One Challenge Ends – A New Challenge Begins!

I Completed The 30 Day Blogging Challenge

Let The 30 Day Blogging Challenge (re) Commence!

Yesterday I completed my 30 Day Blog Posting Challenge and today I am starting another 30 Day Challenge! Am I mad, crazy, lazy, hazy, shady? You be the Judge – be kind :)

Well, I was so happy with the progress that I made. I got lots of posts published and I discovered a lot of fellow bloggers along the way. I thought that I would take the opportunity of the support from these groups to help me get even more done.

The Results of My September Blog Posting Challenge

30 Day Blog Posting ChallengeI created a blogging list to show where I posted each day.

This helped to keep me accountable and was an easy way for others to see the progress that was made.

As you will see, the links take you to various blogs that I was working on. It was nice to figure out a schedule so that each of my online properties got a little bit of love.

Stay tuned to find out how much I made with my Amazon affiliate sites.

This Month My Blogging Challenge Will Be Different

For the month of October, I will be focussing on building up content for just one site, this one.

Over the last month, I worked on several of my websites, adding posts to my personal blogs and adding articles to my Amazon affiliate websites. I have been very happy with the engagement that I have received on my personal blogs with lots of wonderful comments being left and posts being shared.

This month I want to see if I can reap the benefits of working on just one blog to see what the results will be. So expect to see 30 brand new posts here.

Actually there are 31 days in October but it doesn’t have that same ring does it? Oh well. :)

How I Plan To Stay Motivated – By Joining Blogging Groups

There are lots of ways that you can get motivation, support and even ideas for future blog posts. Do this by joining an active group. You can join a forum that is in your niche or you can find relevant groups on Facebook.

I am a member of 3 groups that are on Facebook. Here are the links where you can join too:

OK – I am A Glutton for Punishment!

As if that wasn’t challenging enough, I thought I would combine a video element to this affair. I will be making little videos to go with each post. Some will be made using my brand new toy, software programme Easy Sketch Pro and others will be me on camera. There may even be a few screen-share type things if I work out how to do those.

Want To See My First Attempt with Easy Sketch Pro?

As soon as I downloaded the software, I wanted to find out how easy or difficult it would be to use. I quickly scanned through the user guide, that was actually put together by someone who had purchased the product.

This is what I came up with in about 30 minutes.

Not too shabby, if I say so myself. I look forward to adding more videos with this software. I am sure there are still new things to discover.  I think that the more you make, the quicker you get at making them.  We shall see.

Would You Like To Try Easy Sketch Pro?

Easy Sketch ProThink about the type of business you are in? Is there a way that you could present information to your community via video? Is it something your children would have fun with – making their own stories come to life?

If the answer is yes and you would like to try your hand at making little videos then click on the link below for more details.

So The Challenge Begins (Again!)

I hope you enjoy the content that I create over the next 31 days. I am really excited – and a little bit scared. Wish me luck :)

How To Deal with Multiple Websites & Multiple Email Addresses

In my last email to my subscribers, I asked if anyone had a question that I might be able to help with. Here is one such question from the post bag – all about setting up independent websites and the issue of email addresses. I have slightly re-jigged it so that I could answer it point by point.

The Question:

When You Set Up A New Website, Do You Set Up A New Email Address?

How to Make Money with Amazon This Holiday Season

 How to Make Money with Amazon

Would You Like to Make Money with Amazon?

If you are interested in making money online, it is always a good idea to have more than one income revenue stream. One area where I am trying to build up my online income is with my niche sites.

I used to have over 70 sites at one time and that was pretty crazy. Now I have reduced that down to just four. 2 are seasonal, 1 is for toys and one is for random items that I like the look of.

Should You Try & Make Money with Amazon?

Bright Shiny New Object Syndrome – Are Your a Sufferer?

Bright Shiny New Object Syndrome

Do You Suffer from Bright Shiny New Object Syndrome?

You hear about a brand new product, which promises to change your life, improve your business and make you more money. Full of motivation and optimism, you hand over your money.

But, instead of working with one product until you see the results you want, you get bored or distracted and then move to the next product that offers exactly what you are after. But – oh no – you see so much good stuff that you can’t pick between them. So you buy and buy and buy.

You get your goodies and you open them all up and take the first step. But it ends there. You never take the second step. You might feel overwhelmed or see another hot and trendy product to buy and you move on. Recognise this behaviour?

This is what is known as the Bright Shiny New Object Syndrome. When this happens, it means you were intrigued by a product or an idea enough that it took the place of the one you’re currently implementing. Continue reading
