As I wrote that line last February, I was already imagining my January 2009 conclusion post. In it, I would happily (dare I say, obnoxiously?) review how far I'd come in the past year. There would be mention of publication in Family Circle, and heck, maybe even a second glossy. I'd post a record of my earnings, from the 4 cents Ehow paid me in March, to the thousands I'd be making by January.
Okay, I had high expectations. But not unreachable. And working towards those goals landed me the role of newsletter editor at two organizations, publication in regional magazines and [enter joyous singing choir]

Here's hoping we all get to write the obnoxious type of post I'm imagining for 2010!
