We are exactly in the middle of those days where so many of us take New Year resolutions, things that we will start doing, be more consistent at and also those things we want to avoid going into the New Year. Last week, I discussed the few changes that I will make related to my long and short technology stock picks. There are many other financial and investing goals that I will attempt to do, mostly trying to be smarter with my money and my spending which will hopefully translate into more savings.

In terms of financial decisions, finding some money to be saved in insurance and other recurring expenses will probably be the best way to get it done. If I can find a $100 per month for example and increase my automatic savings by that amount, it will end up making a very significant difference.

From an investment perspective, I am hoping to invest significant amounts into:

The best investment I have made in my life
-Some longer term speculative picks… Zynga (ZNGA) is one possibility, LinkedIn (LNKD) at the right price, another option that I will discuss later this week and obviously some Facebook stock if it comes out anywhere close to a decent valuation.

From a blogging perspective, I hope the quality of posts on this blog will continue to increase so that it can hopefully keep up the growth. These days, the blog has between 500 and 1000 readers on almost every day, and I’m hoping that all days will be over 1000 by this time next year. Again, I appreciate all of your feedback in helping me making this blog more interesting and relevant.

And more than anything else, more time with my family – I think we all realize more and more over the years how valuable our close friends and family truly are and I am going to be focusing on the 20/80 principle more than ever before. Why? Because that is what will help me get more results in every aspect while also managing to get more free time to spend with my loved ones.

I would love to hear about your 2012 resolutions and objectives, thanks for being part of this growing community.

    If it is not too much to ask… How do you earn money off your website? Just via advertising?
