I'm sure no one noticed or even cares, but I've been on a bit of a social media fast in the last little while. Not a complete fast, since I did check in on Facebook and read a few articles from Digg and my Google Reader. But I've resisted posting to my blog, updating my Facebook and Twitter statuses and significantly limited my media consumption. My last Facebook update and the last time I even looked at Twitter was 11 days ago.
It's that time of year again and I love it. I've always enjoyed writing my New Years resolutions. The first step in making something happen is to write it down and say it out loud.
1. Learn to say 'No'
I took on way too much work in 2008 and 2009. While I did everything in my power to try to keep up, it would have been better for myself, my family and my clients if I scaled it back a notch. I'll to try and limit my self to preferably one, possibly three maximum projects at any given time from now on.
I was quite the prolific blogger a couple of years ago. I had about a dozen different blogs covering different niche topics. I was writing at least a post a day. Until I awoke one morning to find that all my blogs were down. I never was able to recover them. That's a long, sad story I won't get into now.
