Happy New Year: 2010 Reflection

Well, I'm sitting here watching the hours go by and awaiting for the New Year to arrive. There are literally only a few hours left in 2010 and I've been thinking about how great of a year it was. I reached under my bed and I found a journal that I was using for a school project, two years ago. As I flipped through the pages I realized that I continued writing in it all the way up until December 31st, 2009. The last entry was titled. "2010 Goals." Following the title was a list of feats that I wished to achieve throughout 2010. Some of them included, conduct at least five more interviews, cover at least one more event, and reach over 10 thousand page views in a single month. As I read these goals I couldn't help but smile and realize that I achieved all of them. Not only did I conduct five interviews, but I shattered that goal and conducted 22. As far as events go I covered three more, not just one. Lastly, I wanted so badly to receive 10 thousand page views in one month, but back then, it seemed impossible. I can proudly say that over the past 30 days www.jayswag.com has received 110k page views. Before 2010, if someone told me that www.jayswag.com would receive even 20k page views I would laugh and say "Oh that's impossible," but this year has taught me that hard work and dedication really can pay off. I want to thank everyone that I've interviewed and worked with over the past year. Lastly, I want to thank all of you, the readers, for really making Jay Swag Entertainment News more than what I imagined. I can do all the interviews in the world, but without all the emails, tweets, and comments, I would have no drive to continue. So thank you for making 2010 the greatest year of my life. I wish all of you a blessed and happy New Year. May 2011 bring you all great joy and help you follow all of you dreams. Remember, no matter how old you are, you can always turn your dream into a reality.
