keep up with my blog, though I'm not sure that's a goal so much as a plan!

I began a new hobby in the early part of this year making jewellery. I made so much I decided to buy a tent and a table and take my stuff to the markets. I only had a few dozen pieces...necklaces, bracelets, earrings and I did quite well. I've also done really well selling to friends. My next decision is do I buy another table and get a web site up and running. I've met someone who will build me a web site and manage it for me for $200 a year and that's very good value I think. The thing is, I do not want to get to successful because that will mean taxes and lots of red tape. I don't count the workload because it's something I love doing. So, I guess my goal is to resolve the issues and see where those decisions take me.

For now, it's to save money in two categories; long term, looking 30 years into the future, and short term, to get some things that my husband and I really want. He wants some new software, and I want to go to New York City. Fortunately we're doing OK. We just made a wise investment for our long term savings, and the way we're putting money away, we should each have what we want by the beginning of February.

I don't set goals for myself, but if I have to set at least one, I'd say it would be to see 2014 and beyond. That's most likely achievable.

My goal is to write more. I've been very sick this year, but getting much better. I made the most at Yahoo Voices this month than I have ever made. I made $99.86 this mo th for page views. I hope to increase that to $100 plus every month. I have 1300 pieces that draw passive income. I want to write at least 5 articles or poems each month. Haikus are very popular. Anyway, my goal is to make more passive income.
@Anne18 (11036)

Hope you are not feling sick any more and very good luck with the earnings. Haven't heard of Yahoo Voices, have you a link so I can go and have a look. Please

I have two I can think of. The first is to get married. We're planning to have our wedding in the fall, in the beginning somewhere. But it's not sure. So my plan is kind of to plan the whole wedding, because definitely we have no money for a professional wedding planners. Ah, there are so many things to do! I'd better start looking for companies for services and finalise my vision of the wedding! I only have a clue about invitation, flower and decor... but I have to find a dress, finalise the guest list, decide on hair and makeup, find good music for the ceremony, make a song list for the reception, (I don't want a band), design seat cards decide what kind of photos I'd like... agh... of course my fiancé is going to help, but I think I'm going to do more in the designing part... Annnnd I wanna make my first proper scrapbook. I've been planning to start scrapbooking, but kind of never got to do that. Until now. I wanna make one for my fiancé for our first anniversary (I mean, not a wedding anniversary, of course, but the anniversary of us being together), about our first year together. Oh, and I have the third one! Get my university BA degree! :)

Love your goals and hope that they all come together, you must keep us all up to date with how you are getting on with them. May your married life be as happy as mine.... very very very happy
