January is upon us again. Finally got rid of the turkey now is the time to look forward and set some goals to see what great changes we can make happen this Year. Here are some of my online New Years Resolutions.
Write at least two posts a week. The topics will be on all sorts of development such as php, jquery, iphone. Also I’ll occasionally drift into SEO and general website need to knows.
Design a new theme for this blog. My smashing magazine book should come in very handy for that task. This is going to be quite a learning curve for me as lets say my artisitic skills are somewhat dormant.
Currently there are no people signed up to the feed therefore the goal by the end of the Year is to get 50 people signed up. I suppose I could get my family to sign up to accomplish that one. Only joking, it could get quite embarrassing to tell them to behave in the comments section.
Develop an app and get it published / approved in the app store. 2009 was the Year I got into the macworld. I got a mac, iphone with the idea that I would develop for the iphone. This started slowly so 2010 is the Year to get the app developed and published. Anyone fancy yet another todo app.
Increase revenue by 20%. This isn’t going to pay for an island in the Carribean but it’s a target and will give me something to strive for. The eagle eyed viewers will notice there’s no adsense on this blog but I do use it on one of my other sites. Any tools, tips, tricks I find along the way I’ll blog about to share my new found knowledge and help everyone get some pennies for server costs.
4. Social Networking:
Contribute to the online conversation. I’ve been lurking for far too long. I’ve got about fifty subscriptions in my Google reader and regularly read great posts that I think I could add to the conversation by leaving a comment. The usual thought is great post, I must leave a comment. OK I’ll do it later when I have a bit more time. As you probably guessed that rarely happens.
This brings me onto another personal project where I generate a page on the blog which will show all my flickr, tweets etc etc. I saw this done on someones blog and it was a nice way to bring everything together. I can’t remember the site but will try and find the link to thank for the inspiration.
2010 – The Year of doing
Here’s my commitment noted in history. My progress will be documented on here. Hope you all have a very productive 2010.
