As we enter the new year, I’d like to thank all of you who read this blog and especially those who have contributed with comments, suggestions and knowledge.
As I was looking back over the last year’s entries on Water Ways, I realized that we stayed pretty serious throughout the year — with occasional exceptions, such as “Amusing Monday.” While I don’t subscribe to formal New Year’s resolutions, I’d like to make sure we don’t get too bogged down in heavy issues in the year ahead.
Of course, I’ll continue to explore serious water-related issues, but I would like to add some shorter, lighter touches along the way. And I’d like you to think of this blog when you encounter any water-related subjects. Maybe you’ll hear a piece of music or see some artwork that could be shared online. Maybe you’ll see or take a great photograph you’d like to share. Maybe it will be a special quote, poem or joke. Send it to me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll add a new entry with credit to you, unless you choose to remain anonymous.
I enjoy writing this blog, and I hope more of you will find a way to join the conversation in the coming year. If you can’t comment online, even with a pseudonym, feel free to write me directly. I take all comments to heart.
Let me also take a moment to remind you that you can receive an e-mail each time a new blog entry is posted by putting your e-mail address into the e-mail notification form in the right column. Similarly, you can sign up for the RSS feed. If you follow me on Twitter, you will find links to many of the blog entries as well as interesting news items that I find in the online world.
If you are interested in a particular item and would like to follow all the related comments, you can sign up for an e-mail notice at the bottom of any comments section. You will get an e-mail each time a new comment is posted for that item alone.
Thanks again for reading, and I hope everyone has a great 2011.
