We are already past the halfway point of the first month of this year. Just another 23 half months to go and we will be celebrating a new year again. In this post, I want to talk about the things I want to do with the blog and Joe collection this year.
There are 2 main themes that will continue throughout the year. Number 1 being the Impel Trading Cards. We still have a long way to go till we covered the full set, so I’m thinking of speeding things up a bit by covering more cards in one post or maybe posting more frequently if I can find the time to do so. Secondly, I will keep posting random collector’s stuff. New figures and vehicles for my collection, new paraphernalia and so on. I’ve decided to put aside some money each month dedicated to the purchase of new Joe stuff. This way, I hope I can expand my collection and also put some more posts online. I plan on (finally) getting around to unpacking all my Joes that I retrieved from my parent’s house and getting them all sorted. Next will be to list up the ones that are missing, and chasing these down one by one, starting with the 1982 series and working my way through the years (and brighter getting colours).
This year, I would also like to start writing some more. Not just on the blog, but also putting a novel to paper (or screen if you will) that I’ve been writing in my head for a while. It’s Joe related, so I will post something about this soon. As you’re probably aware, English is not my native tongue, so if you’re interested in proofreading and giving me some (hopefully positive) feedback or just some tips, let me know in the comments or via Twitter.
So that’s the plan for 2017, keep on doing what I’ve been doing and putting some more words down to get my writing back on track. I want to take the opportunity to thank you all for reading my posts and giving me feedback and likes. Without us, G.I. Joe probably wouldn’t be alive anymore, so let’s keep on blogging,vlogging and creating podcasts, tweet your heart out and keep posting amazing Instagram shots. We are the Greenshirts!
Happy Collecting and YoJoe!
