All of these crazy New Years resolutions and promises to give up things you love or start challenging yourself with things you usually are terrible at in hopes of being better at those things in 2011. It sounds like so much pressure, especially on the final regular season NFL Sunday of the year. I mean it’s only two days into the New Year, on a Sunday and I’m already feeling the pressures of cracking on these silly self promises.
OK, maybe not cracking all that bad and more so of a personal challenge for fun then anything.
Basically, as m0st of you that read my blog on a daily basis or subscribe to my RSS feed know I wrote a “Sunday Smash” series on a weekly basis throughout most of 2010. The Sunday Smash series was to share the best articles on business tips, business blogging tips and social media. I read and currently subscribe to around 300 blogs ranging on everything from tech blogs, social media marketing, and entrepreneur blogs to everyday business news and, imagine that politics.
In any case as 2010 came to a close so did the old format for how I did my Sunday Smash posts. I’m not even sure the new version in 2011 will even be called the Sunday Smash, I do know that it will start again next week and it will contain a different format and only the highest quality articles. I want the topics and articles shared here to help the small business owners and young entrepreneurs that read my blog looking for information to help them grow their own online presence.
Wow, I really started to get off topics there. Anyway, all of the stress today came when I realized I didn’t have a decent post scheduled for today and I didn’t have my Sunday Smash to fall back on in the pinch. I know, it really doesn’t seem like a big deal but one of the stupid things I am trying to commit to in 2011 is seeing how many days I can go before missing a blog update. I know for a fact I don’t want to be out of the game on January 2, 2011.
That would piss me off.
I hope all of you crazy kids are enjoying the weekend, stay out of trouble and I’ll hopefully get something ready for tomorrow morning. If you have any suggestions about a topic you would like to see me write on leave a comment, I’m always open to pretending to work on the things you want me to write about I kid, I kid.
P.s. In case you missed it, Abnormal Marketing was kind enough (or smashed) to include me in their list of “10 Great Bloggers of 2010“. I know I mentioned i on Saturday in my Twitter recap, but let’s face it this is huge. You can expect me to ride it out for at least six months. Oh yeah, not to mention Kristi the social media genius behind Kikolani was nice enough to include my, “13 Hardcore Reasons Every Business Needs a Facebook Page” in her final Fetching Friday Resources Mashup of 2010. Wooop!
P.s. II > I’m looking forward to some of Lisa’s homemade chili today!
