Just a few things I learned in 2007

Use pretty permalinks for your WordPress posts.

RSS is a great tool for keep up with blogs and news, but it can overwhelm you if you let it.

Google Reader is a lifesaver.

Don’t overplan or overthink what you write on a blog. Use common sense, but it is better to write something and have to edit it later.

CSS and Internet Explorer 6 will give you plenty of headaches unless you understand browser bugs.

A clean, organized desk is a stress reliever.

Write down all your passwords for your different email and web services in one spreadsheet and keep it updated.

Water is better for you than coffee.

Sleep is better for you than caffeine.

Don’t fret too much over a first draft.

    just checking you out via twitter :) and how serendipitous or coincidental or something for these: “Don’t overplan or overthink what you write on a blog. Use common sense, but it is better to write something and have to edit it later” and “Don’t fret too much over a first draft.”

    i am about to write a post about how hard it has been for me to blog the last 6 months. we’ll see if i actually finish it.
