Thanks for the past year

Happy 2007 transitioning to 2008 from DesignNotes and Michael Surtees

Suggesting that the last year has been quite the ride would be an understatement. I like using the time between Christmas and New Year’s as a chance to look back over the last year and set some goals for the new one. Around this time last year there was no way to predict the ups and downs that would follow for me. Somehow I survived everything and I can’t wait to see what happens next. It really is crazy how fast a year can go. Part of the reason why DesignNotes exists for me is to capture those things that keep me interested and a chance to look back at it as an archive. What I didn’t expect was how much I would learn from others that spent time on DesignNotes and posted a comment or sent me an email about a particular topic or idea. In the new year I might slow down a bit with posting everyday and spend more time discussing points that people make over here. The one thing that bothered me was that I didn’t talk more to what people commented on. On a different note I’d also like to mention how cool it was to see DesignNotes placed on a lot of new blogrolls this year. Thanks so much. I hope that I can pay back the favour with updating my list in the new year. So with today being the last day of 2007 I hope that you make the most of the next one. Please keep me updated, after all we’re not a bunch of bots but people interested in what’s going on.
