Ben Davies About Blog Research

A year ago I listed my three main goals for 2019:

  1. Run a half marathon;
  2. Read 12 books;
  3. Publish five explorative blog posts.

I achieved the first and third, but failed the second.

I ran two half marathons: one in the rain in March, and another in the sun in November. The next will be at Round the Bays in February 2020.

I read ten books:

I read less than planned because I blogged more than planned. I moved towards shorter, more focused posts, which gave me more time to develop and publish new ideas. In the new year, I plan to look at NBER working paper co-authorships and to summarise my Strava activity data from 2019.
