    Thanks, bro. There are 100s of websites and there isn't really much difference between them. The important thing is to be patient and apply only to the jobs where you clearly understand the client's requirement and can see the complete solution in your mind. It's just like applying to jobs in the real world. You just need to carefully pick the select few where you think you'll be able to thoroughly satisfy the client's requirements and apply only to those. Good Luck!

    Green Streak up to #06

    Today being a Sunday, the only thing on my to-do list was to schedule Instagram posts on all 3 of my accounts for the upcoming week. I finished it easily and thus got my Green Day, which took the streak number up to 6!

    Instagram: I posted the scheduled content on all 3 accounts and ran the bot just as usual. Also, like I mentioned, I finished scheduling the posts for the upcoming week. In these new posts, I've reverted back to 30 hashtags as it seems to be getting better engagement than when I used just 7-8 hashtags. Here's the progress graph.

    Freelancing: Although I didn't have anything planned for today, I did do a small project for a client who wanted it done urgently. It got me $5, a bonus considering my target for the day had been only $0. Here's the progress graph for this week.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, my faithful calendar, which is nicely turning greener every day :)

    [​IMG]

    With the rest day done, there's an important second week ahead. However, I'm not too worried, as I know exactly what I have to do to keep the Green Streak going. The green streak will take care of my short, medium and long-term goals. Until tomorrow then guys.

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #07

    Today went perfectly as per plan. I posted content on Instagram, ran the bot and also managed to hit my ideal target of $30. That gives me another Green Day which pushes my streak up to 07!

    Instagram: I switched back to 30 hashtags and saw a slight increase in the engagement level, although it is not even close to the levels my accounts were hitting before the new algorithm kicked in. Not to worry, as all I need to do is keep the green streak going and everything will fall into place. Here's the Instagram progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: I followed the same schedule today, that I'd made a habit out of last week. That means, I managed to reach my ideal target of $30 today. Super happy with that :)

    [​IMG]

    And of course, reaching both my targets earns me yet another nice and shiny Green Day on my neat little calendar. Check it out.

    [​IMG]

    I've actually managed to finish all the tasks for today much earlier, so I'm now heading for a movie to treat myself :D See you tomorrow guys!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #08

    Today too went exactly as per plan and I reached my ideal target of $30 in Freelancing and posted content on all three of my Instagram accounts. These have earned me another Green Day and that has now pushed up the green streak to 08!

    Instagram: I continued with 30 hashtags and have a good feeling about the content that I've scheduled this week. The growth should be good. I also ran the bot as usual on all 3 accounts. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: Like I mentioned, I hit the ideal target of $30 today. Once I start getting comfortable with this number, I should try to increase the ideal target slowly so that the workload doesn't increase too dramatically. For now, it remains. Here's this week's progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And these two combined, have earned me this nice shiny Green Day on my faithful calendar. Check it out!

    [​IMG]

    With work done for the day, I can now sit back and enjoy tonight's Champions League game in peace :D Until tomorrow guys!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #09

    Today was one of those days when I simply couldn't find the motivation to work at all. I had a blistering headache and all I felt like doing was sleep peacefully. However, the fear of losing the Green Streak pushed me to work and I managed to reach my minimum target for the day and got the Green Day.

    I would've loved to achieve the ideal target too, but the headache was just too bad and my eyes were watering a lot. So I stopped at $15 for today. As for Instagram, since it was already scheduled, all I had to do was simply post the scheduled posts and run the bot, which I did with minimal effort. Here are the progress graphs.

    Instagram:

    And finally my calendar, which is starting to look superb now :D

    Hopefully, I'll be able to work better tomorrow and make up for the missed $$s today. Until tomorrow guys!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #10

    Today I was back to my usual efficiency and managed to hit my ideal target for the day. That gives me a Green Day and pushes the Green Streak up to double digits - 10!! Woo hoo!

    Instagram: I posted the scheduled content and ran the bot as per the plan. Everything went smooth and the engagement was good too. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: Today I tried a technique I had read about. Basically, I placed a countdown timer for 2 hours and for those two hours I worked with full concentration. After that, I took a nice hour long break, relaxed, recovered and did yet another 2 hours of work at full concentration. By the time the second 2 hours ticked down to 4 minutes remaining, I had already reached my ideal target for the day! The technique seems to work really well in improving productivity. Let me try it for a few more days and see how sustainable it is. Here's the progress graph for this week.

    [​IMG]

    And, finally, my humble little calendar with yet another day successfully marked in green.

    [​IMG]

    It feels good to have brought the Green Streak number up to double digits. Night of peaceful sleep ahead :) Until tomorrow then, guys!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #15

    Today went exactly as per plan. I managed to achieve my ideal $30 target and posted the scheduled content on Instagram to earn myself another Green Day, thus pushing the streak up to 15.

    Instagram: Like I said, I posted the scheduled content on all 3 of my accounts. One thing I've noticed is that the engagement is very poor if I auto-post the scheduled content through HootSuite. However, the engagement is normal if I manually post the scheduled content through the Instagram app. So I'm sticking to only manual posting for now. Anyway, I also ran the bot with the usual settings. Here's the progress graph.

    Freelancing: I stuck to the task at hand with discipline and achieved my ideal weekday target of $30. Here's the progress graph.

    And here's my neat little calendar with the Green Day marked :)

    Now to listen to some good audiobook and drift off to a peaceful sleep. Until tomorrow then guys!
