Based upon my desire to publish one Hub during the week and two on weekends, I am struggling just a bit to keep the pace. By this point in February, I should have had 7 Hubs published. Instead, I have only five. I guess I shouldn't say only since that is still a decent number.
Plus I have to consider the fact that the past week I felt like I was fighting a virus and required a lot of extra sleep. I was incredibly tired and slept about 3-4 extra hours each day compared to my usual. Now I feel like I am 100% so I would anticipate being able to get some more work done this weekend despite all of the home responsibilities as well. I am feeling energized and motivated!
I haven't been as diligent at publishing backlinks either. I am seriously wondering about their effectiveness with Google going after content mills if some of the linking sites will be on the radar. I would hate to think that any effort at SheToldMe or Redgage would be all for naught. That is why I am thinking I should continue to focus more heavily on content creation than anything else.
I may even consider writing some product Hubs at HubPages in the near future as well. I am starting to see some results from Amazon and am seriously thinking that might be a valuable method to diversify a little of my writing. I still feel awkward recommending any products that I have personally not tried. Nor do I feel that I could write a Hub on "the best" such-and-such since how do I know it is the best?! To me that seems like opinion only unless there is some data supporting such an assertion.
Anyway, I am still debating the product angle. I will continue to work hard and write at HubPages until I can consistently earn $100 per month. Then I will diversify some more since it is impossible to know when a particular site might fall by the wayside. Can't have all my eggs in one basket. In the meantime, I better get working so that I can get 3 or 4 Hubs done this weekend and get back on track.
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
