It is that time of the year where I look back and ponder. As I had foreseen, 2009 was really a great year (at least professionally but that’s another story). If my skills improved a lot in 2008 they continued to do so in 2009. I got to play a great deal with Papervision3D (roar4milk, Holiday Humanoes) and I got to modify my project workflow a lot too (I plan to make a presentation on that this year).
In numbers, I got to write 62 posts ( a bit less than once a week) and got 478 comments since September 2008. As for traffic, I am now getting 25 000 visitors a month, this is 10k less than the goal I set myself a year ago, but I don’t think it is so bad; my traffic is still growing steadily month after month. I did not write another article for InsideRIA like I wanted to, but I wrote 2 that got printed in FFDMag ( one of those I intended for InsideRIA but someone wrote on Google Analytics for Flash before me). What I am really proud of is that I got to give 2 presentations; one online and one in person at the Montreal Flash User Group. This is something I want to do more in 2010, 3 or 4 speaking engagements would be really nice. I already got an article nearly done so if I could get 1 or 2 more I would be happy. Lastly, I my traffic could increase to 35k visitors a month I think that would be enough for me. While we are at this, if I could be part of writing a book on ActionScript, that would just be the craziest.
Anyway, what I wish for the coming year is that I keep doing what I am doing. If I keep up the good work, good things will come my way, as simple as that, it worked fine in the past and I am pretty sure it will stay that way, naïvely. Blogging is all about keeping doing it.
May 2010 be as good for all of us as 2009 was good for me. Happy new year!
