New Years Resolutions 2012

Every year on the 31st of December I'll write down exactly what I want to do for the next year. So to begin the New Year in I thought I'd get a list together for things I want to accomplish for this site in 2012. I hope everyone had a happy new year!

  • Go to pattaya for a few weeks. I havn't been down to sin city for quite some time now and have the itch. Chiang Mai nightlife is pretty boring compared to Pattaya so I hope to go there soon and create a mongers guide to Pattaya. I know Pattaya pretty well but things are always changing and new places opening so I'll need some local help if anyone wants to come or meet me there?
  • Setup a coyote party. I met a guy the other that runs a coyote service here in Chiang Mai he says they do heaps of private parties. Sounds awesome to me and actually really cheap so I think for the next monger party I'll probably set it up and host at a friends place.
  • Right now people come to the site yes because it reads like a crap version of Thailands US weekly magazine here you'll find stories and information about Thailand you won't find anywhere else. But I'm not the worlds best writer so I thought maybe adding someone to the contributors would help. Hopefully by mid year i'll find someone who wants to help write for this blog add another perspective. If your interested please contact me. If you think that's a bad idea please let me know in the comments section below.
  • The most fun comments we have on this website is from Thai people. So what I thought would be a good idea is to get guest posts not from other bloggers in the farang community but from bloggers from the Thai community. This will help get more Thai people to the blog. These posts will all be in Thai language but read similar to the stories we already have here. I know there are plenty of guys come here can read Thai so these should be some interesting reads you can practice your Thai. For those who can't read Thai the translator will kind of work but maybe something for you to aspire to.
  • In terms of traffic I'd love to see 5000 people a day by the end of the year, I'm pretty sure that target will be met before the end of the year but all depends if I can find someone reliable to help me write stories.
  • For the NewThaiVisa.com website I am hoping to have 2000 registered users by the end of the year. This should help the blog grow as well but can't be sure how well it will be received.
  • I'd like to do a story about 30 girls in 30 days. Where I have sex with a different girl every day for 30 days. Doesn't seem too difficult a challenge but since I have to provide proof and put the pictures up I have my reputation on the line and will have to make sure they are all pretty good looking but this is Thailand so that's not much of a challenge either. I'll need to think more about this one if you have any ideas to make it more difficult for me let me know.
  • Create a logo. The blog is really missing a logo something to identify the site. I've been really lazy getting this done so I hope to have something cool this year. I just can't picture yet what a good logo for the blog would be like, any ideas?
  • For the Thai girl of the week you already saw me expand it by adding the Thai song of the week. I think it would be cool to add more to this. In the coming weeks i'll also be including the hotel of the week, destination of the week, and movie of the week. This should make the newsletter more interesting and honestly more fun for me.

Well that's all I can think of right now, if you have any suggestions to what you'd like to see in this blog for the next year please leave a comment below.

    Chris -Swasdee Pi Mai dude!

    may I suggest? a separate section password protected for the more ‘spicy’ parts of the blog (bit like Addicts ‘advanced’ member section) then there would be no comeback from anyone offended and as people would have to ask to go into that section they can’t complain later?. The only other thought I had was the ‘monger’ parties you were talking about sometime ago? OR just meeting up occasionally in a ‘hotspot’?

      I like the idea of a private area to the blog I’m just not sure what to put in it yet. If that doesn’t happen this year It will definately happen next year. There will be a meet up soon so keep posted.

        I was only thinking things more ‘interesting’ could go in there 😉 so if you write about your 30 women in 30 days you won’t get flamed – looking forward to reading that by the way!

        • Chris January 3, 2012 at 7:24 am #

          I think I know we’re your going with that. Still unsure if I should go that route or not, the way I market my blog would be crippled if I added such an area so I may have to wait till 2013.

          Hi Chris

          I’d actually be very interested in helping you with your blog. I’ve been looking for an incentive to try out serious blogging or article writing, and this sounds like it could be perfect. I’ve had aspirations as a writer for a long time, so my enthusiasm is assured. What do you think?

        • Chris January 13, 2012 at 6:23 am #

          Sounds great Simon, in the next few months i’ll put up a post for someone to help me out I just have a few things to sort out first.

    If 30 girls in 30 days is too easy do one on training a complete newbie to Thailand or English teacher in 1 or 2 weeks the skills to get 30 girls in 30 days and follow his success/failures.

    • Chris January 8, 2012 at 2:34 pm #

      That’s a good idea, though I should probably do it first to show it can be done.
