As my translation workload grinds to a festive halt, I’m using some of my spare time to really work on setting a few goals for 2013. If you’re wondering where to start, Corinne McKay has just written a great post on the subject. I also revisited a guest post on Catherine Translates, which provided some inspiration.
Here’s a quick ‘n’ dirty overview of my 2012 in numbers:
11 months of blogging
148 comments (some my own)
10,958 pageviews (according to Google Analytics)
170,534 words translated
1 MA nearly completed
2 published articles
And here are a few goals for 2013:
Attend the ITI Conference – if any colleagues will be there, get in touch and we’ll meet up!
Identify and attend at least 2 industry events for my specialist areas
Work on finding some local direct clients
Attend industry workshops, either in person or online
Take at least 2 breaks with my other half – mainland Europe is right on our doorstep!
Refresh my neglected Spanish skills
Learn to play the piano – very much a long-term objective!
I’ve shown you mine, how about showing me yours? In the meantime, I’d like to wish all of you a wonderful Christmas break and a fulfilling and prosperous 2013.
