Blogging Challenge – Day 6

Enjoying a Glass of Wine & Reflecting on Today ‘s Tasks

I am sitting here with a lovely glass of Rose wine, happy that I have been able to tick off the things that I wanted to get done today.

This 30 day blogging challenge is definitely working for me so far.  This is brilliant news.

In time, I hope to be able to add a few more tasks to my daily ‘To Do’ list but for the time being, this is what I have done so far.

Tasks Completed on Day Six

  • Created New Squidoo Lens
  • Typed Up Kindle Pages for My Children’s Book
  • Added Links Via Hootsuite

Today’s New Squidoo Lens

It still took a long time to put my new lens together.  Cutting and pasting 6 individual Amazon products took about 45 minutes.  and I still had two more modules to go!

The advantages of adding the links manually is that you will earn 100% of the Amazon commision if someone clicks through and makes a purchase.  That is why it is worth doing but it just takes sooo darn long!

I ended up filling the other modules with less links and I added a single feature lens to highlight one product.

The lens is all about Red Knee High Boots.  What do you think?

My Next Children’s Book

I had written a few pages during my commute to work and during my lunch hour. I now had to try and deciper my scrawny handwriting and transfer my ramblings to my laptop.  The story is finished but it seems a little short.  I will have a little think about whether to add another section or to leave it as is.

A Little Bit of Social Media Work

I am not really a Facebook person or a Twitter user. I think most people use these programmes on their phones which makes it easier to stay connected.   It takes me a while to log in and catch up.

If I can use them as a marketing tool, then I will try my best.   I think that is why I like the idea of being able to use Hootsuite, one of the may scheduling platforms, to set up short messages and links to publish to these sites.

I have scheduled links to my squidoo lenses and blog posts so that they will be published over the next few days.

So that’s me for today. :)

Have Your Say: What do you think of the red boots? yeah or nay? Are you still on track with your own challenge? Feel free to comment.
