“Welcome 2011, Glad ta’ meetcha’”
“Cya’ later 2010, don’t let the door hit you in the backside on the way out.”
2010 is dead and gone.
Mistakes of last year are in the distant past, “that was sooooo last year”
But so are the accomplishments. It is time to wrap last year up in a bow, both good and bad are done and gone. What do you have for me now? What are you doing today? What are you doing tomorrow and the next day and the next? We should never forget the past, but the new year is the perfect time to move on from it and embrace the future.
In this edition of the Sunday selections we shall take a quick glance back at the year that was, a little look forward at what may (or can) be and finally take a glimpse at what a few readers have as their: “resolutions”.
As we now peer through the dark recesses of time to go far back to the mystical realm of 2010, we are led on our Journey by Karen, who gives us an excellent year in review of her site.
Brian then also gives the best of copyblogger for 2010. Copyblogger is a site I love and is cram packed with good information. Somehow there are STILL articles I missed this year (a lot actually). Some great stuff!
Farnoosh, recaps her year of 2010 as well as giving a glimpse into how she achieved some of her success in her year end review.
Then, of course there are some of my favorite posts from 2010 from here on Steve Scott site. I have not yet reached the “year” mark yet (not quite), so these are also my favorite posts of all time. Perhaps not, “the best” -that is not for me to decide really- these are just the ones I really like..
Then to end with something, “just a little bit different,” Gizmodo ran a review of the best reviews of the year. Sort of like a riddle wrapped in an enigma cloaked by a review.
There, I am all done with 2010 now. Time to prepare for the future -duhn dun dun-
Rather than reinvent the wheel on some of this I will start with a must read link from Mashable. I can’t believe I said that. I like Mashable, but normally they have regurgitated content that is in an easily digestible form. Sort of like the way a bird feeds. They chew up good content and barf it into our mouths. Yum! It can be nutritious, but I often like to find my own worms. But I digress, the roundup at Mashable for the 95 predictions of 2011 is excellent. It really is the must read article of the month.
Marlee gives us a few important lessons that we can all carry forward into this coming 2011 when she discusses details of your business plan for 2011.
Finally Barbara reminds us that 2011 is a beginning. The important thing that we all should take from 2011 is the hope that we can truly make a difference in someone’s life. That is worth more than anything else when you come right down to it.
So it is now day two of 2011. Anyone fail on their resolutions yet? I hope not. Hopefully your resolutions are not simply dreams but are also goals. For our final links this Sunday we will simply take a quick look at a few people’s resolutions and New Year’s thoughts. Hopefully you have your own resolutions and goals. If so feel free to state your goals below in the comments. Sometimes verbalizing them (or in this case writing them) can help in the achievement of these goals.
Zarko: New Year SEO post
Hopefully everyone had a 2010 that could be at least classified as “decent” after all the ups and downs. Regardless of your 2011, this year is a clean slate. Let us “grab the bull by the horn”, “put our best feet forward” and “seize the day”. Add in as many overused sayings as you want, the important thing is that 2011 is here now, and it will be what you make of it.Take Action. Get Results.
