Corbett's Best of 2011

2011 was an incredible year for me, this site and Insanely Useful Media.

I started blogging here back in 2009 (this site used to be called Free Pursuits). In 2010 I created Think Traffic. In 2011, we launched Traffic School, the Hustle Project, the Million Dollar Blog Project and Expert Enough. Over 640,000 people visited our sites this year.

It was a busy year. Thankfully I didn’t do it all alone. Barron helped me with Traffic School and Caleb joined as Assistant Editor in August.

Business was great last year, but life was even better.

We spent last winter in Mexico and then traveled Europe for two months (Amsterdam, Berlin, Budapest, Croatia and Barcelona). I took a full week off with no Internet and no computer. We also spent time in Sonoma wine country, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. I rafted the White Salmon, fished for steelhead in the Klickitat and surfed Santa Cruz, Ocean Beach, La Ticla and a half dozen other spots on the Pacific Coast.

Jessalyn had three big exhibitions and started an incredible new body of work.

Thanks for following me on this adventure. My life is incredible because of your support. I couldn’t do it without you.

Here’s to an incredible 2012. Thanks for reading!
