Looking Back at 2014
Yep, this is my retrospective post for 2014. But first, let’s revisit my thoughts on 2013:

Yeah, 2013 was a rough year. 2014 was better.
It’s been a good year for writing. Here are my top 3 blog posts of 2014 (by views):
- Fun Times with CSS Counters
- Gradient Animation Trick
I actually published this at the end of 2013, but it didn’t get noticed until 2014. Surprised me a bit, since it was just a quickie blog post I made one Sunday afternoon. Also featured on CSS Weekly and Sidebar and tweeted by Smashing Magazine.
- Creating Glow Effects with CSS
The demos were fun to make, since they let me play around with pretty colors. For whatever reason, this article has really good SEO. Not complaining.
I have high hopes for 2015. Lots of personal goals, but I’ll mention the professional ones here.
I’m also striving to play a bigger role in the web development community. I’ll continue to write articles, craft demos, and hopefully do more with open source, but I think the next big step will be public speaking.
Thanks for reading. See you in 2015!
