Kiss My Aster's 2009 Accomplishments

Turns out that I was no slacker in 2009. Here's 10 random accomplishments...



My horoscope said 2009 was going to be the best year ever for me and, for once, it was right. Here are a few random things I did that I can remember. Which is an accomplishment in itself.

In no particular order....

Image placeholder title
  1. I started 2009 with intentions of making a book (notice I didn't even say "write"). I didn't fulfill that intention but I did contribute to 3 other books. This one, this one and this one. I think I still owe 2009 a book, don't tell it where to find me.
  2. I broke my key off in the ignition of my car
  3. A friend and I started a podcast with a target audience of pretty much just the 2 of us.
  4. I got a glider
  5. I moved back to Illinois and got my dream job with Landscaping Company X.
  6. I completely abandoned an entire garden in Indiana when I moved. It still hurts to think about.
  7. I harassed thousands of people via Twitter and Facebook
  8. I stumbled through a series of interviews, workshops and one webinar
  9. I co-birthed a wee side project so that I could ensure that I never had any spare time ever again
  10. I started blogging for Horticulture, the best damn gardening magazine out there, run by the nicest people ever. So nice that when I get asked to change that to a "dang" tomorrow, I'll do it with a smile.

Peace out, 2009. You didn't suck. Forum, yo.
