As 2015 revs up, I can’t help but look back on the 2014 and think about all that happened, good, bad, and otherwise. There have been some successes, but mostly, I have had opportunities for . . . ahem . . . improvement. I got another year older, another pound heavier, and watched my kids get another year older too. I did accomplish many goals, however, and I am thankful for that, but I feel I might have been able to do more. Sure, I have five children and they take up a lot of time, but I’m not sure things were prioritized as they should have been.
As I look back, I am of the opinion that my resolve to #connect (see my post from January 1, 2014) may have fallen a bit shorter than I had hoped. Well, that’s okay, as I have more resolve left, and will overcome my own shortcomings.
Here are my yearly blog stats:
- 8 blog posts
- 630 views
- 21 views on my highest day (all-time is 32)
- 64 different countries (ok, that’s pretty cool to me)
- Two sites (other than Twitter, and LinkedIn) referring (needs to be better)
- 0 guest posts (ouch – need to fix this)
Not super stellar, but better than nothing, I guess. As for my personal goals, I did okay here too:
- Finished reading the entire Bible
- Renewed my PMP certification 5 months early
Sure, all of these need work. I am committed to working on them all and doing more in 2015. I know my beautiful and supporting wife will help me through it all.
Here are my goals for 2015:
- Focus on the #OneWord resolution for 2015: #Prioritize
- Read the Bible through again using the YouVersion app– this time in one year
- 24 blog posts – that’s two a month
- More than 1000 views for the year
- More than 33 views for a single day
- Readers from 65 different countries
- Four site referrals (double 2014)
- Be a guest blogger for at least one site
So, there it is, my personal goals for 2015. Feel free to hold me accountable and encourage me as I am sure that I’ll need both at some point. As a “hobby blogger” sometimes, things can get pushed aside accidentally.
If you have a topic you’d like to read an opinion about or to gain some additional perspective on, please let me know. I would love to write on things that matter to you most. I wish you a happy and prosperous new year!
