Day 24: 365 days of blogging

For many people, the new year brings with it resolutions of better time management, improving your fitness, and blogging regularly.

If one of your resolutions is to create a blogging habit, Mickey Mellen offers helpful advice in his 365 days of blogging post.

I’m impressed he finished a year of blogging every day!

Wishing you the best for the holidays.
