    Lol, all the blogs! Need to track traffic reliably though, without using Google Analytics. GA is a pain for me to use! There are WP plugins that do a good job of tracking traffic.

        @hopeslife You should join facebook groups that are related to your blog, then to post your articles in these groups, but your posts should be able to go viral. Most suitable blog niches for this are: Entertainment, Sports, Health, Cars etc. you can also post in reddit.com and other social media. My friend has ~10k daily hits on his blog by doing this.

    OK, I'll take your prayer requests if you put them here. Lol as long as you'll take one from me. I've missed church for the past 3 weeks now. Yesterday I had such a bad headache and was nauseous, I felt like I was going to throw up in church if I went. The 2 times before, I overslept. I'm wondering if this is a sign from God that it's time for me to find a new church? Please pray for wisdom for me, thanks!

It sounds like an interesting thing to practice, and will help me memorize scripture, (because I don't hold a book on my lap.) Here's a site on Centering Prayer: http://www.centeringprayer.com/

    1. Establish an editorial calendar/posting schedule.
    2. Build the about me page. It was built when I was at the old host, I forgot to export content so I lost it. Lol just did that today after I made my list.
    3. Start a newsletter.
    4. Figure out how to make videos accessibly. As in, what can I use to make them?
    5. Build the affiliate disclosure policy page.
    6. Join affiliate networks.
    7. Set up ads. Try adsense, but also set up a couple of the alternatives.
    8. Install a social sharing plugin.
    9. Create a logo for the blog.
    10. Add Twitter and Facebook widgets.
    11. Generate more post ideas.
    12. Publish some of the lists I make. I just posted the daily habits one a couple hours ago.

    1. Pray every morning and evening.
    2. Make these lists daily!
    3. Read the bible everyday.
    4. Learn something new.
    5. Daily blogging, well at least 6 days a week anyway.
    6. Surrender my life to God each morning.
    7. Go back to drinking coffee daily. There's just something about coffee that says, "I'm ready to start the day!"
    8. Exercise every weekday.
    9. Start bible journaling again.
    10. Read books other than the bible.*
    Well tecnically I did this a few days ago so will still have to come up with one for today, but this is a good example.

    So this comes from the "write 10 ideas everyday" thing. I saw an article somewhere, (I can't find it anymore,) that said to just make a list of 10 things about anything! I've done this a couple times already, but I'd like to get into a daily habit. This will help me with my "Journal daily" goal, making a list is easier for me than just writing a long entry about whatever, for some reason.

    I want to develop a plugin for WP that's better than Press this. So kind of like the old version of the Tumblr bookmarklet, where everything is inline. As in link title, link URL, description, tags etc. I'm not a fan of the newer version of PressThis, and I need something to use for a bookmarklet for the linkblog.

    OK so I've done a few new things lately, mostly tested new services and tried new foods, but what the heck...


    1. Tried the Dominos version of Hawaiian pizza. It's called Honalulu Hawaiian, and it's really good!

    2. Started going to a new church! I really do love my new church! I liked my old one still but decided that after 10 years, and falling asleep during sermons, I needed a change. Hah I can't fall asleep during my new pastor's sermons, he jumps and yells and screams a lot and keeps me awake!

    3. Tested the Yandex browser. https://browser.yandex.com/desktop/main/

    4. Tested theBrave browser: http://brave.com I'm personally helping the developers incorporate accessibility features in there.

    5. Signed up for http://minds.com Minds is supposed to be an alternative to Facebook and/or Youtube. I haven't played too much with that one, but it looked pretty good.

    1. Started my first niche blog. Ok I suppose you could argue that personal blogging is a niche, but there's no better niche than documenting something that you're doing, and I'm doing this with my business blog.

    2. Bought 3 sites off Flippa. I'd never used Flippa before, so I decided to learn this year.

    3. Applying for a loan. Did this about a week ago.

    4. Joined an internet marketing course. Lol I've been blogging since 2003, but I didn't care all that much about SEO etc, now I'm really enjoying it!

    5. Setting up a savings account online. When I set up my first account, I went into the bank to do it. I was 17 then. I'd long since closed that one, so I set up an ABLE account last month.

    Right now, I'm trying to hip mom to the fact that I don't have non-24. I do however have insomnia, and when I get headaches, sleep is usually out of the question. Lol right now, I have what I like to call "internet I don't want to go to bed syndrome." Lol because I've been up until 2 or 3 for the past couple weeks just looking at things. Here's a Wikipedia article about non-24. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-24-hour_sleep%E2%80%93wake_disorder Some people may think that insomnia is involved in the symptoms of non24. However it isn't and it shouldn't be. Insomnia while staying on a completely normal schedule is not non24. It does involve waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep. You then fall asleep at strange times during the day. A lot of people don't understand how bad my headaches can get, so they think me waking up in sheer pain and not being able to go back to sleep again, because my brain feels like it's going to burst out of my head, is some form of non-24.

    Non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder
    Non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder (non-24), is one of several chronic circadian rhythm sleep disorders (CRSDs). It is defined as a "chronic steady pattern comprising [...] daily delays in sleep onset and wake times in an individual living in society." Symptoms result when the non-entrained (free-running) endogenous circadian rhythm drifts out of alignment with the light/dark cycle in nature. The sleep pattern can be quite variable. People with a circadian rhythm that is quite near to 24 hours may be able to sleep on a conventional, socially acceptable schedule, that is, at night. Others, with a "daily" cycle upwards of 25 hours or more may need to adopt a sleep pattern that is congruent with their free-running circadian clock, shifting their sleep times daily, thereby often obtaining satisfactory sleep but suffering social and occupational consequences. The majority of people with non-24 are totally blind, and the failure of entrainment is explained by an absence of photic input to the circadian clock. These people's brains may have normal "body clocks", but the clocks do not receive input from the eyes about environmental light levels, as that requires a functioning retina, optic nerve and visual processing center. The disorder also occurs in sighted people for reasons that are not well understood. Their circadian rhythms are not normal, often running to more than 25 hours. Their visual systems may function normally but their brains are incapable...

Someone reacted as "sad." I commented that I'm a naturalist that is, I believe God made me the way I am for a reason. However, that doesn't mean I can't use tech to augment things and make life easier. It would be cool if people could get over the misconception that being blind is this sad, bad thing.

      @Queen Purrs Like A Kitten  I will but which one? Lol, I have 4. I'm in the process of moving a couple of them to a different host, so content will be thin. Tell ya what, I'll give you links to my personal blog and my linkblog, then when I get a few more posts on the other ones, I'll share them. If you read my entry on the "Describe my life since the old 43T times goal," I do share a couple of them.

    Lol, I decided to take on a project! I'm reading 2 translations of the bible. One I downloaded from the Kindle store, and the other I got from bookshare.org. The daily email thing hasn't been working all that well for me, so I decided to try it this way.

    I just finished Sensable Shoes! I'm all prepared for the Readathon next weekend, except for the fact that I haven't gotten the book yet, because I'll be tempted to start reading before next Saturday.

    I'm on Chapter 5 of Sensable shoes. I'm going to participate in the 24 hour readathon next month. I'll be reading 1984, and another book I haven't chosen yet, (just in case 1984 isn't long enough to last the entire 24 hours.

    I'm actually doing better at this! I love frozen bananas and blueberries! I've also eaten plain carrot chips a few times, I do like those.
