hello again

Things are good here in internet land! But of course too busy to do everything I want.

I am reading over my last post and I still haven't gotton to tagging. Why do I have such a block on that? This weekend all blogs get tagged for sure!!

My side web development business just got really busy again and I will need to devote many hours this weekend to that. It pays pretty well ...but it is not learning/creating in affiliate marketing world ..which is where I really want to be!!

Deep breath. Life is good.

so what I want to do this weekend is start tagging my posts. I installed a wordpress plugin to make it I just have to start doing it. maybe I'll go back and tag all the posts from the month of January in my four blogs. The other thing I though I'd do was install the little graphic thingys that allows one to just click and subscribe to your rss feed. I just want to figure out how those things work (and I could use it at my day job as well).

One of my big web site design jobs got turned back on so I will need to work on that this weekend as is totally boring (the site is brochureware for medical supplies) but I don't have to think much, I can crank some podcasts and just code the is pretty mindless work. I kind of like doing opposed to blogging which requires me to "write" ...or more like "re-write" and I try to be clever and witty >....which requires brainwork on my part.

Last night hubby and I went to Barnes and Noble...I bought many magazines....and was pumped about blogging again. I want to start two new blogs this weekend. We'll see.

Last but not least ...a new store opened in my town in one of my niche categorys. I thought I'd stop by and introduce myself and see if I can get ideas of stuff I can blog about. ...and tell her about my site.

I can walk down there and get myself some exercise...that is my NewYear's Resolution not sit in front of the computer all day every day. (well right now I am lying on the couch with my laptop...) you get the picture. MORE EXERCISE!!!==GOOD THING!!!!

Again keeping up with it all

I'm trudging along keeping 4 blogs updated ...I am not doing nearly as well as when I had only one. I need a system!! Maybe get all my posts ready over the weekend or something and then let them roll out over the week.

I'm now off for four big whole days ...I'll see what kind of trouble I can get myself into ...or what new sites I can build!!

I am thinking that I should get into writing content of some sort ...I can write and I work in a library for my day job so the access to material is mind boggling. Hmmmmmmm...... any ideas?

Keeping up with it all....

Well now I am supporting 4 blogs / affiliate sites...which is a big step up from just 1. It is taking me a lot of time to add to each of them every day. I just got through doing a few posts in advance on 2 of the blogs, 1 I already have a few posts in the can and I am just up to date on the last.

I did a bit of submitting to directories this weekend (just dmoz and a couple others...that takes a bunch of time as well).

My adsense money is down sales and I am feeling like this is all a waste of time and I should get off this dang computer and start living my life. But, then I think of going back to work tomorrow and I am SO WANTING TO GET THE HECK OUT of there!!!!

Deep breathe...actually my job is great ...but I have moved on in my head ...and eventually the rest of me will move on to a new situation as well. (please make it be working from home!!) But for now...I need to stay and rake in the money since it certainly ain't coming in on this affiliate/blog side of things.

I think the other thing getting to me is as I go around and read people's blogs it seems like folks are just churning out soulless crap scrapper web sites and they are making money and I don't want to go that route!! ..but I am oh so tempted!!

I'll be back later when I am not so down and negative.

Niche Creator

I'm curious about this piece of software:
NicheCreator Affiliate link
NicheCreator Non-Affiliate link

Has anyone out there tried it or have any opinions? I've found a few people using it and having success in creating sites and making money. I have to dig deeper and figure out how it works but thought I'd ask here first...

I'll report back.

End of 2005 - Hello 2006!!

With a little time off over the new years ...I have launched two new blogs and started a third. The problem I see is that now I will have 3 soon 4 blogs to update daily. AGh!!! where am I going to find the time for that? Not sure ..but I have to plunge forward somewhere somehow.

I need to create sites that don't need so much maintenance and updating. That is where I need to shift my thinking. I've been reading a couple of blogs here and here and trying to find a new way with them.

But, I feel good that I've got this much completed and working and possibly making me money.

more later
