So long 2010, Welcome 2011

firefoworksFirst of all, let me wish you a happy holidays and advanced wishes for the wonderful new year!

While we are so busy with our work and other stuff, the clock never stopped ticking and yet another year has passed away in-front of our eyes. To compensate this, the Time (not that Time!) has gifted us a brand new year - 2011. So, lets start live in the present than worry about the past.

Enough of philosophies and preaching. Lets come to the point of this post. That is, sharing my stats, as I did on last year.

Last year resolutions:

Last year I had three resolutions.

  • Build a better blog - Which, I think, is accomplished by looking at the stats below. But, the mission does not end here. :)
  • Learn a new language (Scala, Python) - unfortunately, this one is still open. But, I did learn new (markup) languages after joining PayPal. But still, Scala is in my mind always.
  • Learn photography and buy a DSLR - Done. Bought one DSLR and learnt some basics of photography. But a long way to go. Here are some clicks for you: Photos 1 , Photos 2 and Flickr.

New year resolutions for 2011:

Time to set some new goals.

  • To release the new website that I'm currently working on.
  • To learn a new language (Rails and Scala are in, as of now).
  • To network with more and more people in my field.

I think three is enough. So, what are your resolutions? Do share it in comments and leave a link to your blog post.
