I actually had to write "2009" on something today and it was tough, but that's how January goes every year I guess. I have a fetish for all of the "Best of . . . ." lists that come out at the end of the year. As a kid I would obsess over Rick Dees and/or Casey Kasem counting down the songs from the year. Well, take a quick glance to the right column of my blog and you'll see the top 11 posts of the year. A few posts ago I asked for your input and 8 of you responded! However, I'm pretty sure some reasonable self-interest played into that. You wanted the prize. But your responses were great! I geeked out and used a spreadsheet with a random number generator (rock band names?) to pick the winner. And here were the results:
Congrats to my sister-in-law, Kellie, who will soon be the proud owner of an Amazon gift card courtesy of HTF.
Well it was kinda fun to look back at the year. Some of that stuff seems like it was a decade ago. It was a great year - no complaints here! I've tried to build up the readership, and you all responded! Thanks to each of you who reads along, and especially to those who participate with comments, e-mails, and linking back to HTF. I'll try to bring it better in 2009. There's gonna be a lot to blog about - a new president, an economy that's gonna get better or even worse, my family FINALLY joins me for our move to Seattle, and who knows what other adventures we'll see this year. So a belated Happy New Year to each of you!
