Happy New Year! Even though we haven’t made it to the blog’s anniversary yet, I’m pretty happy that we’ve hit 2011 and we’re still going.

As we finish the holiday season and start the new year, it does seem an appropriate time for reflection. I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. Most resolutions I have witnessed or made myself seem either overly ambitious or doomed. (I could be wrong, but most resolutions in my experience are proposals to radically alter some part of someone’s life in a very rigid and immediate way – such as going from zero to sixty on an exercise regimen or embarking on a radical, restrictive diet.) What I will issue to myself are challenges. On that note, here are some goals I will strive for this year that are related to the blog.

1. I will visit 10 new cemeteries that I have never visited before.
2. I will keep up with a selected number of related blogs (Cleveland history blogs, Graveyard Rabbit blogs) to inform my own writing.
3. I will take 25 photography trips this year (counting each individual cemetery on a multi-stop photography tour as “trip.”)
4. I will write at least 350 posts for this blog.
5. I will read more on the history of Cleveland and the symbolism and and history of cemeteries – book and blog recommendations are always welcome!
