New Year's Resolutions For the Blog - 10 Days Late

New Year's came and went. I meant to make resolutions for this blog, but never got around to it. Whoops.

Well, better late than never I always say.

1. Less Trade Posts/More Real Posts
This blog started out with random analysis and great names, but has turned into 85% trade posts and 15% phoning it in. I'm busy, but not so busy that my blog has to be a snoozefest. I'm at least going to make the Hall of Fame appear more regularly (maybe once a week nominees or something), but I'll hopefully bring some other cool stuff in too.

2. Collect 500 McGriffs and finish my 1989 and 1992 sets
I think this is doable, as it's something like 150 McGriffs to go, 100 89's (most of which are on their way) to go and then a few hundred 92's to go. I've never finished anything in my short time as a card blog - it's time to make that happen!

3. Get pictures of all of my McGriff cards posted by next New Year's
A while back I said that I'd try to do this, but I kind of fell way behind and now only post Freds when I get them in trades. I figure that needs to change. At least a Fred post a week or maybe a Fred a day is the way I need to go - that way I will eventually catch up to all of the Freds I have and it'll be easier to post them when I get them. Huzzah!

4. Try to sell some cards
There are some cards that neither I nor bloggers want. Whether beckett, ebay, or checkoutmycards, I think I'm going to venture into card sales. Ebay seems like a good spot for now, as they now offer five free listings every thirty days. Not too shabby sirs.

I guess that's it for now - all achievable and hopefully shall be achieved. I'd say 2 happens, 3 probably happens, and 1 and 4 are given the old college try. Whether I kick ass or fail miserably, I hope it'll be a nice ride for all of you readers out there. Enjoy the 2010 version of the GSNHOF!


  1. Good luck with the're making yours when most people have already dropped the ones they made on the 1st! least I...still like to read a trade post now and again.

  2. Thanks man! And they will still go up (trade posts), as I do like them and I like thanking people. I just want to even out the content a little bit - sometimes this blog feels like the great trade post hall of fame.
