Can you believe a new year is soon upon us? It is! 2014, y’all! And, as I do before any new year begins, I’ve been thinking a lot about my goals, both personal and professional and everything in between. This was a pretty good year, I think. In terms of DW, traffic grew moderately, the forums have really taken off (that was a goal of mine), and revenue increased 50%, meaning I actually make a tiny profit now. Next year, I would love the traffic to grow a lot more and to see another 50% (at least!) increase in revenue. I hope to have an eBook ready early in the year and a podcast going by the second half of the year and a more mobile-friendly site within a few months.
Beyond that, I am open to suggestions. What would you love to see more of (or less of) from DearWendy.com in 2014? Of course, I have limited resources and I can’t make any promises, but I definitely want to make user/readers’ experience as pleasant and positive as possible, so tell me what that means for you. And thank you in advance for not turning this into a big bitch session about how you hate such-and-such thing or that one commenter or you think the site is “too white” (someone emailed that complaint to me recently and she meant it, like, literally. Like, the white on her screen hurt her eyes).
