Happy New Year!!! 2014 in review and goals for 2015!

Well, its New Years Eve! Wow, what a year. Traditionally I like to spend New Years Eve with the New Years Rocking Eve crew in front of the TV and maybe watch some fireworks, but this year I have to be at work when the Big Apple drops. #boo.

Anyway, January 1st marks the end of a huge chunk of my life where I learned so much about so many, and blogged about a lot of them. Where as this blog has been busy as a beaver this year, many of my other projects suffered, and so, one of my 2015 goals is to blog more on the art blog and the fiction blog. I have a lot of fiction to type yet from years ago and also, I want to do something next year with my Youtube channel. Its kind of been gathering dust lately.

One of my goals for the year is to proofread my posts from this year and touch them up if needed, then I may be reblogging them on Thursdays for #TBT. So you may be seeing some of those reworks soon on my Twitter.  

The year in review? Well, lets see, I started this blog in 2014 and also created a newspaper this year called Family History Daily and Family History Weekly too, and as they are doing so well, I will be keeping them in circulation. I sat up a feed at Twitterfeed which has been very helpful with keeping readers in the loop and so that will continue as well, and I earned a few awards this year at Wikitree and this year and as I never win awards, had to share them on my blogs.  

And I learned a lot about my ancestors and their families this year that I did not know before. Also, found a whole lot of cousins that I never would have found if not for genealogy. What a great hobby this has been.
My other fam history blog GTFT is doing the Family History Friday challenge now and will be continuing it all next year, in fact, I have written almost 52 posts for it already, just need to tweak them a bit.

And my Art blog is doing the Wordless Wednesday challenge because what a perfect challenge for  an art blog right? It lets me post all the little sketches that I just cant come up with a name for. Also, hope to find time to continue the famous people cartoons next year, I have already done George Bush and David Letterman cartoons over there and Nixon and Obama too. Hoping to do a Lincoln toon soon.  

For Poetry month next year, I hope to do some new works each week, maybe even each day.

I want to say THANKS for reading this year as this weblog was born in January and has already had 17383 views this year alone. Wow. Never thought it would make it.  

What are your goals for 2015 and accomplishments for 2014?
