    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 I think the idea is to keep the blog updated. So you can get traffic. What is your blog about?

      @cisclub Lol I have several blogs, which one? Yeah I understand that I have to post post post! I just want to get AdSense going, and maybe an alternative or so. Lol I'm pretty sure those come after a steady influx of traffic though.

        @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.

    I want to set aside time for journaling and prayer each morning. Not that I don't have time, just that I often get distracted by stupid things. Not the least of which is a very demanding cat who wants my attention every 15-20 minutes or so.

      @hopeslife Welcome back 🙂 A number of studies have shown that to get the most out of sites like this it's actually better to not have a huge list. There are a few reasons for this. Keeping a list of goals your proactively working on tends to be more motivating than a huge list of stuff on the back burner . Also it can be a little overwhelming, and even put you in a bad mood/demotivatinh if there is more things on your list you're not doing or can't do right now, than things you are making progress on . Maybe make a few 'umbrella goals' to add entries to, like " make a bucket list " , "Have a five-year plan" etc then as the stuff on those lists actually presented self, you can make them be their own goal again?

        @wordsncolor This is true. Although I find the 101 in 1001 concept to be beneficial. Although it seems the 2.5 year deadline never works for me lol. I do keep a list of things I'd like to do in the next few years. Maybe I'll put those under a goal about long-term goals. By the way, my PC list only has about 60 things on it. Some are to-do list like tasks for the month, some are bucket list type goals, and some are daily things that I really need to keep working on.

    Well not much anymore after today. Switching back to PopClogs. Oh don't worry I'll probably be here every couple weeks or so just to check in on everyone. I really do like the unlimited goals feature, and I don't want to make multiple accounts or goals to make other goals lol. The only exception I have to that is my yearly list. Search for "Hope" there and you should find me if you're already there. If you aren't it's easy to sign up hah.

        @Andia It does have the same community although maybe a bit smaller. If people start using the site though it wouldn't be all that small. If you can give me the link to your goals page I'll follow you. Not only that but you can have as many goals as you want lol. The cheer system is a bit convoluted, you cheer the goal and not the user's progress, but other than that the features are mostly the same.

        I find it to be a more confusing site over there just my opinion.
        I was over there but jumped at the chance to come back to 43Things!
        It was too hard to stay on 2 sites at the same time.

    It's been hard to do this lately because the spammers are so very annoying. We had problems with spammers on the old site too, but they were always deleted into oblivian. Not only that, but it seems people are less active here lately. I know we're just coming out of Summer, so maybe that will change in a month or so when the weather cools. I'm thinking for now I'll try to spend time here 2-3 times per week. Also I'm not getting notifications of cheers, mentions, etc via email. I'm thinking it's just my email address though.

    Oh man, do I have lots of it! I used to call myself a candy collector. I want to get rid of it so that if I really, really want it, I have to go buy it. Yeah this means I'm going to have to buy healthier things like nuts etc. I have a thing for carrot chips so will get those next time I'm at the store. Will probably pick up some almonds and wallnuts as well. If I really want something sweet, I might pick up a little bag of carob chips to mix with the nuts. Also dried fruit will work for that. I want to do a nuts.com and/or naturebox.com order at some point. Lol I used to order bad things from nuts.com.

The hygienist said I didn't have to use it, (yay!) She said all that does is contain floride, and I can get that with a floride rince. She said it doesn't matter if I get the adult one or the kid's bubblegum one, it still contains the same amount.

    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 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.

    Between bananas with breakfast in the morning, and every recipe having a fresh vegetable in it this time, I'd say I'm doing pretty well at this. Lol, I think i bought the Produce section when I went to the store on Monday.

    I'm trying to eat more plant-based things in general. Breakfast included a Banana with cereal. Lunch was a tomato and cheese sandwich, (yeah plain, I didn't put anything else on it,) and a couple of those small oranges. Dinner was interesting lol. I had a Kiwi, cheese slice and carrot chips. My caregiver and I will be cooking vegetable beef soup tomorrow, which I can't wait to try! It's a recipe I found somewhere, lol now I can't remember where.

    Some days are better than others, but I'm definitely trying to work on this. Trying to eat more fruit with and for breakfast, to have my caregiver cook more fresh foods etc.

    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.
