The goals that I stated in January were the following
For the blog (Dominique’s Desk)
- Increase revenue to be able to save enough to buy a DSLR.
- Have bloggers to guest posts on my blog.
- Guest post on other sites/blogs at least once a month.
- Increase readership and grow my traffic.
- break the 100,000 Alexa mark
2012 was the year that I shifted gears and moved from a casual blogger to a professional one. I engaged a cyber agent to help manage my portfolio and also placed a lot of energies in growing this blog.
This year was a year of massive growth and increase in awareness of Dominique’s Desk. From March I started taking down in detail the various stats associated with the blog. I recently joined instagram in October and am slowly growing my followers on it.

The kids and I had lots of fun this year and we visited many new places. We made new friends and many long lasting friendships were forged with other bloggers and their kids.
I started up a monthly featured called my Top Ten Highlights whereby at the end of each month I would make a summary about the highlights of each month. I also have a review of my Insane goals monthly to make sure that I keep on track to achieving my goals.
Here is are some of the highlights in photos for November and December.
The memories made through birthday celebrations. A tradition which will continue for years with the kids asking for customized birthday cakes.
The kids had lots of fun at the Angry Bird Playground at T3 during a media invite.
