New Year’s Resolutions (2015)

New Year’s Resolutions (2015)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic 2015 so far and it goes on to be a great year for you all.

It’s the ninth day of the 2015 so I've had a lot of time to think about this blog post. In the past I haven’t really set myself any proper New Year’s Resolutions. Perhaps it’s because I never thought I would be able to achieve them with much success or if I did set some they would not be very meaningful.

This year is going to be different. I’m going to give it a go. So here are my resolutions for 2015. What are yours?

Developing ‘Jake Borrett’s Writing Blog’
Without your continual brilliant support ‘Jake Borrett’s Writing Blog’ would not really exist. The blog has been running since Friday 28th February 2014 and so far it is had nearly 20,000 views, which is amazing. This is down to you.

With this in mind it is only right for the blog to continually improve. So one of my resolutions this year is to make the blog a more attractive and interactive place to visit. This will mean more features more videos will be found here. I guess I have been put off making videos for confidence issues but don’t worry there will be more in the upcoming months. There may even be a few surprises along the way.

So make sure you stay in touch.

Raising Tons of Awareness
One of the main reasons for setting up this blog is to raise tons of awareness. I wish one day many people will familiar with or have a greater understanding of what Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Dyspraxia are and how they affect people in everyday life. You or someone close to you may be suffering from any of these conditions. I want to show you may support by raising awareness across the web.  

Asides from the blog, I will be trying get more involved with the many of the amazing charities and foundations helping thousands of people every day. They may be helping you this very moment. The volunteers are doing a fantastic job so I would to thank them in some way.

Skydiving in the Clouds  
Now I have been saying this for many years that I would like to a tandem skydive. It started in 2009 when my dad completed a tandem skydive for Multiple Sclerosis. Even though he said he wouldn’t do it again, he also said it was an unforgettable experience. It was a wonderful thing he did for charity. Hopefully this year I will have the courage to do a tandem skydive of my own. You may even see a video of it.

Other Bits and Bobs
There are hundreds of New Year’s Resolutions to choose from. You could learn to play an instrument, learn to drive, take part in a flash mob or travel to Japan. Ultimately you should do things that make you happy. So I am going to do one thing every day that makes me smile.


Thank you for reading the first blog post of 2015. You are brilliant. Lots more content will be published in the near future. Until then have an extra fun weekend and good luck with your own resolutions.


  1. What is everyone's New Year's Resolutions for 2015?

  2. Great resolutions Jake! I think as a writer my main focus is to make time for writing more stuff but making sure what i write has value and i'm not just doing so for the sake of it . As someone who blogs regularly for different businesses I so regularly find myself hitting the proverbial brick wall and wondering whether what I’m going to write something that is A) going to make sense and B) going to be useful/interesting particularly after creating pieces for over a year. I’ve found a content calendar helps, knowing what I want to write about and when helps me to maintain focus!

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comment Maria. Content calendars sounds like a great idea for writing. I hope your blogs go well and you have a fantastic weekend.
