This year I’m doing a retrospective so at the end of the year I can take a quick glance at what piqued my interest. This is the second in an ongoing series. It seemed like a couple patterns emerged that I’m looking at. Early one there were more ideas generated from the white board, while in the middle of the month it was more about sets of things while towards the end it was quotes and stuff that happens outside. It’s pretty rare that I pre-plan posts for the blog, though this month I’m bringing something back something that’s been dormant for a while. Stay tuned if you’re so inclined.

## January Retrospective

This isn’t really meant to be a post like everything else, but more like a tool for me at the end of the year. I’m just going to collect all the posts on a monthly basis in a more visual way. That way when I look back at everything I’ve written I can go through things a lot quicker…

As the months go by I suspect the format will change a bit just like every Link Drop Contextd has shifted. I might break up the tiny thumbnails to give them a bit of breathing room and condense the space with the larger images and titles. Or maybe I’ll just keep it the same.
