Last week marked my 1-year anniversary of starting my own personal blog. Since I’ve actually stuck with it and kept somewhat of a regular schedule, I now have a lot to look back on. Thanks to all of you who have read, commented, and linked to my blog this year.
When I started my new blog, I set out with only a couple of specific goals:
- Write about subjects that interest me, such as marketing, technology, social media, travel, music
- Write at least one post per month.
As for the first goal, this one was easy. I find a lot of interesting things on the web and I like to stay current on the newest social media trends. I didn’t write much about music (besides recapping the concerts I’ve attended), but maybe I’ll do more with that in the next 12 months.
With 34 posts under my belt, goal number two was easily met.
So what were my favorite posts?
My personal favorite (mainly because it includes a strong reference to the movie Caddyshack) was my short blog on Klout, the new service that measures online “influence.”
My most visited post was written about what we can learn from the Chilean miner rescue from a leadership standpoint.
So where will the next year take me? Who knows. I just hope you’re able to come along for the ride.
