My last two posts were all about me, so I wanted to switch gears and wish a Happy New Year to all of the local Howard County bloggers and other local media mavens it’s been my privilege to read and (in many cases) meet:

To 53 Beers on Tap: May your blog overflow with comments, none of which need to be deleted.

To Child Psych: May your diagnoses be perceptive and your treatments efficacious.

To Chris Bachmann: May your servers always stay up, and your center progress.

To Columbia 2.0: May your town center become vibrant, and your opponents’ petitions and lawsuits be rejected.

To Do I Amuse You: May your tweets always be amusing, and your screenplays green-lighted.

To HoCo Matt: May you be happy even if you decide not to become HoCo Matt for real.

To HoCoMoJo: May your mobs always be flash and your videos very viewed.

To HoCo Politico: May your business be successful, and your village well-planned.

To HoCo Rising: May you become more than “just a blogger.”

To HowChow: May you find more delicious treats in unexpected places.

To Hometown Columbia: May your media always be social, and your generation generative.

To all the local Patches: May your stories be hyper-local and your ventures hyper-successful.

To Sarah Says: May your CSA deliveries be scrumptious and your sidewalks always paved.

To Wordbones: May your projects be completed on schedule and your buildings be fully leased.

To other local bloggers whom I might have inadvertently omitted: Best wishes to you too for the coming year, in both your blogging life and your rest-of-life life.

Hey, what about those of us who get our points across in 140 characters or less?

Happy New Year to you too, of course! (Beg pardon for the omission, I just have not had time to keep up with Twitter, whether reading tweets or posting them.)

Okay, I am down with that.

Thanks, Hecker! Happy new year to you!

Speaking for all of the HoCo Patches, I say thanks Frank!
