Well a hair over a year ago, my business partner (and former roommate) and I started a little side project doing online marketing. It focused on website design, SEO, PPC, etc. It's been going very well.
In fact, it's gone so well that I'm now doing it full time and I've moved to a new city: Las Vegas!
It's a very exciting time.
This new job has put a TON of emphasis on writing, so I find myself pumping out content every day. We're so busy writing that we're actually hiring an additional person to do some of the writing for us.
In the mean time I've been doing a little bit of writing for myself. I did try to participate in NaNoWriMo 2013, but it only lasted about a week before I ran out of steam. At least I got another 7000 words on the second book in my little series.
I've also written a bit here and there on religious blogs, like the blog for the Mormon community on reddit, and my personal religious blog.
However, I don't think I've added at all to my short story series, other than to invent a new character in my head. The alpha readers I sent copies to were all non-responsive, except one who said something along the lines of "it was fine." Pitchmas netted no results either.
In any case, it's been an interesting year. I'd say something like "I'll try to update this blog more regularly" but I think we all know we shouldn't be making promises we can't keep. ;)
