It should be said, I also hope to do more posting in the New Year. I suppose the economic situation has escaped no one’s attention by this stage, and my attention lately has necessarily been more on the work itself – getting it, doing it – than writing about it. I’ve been doing copywriting, journalism, interviewing, and editing, training; tutoring, mentoring; press & PR work, including social media; and am currently helping someone restructure and rewrite a website for a new venture.
So even in bad old 2011, I’ve been lucky to do some really exciting, good work. I’ve met some wonderful, committed, energetic, creative people this year. I’ve worked on great stories and projects, in a spectrum of sectors: renewable technology, energy=saving, the arts and publishing, and others. I’ve put a lot into it, I’ve learned a lot, and I’ve been able to use what I learned.
I’ve helped some people really put all their ducks – I mean snowmen – in a row. I’ve helped clients get technical reports accurate and readable, and start or improve their blogs and websites, and get their books published, and learn to get their messages across more clearly.
As my attention turns to food preparation and my family, I realise I can look back and feel I made a real difference to a wide variety of clients in 2011. Even with the uncertainty we’re currently looking into, that’s a great feeling.
So along with my two snowman pals, let me wave you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah, and a very prosperous New Year. And I really do hope to work with you in 2012.
Now, let’s get festive.
