It's the start of a new year. And I've been thinking about the new year for the past 2-3 months. I love looking back and seeing what I can improve in the following year. There are some things that went really well last year. And some things that I'm disappointed with. I'm writing them here so I can hold myself accountable and I hope you can get something out of them too.

One of the most important things you can do is to look back from time to time and review where you are. Where did you start this year? Where did you end? Are you on the right path?
I did this last year after just getting into doing commercial plugin development and a lot has changed and my end of the year numbers (below) are very different.
I already talked a little about how I did with my 2013 resolutions but after reading Pippin's 2013 review I really wanted to add a little bit about how my freelancing & extension development has worked out.
