The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

2008 Year In Review - The Archives

I enjoy doing a Year In Review post to reflect on all that has happened the past year.  The 2007 Year In Review was my very first one, and I've decided to do it again this year. This one is going to be a bit different than last years though.

Here's something I discovered while initially trying to create this post, and I recommend trying this for  yourself.  This just might help to inspire and motivate some folks to look at their goals, plans, and life  differently in 2009.  Take a look and see what this type of "Yearly Review" might do for you.

  In 2008

 

This is a recap from the ActiveBrad "Archives", BUT it's not about me. 

If you check out "YOUR Archives", using the monthly links on your sidebar, it's really very interesting.  It's kinda cool to look at your own Blog and go back through the year and "YOUR" life.  What does your 2008 Blog on ActiveRain reveal to you, or about you? 

Have you ever looked back at the year through your Blogs viewpoint?  What will YOU discover?  Sorting your posts out by each month, lets you really see exactly where you've been, what you've done, and possibly where you're going or where you might want to be in the future?!?

Looking back at my year in review, I discovered many things about myself, my life, my goals and aspirations.  I reviewed my Blog from a 3rd party perspective, like reading a book, and it shed a whole new light on ME.  Who I am, what I like, what I don't, and what I want to change?   Your Own Blog may be the best goal setting and motivational resource you have.  It's your most accurate account for YOUR "Year In Review".

It's been one of the most wonderful, exciting, and yet different years I have ever lived through.  I have grown and learned so much from all of you, and now I'm even learning from myself, and about me too.  LOL~

How To Remove Antivirus Pro 2009 VIRUS from your Computer - 12/02/08 10:08 AM

It's really different when you see all that you've done in a year, your life all on a single page.  It's like a big recording of events that you might have forgotten about, or lost if it weren't for your Blog.  So what does your Blog's "Year In Review" say about you, or to you?  I know in 2009, I'm making some changes, and without a doubt, "I'm starting with the man in the mirror."

It was a GREAT 2008, I'm looking forward to a DIVINE 2009!!   :-)
