So anyway, I didn't have any new year's resolutions (pause of about ten minutes while I double check that I didn't post any here - whew, safe!), but I have some plans that I really want to follow through on. What better way to commit than to announce them in public? You guys can all hassle me if I cop out.
In no particular order:
1) NaBloPoMo! Okay, I stumbled across it on someone else's blog, then I looked it up partially because I was curious about whether it's a Doctor Who in-joke (although I never did find out).
Basically, you post on your blog every day for a month. It can be any month, although if you do it in November you get a chance to win awesome prizes! It seems like it might be fun, I hope it will lead to less editing and more exposition of self and interesting thoughts. Then again, it could end up being mostly stories about rude customers and weird memes.
I bet you guys can't wait to find out.
2) Getting creative with ways to save money... As you guys may or may not know, Ross and I are going to be moving to Iceland at the end of the year, and we'd like to be able to put a deposit on a house, therefore we are in mega savings mode.
Part one: I'm going to start selling stuff on eBay. I talk about it all the time, but I really need to do it! I have quite a few neat op shop finds that I should be able to make a profit on. If it works out, maybe I'll make a habit of scouring the high street for awesome stuff and selling it on!
Part two: I'm going to set up an online store on etsy.com, and sell some exciting homemade things! I wouldn't mind some input on this one, so if anyone has any amazing ideas they'd like to share for a) what I should call my brand, and b) what kind of stuff I should make, let me know! There'll be much gratitude from me and possibly some knitted toys named after you. How could you resist?
Whoa, I felt like I had lots of stuff to resolve, but I think that's it. Make more money, and write more stuff. Maybe make money from writing stuff? That one is not yet a resolution, but a let's wait and see...
I think that's about it - except wanna look at a cute comic about a catnap?
