My 2007 milestones and 2008 goals

The 2007 year started somewhat rough for me but things have gradually normalized and I can say I am happy with what I have achieved this year. Here are a few milestones from the past.

  • I traveled to Ukraine and blogged while I was there
  • I launched Buxr, my second online project after WiredDeals
  • ProBargainHunter has reached 1000 RSS readers

For the new year, these are the goals I want to achieve:

Home improvement

Ever since we moved to our new house 5 years back we have not done any work inside. The walls are painted white as the builders originally had them. The basement is just a cement box. I hope to have the time and resources to change this in 2008, and be sure I will keep you updated on how things go.

Buxr 2.0

My partner and I have a lot of things in the pipeline for Buxr. Just as I was gradually improving WiredDeals to make it the ultimate bargain hunting tool, I want to make Buxr a better and more functionally complete. I hope to have the energy to pull off everything we planned for the new year.


With my day time job and my projects (online and at home) taking all of my free time, I hope to keep my blog going because it has been such a great joy to be able to share my thoughts and learn back from you. I hope I will manage to keep it updated.

Are you happy with how 2007 turned out for you? What are some of the goals that you set for 2008? Please share them in your comments.

    Way to go Yan! One thing about home projects as I learned on my own is that they never end. Ever.;)

    Keep this blog going and good luck with your other projects. S Novym Godom! ;)

    Thanks Alex, happy New Year to you too!

    We are in Wisconsin right now with a bunch of families form Russia, Ukraine and Byelorus. We went cross-country skiing. The forest is gorgeous, like in a fairy tale. I will try to post some pictures
