If the theme of my 2009 was slow start, the theme for 2010 needs to be next steps.
This past year wasn’t a great one.
I was blessed with so much (some of which I will be sharing soon), but my first year of freelancing was a struggle (though I remain excited about the freedom). I made less than $20,000 and don’t have enough saved for the taxes I need to pay.
While I think I got some great clips this year, launched a promising technology community blog and was part of a new hyperlocal news site, it’s clear none of those projects are on the verge of keeping me from being tax delinquent or getting into debt.
This year was all about a start.
I started a lot of projects. I learned a lot and wrote a lot. But it certainly all moved slowly.
2010 is going to be a much better year, to be sure. It just needs to be focused on bolstering these opportunities and others. My resolutions reflect just that.
Here’s to 2010.
