    Used to see these threads weekly from macdonjo and I enjoyed them for motivation, so wanna see a new one if you guys will share

    I've mostly been writing content for for a niche site I'm working on. As i make this thread (taking a break atm) I'm writing a 2k words product review. Also been making a lot of content for web 2.0s I'm gonna use to diversify my anchors. My fingers hurt, and my back, content writing is bitch haha, but I need better content than my competitors..

    So what have you been working on?

    I ran a marathon, climbed mount Everest, jumped off the empire state building, went deep sea diving, wrestled a lion and walked on hot coals, nothing much, a bit of a quiet week really

    I've been trying to favor my own custom options via Google Docs/Sheets lately. I run all my financial tracking through a customized Google Sheet. My to-do list routes from another sheet I designed like a calendar. Days of the week are frozen for reference.

    Here's an example of a calendar box for one day:

    [​IMG]

    I use alt+shift+5 to strikethrough a cell once complete. And above the days of the week is a color legend to keep me on track.

    [​IMG]

    I like the freeze panes option, as it allows me to scroll down once a week completes so I can focus on the current week, but have the previous week available for reference. Or I can scroll to a point where I can see prior week, current week, and next week on one screen. Has worked out extremely well for me. But I'm only on my third week of this system.

    I try to get between 6 and 7 hours a night. Sometimes it's around 5.5, sometimes it's almost 8. My day job has me traveling 20 minutes in some pretty dangerous traffic each way, so I try to stay somewhat rested and caffeinated.

    EDIT: It helps that I wake up at 4am. My morning secret has been staying moving from 4am to 5:30am, then ordering a Grande Starbucks Doubleshot on Ice and a Reduced Fat Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich via Starbucks' mobile app so it's ready when I get there.

    Starting tomorrow, though, the breakfast is going to be replaced with two eggs and some bacon, and a carafe of French Press. It'll probably save me $250 a month, plus maybe it'll help with the weight loss.

    This week I've...
    • Reached out to more than a hundred schools for scholarship links.
    • Redid the scholarship page
    • Closed 1 new client
    • Lost 1 client
    • Wondering why some terms are stuck on page 2.

    Quiet week.

    I owe a lot of the project-based grunt work to my two assistants, as well as hundreds and hundreds of articles of expired content from @bossofthebosses and @littlewebdragon. Get 250 articles and you can have a ten site PBN churning out scheduled weekly posts for six months.

    I usually have tried not to outsource much in the past, but damn when you have stellar help, it's nice to be able to pay the service providers and have things run in the background.
