Milestones are good things giving you a chance to both look backwards and think about the future.
I'm excited about my one year blogging anniversary milestone.
Like a bad Oscar speech there are people I would like to thank: firstly Russell, without first reading his blog and then coming to the Breakfast Club coffee mornings back in November 2006 I would never have had the inspriation/courage to begin blogging myself. It was also the network of smart people from all over the world that Russell linked me into via his blog that took me so pleasantly by surprise.
Couple of other blog Thank You shout outs - Faris, you were the best thing about working at Naked and the first person to leave a comment on this blog; Beeker, you were my first proper blog friend (and it took us months and months to meet up in person!); Kaitlyn, the Catch Up Lady, an American blogging friend that I will probably never meet in person, but I was so pleased for you when you got your big new job at Ogilvy PR in Washington DC and when you started the Ogilvy Blogger Code of Conduct I was really proud that we were blog friends; Neil at Only Dead Fish; David at Sixty Second View, Richard at Adliterate - the list goes on...
Blogging has helped me sharpen my thinking, connect with a diverse set of people and views and provided me with a continual flow of creative ideas from all around the world. It has been a fantastic year in so many ways, here's to 2008.
