I have seen posts like this floating around and then the other day I listened to Hanselminutes where Scott and Carl discussed the subject.  I figured my enthusiasm has been lacking lately and maybe this would be a good way to bump it up a notch.

I need to find a new way to get Microsoft products to learn on.  One of the clients I used to work for had been paying for my MSDN subscription.  With that gone and my current company being a miser with the developer tools I need to come up with a new plan.

The next thing I am going to work on is blogging more.  If you are going to have something to say you have to be learning.  One thing that helped when I first started blogging was to make a list of things I wanted to blog about and post the list.  I managed to cover about 80% so it served its purpose.

I am also going to get back to working on my certifications.  This isn't because I want the piece of paper, but because it will force me to study the topics.

Lastly I am going to get more involved with the development of the .NET and architecture practices within my company.

Now for the fun part.  I am going to tag some people who may or may not appreciate it: Ahsan Alam, Rolando Avila, Jason Hoekstra.  Have fun with it guys.
