Hi there! I know it’s been a while since I blogged. I have been really busy and all … it’s really easy to cover my laziness by saying just how busy I was … xD
And here I was … truly busy! Now that 2014 is almost out of the way, it’s time to make some new year resolutions which I might not be following anyway … none of us do … or do we? 😀
Alright, I cannot say that these are actual resolutions, I don’t need/want to change my lifestyle … so instead of saying “resolution”, I’ll say “commitment” and stick to them or die trying … ;D
You know, over the past 1.5 years of dancing, I never lost passion for lindy hop and now it is time I do something great for my own passion! So here are my 7 commitments for lindy hop and this blog for 2015:
1. Blog more often.
Now in terms of internet marketing, those “gurus” keep telling their readers to blog every single day! Now I am afraid that I would run out of ideas if I blogged every single day and I cannot dance every night … I remember days when I could … now time changed, I am busier with business and I don’t want to blog about the same venue/event several times a month, that’s why I like events that happen once a month with live band such as Swing at Charlie’s!
2. Fix directory.
About a year ago, I launched classes directory which was a massive failure … I suppose I can chew less than I bite sometimes … I targeted the whole England while I should have targeted Hertfordshire and London in the beginning. Now I have no idea about directory yet but I know I will be adding it back … or something equally amazing!
3. Dance more.
This goes without saying. I will try to do even more camps and dance more around England rather than just London. You know, London is great, but I want to socialise with other lindy hoppers who are from all over the UK. I will still be dancing in London but if I want to claim national popularity, I need to be known everywhere in the UK, not just London … sorry, that’s ego speaking … 😀
4. Socialise more.
Similarly to a previous commitment, I will be socialising with more people and in wider locations than just London. I will be adding more people on Facebook and following more on Twitter. You know, every friend on Facebook and every fan on Twitter is a potential prospect, regular reader of this blog … XD
5. Smile more.
Last time I danced, at Xmas Extravaganza (sorry, I did not blog about it), I surely smiled more than other times. It made me feel more excited. I wish there was a workshop for smiling … ;D
6. Take private lessons.
It goes without saying that private lessons with industry experts (sorry, international teachers 😀 ) help massively and they are so much better than classes or workshops as teachers cannot provide 1-to-1 teaching in workshops.
7. Take more selfies with important people
The last but not least … it’s quite self-explanatory and yes, that’s another commitment that comes from my ego. It wouldn’t surprise me if I stuck to this commitment through out the year … ;D
OK, that’s it. I have other things in mind but I’ll keep them for myself. What are your new year resolutions?
