2009 is drawing to a close in a week. I wanted to share my thoughts on posts and events that shaped my life in 2009.
As I close the year myself, I’ve dived into the Mootools world again. It’s a wonderful place to be, there’re so many great people working on it and it’s really quite incredible to be apart of that community. I was never much of a developer, but more of a documenter or tutor. That’s the role I fell into and I really enjoy it.
Recently, I added some MooShell demos to the mooWalkthrough. It’s great having the ability to have in-guide demos.
Going head first into Twitter from Plurk was probably by best decision in this category. I tried to spread my name at school (I got a fan group page for that effort) and of course online. This blog is a pivitol component for spreading my name. My tiny work in GoodCorners and GoodCarousel helped propel me into a new age of blogging, I think. I’ve growing quite a lot, looking back from when I used Plurk to share my silly thoughts to Twitter and actually talking to people, they’re all there, not on Plurk. (I’m not saying Plurk is that bad or anything, it just has less people.)
On a scale of 1 to 10, I’ve programmed this to at about a 5. I accompished a couple of things, GoodCorners, for instance. However, there just wasn’t ever enough to merit any big personal victory. I always feel like I’m getting further and further behind, especially now that I tried to write some PHP after three months of Java. Woah, I totally messed up. I feel like I dropped the ball this year for coding.
- Burning an ISO on Nero
- GoodCorners – Rounded Corners with Mootools
- Internal Error 2738 with VPN Client on Windows 7
- Remove Google Talk from the iGoogle Side Bar
- 3 Free ISO Burning Applications
I get around 200-350 hits to per day across the board. There have been spikes, some unexplainable and some predictable. Nothing that exciting this year, but overall, better than last year.
Next Year: 2010 – Goals
I hope actually make 2010 count. I graduate in 2011, so I won’t have much more free time after next year. So I have a few things I must do.
- I must tweet once a day about something interesting.
- Do something with Mootools that actually makes a difference.
- Actually write some code that actually matters.
- Redesign this blog, the main page. This is important.
- Write posts that make readers come back.
- Figure out how to write without rambling on pointlessly.
Figure out how to write without rambling on pointlessly.(I’m just joking here.)
I hope you had a great year, I hope I can do it!
