Another year has quickly gone by. 2020 was a year that many of us won’t forget especially due to the pandemic and the bush fires. Life simply goes on and I wanted to spend some time in reflecting on some of my achievements in 2020 and write down some goals for 2021.
Out curiosity, I just looked at when I started my personal website and I actually purchased the domain on new Year’s Eve 2017. I then created the website on New Year’s Day, so it’s been roughly 4 years. Here are a few of my accomplishments from 2020.
Website traffic for this website has dramatically jumped in 2020 due to a few popular posts that I published in May. In total, I wrote 65 articles in 2020, which equates to about at least 1 article per week. I aim to increase this number in 2021 because CONTENT IS STILL KING!
I’m using Google Search Console stats above information since I didn’t have Google Analytics set up correctly but below is all that what was captured in 2020 (since August 2020).
PAYPAL DONATION BUTTON
Since I was getting more traffic and some of the articles I wrote were actually useful to my readers, I decided to add a PayPal donation button to each article surprisingly I actually received donations so thank you to all my readers who donated. I plan to write another article in the future from what I learn about adding this Donation Button.
My affiliate commissions income slightly increased in 2020 and you can read more about this here: Affiliate Review 2020
I also decided to publish more videos in 2020 and this helped boost with YouTube traffic and views. I managed to hit 1,000 public watch hours. I need another 3, 000 hours (total of 4,000) before I can start monetising the YouTube channel skopioeye
If you’ve been following my website blog, you can probably guess that I’ve been running a lot and my fitness level has improved. I haven’t been going to the gym so I have definitely lost some muscle mass.

With regards to our digital solutions business, Advertise Me, we have been landing larger clients which is a good sign. Obviously, we have also been impacted by COVID as some businesses no longer have the budget they use to.
GOALS FOR 2021
Here’s a list of goals for 2021:
- increase traffic to this website and other website I manage
- increase YouTube traffic and hit 2000 hours of public watch time
- increase affiliate commissions
- build more muscle mass and weigh 68 kg (currently 64 kg)
- do at least 5 continuous muscle-ups
- launch a course
- launch a podcast
- launch a new product
- complete an online course
- spend more time with family
These goals are not very detailed but I hope to put a plan together for each of those goals in the near future. Due to time constraints, I didn’t add all my accomplishment to the list – just the major ones.

I am an entrepreneur based in Sydney Australia. I was born in Vietnam, grew up in Italy and currently residing in Australia. I started my first business venture Advertise Me from a random idea and have never looked back since. My passion is in the digital space, affiliate marketing, fitness and I launched several digital products. You will find these on the portfolio page.
I’ve decided to change from a Vegetarian to a Vegan diet and started a website called Veggie Meals.
I started this blog so I could leave a digital footprint of my random thoughts, ideas and life in general.
