Every year for the past 3 years, I’ve tracked my goals on a spreadsheet. This is my first time sharing specifics from the spreadsheet. I’m creating more specific goals for 2019, though (for example, my reading goals aren’t just tied to a total number of books, but types of reading).
35 Blog Posts (goal was 25)
23 Books Read (goal was 15) – I wasn’t expecting to surpass this one by much. I attribute it to listening to Reading Glasses podcast and being more inspired to read! – Check back for my upcoming post, “My Year In Books – 2018.”
4 WordPress Trac Tickets Opened – The goal is to start contributing/submitting patches in 2019. I’m getting familiar with trac, though.
14 Teaching Sessions/Meetups/Talks (1 WordCamp talk)
2 Published Articles (The Compass Magazine, Travel Insider Report)
560.23% Increase in Blog Views Per Month (from 88.55/mo average in 2017 to 584.58/mo average in 2018) – This one I was not expecting at all and wasn’t even going to track until I had 3 months that exceeded 1,000 visits.
