Last year I joined the Blogathon and this year I’m happy that I manged to sign up in time this year to participate again. My goals for this year is different from last year.
This year I am aiming to do the following for the blog over this weekend.
1. Clear up all broken links on the blog.
2. Create my blogging calandar for the month of July.
3. Take part in 2 mini challenges.
4. Update all my blogs to make sure they are fully updated.
It has been a busy crazy year for me and things are getting rather busy here on Dominique’s Desk. I hope to be able to pick up the slack and re align my direction for this blog since I’ve decided to slice it and shift some of the topics like travel and photography over to the new blog- Rachel Dominique.
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.

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.
