It’s the start of a new year and that means it’s the formation of new goals.
Last year was huge – personally and professionally – but I’m already looking forward. Here are just a few of my resolutions, if you will, for 2014.
(For a full list, check out this article on my family blog.)
I’ve really enjoyed the times I’ve been able to share what I’ve discovered online. I’ve also grown to like writing a bit over the past year, so I want to continue to boost my skills and comfort writing in 2014.
While most of what I’ve designed and developed recently can be found on the FliteHaus.com site, I want to be able to explain my part and give my take on the project in my own words.
I also want to do a bit of a design update on the site as well, bolstering the responsive-ness and cleaning up the site structure.
Certainly, a touch of additional income would always be nice, but I want to find other ways to be creative. Putting my work out there for others to judge (each purchase is a vote, after all) will give me the opportunity to look at my work in a different way. Each piece will be fairly quick to create so I will get almost instant feedback.
Etsy will give me the freedom to offer customizable content with a short deadline turn-around. TurboSquid lets me get more comfortable with 3D design. And PhotoDune will allow me to get an idea of where I stand with my photography ability.
I keep teasing this in my blog articles, but I’ve yet to create more than a couple of fairly awkward videos. In 2014, I will set my sights on creating a few more of these videos. I want to create at least one each month.
While I have a few other goals – some not web related – I think that these will help me become more comfortable “putting myself out there”. Join me for lots of great things happening in 2014!
