Yesterday I published an article on Medium titled A 6 Month Check-In On My Reading Diversity in 2022. Spoiler – I have nost succeeded in diversifying my reading.
I looked today to see if I had posted goals or resolutions for the year. I did not.
I did find something I posted that was a one-year check-in after leaving my job. I did have a list of things I thought I should do moving forward. I succeeded in two of those and the others are things I no longer think are things I want.
A look at the two where I was successful.
Continue Writing Here and On Medium
I have published something here most days.
I’ve continued my daily What’s on TV article.
I have over 10,000 views so far this year.
I now have over 1000 followers.
I have been less consistent on Medium, but I have published regularly there.
I’m trying to get more writers for my publication, Reading is a Novel Idea.
I have earned $74. It’s not a lot but it is $74 more than I would have without Medium.
Regular Volunteer Hours at the Barn
I’m now volunteering three days a week.
I am now a facilities volunteer in addition to a barn volunteer.
I walk in now and people know my name.
People have started asking me if I have any interest in eventually being a barn lead(the person in charge of the barn and volunteers for a shift)
I feel like I have been successful in those two areas. The others had to do with getting a paying job. That might still be something in the future, but not a priority.
