    How do the site masters work it?

    I'm looking at adding several different things to diversify this next year. I have tried a few of the writing sites and have two that I am currently working. I want to add in a few blog sites with niches and then revamp my own personal website to show what all I am doing.

    When I look at it, I know I need to stay organized and on top of things in order to bring in some money and not let anything fall to the wayside. So, how do you all work it? Do you spend a day here at hubpages then the next on a different project or do you do a conglomerate of it all during the day?

            I will. I write romance. It is a little twisted in that most of it deals on some level with a different look at the paranormal.

                You need to ready "Her Fearful Symmetry" by Niffenrager author of time traveler's wife. She sorta has that in her plot.

    Good for you Lynne - I like the way you're planning and getting serious.

    First of all I am a morning hubber. I write my hubs and then I create my backlinks. I have a giant desk calendar with big boxes and I write the hubs (and the hub identity that created them - I do have more than one, but they never come to the forums.) And then I add them to my excel spreadsheet.

    I then take a shower and go out for a brisk 60 minute walk to clear my head and change gears.

    I come back in and I work on my blogs (which also have static pages, so they look more like traditional websites as well). I write a post on most of them. Add this to the calendar and the excel spead sheet. I love to see the blocks fill up with product.

    At least 3 days a week, I visit my favorite stores - Wal Mart, Target, jewelry stores to see what's new. At least once a week I hit the library to read magazines. I spend some time watching QVC. I have a notebook for product trends and good sales copy ideas.

    My workday is about 10 to 12 hours log - six to seven days a week. I have not yet learned the art of passive income.

    Alot of this is spent monitoring merchant emails, updating coupon offers and sales details. Just basic merchandizing. Then I find out that a merchant has thrown me out of a program and the whole work plan goes out the window as I replace a thousand links.

    Taking notes Nelle, taking lots of notes. First order of business then get me a huge calendar not my itty bitty one. Second get familiar with my spreadsheet program.

    CW: you will get there. Organized is like an OCD thing with me. Everything has to be in its place or I can't work.

    Hopefully, more will chime in here.

      I actually have printed out research material. No formal list and that is the problem at the moment. I need to get the other sites set up for the niches and all. I have a website as you know it was dedicated originally to my writing but I want to switch that up. I have an external blog attached to that where I have posted other written articles on varying topics. I also have a wordpress blog that is sitting empty right now.

      All of this needs to be organized and linked to each other as well as my hubpages articles and life123 articles. I'm determined to master this plan though as I'm not finding work outside my home right now.

        Yea I am looking to work on that website of mine now since I too can't find a job. was actually looking into writing greeting cards for some extra money. I read that they will pay $50-150 sometimes even $500 for one verse for greeting cards big_smile
        I think I could do that...maybe you should look into it too!

    Holly: Nelle is a great one to take notes from. I floundered around until I came across her and started studying what she was doing.

    Sounds like a good read. I will have to check that out.

    CW: I might have to look into that card writing thing. Let me know if you do it and how it goes.
