Hi there 🙂 Have you been setting goals for 2013? And are you going to take up a new hobby?
It doesn't have to be related to Internet marketing…
I have a couple of things I would like to play around with, and they are both slightly related to Internet marketing. At least, they might turn out to be helpful.
Let me tell you about my plans. It might give you ideas to come up with new hobbies yourself.
I Want to Learn Illustrator
Every time I work even just a little bit with graphics, it makes me happy. It's so satisfying 🙂
I've played around with [amazon asin=B007S02Y6I&text=Illustrator&chan=default] several years ago (I have the ancient CS3 version), and I had so much fun following this guide:
In 2013 I want to get better at using Illustrator. I'm not going to turn it into a career, but I might use my own creations as illustrations to blog posts.
The kitten you see in this blog post was one I made in 2008 with Illustrator.
I Want to Make WordPress Plugins
I used to do quite a lot of PHP programming, but I haven't done so lately. WordPress is hot and fun. And I want to at least discover a little bit about how to make plugins to this awesome blogging platform.
There are several Amazon books that teach how to make WordPress plugins.
What are your plans? Do you want to take up a funny new hobby in 2013?
