As we say good bye to 2009, and look ahead to 2010, I am looking at what I did right in this past year, what I didn’t accomplish, and what I want to do in the New Year.
One of the best things I did in 2009 was to re-focus: I sold a few sites that no longer fit my long term plans, and finally took action on my desire to blog about my internet journey and started this very blog.
There are places where I took steps in the right direction, but I need to make a better effort to take full advantage, which is what I’ll be doing in 2010: twitter, list building (and nurturing), etc.
Setting goals is easy: working consistently towards achieving them is not. So, my main goal for the New Year is to be more consistent towards achieving these goals…
This is one of my biggest struggles, and not because I don’t know what to write about, but because I panic if someone else posted similar content, and then struggle to make myself post mine anyway. I’ll have to work hard on this one, but I am sure I’ll make it happen.
Again, I know exactly how do get links, but it’s a matter of doing it consistently. In the past couple of months I learned to value of guest blogging for link building, as well as concentrated effort to build links to a specific blog post. Seeing those results encourages me to continue even when it feels like a lot of work.
Get Back Into PPC
I used to do very well with PPC a while ago, but some life circumstances made it hard to do it properly for the past 2 years. I am planning to revisit the Campaign Blasts method and get back into it.
2010 will also be the year of doing case studies. After all, my blog is about my online journey, and I’d like to share with you, my readers how I do things and the results I get. That way, we can all learn from my mistakes and victories.
I am very excited about the New Year! I feel good about my plans, and I am encouraged to succeed, especially with the help of my mastermind group.
Have you made plans for the upcoming year? Feel free to share them below.
