Hope your 2012 has started with a bang!
This past year has been nothing short of incredible. I have really enjoyed the challenges and rewards that have come along with the online IELTS work that I now do. I know how hard you are all working to succeed on your IELTS exam, and I feel so proud to be a small part of that.
This year, I managed to accomplish a few things. I wrote 148 posts to ieltsielts.com, started an IELTS-related chat website (where I’ve met many of you!) and an ESL classifieds website, held an online IELTS essay contest (which was great fun; we’ll do that again this year for sure), corrected several hundred essays online (via my online course), received 1,000,887 video views to my YouTube account and responded to over 8000 of your emails. My ebook sold over 3 times as many copies as in 2010. I’ve met and worked with some other wonderful IELTS bloggers, too: Simone (of the one and only ielts-blog.com), Dominic (of dcielts.com), the group at examenglish.com, Bren Brennan (of St. George International), Simon (of ielts-simon.com) and the ESL resources of Rebecca and Jennifer (of englishwithjennifer.com). Overall, it was a wonderful year and I am so happy that your support allows me to do something I love. From the bottom of my heart to the entire online IELTS community: thank you.
About a year ago, I ran a survey asking you for advice on how I could improve my online work. I really feel the results of this survey gave me the direction I needed to fulfill your needs for quality online IELTS resources last year.
I would be so grateful if you could spare me 5 minutes of your time to complete a new survey (it’s only 6 questions long!) that I will use to guide my work in 2012.
