A Look at 2011

Each year I set goals for my blog and Etsy Shop and share them with all of you. I feel that putting my goals out there for everyone to read gives them more power and helps keep me on track.
Today I'll share how 2011 went and tomorrow I'll share for new goals for 2012!
Blog Goals:
*Blog 3-5 times per week: SUCCESS!
I had 275 posts in 2011 which averages out to over 5 posts per week!
*Get my followers up to 150: SUCCESS!
I am at 249 Followers!!!
I contribute this to visiting a lot of new blogs this year, having a giveaway in April and contributing regularly in the Etsy Blog Team forums.
Shop Goals:
*150 Etsy Sales: SUCCESS!
I actually had 309 Sales in 2011!!! I far exceeded my goals and expectations for 2011!!! By getting my laser engraver and expanding my inventory, I really opened my audience and the sales show it!
*450 Shop Hearts: SUCCESS!
I currently have 614 shop hearts! And I again contribute this to adding so many new items and attracting new buyers.
Other goals:
*Add new products: SUCCESS!
*Add another consignment shop: SUCCESS!
I started selling at another local winery and have had better success at this one than I did at the first one!
*Add a new show venue: SUCCESS!
My booth partner and I added another show that occurs in both the spring and fall. They were our best shows of the year!
As you can see, 2011 was an amazing year! I never would have imagined that my new laser engraver would grow my business in such a way! I hope 2012 is just as great!
Stop back tomorrow to see my goals for 2012. And I'd love to hear how your year went and your new goals for 2012 in the comments!
