I decided to write a piece reflecting on my 2016 goals. Looking back over my previous monthly targets, I’m very impressed with myself. Last year was the first time EVER that I wrote out some Overall Goals and then broke them down into more manageable monthly lists. Here’s my 2016 Goals reflection:
Fully Accomplished Goal: The Journal Booklet.
I’m so happy I’ve completed this project and it’s up for sale as a digital download in my ETSY shop. For those who aren’t sure what I’m taking about, I wrote an entire blog post / advertisement for it here.
Of the other pieces of nonfiction I was also working on, I’m farther on some of them than others. The Genealogy Workbook has been mostly written up, but I need to check what else is needed. The Bobbin Lace Workbook…my shameful neglected project….As I mentioned in the January 2017 Goals Update post, I will be dedicating my monthly craft meeting to working on it. The Recipe Book is coming along nicely. All that recipes I have left are complicated ones that I’ve been avoiding. And I’ve also run out of excuses.
eBay and Amazon have been amazing for side hustle money. I sold off excess ring planners and sold most of the Mead OrganizHer Shopping Companions (aka Mini Flexes) for a profit. The selling of the Mini Flexes was a joke experiment at first, but then the joke was on me. I still can’t believe I sold 34 of them. My ETSY shop. Well, ETSY hasn’t brought in any sales. I’m disappointed, but we’ll see how the next couple of months go. If Amazon Handmade works out, my ETSY shop may go bye-bye.
The blog has been fairly consistent. I wrote 103 blog posts this year, compared to 90 from 2015. YouTube has been a fun outlet for me, despite not filming very much in the last few months.
# of Recipes Written in 2016: 31.
# of Blog Posts Written in 2016: 103 (90 in 2015).
# of YouTube Videos Filmed in 2016: 51 (51 also in 2015).
I can’t wait to see how things go this year. What does everyone else have lined up for 2017?
