Chinese New Year’s resolutions

In January, my New Year’s resolution was to make more resolutions today: Chinese New Year. Solely because Chinese New Year is more than a month later.

So here goes:

  • Go electronic/automatic with as much of my record keeping and business handling as possible. There are a lot of things I could be doing electronically but have still been doing on paper or through the mail. Also, I need to come up with a better system for handling recurring tasks and scheduling. If it comes down to it, I may end up with one of these or these. (sigh)
  • Rewrite the Daily Message tutorials, Podcast Suite, iWebCal, and my book to catch up with Joomla! updates. The latter should come out first.
  • Validate all of the markup on jlleblanc.com. Last year, I finally got on the whole semantic web bandwagon and haven’t fallen off yet. What was the catalyst for all of this? jQuery. When I saw how it was all CSS selector-based, DOM programming and the benefits of validated markup simultaneously made sense. The pursuit of validation is also helping me maintain Section 508 compliance at work.
  • Blog more and worry less about writing essays. When I started blogging, I actually wanted to start a site where I would keep a repository of opinions on specific topics, refined over time. This doesn’t really seem to work as people are much more familiar with off-the-cuff blog posts.
  • Incorporate.
  • Launch a major web-based service. Oh, so you’d like to know what’s cooking at Chez LeBlanc? You’ll just have to wait and see ;)
