Year end reflections

I got an email from a friend, Rick Spence, congratulating me for keeping up on the blog. Rick is former editor and publisher of Profit Magazine so knows how to write and the pressure of deadline stress. And since it has been a few days between posts lately, the guilt kicked in so I write again.

It is tough to come up with wisdom when all I am doing these days is running from holiday event to holiday event. Monday I went to a Leaf’s game with HP.

This time of year is a time I always reflect on what has gone on over the past year. This has been a year of high growth and learning for me. I learned many lessons this year. I know I still have a lot to learn.

I spend time trying to figure out where markets are going. What products and services are going to be hot and which ones are likely to slow. One trend for sure is Blogs. They are here to stay and will grow explosively in the coming year. Readership will increase but not as fast at content so the battle for readership will increase. Only good blogs will garner readership. Fortunately, good means different things for different people so there is space for multiple types of blogs.

I also spend a lot of time on goal setting or New years resolutions this time of year. More on that later.
