Month#1 Update

Month#1 Recap – Read, Research and Apply!

I dedicated this month to researching as much as possible about online work from home opportunities and simply disciplining myself to create a schedule.

What I accomplished in Month#1?

  • Created writer, editor and search engine evaluator resume
  • Completed a proofreading and editing course – it was a big, fat book ­čÖé
  • Applied to 25 sites – a mix of writing, SEE, and editing sites (did not expect all to work out and so applied in bulk)
  • Brainstormed writing material for posts
  • Spent 40 min reading every day

The troubling stuff –

  • Man! Discipline. Just could not do 8 hrs a day. Focussing on slow and steady increase for next month
  • Prioritizing where to apply. Wasted my time on few sites that should have been at the bottom of my list
  • Did not write for pay though I had the option (big mistake)
  • Did not complete all the things on my to-do lists

Month#2 Challenge

  • Work 8 hrs a day
  • Publish 10 Safari posts
  • Write 30 articles on iWriter (last priority)
  • Apply as a VA
  • Create a Pinterest account and create boards in my niche

I have not monetized this blog yet. I will wait a┬ácouple of months before I do that. Let’s see how Month#2 goes!
