New Year’s Resolution

OK, I realize it’s a little late to make the old New Year’s resolution, but I’m non-traditional (I also stay home every New Year’s Eve and I usually toast it with sparkling cider even though I’m not a teetotaler).

But here we go…

I resolve to have a blog post up every weekday for the rest of the year.

Now let see if I can keep that resolution. It would be only the second resolution I’ve kept, and the last one was to add a small and occasional (and legal, by the way) vice to my life as a midlife crisis gift, so it wasn’t hard to keep that one. However, seeing as it was last January’s resolution, success in that (even if it was nearly a foregone conclusion at the time) might bode well for the success of this one. (I’m on a roll!)

Now, I’m not promising you scintillating content EVERY day. This blog is a place for rumination, debate and even humor, but it’s also a place where we put “all the news that doesn’t fit in print.” We can’t run everything in the physical ddn obviously, and the blog and website together give us that extra outlet. Some days might be pharma promotion news while the next day might be breaking news of a huge merger deal. You just never know. Like shopping at thrift/salvage stores, antique shops or Amazon.com, every day’s a surprise.

But I will work hard to ensure that every weekday, sometime between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern U.S. time, I have at least one new post, and hopefully more than one on many days.

Here’s hoping we can toast my success in that endeavor. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to see if there’s any more tinsel from the Christmas tree hiding in any corners or under furniture (or perhaps clinging to the back of my shoe right now). And a Happy (somewhat belated) New Year to all of you!
