Anniversary

Today is the first anniversary for this blog. I'm not big on anniversaries, and I'm not big on new year's resolutions. Change is a gradual process, and not something that you do on an arbitrary date each year. Trying to change just because it's the end of the year or your birthday is pretty much an invitation to failure, so I'm not making any resolutions. I never do. All in all, though, I'd have to say that 2007 wasn't an unmitigated disaster. I finally got out of the newspaper business, and the one story I published this year has been well received, and next year will see at least one more story with my name on it out there. You could say I'm cautiously optimistic, because that's the only type of optimism I've ever been able to manage.

Congrats! I followed a similar trajectory (though I'm still in the newspaper business and have been blogging for about 3 years) and it's satisfying and sets a nice tone for '08.
