October has been a big month for me. I’ve tried to take my blogging, coding, and designing skills to the next level, and I think I’ve accomplished this. I hit quite a few goals, blogged on a regular basis, and learned a lot about creating a better blog with valuable content in the last month. I’ve learned more in one month than in the last four years.
A few weeks ago, in ” title=”WordPress Custom Fields: Introduction”> WordPress custom fields tutorial series. So far, I think it’s going well. I hope my readers are enjoying it because I’m enjoying learning new things.
This should be an interesting series to watch. I would always appreciate feedback on what anyone would like to see done with custom fields. They’re such a powerful, but rarely used, feature of WordPress. My goal is to release at least one (possibly two, if I have the time to do all the testing) post in the series each week until the topic is pretty much exhausted. Afterward, I plan to release a free e-book compiling all of the information in one spot.
Another goal I wanted to accomplish was creating more ” title=”Magtastic: WordPress Theme”> Magtastic and ” title=”Themes List: WordPress Plugins”> Themes List. It give WordPress theme designers a simple way of listing their themes on one convenient page. There’s still a lot that can be done with it, and I look forward to continuing its development.
Another feature I’ve been hosting here is the Weekly Roundup. Weeks ” title=”Weekly Roundup #2″> 2, and ” title=”WordPress Custom Fields: Introduction”> WordPress custom fields tutorial series.
There’s still a lot of ground to cover in this series, and I have a few ideas ready to share in the coming weeks.
This is something I started on a few weeks ago, but haven’t pieced it all together yet. The idea behind it was that I wanted to easily share daily pictures with my family over the next year (I’m currently living in South Korea). I’ve put together some neat concepts for this tutorial and can’t wait to finish the work on it.
This will be tougher than it was in October because I now have fair amount of regular subscribers. But, I’m up for the challenge.
This is a fairly lofty goal for me. I think it’s still within reason though.
I don’t want to set a price tag or percentage increase on this yet because I’m at a point where I don’t want to set definite earnings goals. I want to release quality content first, then see what kind of money I can make.
November goals set. I’m ready to see how well I do with concrete monthly goals.
Why set goals? The simple answer is that it challenges me. It not only challenges me as a blogger, designer, and coder, but as a person. I strongly believe that we can only become successful if we push ourselves to success, and well thought-out planning always helps.
