Yesterday I wondered if the last batch of submissions to the group writing project might be the last ones, but I was wrong. A few more people came through with their own lessons learned, and special props go to Shawn Hessinger of bootstrapme.com for writing 10 posts! Shawn alone raised $50 with his posts, which I’m happily giving to charity.
Although the deadline passed yesterday, if you write a post for the group writing project and send me an email this week I’ll sneak it in and link appropriately to you. So you still have time to reflect, wonder, write and promote. Happy holidays.

- Francie Stirling learned that she’s behind the curve when it comes to blogging but catching up fast. And rightfully so, Francie questions why people say blogging will peak in 2007 when so many people she talks to don’t even get it yet. I don’t know when blogging will peak. Who cares? It’s fun. It works.
- Sheila presents 10 Things I Learned in 2006. A poignant, personal list. Hits home for me on a couple fronts. Thank you Sheila.
- Jeff Kinsey reflects on the brilliance of the P&Q example. Now I’ll have to go find out what the P&Q example is…
