Year in Review: 2017

I'm looking back over 2017, and pulling together some metrics to answer the question posed by Rent: How do you measure a year? Here are a few ways:

Books read: 52 (for a total of 16,906 pages)
Blog posts written: 365 (counting this one)
Jobs: 2, and fortunately, less than 2 months of unemployment
Concerts Performed: 7, plus a very successful benefit for my choir
Movies Seen in Theatre: 14
Plus another NaNoWriMo win!

I also decided to check out my 5 most popular blog posts from the year, based on page views, and all of them are about statistics (go figure):
  1. Statistical Sins: Stepwise Regression
  2. Statistics Sunday: What Are Degrees of Freedom? (Part 1)
  3. Statistics Sunday: Free Data Science and Statistics Resources
  4. Statistics Sunday: What is Bootstrapping?
  5. Statistical Sins: Know Your Variables (A Confession)
I've already shared some of my writing goals for 2018. I'm putting together some additional goals and resolutions for 2018, and I'll share those soon!

Sound off, readers - how do you measure your year? And what are your goals for 2018? Feel free to describe in the comments or share a link to your own blog posts on the subject.
