Welcome To Mauigirl Country.

As long as no one thinks it's like "Scarborough Country." Hmmm, maybe this isn't the best slogan...How about:

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Mauigirl.

Thanks to Freida Bee for posting this cool "slogan generator" on her blog - go check it out and help her pick her best slogan! I could keep doing this all day...

But I digress.

It is New Year's Day and it is obligatory to have the look back on the previous year and perhaps make a few resolutions. I know, I know, we always break them, but if you don't have them in the first place you have nothing to regret at the end of the next year, and that would be boring.

I just want to say thanks to all the great blogfriends I've met during the past year - thanks for all your support and encouragement and friendship throughout the year. I've loved meeting all of you in cyberspace and reading all of your wonderful blogs.

I've only been doing this since September of 2006 and didn't really find my niche until later on, so this has all been quite a great learning experience!

I loved participating in NaBloPoMo and living up to the challenge of posting something every single day.

I hope to be able to keep up a frequent pace in the upcoming year and to post more frequently on Medicana and perhaps finally post at least another post on my travel blog!

OK, I guess those are two resolutions right there.

The others include the usual: losing weight, cooking dinner at home more often (which will result in losing weight), going back to yoga (I was really doing it faithfully once a week a couple of years ago and then just stopped), and yes, trying to get to work earlier. I mean, 10:15 is really pushing the envelope.

And last but definitely not least, I want to make more effort in some of the community activities I'm involved in, including historic preservation and my local park conservancy - and by actually producing four quarterly newsletters for my neighborhood association in 2008.

(The quarterly newsletter, of which I am editor, has been languishing as more of a "thirdly" newsletter the last two years, due to my usual procrastination. If "thirdly" is a word.)

Some of these resolutions will be more achievable than others!

Best wishes for a great 2008 to you all! And may all your resolutions come true!

Happy New Year!

Your plan sounds similar to mine. I hope you're successful!

Freida Bee said...

I like the, "I scream, you scream, we all scream for Mauigirl" one.

This year is off to a good start to blog meet you, Mauigirl. Have a wonderful new year!

Fran said...

Happy New Year! I like your slogan!

I typed in 9/11 and got a campaign slogan made for Rudy...

Get More From 9/11

Mauigirl said...

Hi DCup, thanks, let's encourage each other with our resolutions!

Freida Bee, thanks, I kinda like that one too! Have a great New Year!

Fran, thanks! There were a lot of funny ones. You can sit there and click through one after another. It's one of those addictive things! I like the Rudy one! Very appropriate.

Mary Ellen said...

I can't stop laughing at the slogan generator. I typed in "chicken" to see if it would come up with "a chicken in every pot", but instead it came up with this:

Hungry? Why Wait? Grab a Chicken

I think they should work the bugs out of that thing. LOL!

Happy New Year, Mauigirl!

Mary Ellen said...

Ok...this is getting to be fun. I thought I would try the right wing approach and put in "God" and it came up with this..

Promise Her Anything, But Give Her God

Too strange...I'm going to be having fun with that thing for awhile. :-)

Happy New Year Mauigirl!

The Future Was Yesterday said...

I vote for the "I scream, you scream..." slogan.:)

My sole resolution for this year is don't make any resolutions!

I have all year to lie to myself. Why rush it?:)

Mauigirl said...

Mary Ellen, it is a lot of fun, isn't it? Very addictive! Happy New Year!

And Happy New Year to you, too, Larry!

Future, too true. I know I will break my resolutions, at least some of them! (The trying to be to work on time one is probably the first!)

Happy and Hopefully Better new year.

Liz Hinds said...

Happy New year to you and husband and mom!

Does everyone have losing weight as a New Year resolution, do you think? But I have to finish off all my Christmas choccies first ...

TomCat said...

Make Tomcat Yours.

Mauigirl said...

Friend #2, you'll be amazed to know I finished it last night and just need to proofread it!

Liz, thanks, will pass on your good wishes! Same to you and yours! And yes, I think about 90% of people have losing weight as a resolution! I'm not really starting till Monday though!

"Make Tomcat Yours" sounds like a great slogan, Tomcat!

Tom Harper said...

I gave up making New Year's resolutions. You can't break a resolution if you didn't make any.

But I do enjoy all the year-in-review stories, lists of words that became trendy and over-used during the year, etc.

Happy New Year Mauigirl.

Mauigirl said...

Thanks Tom! I enjoy those end-of-year things too. I'm always amazed when I look back on events that happened in January or February of the just-passed year and think "OMG, that happened in 2007? I thought it was years ago already!"
