TwitterA few years ago I thought I knew all about the internet. I had attempted something like a photo blog back in 1999, not that I had heard of that term back then, to show friends and family back home what I was up to on my trip around the world.

It wasn’t completely successful but that isn’t the point. I thought I understood what the internet was for. It was simply a method of displaying static information to lots of people, or so I thought. How wrong I was.

Around that time everything changed. As more and more people got connected to the internet at ever faster speeds things evolved at an astounding rate.

As I recently mentioned I have a short term goal of improving my web presence. As the web is now such a vibrant, dynamic place, I have had to come to terms with the reality of things like social networks.

Empty Bucket at Punta Del EsteAs this is the start of another new year I thought it was time to start making a list of things that I would like to achieve at some stage in my life. I may also include items that have crossed my mind at some stage that may be interesting or challenging, they might improve my life in some way or they may just be silly little things that appeal to me in some strange way.

To help get me started I am going to include some of the things that I have already achieved as well. This will give me the chance to cross a few things off straight away, which is always a nice feeling anyway. The other advantage to this is that the list is no longer virgin territory and so attempting the first item will not seem so daunting.

I was going to aim for 100 items but I expect this list to become a moving target with items added and crossed off as and when the opportunity arises so I am just going to start creating a list and see what happens…

Happy New Year !!A new year brings the opportunity for fresh outlook on things, and hopefully 2010 will bring great things.

My new years resolution is to improve my web presence.

I have been around computers for a long time and I created my own basic web pages a long time ago. Unfortunately they became stagnant and I just simply stopped updating them. That was nearly 10 years ago…

To put this right I am trying to get this blog up and running and I plan to start posting regular weekly posts about whatever is on my mind at the time. As the year starts on a Friday that seems to be the perfect day to target for my weekly post. Let’s just hope that this lasts longer than some of my previous resolutions…
