jan2010 That's right, it’s another new year.  Looking at the year ahead, one gets anxious at the thought of coming up with 365, or however many you decide,  blog posts for the year ahead.

How many New Years resolutions have you made? How many goals have you set for your blog? Have you planned any blog posts yet?

A good successful blog comes about with good planning. So this year I want you and I to succeed at that.

Blogging is a journey. It is an adventure. Are you ready for that this year? Why not come with me on this journey this year?

If you do come with us on this journey, I guarantee you a few things.

  • Your blogging will improve
  • You will lean new things
  • You will teach others
  • You will make friends and followers
  • You will have fun
  • You will stumble
  • You will succeed

So to start this adventure and journey out, we are going to brainstorm some blog post ideas. You don’t have to use these exact ideas, get some of your own if you wish. Perhaps you might even share them with us.

But the point is that it’s a start. It gives one a sense of structure and also a feeling of being in control.

What I am going to do is that every month we are going to set out a bunch of blog posts for that month.
