  1. Happy new year!

    I’ve written down my new years resolutions at my blog, http://www.improvingtheweb.com

    Since I’ve only just started my blog, I will take your tips under consideration. I’m already planning to give away lot of things though, for example, more than 20 wordpress plugins are in development šŸ™‚

  2. Yea more cowbell! Reading for deep content takes time and focus. We all probably needed this prodding.

    Thanks for all the post in this article they are definitely worth “more cowbell”.

  3. To start each day off right and get inspired, every morning I awaken and say “Carpe Diem” which means “seize the day,” but I think I’ll replace that with “more cowbell.”

    More cowbell, indeed!

  4. What you say about generosity is very true. People will equate you with “value” and when they need the service you’re providing you’ll be the first person to come to mind. As far as audacity, here’s a quote by Julia Cameron (The Artist’s Way):

    “Very often audacity, not talent makes one person an artist and another a shadow artist – hiding in the shadows, afraid to step out and expose the dream to the light, fearful that it will disintegrate to the touch.”

    Excellent resources, I’ll be coming back to these often. Thank you and happy New Year!

  5. Hi Sonia!,

    Thanks for your great post. So much to read and so little time!, I’ll definitely be coming back and reading all those great posts you have referred to in this article.

    And love the note about Generosity :). .

    Happy New Year!

    ps: @Marelisa – glad to see a fellow reader of artists way here šŸ™‚

  6. Very usefull stuff. Glad to have some great articles in one place. Especially im not long enogh with you to fully explore whole site. And now i have most valuable resources in one post. Thanks.Happy new year.

  7. Thanks for the list. That’s a lot of great advice for the new year. It seems that much of it is centered around relationships. It has become very important in the blogging world to work together. That’s a positive development. One hand washes the other works

  8. Thx for this great post, gives me lots of inspiration to start in this year. Just made a reminder to look at one of the articles at least once a day. Happy new year to all of you!

  9. I like these resolutions because they’re NOT asking me to lose twenty pounds or learn to play an instrument. At the very least they should be less painful to follow through on.

  10. Nice spin on the usual “end of year blog post” that comes up everywhere these days. Here you have an index for “how to use my blog” which is much more useful than many of the other blog posts I’ve read in the last week.

  11. Love it! Great ideas – generally, and specifically.

    I laughed at the “More Cowbell” suggestion at the end.

    Thanks for your excellent work, again.

  12. Sonia, I can’t tell you how much Copyblogger has helped me. It’s my number one go to for advice and ideas. No wonder it’s considered one of the top five most influential blogs.

  13. For 2009, for me, it’s ‘living’, rather than existing – that means, doing things because I enjoy them, not because they pay well.
    (Well, hopefully, the money will follow!)

  14. Demian, that is so lovely, thank you. Obviously all credit goes to Brian, but I try hard to keep the tradition of helpfulness and quality that he started here.

    Tstrump, damned straight, there isn’t all that much time, so here’s to living.

  15. I have starred this post and have returned to it several times. Thanks for helping me refine my writing and improving my blog.

  16. Nice collection Sonia! Thanks for sharing it. Should keep me out of trouble for awhile. It’s an ancient message we have to reinvent every day, “give and you shall receive”. Wishing you blessings in the New Year!

  17. This is definitely going into del.ic.ious under “blogging” and “personal growth”. There is so much good advice floating around the blogsphere that I don’t know where to start!

  18. Thanks for this great post Sonia.

    As a new blogger I am looking for good quality idea farms and this blog is one.

    I also have seen the bloggers I like the best so far are the ones who the most generous with content, links to other bloggers and resources. And this blog has that. Jack Humphery is another guy who goes over the top producing great content freely.

    And tonight I found a new area of generosity on your blog, that is your readers. I have have more hits from copyblogger than any other from just one comment I made I have had 9 direct hits to my blog.

    I have not made many comments in ratio to my blog posts but I think I need to be more generous in my comments and in my way support other bloggers. Maybe a 3 to 1 ratio, 3 comments on other blogs for each post I make on my blog.

    A good action plan for myself for 2009

  19. I’m loving this website. It’s great to see that you practice what you preach – there’s loads of information available free of charge. But it’s useful information – the type anybody would happily pay for.

    Thank you!

  20. Wow, Sonia … so many great resources here. I’ve bookmarked it for further reference.

    I’m pretty new to blogging, but really believe generosity and value are the key. I hadn’t heard the “cowbell” expression before, but it certainly creates a different mindset and perspective.

    Thanks for the great info!

  21. This is a great advice and I will definitely consider it when writing my articles.

    I always knew that before getting you have to give, and only if you create value you will get something valuable in return.

    I think your advide is timeless but often forgotten by most.

    I’m late on this one, but you put together a dazzling post. There is tons to read, impressive. I like how you structured the post. You just keep reading in wonder looking forward to what’s next. šŸ™‚ Happy New Year! All the best to you in 09.
