The 60/30 Rule Report 10/7

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.)

  1. I love that you have a chart. It makes me think that I need to make the same for my dissertation writing. I am about to participate in a 14 day writing challenge – a bit of a mini NaNoWriMo – for dissertation writers. I think such a chart would be a smart move!

    Also – way to be awesomely productive!

    1. But of course you need a chart! Get thee to Micrsoft Word!

      Today I was trying to figure out how I was going to do 4 hours of work on the websites and also do all the cooking for the week. It all had to be done today because I have an all day WordPress conference tomorrow and am entertaining on Sunday.

      But then I realized the all day WordPress conference would totally count as 4 hours of website work. I’m only going because I’d like to become more proficient at WordPress. Phew! Because cooking took up most of the day.
