There is nothing quiet like the feeling of knowing that right now at this moment you are better than you were a year ago, a month ago or even better a day ago. Progress is one thing that makes me happy. Progress lets me know I am doing some things right. Even the smallest amount of progress can lead to huge amount of happiness. The only way to measure progress is to measure yourself. Have points of measurement to keep up with. One of the most common is money. How much are you making and saving? Another one specifically for a blogger is how often you are posting? How much traffic is your website getting? There are many ways to measure but the most important is what makes you the happiest.
