Five things I learned in January

In the Joyful Jubilant Learning forum at the end of January, folks started sharing five things they learned in January. Sounded like a fun idea (and I like that it isn't a "go tag 5 more people" kind of thing) so here is my list:

  1. I learned that Google Documents are a much better remote collaboration tool than things I've tried in the past (like Writeboard, for example).

  2. I learned that version 2 of RocketPost is a big improvement over version 1, and I'm glad I bought RocketPost as a blogging tool.

  3. I learned that ice and snow really throw my city for a loop.

  4. I learned that the American Red Cross has implemented a new "Double Red Cell" donation option through which you can donate 2 units of red cells at the same time.

  5. I learned that giving 2 units of red blood cells on Thursday, then going cross-country skiing on Saturday is a recipe for a tiring day in the snow.
