What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

It's a song.

As 2009 winds down -- as well as the whole of the "aughts" decade -- I find myself reminiscent about all of the things that I have experienced. Both in my personal life and as my on-line alter-ego, I feel that I have been greatly blessed. My family is happy and (reasonably) healthy, TPW has a good job and we live in a great community of which I am growing more fond everyday. Adding to all of this the fact that I am able to be a stay-at-home-dad is merely icing on an extremely delicious cake.

It is times like these that I am thankful that I am fortunate enough to live in America. After watching some of the protest videos coming out of Iran, I really don't need to elaborate much more on that. Yowza.

As for the blog, we have been plugging away all year and continue to make in-roads deeper into the Internets. Our reach has grown, as has our readership. For that I am grateful to B-Diddy, The Fury Blogger and Vast for adding their two coppers as well as spreading the good word about 2010 is going to be a big year here. The 2009 Weblog Awards have yet to announce finalists (*crosses fingers*), but I am hopeful we'll see some results in the next few days. Also, I have some dramatic changes in mind for the website. In the coming months, I'm planning a top-down redesign of the entire blog. This will include a more user-friendly interface, web 2.0 styling, stronger social media integration and much more. Stay tuned for the fun.

That's it for posting for me until Monday (most likely). I hope that you all have a very festive New Year celebration tonight. Please be safe. Remember, if you're drivin', don't drink and if you're drinkin', don't drive. I expect to see you all right back here in 2010.

Much love.
