This month was a busy one. I spent the first two weeks of 2010 knocking off several freelance writing projects. I celebrated my birthday, hosted Taipei’s first Tweetup, and barely had any time to blog. It was a great start to a new year. Here are a few links to my web contributions this month and some links to a few special bloggers out there I’d like to commend for their hard work and dedication to their craft.
In Travel News…
