Blogging: New Year Resolutions

It's December 30th, and we're finally reaching the end of the year. I have to say that this year has been quite hectic, at some points I didn't even know what to expect next. However, that didn't stop me. I made it through this year, and there's a lot to look back on.

2013 holds quite a lot for me, as this is the year I started running this blog. I'm up to almost 50 posts, and it seems pretty crazy thinking that I started blogging just a couple of months ago. I have to admit that I've come very far, but I want to take it even further. To do that I'll need the help of my readers.

I just have a few New Year Resolutions for my blog and myself; things that I wasn't able to accomplish this year that I can in the future.

  • Acquire a more diverse audience so my writing can reach large amounts of people.
  • Improve myself as a writer and a blogger.
  • Watch more anime! (Why wouldn't I?)
  • Possibly finish my light novel.
  • Become more involved in the anime community.
  • Acquire the software/technology to begin recording gameplay footage, visual novels, etc.
  • Start up my YouTube channel and get things rolling. 
  • Add something new and unique to my blog.
That's pretty much the master list of things I'd like to accomplish in 2014. Most of them I'm sure I can at least start, but perfecting is a different story.

 The most challenging I think is adding something new and unique. Right now I focus on Japanese music spotlights, a midst writing editorials on anime. I also throw in a few reviews every now and then, but everyone can do things like that. The goal of my blog is to be unique. So I need to find something that not everyone else does, but still something that would be interesting to others. If anyone has any ideas on this matter please let me know!

Also I need your help. Yes, my readers. If you can offer any constructive criticism that may be beneficial, please do so.

I think that pretty much wraps this up. You can look forward to more anime editorials, gaming, news updates, visual novels, and more in the future. Like it's namesake, Shooting Star Dreamer is shooting for the stars! Thank you for staying with me for this long, and please continue to do so.

Have a happy new year!
