I did consider doing a collage of the Christmas Portraits shown below, but I got frustrated just looking at those silly pictures. So I chose a more amusing, relaxing photo. I thought that better expressed the holiday sentiment. So Happy 2009!
Had a great holiday, but it is nice to get back into a routine. And I'm looking forward to 2009-- I'm sure I'm not the only business owner that is glad 2008 is over! Yuck. Time to move forward.
While I'm planning for 2009, I'm also thinking about interesting ideas for this blog, that will hopefully interest you, the reader. So tell me in your comments what topics you like reading about here. I reserve the right to ignore your ideas, but who knows, I might pick the best ones and start them as a feature. And I might, just might, reward the inventor with some token of appreciation. Leftover Christmas cards, pencil shavings, an autographed picture, something.
These are the ideas I've conjured up so far:
I started "What do you want to know" last year and didn't keep it up very well. I even wrote topics that I never posted. Probably should pick that up again.
I've also thought about a "parade of unfinished projects" highlighting half-finished things and justifying why they didn't get finished. I have a few hundred ideas for that feature.
You know I will include an occasional "messy office & project room" post. Though that does seem to create great anxiety amongst many readers.
Of course, I will include more pictures than you care to see in the "isn't she darling?" category. But I do try to remember that many of you have your own children that you also think are the most beautiful children in the world and mine just might not be as interesting to you.
And I'll get back on the new how-to and furniture re-do bandwagon again soon.
Okay, your turn. Which of these are interesting to you? What other ideas would you suggest?
