2017 list updates.

So we're more than a month into 2017, and I've already completed several things on the list.
Goals completed:
  • Get a haircut. Completed this last month!
  • Look into starting an online business. Also completed last month, I joined WealthyAffiliate Will be starting my shopify store later this year.
  • Start a savings account, and save between $50 -$100 every month. Completed January 2nd, 2017. Currently saving $100 per month.
  • Decide what I'm doing with my blogs. Right now, the linkblog is on Blot, and the personal blog is on Blogger. I'd like to try 10Centuries, but not sure if I want to do another blog migration so soon. Completed February, 2017. Everything's going back to WP! Mostly because the latest versions are pretty stable, and I want to learn to develop plugins.
  • Decide what I'm doing with my online identities and domains. This will probably involve privatizing Twitter, and a new domain for the linkblog. Completed February 2017. Actually, it's going to be a new domain for both blogs, as soon as they get ready to expire.
  • Find a password manager. Completed January, 2017. I'm now using LastPass and loving it!
I have several goals in progress, including the 30 day challenge goal, reading books, excersising every weekday, (currently working on this 43Things goal.

I'm using the new 43Things!

Lol and it's absolutely hilarious! Hah I just had a laughing attack that lasted about 15 minutes over something one of the developers said. Lol OK, so this guy's username is "Sahlavit,) which in my mind gets associated with Lavabit! I sware, this happens every! single! time! So anyway I happen to tell him this that I always think of Lavabit when I see his username. Lol he said, "I'm not encrypted, but I'm reliable, so maybe there are some similarities afterall." OMG! wow... I laughed so loud that I thought my neighbors were going to bust in and tell me to stop. This kept going for about 15 minutes. Then finally, I decided that speaking of Lavabit, since it's 2/19 and everything, I should pre-register for the thing. So I did that whole transaction while laughing about Sahlavit's comment! Lol, just lol and I'm still laughing about the thing.
Anyway, the new 43things.com is epic! Just about everything we've asked for has been implemented, except for the RSS thing. Hint: Lavabit, woops... wait... I mean um...

The past couple days haven't been all that great.

As far as headaches go, I mean. I've pulled 2 all-nighters in the span of a few days, one because I was distracted with stuff and didn't want to go to bed, the other was because I was having a Twitter conversation. Melissa and I were going to go grocery shopping today, but I just didn't feel like it.
In other unrelated news, I'm going to post my Febooary links so far!

I'm officially business blogging!

Yay! I've been blogging on My Biz dventures! I've posted 4 times so far, 2 of them were today. I also got TechSpazz up and running! Yay, I'm so excited! Lol I'll return to regular posts on this here blog tomorrow! I need to post my Febooary links, and update the list of 2017 goals! I was going to do both of those today, but writing 6 blog posts was a bit much.

I'm a busy person!

Lol these days, I definitely am! Between winning several Flippa listings, starting to develop TechSpazz, and blogging over at My Biz Adventures, plus WA training, comments/questions etc. I've become a busy person. Not only did I win TechSpazz on Flippa, but I also won a couple domains. techiedomains.com, and rebid.io. I really don't have any idea what I'm going to do with the latter. Maybe make it an auction site with free listings, free stores, and like a 5-6% commission fee. I haven't really decided all that yet. If there's a way to build a marketplace site on WP, well then I'm going to.

I now own 2 .com domains!

Oh yeah, yes I do! Lol exactly how'd that happen? Well, I bought a site off Flippa! Lol yep, I'm a site flipper now. It's called TechSpazz! Lol I really do like the name, because I'm crazy, and tech is crazy! The other one is my domain for business blogging, as in documenting all my online adventures! I don't really have content written there yet it's just a stub of a site right now. I'll link to it once I can get the pages/categories created, and the first post written!

I'm participating in Febooary this year.

Yeah I am! Lol because tradition is tradition! I'm taking time from generating ideas for my WA site to post this. OK, here's day 1.

Audio recording >>
In the first recording, I talk about audio platforms, and which one I might decide to use.
Here's day 2:

Record audio or upload mp3 >>
In this one I answer the question: "I'm thankful..."

Quick update on WA.

So I've decided to give up my previous niche, and join Affiliate bootcamp. The previous niche was too broad, I guess. I intend to start the toplist site just for fun, but I'm also starting a site to document my business adventures! I've wanted to start that even before I joined WA, but I thought doing something I could write about on a daily basis that could possibly be viral might be fun. I'm sure it will be, for now though, I'm going through the affiliate bootcamp training.

