    Last week's thread got some good responses.

    What have you accomplished this week?

    I've sold a few guest posts, met a client to close a freelance programming deal ($60/hr) and setup a bunch of other potential clients with quotes. I also finished coding my DA 55 guest post site written in Python/Django. Need to start ranking the "write for us" page on Google so I can start selling guest posts there. I declined a 12 month job offer... the first job offer I've ever received. Learned a few things there. Lastly, I finished a 6-person interview to become a paid contributor at a national publication and gained upgraded login access yesterday.

    Now it's Friday, and I'm spending the day cleaning out my condo and throwing everything off the 30-story balcony (kidding) because my girlfriend and I have a sorority birthday this weekend and she likes to offer up all the bed space in the condo to her female friends.

    How was your week? Accomplish anything awesome?

    New job, 1 month today and I start a job, which involves moving halfway down the country to somewhere where I don't know a soul and have only spent like 5 hours of my life there... I'm kind of excited about every aspect of that.

    Crashed my DH bike in Switzerland. Need 5000 eu for a new frame. Awesome week, the weather is great and now I'm stuck at home, while all of my friends are hitting the trails.

    Read lot of bs threads and wrote lot of bs comments too. Had a wonderful time overall. :)

    One great thing also happened: got news this week that my son will soon be going abroad, US most probably, through his sw company. Very happy about that and sharing it with people with whom I'm spending most of my lively hours here. :)

    I moved to co-working hub instead of working from home. This has been the most radical change in my productivity I have ever seen.
    The coworking space I am at is geared towards startups with a few freelancers like me in the mix. Seeing all these people buzzing about, ideas bouncing around and all the networking opportunities has kept me motivated. I wrote more content for my new website this week than I wrote in the past month working from home.

    I built a small web2.0 blog network and my site has appeared in the top 50 for most of the keywords I am looking to target. I have also started taking up freelance content gigs from a few people which should help me manage my bills while I work on my project which is not making anything as of now.

    If things continue the way the are going, I will achieve my goal of logging in 40 productive hours each week. This might not be a lot for many of you, but for an ex-chronic-procrastinator it is a good start. I mostly think in terms of hours rather than money when I want to measure my performance as some of my projects are long term and it might be a while before I can see the cash coming in.

    TL;DR: Moved to coworking hub. Instant boost in productivity. Slight SERP improvement for one of my websites. Took up a few content gigs as a freelancer to help manage the bills while I work on my long term projects.

    About 15k which I lost 7k afterwards due to unlucky streak on betting =) all of it was free money though so I don't really mind losing it. Unfortunately it's not reproduce-able anymore

    Yes, I do have plan, since the new thread which i posted is one of my other best sales thread ever. Yes, Again - It's guest posting :)

    Do you have any good plan ? To sell my service outside of BST, maybe we can JV if the plans are good & i'm damn sure we earn good sum of money together! TY

    I gave a 50% dscount on my ebooks, had few more sales than usual. I am thinking to publish here a "method" I have found out for facebook marketing, I'll share some time soon.

    And today AdSense denied my micro niche site and I was given an advice to apply again without changing anything. Hope it works.

    Cheers! :)
