New Year, Same Me


Laurie Ruettimann is my blogging idol.

The point of telling you? I’m following her lead. For my end of year posts, I’m talking about accomplishments, failure, regrets, and resolutions. I can’t promise I’ll stick to posting daily as I’m taking a flight at the crack of dawn to North Carolina tomorrow for a big spoonful of guilt and grief from my family but it can be my pre New Year resolution. The blogging will probably also sit in the pre New Year fail column.

What? I’m being honest. I love a good fail.

So, my accomplishments of the year:

  • Blogging: I’ve been busy between traveling, changing jobs and wedding planning but I’m still taking the time to put all the advice I give into posts. So even if it sucks, I’m writing it and that’s more than I could say a year ago.
  • Getting engaged: I liked it. I put a ring on it. It’s a big f’n deal.
  • Facebook Rainmaker: Someone I really trust said this re: the work I’ve done at my new job on our Facebook page. It was the best compliment ever and helped me realize that I’m good at this social media stuff.
  • Change: I made some big changes this year personally and professionally. I wanted a career and I took a risk to get it. Know that risk can be awesome.

So that’s me, briefly. What’s your big accomplishment of the year? Screw the comment. Take the lead and blog about your own failures, accomplishments and resolutions. What do you have to lose?

    I too love a good fail. Biggest accomplishment? Not letting the man keep me down. Damn the man, save the empire.

  2. Katrina,
    I thought I was your blogging idol? LOL!

    Super idea and I will adapt over on my site. Fails are great experiences, as long as we learn from them!

    You’ve undoubtedly had more successes than you give yourself credit for. You’ve cited the biggies, but don’t discount the tons of smaller wins!

    Happy Holiday and best wishes for 2011!
