New Day, New Blog

And so, we have a brand spankin', shiny new calendar year before us. Now what to do with it?

I almost never make resolutions, but this year I decided to make a few. I think they're reasonable enough, and I've decided to list them publicly, to provide a little pressure so maybe, just maybe, I'll follow through. Here's my list:
  1. Update my father's biography and book information on I have been meaning to do this since I started using Goodreads in 2008, and have not followed through. It's time.
  2. Take a photo every day. Do something with it on a blog (use it as a writing prompt or play with it using photoediting software, that sort of thing). 
  3. Learn to knit something other than a scarf.
  4. Find joy in my new job and be the best damned Director of Communication and Fund Development that I can be.
  5. Run more than I did in 2010. Run another half mary (which race still to be determined).
  6. Write something that I plan to submit to a publisher somewhere. Could be just a small article or short story to an e-zine, but SOMETHING must be submitted. I can't call myself a writer if people aren't rejecting me, right?
  7. Start a new blog on Blogger. (check)
I think that's enough to provide some good goals for the year. Happy New Year, everyone!
