Happy New Year!

Well, it's been over a week since I last posted anything, so I've decided that being as it's a new month, February will also see a new me and I'm going to start by celebrating my new year all over again, wiping January out of my memory bank.
February's tasks that I've set for myself to complete are:-
1) Read 4 out of the BBC Top 100 Reads.
2) Rebook my balloon flight
3) Spend at least 1 hour per week learning to play chess
4) Spend at least 1 hour per week learning French
5) Write 10,000 words towards my novel
6) Write to TV companies to pitch a show based on my blog
7) Write to magazines/newspapers to pitch an idea on a column based around my blog
8) Start on my You Tube task
Loads of stuff planned for this month, to hopefully get me motivated and get me working towards adding some more ticks to my list this year. I'll keep you all posted on how I'm getting on!

Hey! I started over to since Chinese New Year was only this week. So, it's a new year. LOL I love what you have to do this week. Funny you said that about the show...I'm trying to talk to a friend about doing something here in the states also... I haven't figured out yet how to get the column as you see that is a goal also so let me know what you come up with...

Well great minds must think alike and PS Happy New Year! The TV show will be very tricky as a) I haven't got a clue who to send it to and b) I haven't got a clue what to write in my introduction letter - will let you know how I progress with that!

How about asking Andy Whittaker at Radio Nottingham for advice on this?

Michelle said...

That's quite a hefty list of goals for February, good luck! And Happy New Year!

On our shows, we can be co-hosts and report from different countries!

Bikerted - might just do that - infact I have a contact at BBC TV for Nottingham, so might have to pick his brains!
Michelle - yep sure is - don't know if I've over stretched myself this month but felt I had to compensate for doing very little in January!
Tami - that would be a great idea! We could have special guest stars and everything!

Yeay!! Looks like you are getting your mojo back!! I don't know why you can't leave comments on my page... I think it's whatever way I set up my page... I've changed things around on it now so hopefully you'll be able to comment now!!
