Decade in Review: My Most Important Moments and Lessons from the 2010s

sf-gate-article

As we turn the calendar on a new decade, I thought I’d reflect back on the last 10 years.

To paint the picture of where the 2010s started for me, I was:

coming off a great year in business, and had high hopes for the future
about to get married
blogging at nickloper.com, on a bunch of random topics
$150k underwater in our house, which was a huge source of stress

Let’s see what happened next!

Quarterly Progress Report – Q2 2019

The biggest spike on the chart coincided with publishing this monster 7000-word post on passive income. It was a ton of fun to write and hopefully can be a pillar piece of content for years.

Even though there’s no “hockey stick” growth to report here, one bright spot is an increase in search traffic in June. Organic traffic was up 13% in June compared with May.

Quarterly Progress Report – Q2 2018

Progress report time! I’ve been doing these quarterly progress reports for the last few years.

I find this exercise a helpful time to evaluate what happened over the last 3 months, to see what you got done, and to ask if you’re happier or otherwise better off than you were when you started.

So am I?
