2010: Grouvia’s Golden Year

The Year 2010 has arrived, and not a moment too soon.  I was so over the last decade.

This is a milestone year for me.  This year represents my 50th year on this planet, and I intend to make the most of it.

Grouvia will come alive this year.  I spent almost all of 2009 working on planning, building, and worrying about it, which I admit was way too much time.  Now it’s showtime.  This thing has to make it or break it by the end of June or I’m going to start implementing Plan B.

My stepson graduates from college this year.  Fly little birdie, fly!!!  That means now we get to start paying off the debt, instead of just racking it up.  Woo hoo!  At least we get a trip to Miami out of it.

My husband’s 50th birthday is also this year, and he’s bugging me to go somewhere fun for our combined birthdays.  We are hoping to somehow find the $ to take a trip to Spain.  We are taking donations — please email me if you wish to contribute.

I’m going to run my first half-marathon in May.  Holy cow that is a scary thought.  But even if I have to walk half of it I’m going to do it.

Obviously the big one for me (and for this blog) is Grouvia.  This project has been in the planning stages since 2006.  We gave ourselves five years to “make it big” but I believe that it needs to be successful before it can grow.

What do I mean by “successful”?  People like it, use it, find it valuable, and tell their friends.  Nobody hates it or thinks it’s stupid.  As long as I know that by the end of June, I know we’ll be golden.  Then I’ll have 18 months to monetize it and market the hell out of it.  Good plan right?  Yeah.

Yup, 2010 is an important year.  And I’m ready for it.

Happy Thanksgiving

No post this week.  I’m taking the week off in honor of… um… the turkey that was beheaded on camera behind Sarah Palin in an interview last year after she and Sen. McCain lost the election.  Ew.

Happy Thanksgiving!
