Reflections as 2009 draws to a close

Wow, blogging isn't as easy as it looks. There are the usual challenges: finding time, making it a priority, and making it a part of my periodic routine. As the limited number of posts since I started this blog attests, these challenges have largely prevailed. And the end of the year is a perfect time to reflect on these learnings, and make a plan of action for the coming year. So here are a few things I am planning to overcome these challenges in 2010:

1) I have decided to take back control of my email inbox. I'm currently in the process of unsubscribing my primary email from most bulk lists. I am hoping this will help me better manage my time and attention.
2) I've decided to continue blogging, with the intention of posting more frequently.
3) I am enlisting technology to help make blogging more integral part of my routine. As evidenced by this post, I've added blogpress lite to my iPhone. My iPhone is with me wherever I go, and I am hoping that allows me to find time to post more frequently (for example, in airports, waiting rooms and on the Metro.). Added bonus: supports uploading photos:



(Yes, that is a CAE ornament near the top.)

As 2009 draws to a close, what is on your mind? What will you do differently in 2010?
