May it be a Blogging 2014 and the dreaded resolutions!

As 2013 nears to an end it’s also time for some New Year’s resolutions (I can hear you groan…).

I hardly need to work hard at coming up with my RL resolutions as I seem to stick to the same ones year after year, decade after decade which makes me think that they might not work.

This year I shall focus on my plans for the blog and leave blogging reflection on 2013 for my blogiversary which is coming up very soon.

resolutions for 2014

Here are some resolutions/plans/aims for the upcoming year for IWantToBeaPinUp:

Update my blogroll list on the right

I’ve been meaning to do this for some time, especially that there are so many amazing new blogs that deserve to be included.

Clean up old posts

Seeing that I’ve somehow managed to produced almost 600 posts this is going to be one heck of a RA thunder thighs mammoth task, but I want to have them in good condition on the off-chance someone might come across an old post and find it useful/amusing/annoying.

I need to go back, remove inactive links, upload photos and such, but perhaps I’ll leave that for the summer when I have more time to fiddle with stuff.

Complete the series of interviews with RA bloggers

I’ve had an idea to pick the brains (not physically mind…) of fellow RA bloggers who specialise in specific fields.

Although I had initially aimed to have this project completed in autumn, let’s shoot for spring.

By the way, a huge thanks to those who agreed to participate a few months ago, I didn’t manage to pull this off then, but I’ll be knocking on your email door again soon.

Come back to regular/scheduled posting

Although I very much doubt I’ll be able to swing daily posts, but I’d like to come back to Arty Farty Fridays.

I know it wasn’t everyones cup of tea, but I think it found a  nice little group of art enthusiasts and that inspired me to watch documentaries and try to come up with something interesting every week.

Supporting fellow Armitage Admirers

Whether it be supporting fellow bloggers, organising RA events, spreading the word etc.

Plan for FanstRAvaganza 5

I haven’t heard anything about the fifth edition of our annual RA celebration, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed and just in case I need to start storing those cream-of-the-crop ideas so I don’t have to panic come March that the RA ideas pantry is very bare.

RA b&w1

From non-blog but very much RA related resolutions:

Attend a red carpet event and watch RA work his magic

This one’s a big dream of mine and I feel like the last instalment of The Hobbit may also be the last chance in a while to experience the exhilaration a fan/admirer/enthusiast/well-wisher can feel being part of something so cool.

It really is out of my hands, if Sir PJ brings the première to London this December I’ll do my best to be there, wearing my thermo undies and being an absolute embarrassment to those around me.

Hey, a girl can dream, right?

What are your resolution, both RA and RL related?

  1. Good luck with all the blogging- long may your creative muse inspire you, Agzy! I look forward to many, many more amusing, delightful, interesting posts from you. The red carpet wish- you bet. Make it happen!

    • Make it happen indeed! I can only do so much and usually we get info regarding the European premiere a bit too late, when I’ve already made plans, bought tickets, booked hotels.
      I’m also a tad worried that even if I made it to the red carpet event I’d be one of those unfortunate people who was standing on the opposite side and never got to see Richard, but let’s cross that bridge when we get there 😉
      Thanks so much for the wishes, I intend to go strong while it’s still fun and I’m not planning on hanging up my blogging shoes any time soon!

      • Psst- don’t tell anyone, but I’m keeping my ear to the ground in case Wellington scores another premiere next year- not that long a hop from me to KiwiLand! I think it would be an absolutely fitting finale if Wellington rounded it all off- I’ll be mad if the Kiwi guys don’t get included for the next go round at any rate.

        • Yes, excluding Wellington would be strange. I have to dig up the LOTR premieres as they seem to be imitating that pattern especially seeing it worked last time around. I can only hope that there will be something in London, hopefully not the big premiere as that takes place a few weeks before the movie is released and I would probably miss that too.

  2. Lubię Twoje Arty Farty Fridays prawie tak samo jak Guyday Friday 🙂
    Byłoby miło spotkać sie wami a może nawet ujrzeć w przelocie Ryśka …zobaczymy, może w tym Nowym Roku się uda . W kazdym razie liczę na twoje wspólne zdjęcie z Ryszardem!

    • Kochana wspólne zdjęcie to ja i w photoshopie mogę zrobić, ja chcę wiedzieć czym skubaniec pachne 😉
      W każdym razie mamy rok by zrobić jakieś czary mary i może uda się tak wszystko synchronizować by dzielić przestrzeń z Ryśkiem choć na chwilę.

  3. Re red carpet event, we should all organize a trip to London for There and Back Again, make a stand there and make sure we get the actors and Peter Jackson on our side of the carpet … just saying 😉

  4. That’s a lot of blogging resolutions, Agzy. I shall take you as my model and try and do a bit of tidying up myself…
    As for the red carpet dream – I am counting on you, my dear. And even more on you embarrassing yourself (so that I don’t have to… :-P) I’ll hopefully be there, and we’ll meet up for the big one!
    All the best for 2014!!!

    • I just had the perfect end to 2013 as Postman Pat brought me an envelope from an adorable German lady filled with delicious RA goodies! You wouldn’t know anything about that?
      The whole set is going straight on the kitchen radiator which has transformed into the RA wall of admiration 😉
      Have a wonderful 2014, I hope we meet up for the ultimate fangirling experience!

  5. Here’s to a wonderful 2014 full of fun, creativity, insight and transformation!
