Blogging Challenge – Day 18

I didn’t get as much done today as I had hoped, especially since I had the morning free.

I ended up lounging, procrastinating and watching TV until it was time to go to work.

Got home, enjoyed an Indian curry with  a lovely glass of Chardonnay and got on with my 30 day blogging challenge.

Here are the results for today.

Tasks Completed on Day Eighteen

  • A Fresh New Squidoo Lens
  • Research for New Keywords
  • Made a Sale Today

My New Squidoo Lens

I created a lens for people who are looking to buy a  Polka Dot Teapot. I loved the look of the teapots and the spotted tea sets that you can buy online.

It might seem like an old fashioned notion to use a teapot now that you can buy single serving teabags, but a little bit of nostalgia is great.

Research for New Keywords

I have been using keywords with fairly low search rates. I wanted to concentrate on building and publishing lens and not worry about the strength of the competition.

Now that I know what I am doing, I am stepping up on the keyword research and I am starting to look for phrases that more people are typing into Google and into the Amaon website.  I am still looking but hope to find some real gems that have very little competition but higher search rates.

Made a Sale Today

I made a sale through one of my Amazon links today.

This means that I will receive the whole commission and do not have to share it with Squidoo. This is what I hope will happen on a regular basis.

Making a sale helps to motivate me and proves that I am doing something right.  Long may it continue.

Hurrah! :)

That’s it for today.
