New year's resolutions

Much to the constant despair of Kate Donovan, my fabulous deputy editor and RJ’s resident online guru, I am terrible at blogging regularly. I blame the fact that I was a generation that grew up without the pervading presence of the internet (yes, I realise I’m showing my age with that statement). Blogging always feels like it’s the preserve of people with emotional incontinence not a legimate form of journalism.

However, I realise that these views are somewhat last century, and also I can’t take the constant guilt trips I get from Kate on a bi-weekly basis, so I am going to make a real effort to blog more this year (let’s see how long that lasts, shall we?).

While we’re on the subject of new year’s resolutions I thought I’d suggest one for you. Why not make this the year you enter the UK Jewellery Awards?

There are a few new categories this year, it’s a really great way to see just how well you’re doing as a business and the actual night itself is one hell of a great time. It’s so easy to do. All you have to do is go to, pick your categories to enter and fill in the forms.

One of the new awards this year is the Outstanding contribution award, which we want you to nominate people for. So please send any suggestions along with reasons why to It doesn’t have to be someone obvious, we’re looking for anyone you think has benefitted the industry this year.

Until next week when I resolve to blog about all the delights of SIHH…Fingers crossed.
