Ups and Downs
There are so many ups and downs in life and with my businesses that I can hardly keep up. I feel like I am in the ocean where the waves ebb and flow constantly. Someday I will have amazing sales and this will be a full time business. In the meantime I think it is good to show that this takes a lot of work and patience and there are as many lows as highs.
Up: I had a record setting month for Amazon sales!
Down: I lost a premium referral.
Up: The offer from Consumers Advocate to share my post in exchange for a mention on my review was awesome. I got some extra traffic from that share on Facebook. That seemed to help boost my rankings and traffic overall.
Down: I guess their share was a one time thing so I won't get any lasting benefit out of it unless I can find more topics where I can include their reviews in exchange for shares.
Up: I finally got a new post added and I have been doing lots of keyword research so I have more post ideas laid out.
Up: We have someone who seems really interested in one of the apartments. She filled out an application and we told her she could have it.
Down: She still hasn't confirmed if she will take it and it is the first of the month.
Up: My rankings and traffic are going up and it is great!
Down: I had to stay home from work sick again.
Up: We are going to a belated birthday dinner with some good friends that moved back to Alaska tomorrow and it will be great to see them.
Up: It is beautiful and sunny and the leaves are coming out.
Down: I am allergic to the pollen which is causing widespread inflammation and reactions so I am not sure how much I should be out in it.
Onward always, don't quit.
