Happy New Blog Year, Again!

Out with the Old!

And so, just like that, it's 2009. Time to evaluate all of those 2008 New Blog Year Resolutions! and see how I did.

1. Maintain all three blogs throughout 2008! Yeah, I've done that. Although I am not nearly so engaged with the quilt blog anymore, which is a little perverse since it was the most popular of the three. But I love L&TM5K best.

2. Keep the quizzes coming as long as people want to take them! Some might say I've exceeded expectations on this one.

3.Be at least half done with "The Great Movies" by year's end. Well, I got to 43 out of 100. That's not too bad.

4. Finish at least ten of the Reading List books by year's end. I got to 9. Not bad.

5. Pick up the pace in MRtB and finish the Book of Ruth by the end of the summer. I knocked this one out of the park.

6. Vignettes! Vignettes! I could probably still stand to beef up the anecdotal material. People seem to like it.

7. Try to keep up with everybody else's blogs. I've actually done pretty well at this, even if I'm sometime a few days behind.


And in with the New!

Having gone through that, I guess it's time to set some 2009 Blog Year Resolutions.



1. Stick with the Bible Blog, and try to finish off the Old Testament this year.

2. Keep the Quilt Blog, but don't sweat it.

3. Do a Great Movies post three or four times a month.

4. Do ten Reading List posts.

5. Don't forget to have fun with the thing.

That's All for Today!

Happy New Year, y'all!

I like #5 the best. If it's not fun for you, there's not really a point is there? That's what you have a job for!

Sounds good to me. And you might be interested in this blog improvement program thing I came across. I'm going to do it and it seems fun. Perhaps you will be interested:

Happy new year!

Those are reasonable resolutions. And yeah, you did a great job with the quizzes in '08. If they were a weekly column in my newspaper, I might actually buy the newspaper.

I am still in awe at your productivity, even if you are doing all your blogs, quilting, film watching and reading just for fun. My sum of my accomplishments in the fun and productive categories seems far smaller.

Heck, I fall behind on your blogs all to often, and I only read them and post comments three to eight days later than would be considered fashionably late.

Always enjoy reading your material, so let me say 'Thanks!'
