Changing your website hosting setup is rarely an enjoyable experience; particularly if you adopt a hands-on approach and deal with it all yourself. The other day I explained my disappointment with VaultPress. I had used the VaultPress backup service since it launched in 2010 and their one-click restore feature should have meant my blog’s migration […]
My Projects Archives...
Where does the time go? OK. I sound like an old man starting an article with a statement like that, but it’s the best way to summarise what I’m thinking. We’re approaching mid October already and I am struggling to work out where the time went. It has admittedly been a while since I’ve had […]
When I first started blogging daily in the mid 2000s, comments were everything. They were a big indicator of a blog’s success and, from my point of view, it was always rewarding to hear from the people who read my articles. Back then, bloggers dictated the discussion point, but readers utilised the comment area to […]
My YouTube journey started a little over four years ago in January 2013. I was travelling around South America at the time so my upload schedule was sporadic, but even when I stopped travelling it would be another few years before I took YouTube more seriously. Today I upload videos to two YouTube videos every […]
Over the last few months I have been publishing less blog posts and publishing more YouTube videos. This was not an accident; it was a conscious decision by me to change what I was focusing on online. I have always enjoyed writing, but I have been focusing on writing articles so much over the last […]
Rise Forums is the internet community I launched in 2013. It focuses on many topics including affiliate marketing, WordPress, website development, hosting and domains, video and audio, and more. As with any website, over time that good looking website design you once loved will start to look old and dated. A redesign of Rise Forums […]
I take a look back at how this blog performed in January 2015. Traffic, income, and expenses, are all detailed.
Every month I give a quick report in my income reports on whether traffic to this blog has gone or up down. Some months my traffic goes up. Some months it goes down. My reports on the growth of traffic to this blog have been uninspiring (to say the least). It is painfully obvious that […]
I hope you all had a fantastic time over the holidays and are now preparing to put your 2015 plans into action. Now that Christmas and New Year have come and gone, it is time for me to look back at how this blog performed in December 2014. December is traditionally a quiet month for […]
My last income report ended on a positive note. Sadly, November did not turn out to be the productive month I had hoped it could be due to circumstances outwith my control. I will talk about these issues later in the report. Firstly, I would like to show you all how much I earned and […]
Another month has come and gone, which means it’s time for me to reflect on how this blog performed in October 2014. Those of you who read last month’s income report may recall that my main goal was to increase traffic and affiliate income. In this report, I will be looking at whether I achieved […]
The first day of the month is a time for me to reflect on how this blog performed over the previous month. This reflection is more commonly known as the “Income Report”. My income reports detail how much I made the previous month through this blog and through freelance blogging. It does not include any […]
