thumbs-upSo this is what happened this week:

The ‘up’ times


I decided to employ someone and ‘outsource’ some of the administrative and everyday tasks associated with my online business.

I was spending so much time doing all the things you have to do to keep several sites up and running, that I was finding no time to create any more of my own products.

So, this week I have been handing over work to my new employee.

I’ve been creating videos to help her quickly come up to speed and I must say, the early stages in the ‘partnership’ are turning out pretty well.

So far, so good.

I shall keep you posted.

Product Creation

Over the last few weeks (and while on holiday – naughty, naughty!), I’ve been putting together a high level outline of my next product. It’s going to be a weekly course on blogging starting off right from finding the best domain names through to building your blog, building lists, traffic, marketing, JV’s, copywriting, squeeze pages, affiliate marketing and, of course, outsourcing. Basically everything I’ve learned from the past 3 years on making money on-line.

As when I started several years ago, there are still many individuals who would just love to blog and make a blog income from their efforts. But they work full-time and only have a few hours to spare.

My blogging course will be structured and give them weekly small baby steps to follow and assignments to finish. Each week will follow on from the previous week.

That way, individuals won’t be overwhelmed.

I know when I started I was. I didn’t know where to start, so I’d like to share my experiences and what works for me.

And now I’ve outsourced some of my daily work, I’ve got the time to create the course – well that’s the theory!

So watch out for the launch!


I re-added Google Adsense to a couple of my ‘back burner’ sites this week. Back burner because I don’t do much with them. I set them up and let them run on their own. Other people tend to add articles and blog posts to them, so they just simply tick over.

Well, I made $7 this week!

I can’t retire on that but if it carries on like that, it will easily pay for the monthly hosting costs and I don’t have to do anything!


I’ve received a decent amount of comments this week – so thank you to all those who took the time out to drop by and comment. I really appreciate it. Getting comments makes you feel good, so please comment and keep coming back!

The ‘Down’ times

None! Brilliant!
