No Resolutions

Perhaps I should have warned you I've been contemplating a new look for Foothills Fancies this year. Or at least a new color scheme, something a bit more wintry. It'll take me a while to get used to this, but here it is.

The entire day has been "lost" in fiddling around with the computer. Fun, even enlightening, but not productive, in the traditional sense of the word. It's been a kind of hole-up, watch-the-temperature-drop, and go-for-the-cabin-fever kind of day anyway.

I can't tell you all the amazing things I'm planning to blog about in 2010, but I can show you. Maybe. (Hey, a girl can dream.) We'll be crossing our fingers, but not making any promises. Life has a way of intervening, sometimes with unexpected opportunities that can take over.

2009 was that kind of a year, so I'm learning not to make predictions. As blogging years go here at FF, the results weren't half bad, at least numerically. (No comment on overall quality.) Sixty-one posts here makes it a close third (out of four years), but 2009 did set one new record! It's the first year where at least one post managed to appear in each calendar month. Wow... no extended hiatuses, despite all that's been going on. I know that's stretching, but I'll look for achievement where I can!

Just so you know, though, even living in "exciting times," I'd rather be blogging more often. Whatever's going on, I do take daily pleasure in checking out the informative and entertaining and top-notch work the rest of you are posting. Thanks for all the good times and great reading!

Congratulations on a successful 2009, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with in 2010.

All things considered, I wish I could update more often also. I've settled into an every 3-4 days patter, which I guess isn't too bad but still seems paltry compared to some of the others our there - I just don't know how they do it. I could only increase my frequency if I did a bunch of short, quick "filler" posts in between the longer, more substantive one - that isn't very satisfying to me.

Anyway, thanks for showing me a glimpse of the front range - I must get out there sometime!

Great new look! We like to imagine those are turkey tracks running up the right-hand side =) Can't wait to see what adventures you have in 2010!
