Breaking up for the holidays

It’s almost certainly going to be very quiet on this blog over the next week or so. Christmas is fast approaching, and with it the opportunity to catch up with old friends and spend quality time with the family. The break also gives me time to take a rest after a rewarding but busy year before getting back into the business of chasing work once things pick up again in the New Year.

I’m hoping to find the time to pursue a few plans to develop this blog too, so when you check back in January there might well be some fresh perspectives. Soon after everything clicks back into gear come the News Rewired and NUJ New Ways to Make Journalism Pay events, which should help to start the year off on a practical note.

Until January then, Merry Christmas to all readers, especially the small but dedicated band of regulars. Here’s to a positive 2010.
