Have been a little quiet here the last week or so, well, it’s holidays and having my youngest over is more important. 😉
Hope you all had a good holiday too.
We have all been blessed with some great weather over the whole holiday period… bonus!
It also give me a few days, or nights should I say, to take a step back and have a good look at things, partly the move to WP has given me some food for thought, yet I also mean taking a step back on the whole.
Where I want to spend time, effort energy and how.
The recent ning issue has also given me food for though, as I have the Portlanders social site on ning, see what happens soon enough with that, though I do think they shot themselves in the foot there.
I digress… so… where was I?
Making money online is the bottom line
So, I have given some thought to what I am going to be spending effort on and how, after all, part of the aim is to get more…
Which means working smarter as well as harder and yes I do need to work harder too. 😉
To some making money online is a dirty thing, they feel everything should be free, well, when they put food on my table, then they get a say. 😉
I ain’t doing this shit for nothing!
Part of the process is trimming down the fat, so to speak, getting rid of some of the duds will lesson the workload and give me more time to work on what works, or at least do more testing on where things look worth doing.
Less is more!
One area on this blog I am taking into consideration is to have some private post, post where I can share more of this with members only and not tell the world, IE any competition what I am doing. 😆
Just need to work out how to set that up, I am sure some of you smart people who know WPress better than I will chip in within the comments on that, interested to know what can be done, free members, paid, that sort of thing, post restrictions. 😀
I would be sharing the plans, ideas I want to implement, how I implement them, and of course the results I get, then share what lessons I learnt, what you can take from it.
The platform, it matters in both senses
The recent WPress move has given me some serious food for thought and I have noticed some interesting things as a result of that move, blogger and WP are VASTLY different. 🙂
As you can see here, this blog and my local based one ~ Portland Bill ~ are two I will definitely keep, two that you know about, yet the local one is one I want to also use within the private post here, I have good plans for it and feel excited at the possibilities.
One is WPress, one is on blogger, and the blogger one won’t be staying there at this rate…
But it also matters the platform you want to make money online from, not Blogger vs WordPress, but the site, niche… yeah, that platform. 🙂
There are a million and one niches anyone can test when it comes to this making money crap, boring, tedious and frustrating at times, yet we often miss what’s right under our noses.
Apart from here…
Portland Bill is one site I want to monetise better and that doesn’t mean making money from the locals, friends, just your eyeballs and clicks are enough, in fact friends would be helping me in my main objective, freely. 😉
What’s your take? Would this appeal?
