April 2020 Progress - a little late

Last Update: May 06, 2020

To Start Off

April was a very slow month for me. I ended up doing more minor maintenance on my site than actual blogging. This is also going to be a short post as well. I will say up front...that next month will be better.


OK...On With It Then...

To cut to the chase... I didn't do much this month as I was hoping to. I ended up spending more time helping my daughter with her school work in the afternoons and evenings. She is struggling a little with the work given her from her teacher.

My mornings were difficult getting out of bed as I had quite a few late nights as well working in the garage to get it cleaned up for my Locksmithing side hustle as well. Oh, I didn't really mention that I was studying to be a locksmith on the side. That may be immediate cash in hand when I get it up and running.

So, that took a little of my time at night. Now, that the garage is almost done...still have a cage that needs to be put up for securing my key cutting machine. I also need to put together a few work tables now that the garage is nearly cleaned out.

OK, enough about that.

Really - Now on With MMO and My Websites...

My website (the MMO one) has had one review added to it at least. I did a few updates and followed a couple suggestions to eliminate the "blue space" at the top of my pages. So, I have an image up there now.

My Web Design business has been registered with Google "MyBusiness" for better local SEO.

I also made some changes to my wife's Pet-sitting website to give her access to it through WordPress.org. Now, she can add blog posts and once she has a couple of posts I will add a few affiliate links to it for her. Hopefully, she or should I say I, will be making a little of change with that one now.

That's It - In a Nutshell...

So, that is the extent of what I have done. Not much I know. But, the month of May will be better. I just had other projects to get accomplished. I am glad about one thing. JeffreyBrown says it a lot, and that this is a work at our own pace business. So, whatever I get accomplished, is a good thing. As long as something is taking place.

What Do I Plan to Get Done in May?

Hopefully, more than I did in April. But, if the last 5 days have been any indication, I may be back saying the same thing again. I really do hope not though.

My plans are to get at least three blog posts/reviews written and finally get my mail campaigns going. I think I was going to do that last month, but it didn't happen yet. I will get to it this month. I have all my training done to get it done. So, now that I am "educated" on it... I think. I should have that accomplished. I have an account with MailChimp at the moment, because I am short of funds to pay for Aweber.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me so that I can bypass any mistakes? Even if I have a few, it'll be something I can learn from. LOL!

I still feel good about having my own business and thankful for all that WA has to offer. I also look forward to seeing the changes to come in the next year and hope that it helps to propel me into a successful future.

I appreciate anyone take the time to read and if you have anything to add, please do leave a comment and click "LIKE THIS" below.

I wish you all the best and stay safe.

Good afternoon Bob,

I would not worry too much about not doing all you had planned.
The world is upside down and our lives are also different these months. I have acquired a different speed, kind of. I write less for my websites too. I am more busy on FB as the things happening in the world grab my attention. We are our own boss and decide what is best.
I would look at all the things you did accomplice, I think you did a lot.

Stay safe and healthy,

Taetske

Thanks for that. I still want to get more accomplished. Just for the solace that I’ve done what I can to build my success.

Even if this is just laying the groundwork or foundation, so to speak. 🤪👍

Hi Jen, I keep hitting roadblocks as well. Now, I have to rethink my campaigns with MailChimp on my MMO site.

It’ll be ok to use for my wife’s pet-sitting page and my web design site. So, I’m back to the see drawing board on the e-mail campaign for my MMO site.

😀👍

It isn’t much progress of course, but I hope everyone who reads it realizes we all don’t have to super productive all the time. LOL!

Not that I am knocking super-productivity. I wish I was at times.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

I understand that while we are in lockdown mode that we feel we should get more done. I have accomplished a lot this month but a little shy of where I wanted to be because it has held me up going out to see in person some companies I am working for online, they like to discuss not just online.
Wish you a productive month.

Thanks for reading. You are so right about the lockdowns. It is mostly just overwhelming at times and I do hope to see myself getting more accomplished and I hope you have a productive month as well.
