My 2019 Reflections

Reading Time: 4 minutes

2019 was truly great year for me. Our second son was born in October and we have moved to our first house. I have also received my very first Sitecore Technology MVP and Sitecore Community Friend awards. I have also continued working with SXA for one of our clients and had really incredible experience with it.

I have fulfilled all my plans that I had for 2019 which is amazing and I am really grateful for any help that I have received to make it happen. I have presented on couple of meetups, learnt and used SXA 1.8 and Sitecore 9.1 and I have lost also some weight ;). List of all plans for 2019 can be found at the end of this blog post.

Below are my reflections of 2019.

Sitecore Virtual Developer Day 2019

  • On 10th October 2018 I have recorded my session “SXA in Action” during Sitecore Symposium 2018 in Orlando, FL. It was broadcasted on 7th March 2019. You can watch the recording here and take a look on slides here.

Blog

Blog posts

I have published 30 blog posts so far in 2019 on various topics like SXA, Sitecore Installation and a lot of Sitecore related ebooks (in mobi, epub and pdf formats so suitable for any e-reader like Kindles, Kobos, Pocketbooks or laptops) generated from Helix and SXA documentation.

I also published specialized blog posts like Sitecore Developer Bookshelf 2019 or SXA Learning Resources.

Stats

My blog was visited by 22662 visitors that visited altogether 46895 pages in 2019 (as of 18th November 2019 – will update figures at the end of the year):

Blog.2019.Traffic

Blog.2019.Stats

In year 2018, I had 17778 viewed pages by 8630 visitors. Seems I can triple these figures this year which would be amazing! I am very happy that my articles are retweeted by my fellow Sitecore MVPs, other Sitecore developers and also by Sitecore itself which shares my articles on their Twitter or Facebook accounts. Great recognition.

I am happy for every single visit and if I only helped one person, it was worth it!
