As I look back on 2016 and the almost one year anniversary of this blog, I am of course reflecting on how the first year went.


  1. I’m lucky if I post once a month.  If the content was awesome, I would be more OK with that.
  2. My earlier posts involved more analysis and resonated more.  I perceive they were better”quality.”
  3. I’ve read lots of other folks’ blogs, and I’ve hesitated to either comment or reach out because I’m not psyched enough about the content I’ve created this far.
  4. Starting a blog and building an audience is a sloooooooow process.  Let’s just say that I have a lot of room for improvement.

My goals for 2017 are pretty simple:

  1. I’m not planning to pump out lots of quantity.  That means I want to improve the “quality” of the content that I’m writing.  More data.  More insight.  More analysis.
  2. Reach out to other members of the blogging community for idea exchange.
  3. Find ways to get in front of other bloggers’ audiences (e.g., guest post, etc.)

    Let’s see how I do… Happy New Year, everyone.

    Any specific goals on your mind for the new year?
