In January I started to write annual and monthly reports and TODO lists. On one hand, I hope that this will help me track my progress and on the other hand it lets you, my reader, take a look at my plans and participate in the journey.
January was a short but busy month as I was on skiing vacation with my children for 10 days. Luckily the owners of the B&B (Zimmer) had installed wifi so I could at least handle some of my e-mails and I could post the Perl Weekly.
I also had a lot of things piled up from December when my mother was visiting us and my children were at home and with my sister we also organized a surprise birthday party for her. In Budapest.
Finally, I had 4 days Perl training at a client. Which is awesome.
These were not specifically planned but I think its worth mentioning.
I started to promote the Perl Weekly on 3 social networks. This might have had a bad effect on the a number of new subscribers of the mailing list itself as it grew less than I was hoping. On the Perl Weekly mailing list there are now 2544 members with 424 RSS subscribers. That means the mailing list only grew by 168 people and the RSS feed actually decreased by 24.
On Twitter the @perlweekly has 173 followers.
On Google+ 173 people put Perl Weekly in their circles.
On Facebook 78 people liked the Perl Weekly.
So it seems there are some more people interested in immediate updates while I have not worked hard enough to attract the folks who prefer mailing lists.
Plans for February 2012
It seems I am going to have 8 or even 12 Perl training days in February and we are having the Israeli Perl Workshop as well, at the end of the month.
So probably I won't be able to do a lot of other work. Nevertheless let's list some items I'd like to do:
That's enough of planning for now. I think I have a lot of other things I need to do but I need to prioritize.
