I keep saying I’m going to write more, and I have been – just not here. I have a journal I got a couple of years ago from Someone Very Special to me, and the less I sleep lately, the more I write. (My overarching novel has been in process for over 6 years now, in bits and pieces, but mostly out of the dream world. Maybe some day I’ll share the basis for it, but it’s definitely not time to do that yet).
I read that WordPress is doing a Post A Week in 2011, and I think that’s more my style. I’d love to do Post A Day, but I don’t think I’m quite there yet. At least, via Post A Week, it’ll be better than no promise at all.
So, my promise is that at least once every week (Sunday-Saturday) I will have new posts.
Why is this important? Many reasons.
1. I’m participating in the 3six5 this year. I am absolutely thrilled and honored to be a part of it. It’s SUCH a great concept. (My day is March 29!)
2. I have some great blog ideas that I’d like to talk about – reviewing my new phone Kaylee (Samsung Continuum on Verizon, why I chose it over the Fascinate, my 6 month ordeal doing that); reviewing my absolute love for soccer/futbol; more music posts than you can shake a stick at; the ordeals of going back to college for the first time in 5 years; reviews for my upcoming trips… etc. This at least gives me a better goal.
3. That whole taking trips thing. Provided I can find work for it, @NABShow in April in Las Vegas (year 2! year 1 was awesome! I love it. I really do. I love going to trade shows. I learn so much, network more.. etc. Figured out my total costs for the show are under $800… which sure isn’t bad!) My trip to Chicago in May! I am seeing a friend who I haven’t seen in.. omg, almost 10 years (really Jen? 2002?) I’m finally seeing a Cubs game after being a fan since I was like 8 (there’s a great story here too)… visiting the Museum of Science and Industry for two days, which I am beyond excited about after being an entrant in Month at the Museum last year.
4. Going back to school. Nuff said. The more productive and creative I am there, the more it will manifest itself everywhere else.
So.. here’s my hopes for my year. And I hope I get more readers. And more feedback. The more I have feedback, the more I have to talk about.
.. if you know me, that may or may not be a good thing.
