This third weekly report has not much to report. I didn’t do much in the way of writing, and my habit-building has been off-and-on. Therefore, there’s not much to report. In my search for more income, there’s news to report. I’ve applied and been accepted to Suite 101, which is good news, as their training for writing for the internet is supposed to be top-notch, and is the entire reason that I applied to write for them. In addition to this, I’ve got a gig Guiding for ChaCha. If you want more info on that, send me an email, or a facebook message.
Still working on getting my qigong practice to be habitual. Doing better than last week, but still not where I’d like to be. I’ll get there soon though. Up to 5 days at the regular practice time. I’m finding that before bed isn’t exactly the easiest time for me to remember to practice, but once I make it a habit, it’ll be second nature.
I wrote 5 articles this past week…I think. I’ve been very lax this past week with my log. Next report should show a drastic improvement.
This past week, I received 6 offers for a total of about $25 dollars. I had 11 rejected articles because they were “memoirs” or unsearchable, although I’m not quite sure why thy were considered as such, especially considering that I specifically wrote one of them due to the high search volume that Google’s stats showed, with absolutely no relevant results. I assumed that was a winning combination, but apparently not. Another was rejected due to not citing my sources for knowing Newton’s Laws of Motion, in a piece where I had explicitly stated that I was a physics major… I had thought that Newton’s Laws were relatively common knowledge (required learning for middle-school science in my day) so I added a citation to it, and resubmitted.
This is where I’ve seen a huge improvement over last week. Last week’s report had me at a Clout level of 3, and a page view count of 614. When I checked this Monday, my stats had increased to a Clout level of 4, and a page view count of 932. I’m almost at the first 1000 views! That’s good, because that means that I’m going to start getting performance payouts soon. I’ve also added a new subscriber, whom I’ve subscribed back to, and my Twitter account has been increasing in followers as well. Since the only major information that gets posted there are my articles from here, I assume that means that those people are following to get updates on my writing.
That’s about it for this week’s report. Nothing major yet, but Rome wasn’t built in a day, as they say. Next week’s report should show much higher numbers for article writing than this one did, and hopefully, I’ll be showing some serious improvement in the Habit department. More income is assured, as I have ChaCha to pick up the slack from AC. Much more coming soon.
