In With the New (2009)

Yesterday, we looked at 2008 here at Scouting News, now to the future!

“Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true.” ~ Lord Alfred Tennyson

A few days ago, I made a request to see what Scouting News readers had planned for 2009, here are the responses I received via twitter (@ScoutingNews):

Scoutmaster Jerry (@smjerry) of The Scoutmaster Minute, replied, “first continue to run a Quality program. Read More. Work with 1st year Scouts on skills, especially cold weather camping.”

westybsa (@westybsa) replied, “Hopefully i will get to go to our councils new high adventure based in Alaska”. I’m assuming (I know dangerous) that @westybsa is referring to the new Denali High Adventure Scout Base (DHASB) in Alaska.

Feel free to leave your 2009 Scouting Resolutions, Goals, and Plans down in the comments.

What will 2009 hold for Scouting News?
I’d love to say that in 2009 Scouting News will continue on this great upward path, however that would be a tad irresponsible. I am the main drive behind Scouting News and Missing Arrow Publishing, and for those that don’t know I am in the National Guard and have received deployment orders for early 2009. While it will be a challenge, I was deployed previously in 2006, and look forward to another opportunity to serve for my Country.

With that in mind, I still plan on growing Scouting News, however there may be some road bumps along the way, since my priorities will have to shift.

2009 Scouting News Goals:
1) One new contest a month!
2) One new featured article a month!
3) One article per day (at least)
4) Find Guest Authors / work harder on soliciting articles from outside sources.
5) Find ways to incorporate Twitter (@ScoutingNews) more!
6) Establish a mobile version of Scouting News (for cell phone users)

Is there anything you’d like to see here on Scouting News in 2009? Leave a comment or shoot me a tweet (@ScoutingNews)

No matter what you have planned in 2009, may the New Year bring you good health, great friendships, and awesome Scouting experiences!
