Yep, this is my retrospective post for 2014. But first, let’s revisit my thoughts on 2013:
Fuck 2013.— Will Boyd (@lonekorean) January 1, 2014
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):
- 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!
