I took a few days off during the holidays to think about what I wanted to accomplish during 2010. 2009 was a great year, with lots of accomplishments: this blog hit 20,000 unique visitors in a month, was published in a lot of different places, and, according to lots of different sources, put together some really great content.
But my 2010 goals are about more than just this blog. They’re about my development as a PHP developer, as well as my personal life. Here are my goals for the 2010 year:
- Produce excellent content 11 times a month. My average posting rate was 3 times a week. This necessitates a lot of content generation; however, I think it’s sustainable. 11 times a month is 3 times a week with the exception of one week.
- Speak at 2 conferences and 3 user groups. As a developer, I want to burnish my speaking resume as well as share what I know with others. I have a number of excellent talk ideas, and I want to share those talks with the community.
- Publish my book by the end of the year. While I’m under contract to write a book, actually getting it finished and published will depend on me. I want to get it out by the end of 2010.
- Learn another programming language. Who doesn’t love diversity? I want to learn another language and, more importantly, bring what I learn into the PHP language.
What are your goals for 2010?
