Well the first month of 2013 is almost over and no casualties. In our house anyways.
I have not slipped into the post New Years Resolution Depression this year - so far. Only because I didn't make any resolutions to break. Since I have gained 25 pounds in "sympathy weight" from our latest pregnancy I think I will get Seasonally Depressed in the Summer this year.
Google Analytics & Traffic
The Philippines and Israel made the big moves this month in the stats. Canada and the US are the big dogs with Russia, China and the UK in close for second.
I have been working on some different strategies to improve site traffic. One strategy that most of the Blogging Gurus recommend is Guest Posting on more popular Blogs. This is proving easier said than done and unless my Mom starts a Blog we may be in for a bit of a wait.
I'm not giving up though ... stay tuned.
Declaration of Intention
For the last 15 years I have been working in Community Development, primarily with Indigenous, or First Nations, Communities in British Columbia - the last six years as an Independent Consultant.
I am Declaring my Intention to make a complete change in my career and focus on advancing my passion for writing.
Let's see where this takes us...
I have written in some detail about my belief in the Power of Intention so I thought I should take my own advice. It's a new path for me but I have been talking about writing for 20 years - time to act! Stay tuned on this one as well.
Speaking of depression - more than 1,300 people have committed suicide by jumping off San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge since it was built in 1937.

Speaking of comments, I received a comment from an e-mail relating to my post on Honesty:
"I would, however, quarrel with your statement that “two people can disagree and both be right". On subjective issues or matters of opinion that might be true, but when it comes to hard facts ..."
Please have a look at the post and let me know what you think.
Are there examples of hard facts where there is only one truth?
Please leave a comment after this Post if you have an opinion you would like to share.
