Yesterday I made a commitment to get my blog on track and post everyday. My biggest problem is coming up with ideas on what to write about in order to set myself apart from the rest of the same old boring blogs. To keep things on track, I’ve decided that I almost need to set a theme for everyday in order for ideas to start flowing for me. Sundays will be contest posts and Mondays will be motivation ideas to keep myself on track.
Monday is a great day for me to post about motivation, it’s the day that I hate to see come out of all of them in the week. Monday is also countdown day to Friday, not a good way to spend my life and I have found over the last six months to a year that the biggest roadblock towards working for myself is myself. Please don’t come here looking for “you-rah-rah” posts because I’m not that type of person. These are motivation and time management ideas that work for myself and hopefully you can find something here that may work for you. Who knows, it could give you a reason to stop and just say “that girl’s a nut job”.
A couple of weeks ago Unconventional Marketing spent a week giving back to the readers of his blog because that is the type of person he is. Josh is one of the most kind and thoughtful bloggers I have run into around the bloggosphere so far. I’m a little behind with this, but on July 30th, Josh said some very kind words about Down On Our Luck in one of his giving back posts. His kind words have given me more energy to keep this blog running and get back to updating regularly. I will also be taking his Q&A idea and incorporating it into my blog on Wednesdays which is the day I’ll be answering questions. Feel free to leave a question as a comment on any of my posts and I will make sure to answer it on Gambling Addiction Q&A Wednesdays. If you have a question about something else, feel free to comment it as well and I will make sure to answer it.
I don’t want to make this look like a sidenote, but Unconventional Marketing is worth checking out no matter what type of business you’re in. Josh is a very insiteful young man (he’s only 24) who shares his thoughts about online marketing as well as offline marketing. I have found his feed one that’s definitely enjoyable to find in my inbox.
Food for fodder: do you work a “day job” while trying to run your online business? What do you do to stay motivated during the day and keep your energy up at night?
