So, it seems that everywhere I turn people are talking about their New Year's resolutions. I think of resolutions as ideas that (sometimes) fail. Losing weight. Exercising more. Eliminating debt. Good ideas. Noble ideas. But often what one has in mind and what they write down are two different things and then when they only lose two pounds instead of the 20 or knock out some bills but not all of it, they could be disappointed.
I, therefore, will not be resolving anything. I do have some ideas that I'd like to implement this upcoming year. In no particular order:
- Post auction house catalogs the same week that I receive them.
- Read more 'new' blogs. I've fallen into a comfort zone on what I read.
- Leave at least a comment a day on posts that I read. I think that blog writers like that sort of feedback. I know I do.
- Organize my card collection. Know what I have and what I want.
- Get more of what I want.
- Try not to buy packs of cards.
- Send out a few Through The Mail attempts.
- Pare down the boxes of cards that I have.
They sound like resolutions. They aren't. Trust me. I've done this a few times.
No, I'm probably not going to be altering my blog or blogging style greatly. I'll still look at auction house catalogs. I'll talk about a book or two that I've read. I'll post about cards I like. I'll show off my cheap Hall of Fame relic cards. I might talk about my kids.
If you want something wacky, crazy, edgy or truly bizarre, head elsewhere. If you tolerate or even slightly enjoy my ramblings, stick around. It will be smooth sailing.
