I wasn’t going to post today but after the day didn’t go as planned I thought why not. I had intended to work on my digital designs and a page from my weight loss planner but so far that has not happened. My motivation is so not there. Not sure how I finally picked up my laptop and started working on this.
Instead, I have been playing around with this WordPress blog. I couldn’t get the comments to work on it and it took me forever to figure it out. Seems it is just a fluke with the user interface and all I had to do was uncheck and then recheck the comments box and refresh. Wala, comments are now working.
Then I only wanted to show an excerpt of my blog post on my home page instead of the full page of my latest post. Not sure if I have that fixed yet or not. Will find out after I post this. WordPress has so many features but it does have a fairly high learning curve. I am only using the free one so many of the options are based on premium users. One day when I am actually making money from my site I will upgrade and get a domain name.
I am so not in the mood to do anything today but I will never run a successful business if I let my mood judge what I do. That is what I keep telling myself. I guess doing this is better than laying my head on the couch with my eyes closed and doing nothing but I would still rather be doing nothing instead.
I may start to work on a graphic design but I can’t guarantee that. I would like to get at least 5 a week done and at least 3 pages towards my planner. With a full-time job that may be too high of a count but that is what I would like to work towards. Sometimes I feel like I will never get this up and running because I am not skilled enough in Photoshop to work on the graphics. There are many tutorials on Youtube to learn but the problem is, what am I looking for. Oh ya, and the motivation.
There are a ton on how to use layer masks, blend photos, and more but I don’t think that photo manipulation is what I need to learn. I will not be working on photos but more of a graphic, embellishments, and brushes. I would love to learn how to design my own graphics but right now I will have to use commercial free ones. The good ones cost money though and right now I don’t have a dime to spare.
What have you done today towards making your business successful?
Until next time…
