Sites I Can't Live Without

So, on TechCrunch posted their list of 2009: Products I Can't Live Without.  I decided to evaluate websites that I visit on a regular basis and wouldn't know what to do if they didn't exist. 
  • Google - do I have to explain this?
  • Facebook - connecting with old friends and relatives.
  • LinkedIn - business networking as well as understanding people's background.
  • Google Docs - helpful sharing documents with people.
  • Google Reader - a MUST have for reading blogs. 
  • Google Analytics - great for understanding web traffic.
  • Meetup - helpful to find new clubs around NYC.
  • Wikipedia - great in researching/learning about things.
  • ****** -  my stock trading account.
  • ****** - my banking account. 
  • WSJ  - I love reading business and finance news.
  • Hulu - great way to catch up on TV shows I miss.
  • Twitter - starting to become a big user of this service. Need some more followers --hint, hint.
  • booksmoothie - finding cheap books online (shameless plug)

First Post of 2009

My first post of 2009. I have been quite negligent about my blog for the last few months of 2008. I hope that I will be able to post a little more regularly even if that just means one post per month. 

Now since it is the beginning of the new year,  I'm listing out the planned changes that will occur this year.
  • Love Life: I'll be getting married during the second half of the year. It will be an exciting day.
  • Health: Shed a few extra pounds, hopefully in time for the wedding.
  • Job/Financially: Something will happen in this area. Not exactly sure what, but definitely a big change is needed. 
There is always going to be unexpected events that will occur during the course of the year, and plans always will need to be refocused.
