2015 New Year's Resolution for the bloggers

Image
It's the first day of a new year and we are again it's a great time to list down things we accomplished and start targeting our goals for the next 12 months. I'm not going to post "I will lose some weight" as new year's resolution but this post will be concentrated in your career as a blogger.



Why do we need to set goals?
We make mistakes for no reasons, we wanted some changes in our blog like moving to a new domain name, changing layouts, hiring additional workforce as correspondents, and a lot more...the main thing here is what goals we should identify and move towards accomplishing it.

Our new pre-lit Christmas tree 2014

Image
We've ordered the tree online. It's almost Christmas and we're going to set it up. Here are some tips I've learned:

1. Be careful in opening the box. Yes, do not just cut and open it. Since this is a pre-lit, wires might be loosen.
2. Read the manual. There is a piece of paper on how to assemble it. Follow what is written.
3. Check the stand, it should be "X" and lay it flat on the surface.
4. Slowly check the other components of the tree. Each piece has their own numbers (for pre-lit), assemble the tree first and then check out the section of lights it should be either color coded or numbered.
5. Put it together and test the lights after bending the rest of the branches.
6. Start decorating. There is no right / or wrong in decorating your Christmas tree. I didn't follow the "red" motif that was included on the package instead I combined all decors we have at home.

Tadah, the finished product!
Merry Christmas....next is gift wrapping. One of the most cr…
