Merry Christmas from my family here in Newfoundland, Canada.
This year has been a very busy yet rewarding year for me professionally and personally. After having a successful career in the information technology industry for over 25 years, I finally started several blogs, grew my online presence, experimented with SEO and released two free comprehensive guides all in the span of 12 months.
With Christmas here now is a time to reflect and to evaluate the truly important things in life. For me, I always struggle with having a balance between family and work. There is always something to do work-related but this year I found time to have a balance that brought me closer to my community and to my family. I’ve continued to volunteer in my community and to enjoy the rewards that online life has brought me.
Here’s some of the pictures that I’ve taken in the last few weeks leading up to the holiday season showing that there’s always time to sit, smile and enjoy the company of those around you. My favourite picture is the first one take on Christmas Eve when my niece was wired waiting for Santa Claus to come. I guess she didn’t expect to see me when she opened her bedroom door and walked out. The look on her face was priceless.
Thanks for all those who have made my year a success and a special thanks to my family for supporting me through the year. May you have a very safe holiday season and may your new year be more prosperous than the last.
Take care and see you in 2010.
