Happy New Year from Corner Boy Jazz!
Happy turn of the planet, y'all! How ya feeling? You know what time it is. Time to see if Corner Boy stacked up to its resolutions from last year. When we last left, the blog had five challenging but doable goals for 2010. You can read last year's post here. Anyway, let's get down to business.

First let's see how we did with last year's goals:

1. 100, 000 hits by January 2011
(Shattered that. Corner boy clocked in 239,506 hits by the new year)

2. Syndication on a media website
(Was working on a deal with Didn't pan out)

3. 100 subscribers
(57...but growing)

4. Adding two more publications to my list of places my byline has appeared
(I added the Centric TV blog, which is a really cool gig. Check that out if you have some free time one of these days)

5. Having fun... 
(Oh yeah. Fa sho.)

Well, 2 out of 5 with progress on the others ain't bad. Now for 2011's goals. Yummy! Here are Corner Boy's resolutions for 2011.

1. One millions hits.
(Yep, it takes a set of brass ones, but hey the world might end soon, right?)

2. An average of 500 hits per day 
(Right now, we're hovering around 200-250. Let's put it in relative overdrive, right?)

3. 100 Subcribers 
(Let's keep that on there. I can't believe I didn't get that one last year. That's like bringing your prize German Shepherd to the national competition only to find out he can't even fetch a stick. Or maybe not.)

4. More stories and personal essays
(I'm a fiction writer, too for god's sake. Y'all don't wanna keep reading about famous musicians all day, do you? You want to read more about me and what I think, not about some magical celebrity with a gorgeous intriguing life.)

5. More Retweets and Comments
(That would be oh so lovely!)

But I digress. Real talk, it's been a great year. Corner Boy has been up and running for a year and a half now. I've gotten a 200 page blog book out of it and the site is listed on over 20 blog rolls and counting. Thank you to folks who visit my blog regularly. Thanks to those of you who read my ish on the down low and those of you who are always forwarding me stuff that I could blog about. It's been a wonderful 2010 and I think, if the world doesn't end, 2011 will be even greater.
