For better or worse, whether we keep them or not, we at TheBlaze declare our New Year’s resolutions…

New Years resolutions at TheBlaze“My New Year’s Resolution is to be kinder to others and to myself – I have not been the most forgiving person in 2013 and I need to leave that in the past. Also, I would like to read 20 novels, learn to speak Spanish and overcome my fear of water. Just ’cause those are fun.”– Sarah Rivette, commentary editor

“My New Year’s resolution is to find a cause that I care about and volunteer my time.”– Madeleine Morgenstern, front page editor

“My New Year’s resolution is to follow my heart and trust my instincts.”– Meredith Jessup, TheBlaze Blog editor

“To finally lose that 30 lbs I keep resolving to lose and to keep my priorities in line and balanced throughout 2014.”– Billy Hallowell, faith editor

“I don’t know if I’m truly ready to commit to this one, but I want to not hit the snooze button at all. From a sleep quality standpoint, hitting snooze button for a half hour isn’t that good for you.”– Liz Klimas, science and technology editor

“My New Year’s resolution is to try to start occasionally going to places without my phone. Out to dinner, to the movies… see what it feels like to be less dependent on always checking the damn thing.”– Steve Krakauer, vice president of digital content

“I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. If you want to change something about yourself, why procrastinate to an arbitrary date?”– Oliver Darcy, assistant editor and self-righteous curmudgeon

“Keeping it simple: I really need to read more (especially outside my areas of interest), run more, and eat better. Also, I really need to establish a normal sleep pattern.”– Becket Adams, business editor

“My New Year’s resolution is to show more enthusiasm for the things I enjoy. I’m not fast enough to show when I’m happy.”– Eddie Scarry, TheBlaze Blog editor

“My New Year’s resolution is to spend more time songwriting — maybe self-produce an EP in 2014.”– Jason Howerton, assistant editor

“My New Year’s resolution is to write more for fun — it’s not easy when you’re writing all day for a living, but I would love to publish a book of my own someday.”– Erica Ritz, assistant editor
