Good Morning!

 

So, since reviving my long dead account, I have not gotten to spend much time on here! I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about my past month in adventures and successes and failures, allow others to share with me theirs, as well as some general advice sharing for us all to join in on!

 

During August I:

  • Launched My Own Website/Blog
  • Started organizing my website, putting the puzzle together
  • FINALLY got my wife in to a healthier diet/lifestyle
  • Started building my network for online marketing
  • Sold a membership to the boat club I work for
  • Started Reorganizing my life for the better!

 

But I Also:

  • Fell off my workout routine
  • Got distracted with unimportant matters
  • Struggle to keep my dying car running
  • Have an expensive medical bill about to come out
  • Struggle to stay focused when working on my site
  • Almost bought in to an MLM scheme known as Primerica (Hoping to have caught the bank soon enough to prevent unwanted charges)

 

While I obviously have some areas to work on and fix, I do not wish to linger too long on the shortcomings! The fact is, the good that has come out far out weighs the bad. My site is not generating income YET and I don't imagine it will for the next couple months. Everything is just slowly coming together and I have a TON to learn still! The writing is not the difficult part at all. The coding part is becoming much easier. Staying on top of social media on the other hand has been quite the struggle. I am learning to use auto-schedulers to keep fresh posts on each social site, BUT I need to have more of an online presence in each one and communicate with my followers and potential followers.

 

All this has been a ton more work than I could imagine but as it starts to fall in to place things are not near as bad or daunting as they had seemed at the start! A little disorganization is all that is cluttering my mind, and writing about it here is helping me realize what steps I need to take next.

 

How about you? What have you achieved this past month? What about some short comings you can correct? Any advice to offer?

 

Let's chat! ^.^

Sounds quite good! I know from first hand experience how difficult it can be to launch the first website/blog so congrats! :D

I kinda struggle with a good writing style though, any recommendations how to tackle writing great posts efficiently?

As for the social media part: As long as you have your regular stream of blogposts, that's already quite well in my mind. Managing presence in several groups for reaching a wider audience can be quite a hassle though..

Struggle to stay focused when working on my site

 

Getting sidetracked while working on the site can indeed happen quite fast! :S I found it especially helpful to do babysteps. When steps are small enough to be precise and easy, working them off in a focused manner is much easier (at least for me.). Any ideas how you want to get more focus while doing that?

Time to pull yourself up then! :) Working out is also good for dealing with stress and it's a good balance to desk work. (Buuut you probably know all the good reasons!)
