Category: The Journey

Phase 1, My Blog, is finished.  I thought creating the blog was very straight forward and easy.  This is probably because I had done most of tasks before.  I am currently reading Bloggers Roadmap looking for ways to improve my blog.  I have already found a couple of things one of which I have implemented.

Phase 1 Wrap Up

I have finished Phase 1 of Partnership to Success (building the foundation).  Overall, I would say that the training and videos are very well done.  I thought the tasks during the 8 weeks for Phase 1 could have been accomplished easily in 6 weeks by anyone.  I finished it in 4 weeks because I had done […]

Week 8 – List Building

Week 8 is the end of Partnership to Success Phase 1.  Phase 1 was all about getting my blog all set up.  I will freely admit I am glad Phase 1 is ending.  I think my blog is acceptable, not great but better than some I have seen.  I also have to admit that I […]

Week 7 is about getting my blog ready for the world.  The first part of this is to add “legal stuff” to the blog.  Guess what?  There is a plugin for the legal pages.  The plugin is WP InstaLegalPages.  It contains the following nine legal pages. Affiliate Disclosure Amazon Affiliate Disclaimer (multiple countries available) Anti-Spam […]

Week 5 – Networking

There was almost nothing new this week from a learning prospective. Download a widget, install a widget, activate and set up the widget.  I have done this several times before.  So what was important this week is the use of the new widget. The widget is Widlink.  This is not a widget anyone can find by searching […]

Week 4 – Social Media

This week is about adding social media links to the blog and a couple of clean up tasks. I already had Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin accounts so there wasn’t really anything for me to do from the first video.  I did think that I could use Skype as well but not so.  I spent about […]

Week 2 – Reflections

Before I plunge into week 3, I thought I would pause and share my thoughts about the Partnership to Success program.  With two weeks under my belt, I am impressed.  The videos are very well done.  Occasionally, the screens on the videos don’t match what I see.  That is a because of a difference in […]

Week 2 – Blog Appearance

This week is about improving the appearance of the blog.  Boy does it need it. The first thing needed was a product called OptimizePress.  This is like a super theme or widget, it can be either.  I guess you use it as a widget if you already have a theme you like.  I purchased the […]

Week 1 – The Foundation

Week 1 is about building the foundation needed for the program. This week is not very exciting but very necessary.  First I needed hosting and a domain name for a website.  The recommended hosting service is D9.  I am not familiar with D9 but it doesn’t matter.  I already have hosting with HostGator so I am […]
