2008 Highlights

Today marks the second anniversary of the start of this blog.

To celebrate another year completed, here are three of my favourite posts from the last 12 months:

“Let’s say you’re launching a new website.

How good is it going to be when it first goes live?

Probably pretty crap, truth be told.”

“Do you take photos at the highest resolution your digital camera allows?”

“Do you actually need to categorise every transaction?”

But, based on the posts you chose to read, by far the most popular post from the last year was one I wrote literally 365 days ago:

“Do less.”

I’m pleased to say that through the year I managed to do most of the things listed in that post.

It found its way onto StumbleUpon in January and has been read over 13,700 times since then (over 2,700 times in one day alone in February).  Ironically, a post about “less” got the most attention!

If you find these post interesting, check out a longer list of posts from 2008 that I think are worth re-visiting.

Thank you to all of you who took the time to read what I’ve written this year.  I am still constantly surprised by how many of you there are, and how much I learn from spending some time thinking about what I’m writing and being part of the conversation.

I’m going to continue to evolve this blog over the next 12 months. 

I plan to write less frequently, but (hopefully) more thoughtfully. 

I also have a new Twitter account, which I’ll try using for shorter things, as they come to mind.  My user name is  @rowansimpson if you want to follow me there.

I hope you continue to find it all worth reading.
