More Rejection and a 1000 word challenge: Week 4 update
This week has been an eventful one. I experienced the full eclipse, packed about 50 meals for starving children, and went to an international festival. That being said, I did not get as much done on my site as I would have liked.
One of the first things that I did this week was get rejected by adsense. When I was signing up, I knew that I was confused, but just decided to put the link into one of my pages. Big mistake. My pages need a bit more work and I got rejected for not having enough content. The next day, I put the link into some of my posts, which are much better, and got approved by adsense.
I also went through some of my old posts to see what I liked and what I didn't. One thing that stood out to me was that they were a bit short and sparse. I decided to challenge myself to make all of my posts at least 1000 words in length and to post three times a week. The first day it was very tough. When I wrote my first draft, it was only about 500 words in length. Then I checked through it, added stuff to it and was able to reach 1000 words.
This challenge seems to motivate me to produce better quality content. I have written 3 posts since I began it and the first draft has been longer each time. I think that it is improving my ability to see where I can flesh out my writing a little more.
I finished course 3 and am beginning course 4. I am very excited to learn about social media marketing. Hopefully it will bring in traffic while my site build trust with the search engine.
Overall, it was an eventful and exciting week.