I'm loving life right now!

OMG, you guys! I joined Wealthyaffiliate.com on Wednesday night! Lol don't worry, I'm not going to spam you guys with affiliate links. I don't have them yet, and the link I just put up isn't a referral one. Hey, I'm learning how to use nofollow now, Lol! Anyway, Wealthyaffiliate is a training center for affiliate marketing. I joined because when I create my shopify stores, I want to know how to market them, join affiliate programs in the niche, etc. The training has you go through and create a site, so I created a site called Daily Top Lists. It doesn't have any posts yet so I'm not going to link to it. I intend to get the domain next month, for now, I'm hosted on a subdomain. Anyway, I've had so much fun commenting and chatting and asking questions!!! I've pretty much buried myself in affiliate marketing blogs, newsletters, etc. You guys know that I love creating sites, and I absolutely love blogging! I'm going to have so much fun with this. Oh and in about 3-4 months I should be able to make my first store. I'm so excited for what the year has for me!

I won't be migrating to SunSed.

Mostly because they have a limit of 10000 posts per site. I have almost 2000 here in my archives alone! Not to mention my linkblog, that has over 2000. I need to look at Posthaven, and that will be the last one I look at for a while. Someone on Gab told me they were developing a blog platform. This is good because we need more new platforms in the world! Lol, I told the person that if he gave me everything, I'd pay $120! Everything includes lifestreaming features, the ability to post podcasts, the ability to add custom widgets, support of the linkblog format, and imports from Blogger. I just wish they'd hurry up and get done, so I could test it. I told him I want to be one of the beta testers!

Thoughts from the past couple days.

I watched the inauguration on Friday! I did like Trump's speech a lot. I managed to watch some of the inaugural parade as well. During this time, I was waiting for Lavabit to relaunch! It went live around 2 something. Just when I took a break to go watch the parade, the resurrection happened! Lol I guess that's what happens when I walk away. Services get launched. Lol, I only wish!
I'm testing a new blogging platform! It's called SunSed, and I really like it! I'm thinking I'll be ready to leave Blogger in a couple months, when they release their V3 and add Blogger migration! I'll also be able to restart my podcast, which I've been wanting to do for several months now.
I created my first Subreddit, it's called /r/blogplatforms! I'm always interested in finding new blogging platforms and testing them, so I made this Subreddit to discuss that.

Thursday Lister: ideas.

I've been trying to keep an ideas journal lately. I had a goal to write 10 ideas per day, but I had a hard time getting to 10. This is a list that I wrote today.
  1. I've finally decided on simplrerssreader.com. I really like the interface!
  2. I've been dreaming a lot more recently. Not sure why this is, but the past couple nights I've had dreams. It's very rare for me to dream. I usually do it about once every 2-3 months.
  3. This makes me want to start a dream journal, which is very easy to do in Penzu!
  4. As much as I don't like writing in rich text, I do love Penzu!
  5. I want to migrate my blogs somewhere, but I'm really not sure where yet. I'm testing different services, which seems to be the theme around here lately!

Grocery shopping and pre-flight!

Melissa and I went grocery shopping today. I didn't want to do it on Friday, because I'll be watching the inaugural parade. I can't believe there are only 2 days left! I'm still cleaning out my email in preparation for the big resurrection! The thing is, the pressure is on to get it done now, because well... it happens Friday.
Earlier today, I got involved in this Reddit thread, and had fun scaring pharisees! Tomorrow, I intend to clean out emails from morning to evening, and try to decide between 2 RSS readers!

Blog tweaking, and counting down the days!

I did some blog tweaking over the weekend. I've changed the template, and added Disqus and Linkwithin.
I've started cleaning out my email, in preparation for the flipping the big change switch on Friday! I can't believe there's only 4 days left! I got all my sent items cleaned out today, tomorrow I'll start with trash and spam. Spam will be the quickest, as there's only 159 messages in that folder. While I was cleaning out sent items, I ended up keeping 160 support exchanges that I'll forward over. As a general rule, I keep support exchanges.

The final countdown has arrived!

Until January 20th, that is! yay for the final countdown. It isn't the inauguration I'm so excited about, although I'm interested to see what Trump says in his speech. No, it's the impending Lavabit resurrection! Lol, I told Melissa when we were on the way to lunch this afternoon, that I just couldn't wait anymore! Heh, I can, I just don't want to wait anymore. Anyway, it's now time for me to go to bed so I can get up early. Maybe I'll do a Periscope stream tomorrow! Lol yeah, I've been testing Periscope and actually got it to work.
