I still need to make some repairs to my blog - the column layout isn't great, and the news slider is busted among other things. And I'm still not happy with Google/Blogger making significant changes to my search traffic results just because I happened to remove the Blogger banner. My blog has had a dedicated URL for some time but despite the ads, it's not really a money maker. Then again I'm not in it for the money (mostly, a bit would be nice)- I believe in what I write. But I'm beginning to wonder if the free blogger hosting is worth the price. Having a hosted solution would certainly give me more freedom to design the site without having to conform in order to generate search results.
Lastly, I set a goal for myself to reach 100 followers this year. If I add together the two follower sources I'm close, but not quite there. Google also seems to be phasing out Google followers in favor of Google+ friends (or whatever). Which kinda sucks but what can you do?
In addition, I've got a much bigger reach on Twitter and I've let that flounder by focusing on blog posts and not actually commenting on Twitter directly much in the last year.
So I don't have a specific goal worked out for 2014 or a plan of action yet. But I would love to continue to grow the blog. So if you read this blog, and enjoy it don't worry it's not going away. But I wouldn't protest if you recommended it to someone once in a while.
