My Blogging Bucket List, revisited

Since we’re nearing the end of the year, which is typically a time of reassessment, forward planning, and goal-setting, I thought I’d revisit a post I wrote in early 2014 and add some updates as to where my blogging bucket list stands nearly a year later.

My Blogging Bucket List – January 11, 2014
(today’s comments in GREEN)

As I was thinking ahead and musing about what might happen – what I want to happen – throughout my next decade of blogging, I thought I’d take some time to put it all into writing… partly to indulge myself, but mostly because I know doing so makes things happen. (It really does!)

So… what do I want to do?
Where do I want my blogging life to go?

My Blogging Bucket List

listComplete another 365-day marathon of daily blogging with NaBloPoMo. (Maybe this year? We shall see…)
UPDATE: Just four more posts to write after this one, and this goal is achieved! Daily blogging has become such a habit that I just might try this one again in 2015.

Have at least one opportunity to do a REALLY amazing giveaway.
UPDATE: Done! I’m keeping this one on the list, though, as I’d love to do more REALLY amazing giveaways in 2015!

Earn enough money from blogging – either directly through my blog or indirectly through associated writing or other work – to pay for my annual blogging costs: blog hosting, plus attendance (ticket, travel, and accommodations) at the BlogHer conference.
UPDATE: I’m nowhere close yet, but being accepted into the BlogHer Publishing Network was a good baby step.

Build up a database of my own photos to use with my blog posts.
UPDATE: In progress!

Produce an e-book (not yet sure about which direction I’d like to go with it).
UPDATE: Hmmm, I kind of forgot about this one. I’ll have to give it some more thought and take action in 2015.

Get a part-time, work-from-home, blogging-related job (dream: BlogHer) to supplement my current part-time, work-from-home, non-blogging-related income.
UPDATE: Alas, this is still just a dream.

May it be so…
UPDATE: Here’s to checking off more of these items in 2015!

What’s on your Blogging Bucket List?
