Goodbye 2009 and Welcome 2010

It has been exactly a year since I started this blog, as it was one of my new year's resolutions for 2009. So how did I do? Well, I'd say it went as well as a typical new year's resolution: highly motivated at the beginning with great progress in the first half of the year, then the consistency started to lapse, with eventual abandonment towards the last quarter of the year. All told I authored 23 posts, which is almost 2 posts/month, though they heavily skewed towards the first half of the year.

While it's far from where I'd like to be with blogging, 2009 was a solid start. And it was a very rewarding experience when I did make time for it. It helped collect my own thoughts on a variety of topics, get feedback from a growing audience of readers, and meet quite a few interesting people along the way. Here's a look back at the highlights:

Top Five Posts from 2009 (by pageviews)

3. My Muses for Brainstorming Startup Ideas
4. 5 Music Startups to Watch in 2009
5. Make Something People Will Buy

With the start of 2010 comes a new blogging resolution (and a revamped blog design). This year I hope to blog weekly. It's a big step up from last year, so here's to hoping I can keep up the pace. I hope my readers help hold me to it! You can look forward to posts covering all my interest areas, including technology, entrepreneurship, product management, platforms, monetization, productivity, and more.

Happy New Year!
