2014: Look back

    Looking back to a blog post I wrote in the beginning of January I set myself some goals for the new year. I have never really written goals for myself before so I don't know what I was thinking then. Here's the post if you want to read it for yourself: Happy 2014!!   
  1. My review of the Playstation 4.   There's a lot of good to be said but there is also some points that Sony has missed wildly with the PS4's user interface.  
  2. I keep wanting to make a longer hot wheels stop-motion with an actual goal inside the video.  
  3. More compelling published Youtube videos.  I want to reach 100 subscribers by the end of 2014. I suppose the only way to get to this is the create compelling videos somewhat consistently.  
  4. Tweet more! I do like Twitter, but rarely tweet. It just requires letting go more.  
  5. More Battlefield 4 and some PS4 share clips of excitement in this blog. Look for it!

          The big one first, number 3 above I think I accomplished AND SOME. Over 130 subscribers and lot's of very loyal and liking fans of my style of gaming videos. I'm going to set a goal for 2015 for my Youtube channel for reaching 300 subscribers. Looking at it now it doesn't seem possible but neither did 100 subscribers a year ago.
          Next up on topic is number 4, have I been tweeting more in 2014, yes and no. No I don't initiate tweeting much however yes I have been replying to tweets by others and engaging in conversation. I'll try again in 2015 to this time initiate more tweets and perhaps grow Youtube fans through Twitter but true fans are tough capture from Twitter. I foresee 50% likelihood on this one.
          Number 5 above has me playing more Battlefield 4 but over the course of the past year I've grown apart from BF4. I absolutely adore PvZ Garden Warfare a lot more than BF4 really, its casual nature is much more entertaining overall and its polish in the gameplay is more fulfilling to play. Over 2014 I have made six videos of varying subject here. For 2015 I would like to expand my Youtube channel to more Garden Wafare videos, I'd like to do at least 20 videos, particularly on continuous live entertaining talking gameplay and more shorter "that was awesome" moments shared on Reddit, too.
          On to the Hot Wheels stop-motion topic I could easily just pass on this but I think I might have one more in me but for me to post it it would have to be really (really) great. I know I can do it but I also know if I don't I wouldn't be bummed out about it.
          My video editing skills have improved substantially over the year, I know I can improve especially if I can use a more advanced editor than Movavi 9 which is great though, but I would like to try something greater. My goal for 2015 is to get a more advanced video editor and become proficient with it but also keep it under $50 but research a lot on a greater one.
          One more goal for 2015 is more blog posts with a hefty content fill.
Looking forward to 2015, internet!
