Top 100 - Again!
Good afternoon everyone, as always do so hope that you are all keeping both safe and well, that is right afternoon on a Friday.would like to say that I am ahead of myself, truth is I have had one of those weeks.
Fed up, lethargic and spending time procrastinating, do not ask why, as I cannot answer the question.
One of the quotes from my collection comes to mind - it is by -Terri Guillimets
"Give Your Stress Wings
and Let it Fly Away"
When I read that I often think if only life was that simple, but I suppose it can be if you work hard enough at getting rid of, not only your stress, but problems in general.
Suppose one of the bright spots of the week was being told that I have made the top 100 again, still not quite sure how I do these things, but it is nice to know, considering the elite company that I now keep.
My desktop computer went again on Wednesday evening, luckily I spotted where I was at the time on the web, took it in yesterday and it was fixed pretty quickly, complete with the comment that it was a dodgy site, will reveal all in the section below.
For sometime I have been using an advertising outlet called "Free Advertising For You" also known as FAFY, at times my security has advised me of some problems with some of the sites that advertise on there, this is where the big crash came from the other night. My advice be careful if you use them, it is not the site, but the users or advertisers that appear to have malware, they may not even know about. Needless to say that this site has been consigned to the dustbin.
Have been advised that the odd problem can also occur on Facebook, so for now I am not using that either.
As a result I am increasing my security even more, it is just not worth running the risk of the computer getting even more problems, it is could also get costly.
The Past Few Days
In some ways feel that I have not done a great deal, in other ways, I can see a few green shoots in my attempts to build my business. As always pay a daily visit to live chat.
Published another article on my Family History Website, with some really interesting comments. A couple of my articles have been indexed on Google, which whilst it is nice, not quite sure what I am doing right to get there in the first place. Appreciate that it is supposed to be based on keywords and other things, but I am afraid that I just write what I want too.
Had a few email chats with my mentor, who has helped me with a couple of questions which I had, he does speak a lot of common sense and has some very good ideas. Slowly getting to grips with my first project, in addition to the manuscript, have also begun to work on the Power Point Presentation that I have to do as well, finding it easier to do the two almost side by side.
My mentor is also teaching me to copyright properly, that is beginning to be good fun.
As I will also have to do a video style presentation, bought myself a microphone so that I can do speak overs, let the fun, or battle commence. It is very slow going, which probably accounts for my mood, but if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well. In case you are wondering my computer is so old it does not have a microphone attached.
Not sure if I mentioned it before, but this presentation and the next two, have to have their own domain and website, to enable me to sell the product(s). With being with Wealthy Affiliate, I did buy some domains just in case I needed them, these have not been launched onto the web yet, so I am using them for these projects. This has saved me the trouble of buying domains and hosting.
When I work out some of the almost hidden savings that I get here, it does work out to being even more worthwhile being a member, not to mention the company that I get to keep.
Did have three dozen Geranium plug plants arrive yesterday, so will need to plant them up when I finish these few notes.
One bit of good news which has cheered me up, is that County Cricket will be returning in May, it is restricted to Members only, but it will be nice to be able to get out in the sunshine again and relax. Think that it will feel as if the world is returning to normal once more, though I doubt that it ever will properly
The Next Few Days
The weather could play a part here as I do need to get on with sorting the garden out, before it reverts back to nature and becomes a jungle once more. Have managed to weed and sort out my main herbaceous bed, have got some gaps, so will be ordering some more plants, to change the scenery a little.
Will continue to work on my projects, this reminds me, I did not add anymore advertising this week, will try to do that when I get a minute, yes, I know, make time.
In addition to the work set by mentor, must not lose sight of the Family History, or in fact the site that virtually runs itself, need to pay that a visit o make sure that it is still running smoothly.
How can I possibly get fed up, when I can think of so much that needs doing. lol!
Despite my own feelings and general could not care less attitude this week, do feel, having read my notes again, that things are not really that bad. Possibly a little down with lock down getting to me.
Still the clocks go forward on Sunday, giving more daylight in the evening, and the drab nights will be no more for a while at least.
It is possible that I could visit my little studio (the old summerhouse) at the bottom of the garden and do some painting, something that I have not done for quite a while, do find it very therapeutic as I do when I meditate.
Be Happy, Healthy and Wealthy,
Please do stay safe,
