Goals For The New Year

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — TheLinuxBlog.com at 9:34 pm on Wednesday, January 6, 2010

As the new year has turned, I thought it would be a good time to go back and look at my goals for 2009. To be honest they were pretty modest and I’d pretty much forgotten what they were, despite this fact I still managed to get 4 out of the 6 done. Getting certified never happened, but I feel like I became more qualified, which is all that matters right? Hah. I blame the CD ripping on streaming media services like Pandora, Grooveshark and last.fm which pretty much eliminated my need to rip the CD’s. So all in all I guess it was a productive year.

I’m still working on my technical related goals for this coming year, I don’t really know what to put on the list yet, since I’ve found that goals will change as time goes on. For example, I set up my PBX in November of 09 which was about 11 months after I set the goal that I had forgotten about. Maybe I’ll roll the two I did not accomplish in 2009 over, add a the goals of getting more organized and reducing the amount of equipment I have. Yea, those seem reasonable for now.

Happy new year!

Linux Blog new year roundup

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — TheLinuxBlog.com at 10:16 pm on Monday, December 31, 2007

I’d just like to say I’ve been busy over the past week or two with some projects at work and with the holiday season so I haven’t had the time to dedicated to this blog.

Its been a good year at the Linux Blog, I’ve increased traffic since I’ve started and have been beginning to see more activity with comments. I have a couple of goals for the upcoming year.

Firstly I’d like to make some money with Google ads. This isn’t specifically related to the Linux Blog but every little counts. I want to do this because I think that this site has some value to those that use it and I would like to be rewarded for my hard work.

Another goal I have is to write more posts than I did this year. It shouldn’t be hard to do since I stopped writing for a long time in 2007. From about Jan to July. I have a long list of posts to write but I need to know what topics people want to read about.

I have a list of articles to write for the Shell Scripting Sundays column but haven’t got enough ideas for the year yet. I may be able to get a few more if I split some of the more intense ones up but I’d rather keep them simple. If any one has any ideas for articles please let me know.

Thats going to be all for this year, I hope you enjoyed reading my blog and continue to visit me in the new year. For those that do

Happy New Year!
