blogspot hit counter

I'm absolutely terrible at blogging. I've had many blogs before this one, and they always end up the same. Slowly, posting slips and slips until it is essentially non-existent. Fortunately, those blogs really didn't have readers, so I never felt bad about not posting. However, with this blog, I do feel terrible as I know that I definitely have readers that want to know what's going on with Threads for Teens. One of my New Years Resolutions is to update this blog more. I will do it!

First off, I hope everybody has been well since the last time I updated. Second off, a lot of CRAZY things have been happening. I cannot wait to announce them officially on the blog. I promise, readers, you guys will be the first to know. In general news, lately I have been sending out a ton a letters in hopes of getting new donors for Threads for Teens. As of today, I know that the batch of about 50 I sent was successful. I'm pretty sure that Threads has a new donor! This place is great. I will give more news on that as more comes available to me.

Secondly, I entered en essay contest called "The Santa Rosa Violet Richardson Soroptimist Award" and won! I just got the letter in the mail. What this consists of is a $250 donation to Threads and I get to go to a luncheon in march. Also, my entry will be forwarded on to the regional level. That really made my day, along with a couple of other Threads for Teens related happenings. Definitely, this new year has brought in a lot of good.

Lastly, I have been reading a really good book lately called "Goals" by Brian Tracy. It has really helped me to put pin-point what I want to accomplish with my life and how to achieve those goals. The main thing that I have learned is to write down your goals! If you do that, you are much more likely to achieve them.

Well, I will blog soon!
