Comments: I didn't keep this updated during the year so will keep this short. This was a good year for the site in terms of income. It was also a pretty busy year. In addition to keeping the Who's Moving Where page current, I wrote several book reviews and overhauled the pages about agents and how to find them. I also added and updated a number of other pages, including most notably some materials from the new (third) edition of my Complete Idiot's Guide. For a complete rundown, see the What's New page.

Next steps: I'm not sure about my plans for 2009. I know I will update the pages that list children's book awards with this year's winners. I have ideas about various other things. Suggestions are always welcome.
