Week one went great! Because week one always goes great. I love starting things. It’s why I enjoy Mondays.
The start of this project also coincided with a work drought. No matter how hard I try to find an office work job that will keep me busy–or even just steady–for all 8 hours, I have not been successful. In this job, sometimes projects push and then there is nothing to do.
After decades of being frustrated by this, I have rebranded that time as “paid blogging time.” This makes me feel much better. And so four hours of my “after work” work was done at work this week.
I finished going through all of the steps in ESI Money’s “Five Steps to Creating a Winning 25K Blog” It’s a five-part series and was quite thorough. Having just completed a business plan for my copyediting business, this felt similar. Plus, I learned a bunch of website things I didn’t know, even after having this blog for more than 10 years.
I also worked through 50 Essential Setting after Installing WordPress for Three Sentence Movie Reviews. I did that with my copyediting website and found it helpful.
I did the exercises in the “Start your 25K blog” series for both websites, but now I will focus on Three Sentence Movie Reviews. Next week I will download a theme and get going on getting it to look like I want. This tends to be challenging as I am only 20% WordPress confident. (Yes, even after all of these years.)
