Happy New Year, Brew City.

Social Circle: What are your New Year's resolutions?

Welcome to a weekly segment called "Social Circle." It's truly a group effort between readers, social networkers and the editors. Every Monday, we ask a question via Facebook and Twitter and then post the responses from our Facebook "likers" and Twitter followers in this column. Well-known Milwaukee movers and shakers will contribute, too.

We make 'em, often we break 'em, but resolutions are as much a part of the New Year as confetti in your champagne. So here we go, one more year of big plans to change our lives for the better.

Here's a list of resolutions submitted by members of the Social Circle, but we want to hear what you have in store for 2012, which you can tell us via the Talkback feature. More exercise? A new line of work? Less worry?

Whatever it is, believes in your ability to achieve your goals and wishes you a safe, healthy, very happy New Year. Cheers, Milwaukee.
