As part of my new schedule, I want to start the week on a positive note. Each week, starting from today, I want to start with listing out a top 3 items, things I want to have achieved by the end of the week.
Then, at the end of each week, I will revisit this weekly post, and hold up accountability for the achievements I accomplished to complete and what I learned.
So, this week I wanted to try and try to achieve the following goals:
- Setup an affiliate sales site using Amazon, a domain I already have and a new plugin I purchased
- Create and post a picture of the week post
- Look at starting a new podcast
1. Setup an affiliate site
So, I have looked at this in the past. I have taken a look at a number of WordPress plugins over the past number of years, each saying that it’s easy to set up an Amazon based affiliate site. In some of the cases, it is easy to set up posts with products, but you need to spend some time adding new products, and so on.
So, this last week I discovered WP Automatic. This is a plugin that you can purchase, then set up to add products from a few different sources from your affiliate profiles on those sources. This week I want to use an older domain name I have (nearly 2 years old and was going to let it expire) to see if I can, indeed, set up a self-contained site with items being added by this plugin from a couple of sources, namly Amazon and Clickbank.
2. Create a picture of the week post
I’m mentioned this recently as a possible new post type. I love taking photo’s when I can, and so wanted to pick the best of the week and post it on this site as a picture of the week. I’m not sure how many pictures I will be getting to take, but this week I want to start with a picture of this week.
Let’s see if this works as a post or not.
3. Start a new podcast
So, I’m no stranger to podcasts. I have, in the past, started one and run with it for around 10 weeks. The problem was, the subject didn’t lend itself well to what I wanted to do.
Now, I’m not sure what this podcast could be about, maybe on the subject of this site – namely being a parent of a child on the spectrum. However, I want to at least try and see how well it works. If it doesn’t, well, at least I have tried this subject and its onto planning the next.
On that subject, if anyone does want to try doing a podcast with me, then please get in touch.
So, that’s my set of 3 objectives to do this week. I think there are some interesting ones there, some that may even help push me forward. So, let’s all see how well I can get on with them (as well as working full time). See you all next Sunday on the look back through.
I recently came across the following quote
“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”
― Maya Angelou
This is my new goal in life. Not to conform to be normal, but to be amazing and I hope to inspire you to be amazing too.
