First, Happy 2009! May it be a joyous and fruitful year for you all.

A hard decision had to be made, but I will not be continuing the BAM Challenge into 2009. I hope you have had fun participating. I am leaving the site up so that others can use it as a resource. Please also continue adding suggestions in the comments section as you think of them!

But not to leave you hanging, here’s a list of 12 topics you can use to continue on with your own BAM Challenge if you so desire. Thank you for joining me in this fun exercise!

  1. New
  2. First
  3. Luck
  4. Self
  5. Travel
  6. Conflict
  7. Classic
  8. Season
  9. Food
  10. Environment
  11. Security
  12. Balance

Also, we had one last suggestion from Nanci in honor of President-elect Barack Obama: Change. Linda Dyndiuk compiled a great list on this very topic for September’s challenge, and revisiting previous topics are always encouraged!

Thank you, again, for your enthusiasm and participation!
