It has been a year since I started this blog.  Well not exactly - the anniversary will come up on January 28.  But today is such a big benchmark that I am officially and arbitrarily moving the anniversary to today.  That way, everyone will associate the beginnings of this blog with having a hangover - and how appropriate is that?

When I started, I had hoped to put up one posting a week.  Ha!  I got to writing, and pretty soon my backlog was bigger than the blog, so I upped the frequency to 3 a week.  And I pretty much kept that pace thru the year.
(Parenthetical observation:  By now you may have noticed that I refuse to use the baroque spellings of two common words:  night and through.  Instead, I use my modernized versions: nite and thru.  Yes, I am a rebel - in small things anyway.)
So, here at the end of the year and the start of another, I have 27 drafts or ideas stashed away.  Thru last year, my drafts folder kept a total between 25 and 30, so things are about normal in at least that respect.

So, looking ahead, for the coming year, you can expect at least these:
  • Parts II and III on crabs
  • The Haulout
  • A host of destinations in the South Sound
  • More San Juan Island destinations (no, I'm not thru with the San Juans yet)
  • At least 3 more "I learned about sailing from that" posts
  • More book reports 
  • Sailing - How I got interested, and the early years
  • Whatever new projects Eolian throws at us.  I must confess that the backlog of older major projects is nearly exhausted (some of you are going, "Yea!")
So, how's that hangover doing?  Made it worse, didn't I?

The only hangover I had on 1-1-2010 was at my belt line, I thought it would be gone, but it keeps hanging on. Sounds like you have a plan; so good luck!
