Every year I promise to hand-design beautiful holiday cards in October. That never quite works out, so I promise to at least buy some cards and send them out by my birthday in mid-December. That doesn't quite work out either, and late December is always busy with travel and a lot of client work due for the New Year, and so I end up sending out apologetic messages (like this one)
in early January. One of the biggest changes for me this year has been a real growth of my presence on the Web - so I've decided that I'd put my New Year's friends-and-family message on my site.
