    Here we go. What is this, week 4 of doing these check-ins?

    I'm taking summer classes, so the summer semester is picking up. Today I was accepted to yet another publication as a contributor. This one is DA80. Looking forward to building a following there. I got a bunch of YouTube videos done for my SEO channel. I closed a couple sales on the side and have a bunch of inquiries I've yet to answer. Finished another milestone for a $60/hr programming gig. I think I did some $120/hr consulting over the phone, can't remember what day that was. I furthered beta testing my SerpClix platform and fixed a whole slew of bugs. Planned out how I'm going to go from 8 projects on the go (or were on the go), down to 3, and wrap up one of them by August. Worked on getting close to exclusive API access for a software I'm building for car dealerships. Lot of big stuff planned moving forward.

    It's Friday, gonna take a break in the afternoon, my new flat screen should arrive today so I've got to set it up and get rid of my old one before my girlfriend shows up and then get back to the grind Sat morning. Probably start worrying about my midterm exam on Monday too.

    What have you guys been up to?

    Let's see. Mon & Tues I spent a lot of time just updating and reorganizing things. Updated all my PBN sites, money sites, upgraded to Windows 10, spent most of Tues just reorganizing my primary 2 desktops. Wed-Thurs I helped my brother finish up his new patio. This was a project 3 weeks in the making.... it was a nightmare but came out beautiful....

    Today I spent most the day at the beach. We had the craziest blueflish blitz I've seen in my life. And I regret not bringing my phone to the beach but I was originally going for a run, saw the locals going crazy then ran back to my house for a net and bucket (no pole).

    Total was 39 snappers. Didn't catch any big blues but only because I wasn't actually fishing. We were all running / swimming through the water with nets.... everytime a blue swam buy I'd scream like a bitch meanwhile this 12 year old kept pulling 20+lb blues out with his hands. I didn't even know anyone but had so much fun. At the end of the blitz there were about 1000-1500 snappers washed up on the shore. You could have filled 2-3 pickup trucks completely full. It got so absurd at one point I shouted "WHO IS KEEPING ALL THESE FISH?!!!" Then some little girl was like "WE SHOULD SAVE THEM!" So we started throwing them back 1 by 1 then there was a crowd of 20-30 people throwing them back.... we did this about 1 hour straight and realized it was pointless. It wasn't people with nets that was the problem the snappers were committing suicide.

    Anyway, great times but I'm tired as hell right now...

    This was right before my dog pulled 1 out of the bucket and I just "fuck it"...

    Nice dude. I'm currently working with an agency that's in the dealership industry. If I may ask, what kind of software are we talkin about. I'm working with an agency to bring a new reputation management tool to the market. Lots of money to be made with dealerships! :D

    Fucked up my site with duplicate content (strange as I wrote it) youtube banned my channel for "copywrite" reasons which was utter bollocks unless my missus is modelling elsewhere... On the plus side, just opened a cold one, so the pain will surely be gone in a hour or so.

    You guys research the topic properly before writing and also you take suggestions for keywords?

    Of course we do. No point in creating bland, unreadable content right? There are timelines set for every order. So the first few days were research only, the last few days were editorial modifications only.

    I like this.

    Can't wait for someone to have a "biggest cock on BHW" banner.

    I can't do it unfortunately, I'm a money whore, not a cock whore.

    Looks like I am getting back on track. Its been months since I am wasting time doing nothing while thinking I was actually working aka procrastinating. I would only work for 2-3 days and rest of the week was just wasting time. Since this week, I have got my schedule right and been working reguarly.. So i got that going for me which is nice :)

    Thanks to your weekly threads that it made me think :)

    1) Started a process that will continue until the end of June making standard operating procedures, to do lists, and Drive folders for all of my scattered projects. the SOP's are for outsourcing work to a VA, which I plan to hire July 1st. Going to start the second half the year at 300% productivity compared to the first half.

    2) Hit the nine pound (~4kg) mark for weight lost in the past two weeks. Taking part in a contest at work. Whoever loses the most weight by July 15th gets about $600. If I win, I'm treating myself to a PS4 or an XBox One finally.

    3) Closed a one time deal with a client to build them a complete branding protocol for their small business. $4,500. They paid, I cashed the check, spent a few hours writing up an SOP, and outsourced it for $500. $200 was for materials, etc, and the other $300 went to the guy I outsourced to. He finished in three days. Client was happy. Added to the portfolio. $4,000 for four hours of work. I think that's my personal dollar per hour record.

    4) Put the finishing touches on my vacation itinerary in June. Score.
