My good friend Leslie told me this year while describing her goals for the new year that calling them "New Year's Resolutions" is essentially equivalent to saying they're things you don't plan on actually doing. That resonated with me as most New Year's Resolutions seem to be vague nods at the things we should be doing but aren't likely to take up with consistency. In that spirit, I'd like to lay down a few tangible goals for Fresh Greens in 2009 that come year's end, hopefully will have fared better than the multitude of exercise-mores and read-more-classics.
- Launch the Fresh Greens Podcast. Starting in February, Fresh Greens will diversify it's media content with monthly audio and video podcasts. These productions will cover local sustainable happenings from a journalistic perspective, featuring interviews of local government officials and community leaders.
- Highlight weekly events in the local sustainable community. Coming soon on Tuesdays, look for a column discussing events and volunteer opportunities in Central OK.
- Revamp our front page design. This is a more long term goal that will hopefully take shape in the summer.
These are the projects I will be working on in the coming months along with my own personal and professional goals. I'd love to hear what you would like to see accomplished in your own life, the life of this blog, or the life of our community in the coming year. Happy New Year, and good luck to us all.
