two reason's to celebrate

Thursday, January 1, 2009

first off - happy new year!! i have a feeling 2009 is going to be an amazing year.

second off -
it's my blogs birthday!! who would have thought that when i started my blog on new years day 2008 that the plum would still be around to see new year's day 2009.

it's been a nice little run for the cleveland's a plum blog:


301 posts
5,102 comments

404 followers on
twitter
250 wonderful blogs in my reader
37 bloggers that i can now call my real life friends

10 (at least) disagreements with my mom about the content on my blog

13
plumheads of the week
12
featured blogger friday's
77 bottles of wine consumed

and 528 instances of being truly awesome


this blog had a great year. it not only created and documented a lot of happy times and my love of cleveland for me but also solidified my passion for all types of social media and the power that we as social media mavens possess. it's freakishly cool and exciting to be a part of.

now i know this is supposed to be the time to make my list of 2009 resolutions, but as one of my very first readers (joy too!), other than my friends and family said in her post yesterday - i'm going to list out some goals.

goals just seem nicer than resolutions don't you think?

my 2009 goals


get on the howard stern show - whether it is a call in, an email of mine being read, or being in studio (dream) i need to make stern contact. the only reason for my sirius subscription is for howard stern, artie lange, robin quivers and fred norris. i guess you can say i'm a fan. oh wait, maybe i can get added to the whack pack cast member. 'alexa the blogger' has a nice ring to it. right?

stop freaking out over things that i can't control, cause that's just a waste of energy. 'jealously' i'm talking to you too.

get more involved in my community
- get on a board, an event committee or volunteer. i must give back.

although i do enjoy harmlessly judging people i need to give people the benefit of the doubt - i do practice this but i must maintain it, everyone had a reason for their actions no matter how funked up it is.

have this blog mentioned in cleveland magazine - i'm looking at you jim vickers! this was a goal i made for myself when i started this blog and i'm not giving it up just yet.

get published - i really want to work on my writing and have my full name attached to a piece of journalism would be absolutely amazing honor.

blah blah blah diet blah blah blah exercise yada yada yada be healthy yada yada think positive blah blah blah bor-ing.

and finally keep on being awesome (which shouldn't be too hard).

happy new year everyone, and thanks for reading!

  15. Nice stats! Congratulations! :)

    I think your resolutions are great, too. I am keeping mine private this year, but I am glad you shared yours. Reading other people's resolutions makes me want to work harder to accomplish mine, like we're in it as a team. Lol.

  29. I'm reading this post and see that you're a Stern fan. I was a major fan for years until I didn't have the long commute and then he wen to Sirus. I wish he were still on regular radio.

    I did just finish the Artie book though.
