To myself (and to you), for 2012 (and beyond), on this blog (and beyond):
Write for yourself, not for an audience. Do not censor yourself in anticipation of future "platform" issues. Swear, if swearing is called for. Be frivolous, if frivolity is invited. Break rules. Write what you want, when you want. Write things worth reading. Write things that make you think. Write things with no simple answers. Talk to people to whom you want to talk. Comment on the blogs that interest you. Talk to everyone...or talk to no one. You owe nothing to anyone except to yourself, as a writer, as a blogger.
Above all things stay true to yourself.
