Happy Mother’s Day

Well, after much soul searching during the recent move (which is finally over) I’ve decided to take my education more seriously. Must stop spending so much time reading everyone’s post and spend more time writing my own. It was a very disappointing day in one aspect, but a recharging one in another.

Today is the day I get serious. This is the first day of the rest of my life and I want to make a few changes.

First off let’s get a few questions out of the way.

When I post, should it be here on WA and shared on FB…. And all or should it be placed on my website and linked back to WA? Which is more efficient for the limited posts I have been making? I plan to do more posting. I have plenty of places to do it, so what’s stopping me? Lazy. Any excuse can be broken down to lazy, can’t it.

I posted awhile back that I had success setting up Google Authorship and many in WA corrected me that I hadn’t gotten it set up. Once again, I think I have it set up. I checked my WA site as well as my new site and didn’t see any errors except for the link to my category on my blog roll.

I’ve been going through Boot Camp (Phase 4 Lesson 1), had a brainstorm and decided on a niche so I started over with the Certification Courses (just finished Course 2) I’m going through every step and not worrying about the time it’s taking me. This is obvious by the fact that I’ve been here 4 months and haven’t really done anything. I’ve learned a lot, but I haven’t been applying myself. I intend to stop that and get serious.

I applied for Adsense tonight and started that training. From what I’ve seen here, it shouldn’t be that much trouble to set up and if it is, I’m sure someone will come to the rescue. You guys always do.

Thanks for listening. This seems to be the only place where I can “talk” to someone that cares. I do appreciate each and every one of you.

If you have a few minutes, please take a look. My sites are in a serius state of neglect, but God willing I’m going to correct that problem.

Well done Brenda. Put your blogs on both on your own blog first (when it's up) and link back to WAU.

My blog first, link back to WA. Thanks. How do I link back, just open a post and paste in the link? I've had so much going on the last w months, I feel like I'm starting over.

Tweaking is fun. I remember my programming classes, I'd start out with good intentions, then hack it into place.

Hey Brenda, much success to you as you forge ahead. I had a look at your websites and they are very well put together. I did notice one spelling error (loose instead of lose on your Back On Track blog) and a few inconsistencies with spacing. Other than that, very well done.

Thank you. I've been spelling the word wrong my whole life. Must spend more time on dictionary.com. Sad that at my age I find I've been using the wrong word.

Inconsistencies with spacing is another thing I have trouble with. Fingers don't work, (fat fingers on keyboard), then the eyes don't see what they see. You know the drill.

I appreciate you taking the time and sharing your input.

Congrats on your new resolve, Brenda. I was impressed by both your websites. I didn't know you were that far along. I think you've managed a lot in 4 months. I don't know if I would be that far along given your circumstances. Don't look back. Keep on keeping on, girlfriend. I know you'll succeed with that attitude.

Watch away. God knows I need someone to keep me on track. My sister will appreciate the break I'm sure.

But the tulip fields are so much more fun, Mom!
