2017 Hobby Resolutions and Goals

Happy New Year everyone!  2017 has finally arrived and that means setting a few goals and resolutions for the coming trip around the Sun.  Here are my Hobby resolutions and goals for 2017.

1) Attend more Events and go for a Podium.  I have always been competitive and while I am one of the consistently better players in my area I am pretty sure I will be suffering "Big Fish, Little Pond" syndrome with this goal.  Nonetheless I want to try to hang around the top tables at some major events and go for a podium.  All that said I want to make sure I have fun and give the best game possible to my opponents.

2) Make more friends in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Scene.  As I attend more events I want to try and meet some of the people I talk to on social media face to face.  I would also like to try and create or join up with some Hobby Sykpe nights as well.  I am usually to timid to jump into one I might see posted on Social media, but if I wish to create more friendships in the scene I will have to overcome this feeling.  We have a great and welcoming community and I doubt I have any need to worry.

3) Grow my Hobby.  If you take a look at my Cover Photo you will see I have created a Facebook Page for my Hobby uploads Called "Odiamh Wargaming" in order to consolidate some of my Hobby picture spam and blog posts as well as create a brand (of sorts) for my Hobby.  My Twitter posts will appear there as well as I hope to reach the goal of 1000 followers this year.  As I begin this new chapter I welcome all positive critiques to be sure I can put out good, quality content.  You will still be able to find my Blog in the usual place as well as posted on TGA.Community.

4) Help my local scene grow.  When The End Times ended I found myself pretty much alone.  Most of my group disappeared due to school, work, or just being done with Warhammer.  I held onto the glowing chuck of The World That Was right along with Sigmar and eventually people began to join me in the Mortal Realms.  Some players are new and some are returning players.  It is time to move forward more then ever and grow the groups I either run or am a part of.  I dream of a healthy Age of Sigmar Scene in my area for competition and Hobbying (maybe even enough interest to have a Grand Tournament in the area).

What are your goals for 2017?  Let me know in the comments.  I wish everyone the best for this coming year and may you hobby go wherever you want it to take you.  Don't forget that I will be bringing you this blog weekly so be sure to comment and let me know if you have any topics you would like me to cover.

Happy Hobbying!
