Milestone!

I hit a little bit of a blogging milestone today. Nothing huge, but it really makes me happy to see.

I checked my google reader and found that I'm just about to hit 100 people subscribed to my blog feed through google! And there's another 45 or so through other readers. Nearly 150 people out there tune in at least semi regularly to hear...errr read, what I have to say. I can't say it enough times you guys, I am honored.

Now that in itself is a milestone, and one I'm proud of, but this afternoon I was looking over the January/February issue of GRIT ... And I took to reading the editors section about Good Changes coming up for 2009. It was a good read, talking about new additions to the magazine and the online content...
And then I caught it...

What the??? My name is in print!! OK OK, I know, it's just a mention of my blog that I've been contributing to on their online magazine but, and can I say this again, it's my name in print!

I don't know what it is about print media that makes me so excited? Maybe it's just my age and the fact that I grew up on it so it seems a little more elusive than the web. Whatever the case, I'm really happy about it. Want to hear more? Do ya?

Ok, you broke me... I mentioned a little while back that I had some cool news that I just didn't feel comfortable mentioning yet. Well, I've been asked to write a couple of significant pieces for the print magazine as well! Of course, as it is with the publishing industry, I probably can't count on it too much until the work is printed, but it's still a really great opportunity for me and one that I've had as a goal for some time. In fact, it's one of the things I laid out in my 2009 goals. I'll keep you posted as I know more on it.

2009 is shaping up to be a heck of a year ain't it?
All the best to you.

Thanks everyone...I know it was shameless back patting, but hey, sometimes you gotta do that right?
Thanks again, I wouldn't be doing this still if it weren't for you all.
