34 Years In: 12 Months In Review

Back To Writing

This weekend I turn 34. Yes, I know its not that old but yet with three kids you really need to add 15 to it.

In the past few years I have done my previous year review. Before looking ahead in life we must look back and see what we overcome to understand that future is wide open.

This time last year some of my goals were:

  • I plan on taking on Matt Cutts 30 Days challenge┬ástarting September 1st.
  • Hopefully a big announcement from Dayton WordPress…if everything works out.
  • Try and present at more WordCamps.
  • More importantly now that we have a ‘home’ its time to spend more time with the family.

Let’s see I am happy to say that the biggest one on the list was accomplished. New home with my growing family. While stressful – its great to come home to…my home.

The next on the list was presenting at more WordCamps.

Hell yeah I have. In the past 12 months I spoke at North Canton for the second time, Columbus, Ann Arbor (In October) then was…wait for it…and Dayton. Yeah, that big announcement was Dayton having its first WordCamp. A smashing success if I do say so myself. We ended up having over 150 attendees and a great lineup of speakers. While it took me a few weeks to recover I am excited for next year.

Then there was the 30 day challenge…that didn’t work out too well, if at all.

Moving forward.

The next 12 months:

  • Organize the 2nd Dayton WordCamp (and not present)
  • Release and automate side projects (more on that later)
  • Build and Engage with my network

What about you what has been your personal challenge?
