I have some general organizational resolutions for my home and work, but as to the ones that pertain to this endeavour, they are as follows:
1) Post more regularly. I've been averaging about one post a week, and my goal is to bring it to three a week. At the same time, I would like to upload one or two youtube videos a week.
2) Spend less per month on beauty items. I went way over budget in 2012, partly due to my own magpie inclinations, but also because I wanted to provide a lot of content for this blog. In reality, I didn't even get a chance to write about half the items I purchased (see resolution 1). I'm keeping a little notebook account of all the beauty items I buy, and I'm not allowing myself to exceed more than a certain amount per month (with May having triple the limit due to The Makeup Show). If I don't reach the limit in one month, I am allowing myself to carry it over into the next month.
3) Take more chances with different types of posts. At this point I'm fairly comfortable with the review format I have worked out, but I would like to expand and experiment this year.
Nothing too crazy, and that's the key to keeping to resolutions. Otherwise, it's setting yourself up for failure.
One of the types of post I'd like to do is a Look Back at 2012 series. Sort of like the Best of the Year posts that everyone has done (some absolutely brilliantly), but with one item or theme per post. Part of the appeal for me about this kind of series is that it will afford me the opportunity to discuss some items I didn't have a chance to write about at the time. Also, sometimes a product doesn't strike you as being particularly amazing until you have the clarity of time and greater context.
I hope that my plans for 2013 will add some fun and value to your lives, and I look forward to spending some more time with y'all!
