It amazes me how a blog post I wrote in 2010 continues to top the Stats in my WordPress Dashboard. After five (5) years, it’s the most popular blog post on my site.

How do you return to blogging on a regular basis after a hiatus, sabbatical, or whatever term you’d use to describe an absence from blogging?
Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2012, everyone!
Yes, I’ve been a bit quiet this past year, on my blog, that is. I’m more active on Twitter, and somewhat active on Facebook. But, what happened?
Moving across state lines can be a huge endeavor, and it involves all kinds of adjustments for loved ones. In addition, I gained new clients, and that ramp-up work does take time to get used to new systems, and build trust and confidence in new business relationships.
Most importantly, our new community has a full schedule of fun events, as well as wilderness areas and national forests that begged us to explore the outdoors in Real World. I still pinch myself that I’m only a 10- to 15-minute drive from thick pine forests and lakes.
So, my blog fell silent in 2011.
What Did I Learn in 2011?
- Moving across state lines is a huge endeavor. LOL
- A cat person of many years can become a dog person when adopted by a wonderful canine
- Some client projects are great “fits” and create long-term relationships
- Some client projects are not a great fit, and it’s okay to move on/forward
- Twitter is still a great networking tool for me
- Still love and adore my iPad (Gen 1) and am convinced tablets can be a great mobile learning tool
- My new, semi-rural, community has some great resources
- Colleagues die and leave us with an emptiness inside. (RIP @TerrenceWing)
What Do I Hope for in 2012?
- Master a few IT programs and platforms that have been on my To Do list for too long
- Learn instructional design for mobile platforms (mobile learning)
- Gain new mobile learning clients and projects
- Connect with key people and resources in my community
- Continue working with my wonderful clients and their projects
- Regularly communicate with, and appreciate, colleagues and loved ones (life is so short)
Thank you for sharing journeys with me over the past few years.
I look forward to hearing about your new adventures in 2012!
Guy Kawasaki (The Art of the Start) has a venture called Alltop.com, and through Cammy Bean‘s tweet on Twitter, I learned that Alltop.com has added the e-learning category at:
What is this? It’s all the top news about e-learning! In one place, on one Web page.
