For me, the week between Christmas and the New Year is a time for reflection, and to begin making plans for the year ahead. In fact, many bloggers seem to be doing the same thing, offering reviews and statistics for 2007 and unveiling their plans for 2008.
Have you begun to consider your blogging plans and aspirations for 2008? If so, what will you be doing in the new year to achieve this?
Blogger Buster in review
As many of you will realize, Blogger Buster is relatively young in the field of blogs about blogging. Being only six months old, I have very little statistics to offer you yet regarding subscribers, page views and revenue, which are factors most of the popular blogs are concerned about in their annual reviews.
So far such statustics have been of little importance to me. Of course I would love for Blogger Buster to become as popular as Problogger or John Chow's blogs, though such popularity takes time and a heck of a lot of effort to achieve!
No, the thing which I have enjoyed the most about this year of blogging has been this:
I have loved every minute of it!
In my opinion, blogging is pointless unless you enjoy what you do and the subject you write about. So in 2008, I plan to continue blogging about this subject I love, helping others along the way and creating some great Blogger templates which I hope you will all love too.
My plans for 2008
Like many other bloggers, I am now creating a "blogging plan" for the year ahead and will start the new year as I mean to go on.
After reviewing my most popular posts, it seems to me that the longer tutorials and Blogger templates seem to attract the most attention, so these are features which I will develop more fully in the months ahead. You can expect to see some series' of tutorials, plus some new and interesting templates unveiled soon, with a spattering of blogger news in between. I'm also considering weekly (or monthly) reviews of useful resources and interesting posts from around the bloggosphere to help you all discover other interesting sites you may have missed.
I've also been working on some other projects recently, one of which I will unveil to you on New Year's day that I think you may all find rather interesting...
Your plans for 2008?
Have you posted a review of the year, or your blogging plans for the year ahead? If so, please leave me a comment below to tell me about this. I would love to read how others will use their blogs in the year ahead, or even if you plan to leave things exactly the way they are!
I hope you have all really enjoyed the Christmas festivities and look forward to a new year of blogging with Blogger. Best wishes to you all, and a Happy New Year!
