My Blogging Life: Thank God Its Friday

TGIF, people. TGIF!!!

I have already been so busy this morning, both with personal stuff and with blogging.

Yeah, I know that you are only hear to read about the blogging stuff…

I know, I know…

Hm. Maybe I should do one of these on my lifestyle blog.

Think it will fly?

Anywho, on to my blogging day thus far.

7:00 a.m.

Got an early start due to my daughter needing a ride to school because she had an awkward project diorama (thank God for spell-check. I was all wrong on the spelling of that one) to carry, so I was up and at checking my stats on Adsense ($0.00 Boo!), analytics, and statcounter.

I also have a kazillion tabs open with posts to read or podcasts to listen to so I knocked out a couple of those first thing in the morning.

8:00 a.m.

Added posts to my buffer. I am slowly coming along with an effective buffer strategy. I loathe sharing the same content over and over and over again so I added some new evergreen type posts into the mix. (Evergreen are posts that, with a few tweaks here and there, will almost always still be good and useful to the reader. For example, my post on getting Hulu Plus for free is evergreen.)

I also realized that I neglected to write the blog link-up post for this week so I quickly got that out so now we are good to go. Go ahead and add your best post. You know you wanna.

10:00 a.m.

Added a Click to Tweet plugin to this blog. I can’t believe that I hadn’t added that yet. Geesh.

Put a couple of my own blog posts on the linkup to get the ball rolling, y’know.

I also added the Inline Related Posts plugin to this blog. You like?

11:45 a.m.

I broke down and made this blog’s home page excerpts.

I held out as long as I could but after seeing my other blog’s bounce rate (the amount of times people only visit the one page on your blog before the, well, bounce (leave)), I just had to do it.

Besides, most people are coming over from a social media or search engine click on one specific post anyway. Very few of y’all (read none) got here by typing in on your search bar.

But, now, if you go to my home page, you can scroll through a quick glance of what some of my other posts are about.

Sorry, charlie, but the name of this game is to keep you on my website as long as possible.

12:00 p.m.

Lunch break!!

Not really…

Ate some grub while taking a “break” and listening to some more podcasts.

1:38 p.m.

Published another page on my housing blog. It is coming along, slowly but surely.

3:45 p.m.

Just spent about an hour culling the herd of the Facebook groups that I am a member.

5:35 p.m.

Completely emptied out my Facebook groups email box. Woo-Hoo!!

6:20 p.m.

Created a new Facebook group that goes with the new purpose of my demographic blog. If you are a member of the working poor, feel free to join up.

7:11 p.m.

Phew. I’m tired! Decided to just listen to podcasts, y’know, with my eyes closed…

8:20 p.m.

I actually remembered 2 nights in a row to fill up my Buffer.

I actually went through some of my older posts and added them instead of the same ol’ ones that I have been sending.

Buffer has a connection with Pablo and I used that to make a few images and send them straight to my Buffer stream.

They weren’t the best and I really need to spend some time updating the images on my blog or, at least, learning how to efficiently use Pablo.


Eyes are closing. Nighty night.
