So January is now behind us and was a month full of interesting posts and activity in the blogosphere.
At the beginning of the month, as part of the Zero to Hero event, I set myself some goals for the year, lets see how I’ve done after on month of refocused blogging.
- Post at least one substantial post per week.
Contribute a substantive article to another venue each month (minimum).
- Build my stats back up to at least my 2012 levels, if not better.
Ok, two out of three goals met.
I have managed to write more than one “real” post most weeks and plenty of other content through the month. Of the 31 days in January I posted on 15 of them, some times just a simple haiku for Rob’s Genre Haiku Challenge, others the seed that germinated into my Lord of the Rings project. I also penned a few entries in the weekly contest over at The Speakeasy.
Unfortunately I haven’t contributed any significant content to anyplace else. So that goal needs some work.
Now it is too early to tell but since my January stats are nearly a match for January ’13… Yeah, I think I can meet this goal if I keep things moving.
I’ve gotten lots of great feedback on what I wrote last month and I’ve met a number of great new bloggers. So all in all the year is off to a terrific start.
For those of you following along we still have places in this month’s installment of the haiku project. Feel free to join in!
