So what did I actually learn?
HTML fancies and blogging tricks:
I am still chasing HTML tricks that'll help me improve my blog design and connectivity and am finally going to learn to use a sewing machine this year. That just opens up a whole new world of New Tricks, including making Dear Boy a pair of shorts that he can actually wear (the 'can actually wear' part is the important bit of that goal).
Did you teach yourself any New Tricks in 2013? Anything you want to learn in 2014?
