Happy New Year everyone! While many of you might be making New Year's resolutions like working out more, or whatever normal people that actually have a life do, I have been making some New Year's resolutions about Blogging, and what I plan for J and J Productions in the future. Below I have different topics and then I elaborate on them.
Return of the Podcast: Last year I made a few podcast episodes with some of my cyber-friends/collaborators, and even though the podcasts were an epic fail in terms of success on the blog, they were so much fun to make that I have to make more! Unfortunately, I doubt that I will be able to bring back the podcast until my summer break after the spring semester since I will not be taking summer class. My plan for the podcast is to be more focused on a certain topic like anime, The Walking Dead, Sherlock, etc, and it will feature more than one guest if possible. Also, they will hopefully be shorter, and therefore easier to make and listen to. Below are the links to my previous podcasts if you want to listen to them.Podcast #3
Post Everyday: My number one goal of last year was to continue posting day, and despite college taking up the majority of my time, I not only managed to post everyday, my posts were higher in quality (hopefully that is what you think as well) and had more variety. I believe I only missed one day all year, and that was when I was in the hospital because of an unexpected illness. God willing, I will be able to continue to post everyday through 2014.
Actually Finish Lists: Before the end of the year, I started a list of my favorite television shows and Top 10 Movie Battle scenes, and neither has been posted. That is mostly because both lists have had some drastic changes, especially the TV Shows list because I have a lot of great TV since starting the list. Also, my Top 100 Movies list needs a major overhaul.
More Anime Reviews: Anime is another somewhat unpopular topic on J and J Productions since it is such a niche fandom. Despite this, I became a fan of several shows and films over the course of last year and I plan to continue watching even more next year. Since anime series are short, I will hopefully have reviews of movies as well as series throughout the year. Maybe I will post one every other week for the few Otakus that are interested in reading them. However, if more people are interested, I will surely post even more.
Seeing More Movies in Theaters: This was one of my goals last year and I actually managed to accomplish it! Over the course of last year, I went to see seven movies in the theater, and while that does not sound like a lot by most people's standards, it was a lot for me considering my low amount of money.
Continue Commenting: Despite college, I have been able to continue to comment on other blogs, or at least I try my best. Basically, I will comment on most blogs that I follow that post about something that I am interested in. Also I need to try to spot mentioning anime on blogs that do not care anything about the topic because I notice way too many similarities between anime and modern movies now.
Watch The Godfather and Other "Classics": Yes, I have yet to see the Godfather, but I plan to watch the first two films. However, I did manage to watch other "classics" such as Citizen Kane, the Shawshank Redemption, and 2001: A Space Odyssey which I will post my reviews for at some point.
Do you have any blogging resolutions for the year? Please comment below and let me know what you think of mine.
Also I forgot to give a shout out in my 1000th post to the guest authors that helped J and J Productions reach that number. Thanks Jamie, Jordan, JT, Rebecca, and Shena Tokala for the guests posts!
Now I leave you with a humorous panel from my friend's favorite comic strip.
