New Year, New Start!

Hi Everyone!

Right off the bat I want to thank everyone who is reading this for sticking with me (or finding this site for the first time). As most of you know I was a fairly prolific writer until this past summer. Then I let things slide until I was hardly posting at all.

A lot of that had to do with my personal life at the time. And a lot just came down to sheer laziness.

Yes, my last post was for Thanksgiving. And I couldn’t even get off a Christmas or New Years post. And we all know how much personal development bloggers love seizing the opportunity to write about the New Year, and especially New year’s resolutions.

Well here ya go. My New year’s post…

Ill start off by doing a small Saturday wrap for ya. In beginning to think about what I would like to write about I started reading some other blogs. Of course, one of my stops is Zen Habits which continues to be one of the best blogs out there.

Leo included some of his top posts for 2009 including one that still applies for 2010. Here it is…

The Single Secret to Making 2009 Your Best Year Ever

Well the secret is out… Don’t wait for happiness. Have it now. It’s well worth the read.

As for me I would just like to apologize for not posting more. I just approved over 30 comments waiting for me from December. And I would just like to say I love the fact that I am still getting tons of visitors and people who take the time to leave comments. My hard work from the past is still living on without me.

That is what I love so much about writing and blogging especially. You write a good tidbit of information down and people get a lot of value out of it. And that value continues on without you. And you get to see a little of the result in the grateful comments. It is a real satisfying thing to have.

I have also became friends with some fellow bloggers. And sad to say, without blogging, the friendships kinda fade. However, one blogger friend emailed me out of the blue about a project she is working on to help the homeless in her area. If you are looking for a good cause to support I would suggest you check out her blog article Holidays and Homelessness.

I know this is a bunch of random stuff, but it is a byproduct of not posting more frequently.

As for the future, here are some things I want to do…

Economics and politics still continue to be my biggest “hobbies”. I would like to post some of the things I have learned about health care, our banking system, and the economy in general. You don’t wanna miss out on this juicy stuff.

I also want to start getting back to cooperation I had with other bloggers in the past. I am still welcoming guest articles and I will be looking to guest write on a few other blogs here in the near future.

I also have to check out my web analytics stuff. My numbers have been pretty steady without me doing much. It’s good to see I have a good baseline of visitors coming from google and other sources without the need for much promotion on other sites. And without the wild spikes of Stumble Upon. etc. I’m excited to see where I can take things from here.

Last but not least, I would like to start replying to comments again. I am going to leave the past couple months of comments go, but I would love for you to leave a comment on here saying hi. It will help me to get back to your blogs so I can get back on track again. πŸ˜‰

Happy New Year everyone! May this one be one of the best you have had!

  1. Hi Barbara,

    Wow, that was quick! I just posted. Well thanks for commenting. I definitely need to get back to your site. It has been helpful my entire time as a blogger!


  2. Hey, Jeremy! You’re back! Yippee!!

    Oh, I know it’s SO easy to push away from the keyboard and just ignore our blogs. I’m guilty myself. But the amazing thing about the blogosphere, is that we can always pick up where we left off! πŸ˜‰

    I rarely blog on my writing blog anymore, but when I do I’m sure to notice my “old blogger friends” start popping in with warm, kind comments.

    Thanks for mentioning my project for the homeless, by the way! And, I should’ve emailed you sooner – just to see where you’ve been! I miss your posts and comments – blog land isn’t the same without you, ya know?

    Happy New Year, Jeremy!

    .-= Michele´s last blog ..Raw, Organic ShimmerOrganics Mask Review =-.

  3. Glad to see a new post from you my friend, I am really looking forward to reading your articles on Politics, the Banking industry, and the economy, it will be interesting to see your point of view, especially since I am in school studying Finance. Hopefully you wont get too mad if we happen to disagree on a few things πŸ˜‰

    Happy New Year to you as well, lets hope that 2010 will be a great year for us πŸ˜€

    Till then,


  4. @ Michele – You are most welcome! Glad to see your comment.

    @ Jean – I am sure you can figure out if you disagree with me by reading my old articles on the subjects. And I most welcome your comments, dissenting or not.


  5. Happy New Year Jeremy! Glad to hear that your blog is doing well and that you have plans to get more active again in 2010.

    It is cool how a blog can continue to thrive even without regular posts. It is a testament to the quality of your posts.

  6. Oh awesome, I will definitely look back further then I’ve been looking on your blog, I guess I just haven’t gone far back enough yet on the post entries to see the entries in regards to the economy and financial issues, since I like to work my way backwards from the front page to the older posts.

    Till then,


  7. New year is always an occasion to try something new, something else maybe. But if we look at our life from bigger perspective we can be assured that our decisions and changes in life have nothing in common with the new year coming right about now or in near future.
