January Update….

Hello again! It’s great to be back to post here at Veggies...

I’ve missed blogging and I’m really looking forward to visiting you all again soon.

As I mentioned previously, I have been working on a number of projects and goals that I want to complete for 2011. January has already been a very good start to the year.

 I’ve been keeping a yearly goal plan and also one for each month. January’s projects have all been checked off, except for one project to go and that should be a quickie! 😉 I’ve still got a few days to finish.

I really think this is the kind of goal-setting that’s going to continue to work for me. Workable and at the same time enough of a challenge to make it interesting.

So, what are some of the things I got completed and/checked off my goal list for January?

  • committed and kept to a regular exercise plan
  • chose all the poems I want to include in a collection I am working on
  • 1 crochet project (1 to go) for the crochet book I’ve had on the back-burner for too long quite a while
  • set-up my new review blog (more about that below)
  • various proposals and local projects that are still in the works (again more to come on these)

So, not too shabby for a good start to the new year!

Speaking of my new review blog. It’s now a reality at: My Real Life Reviews

Hope you’ll stop by soon and often. Please add me to your blogroll: www.myreallifereviews.com and do spread the word.

I’ve been wanting to start a review blog for a long time. In recent months I’ve also had a number of emails/requests from companies and individuals asking me if I’d be interested in reviewing their products.These requests have been another nudge/reminder for me to  finally get this new blog up and running.  I also have written several reviews in the past here at Veggies…and My Poetic Path, that I’ll be sharing over at My Real Life Reviews.

I’ve  always found  it so helpful to check out reviews for products I’m interested in, before buying or when considering which brand/type to chose. I hope you’ll find my reviews helpful and informative. Mr. Cheddar will also be helping (natch) and has already designated himself as blog author for all products feline-related. I’m certainly ok with that!

I’m still getting use to Blogger after being with WordPress for such a long time. It’s been fun and a bit of a challenge but I think the “bones” of the blog are looking pretty good. Now to get those posts written and the sidebar filled up!

As my new blog header says re: the products I’ll be featuring: SOME GOOD, SOME OK and SOME….JUST PLAIN BAD!

I’ll end up today with a big thanks to Ruinwen for the beautiful goodie package (which also included natural soap and a scrub) that arrived in the mail for me this week. I was also inspired to update my avatar photo after this wonderful pkg. arrived!

She knitted this lovely scarf for me and I will treasure it always:
