SCV Internet Marketers 30-Day Blog Challenge

Today is the very last day of the 30-day blog challenge that was posted by the SCV* Internet Marketers group.  It’s a group of people who teach others how to make money using the internet and this challenge was a great motivator for a few of us who are determined to do something on the side.  I don’t live anywhere near Santa Clarita Valley, nor do I go to any of their group sessions, but I was encouraged to join this challenge for the opportunity to learn something by Chris, the host of this challenge, and a pretty successful internet marketer (in my opinion, anyway).  At the end, the survivors earn the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for a Barnes and Noble Nook.  I think there are 8 of us surviving and I’m cutting it super close as it’s currently 11:11 pm and the blogs have to be submitted by midnight each night.  It has been a very long month and I’ve been up late almost every night because I can’t get it together enough to blog earlier in the day or write enough to have stored entries to submit at a later date like of the other people who are way more organized and impressive than me.  It’s okay, though.  I made it – or will make it in a few minutes.  I have been blogging for about 4 years, very inconsistently.  I think I have maybe 2 or 3 entries for the entire 2011. 

This challenge made me start thinking about things I can post again.  And having Baby Mochi around, it’s like an endless stream of ideas.  Also at the end of this challenge, I will get assistance to see how I can refine my site so I’m not so random.  I’ll figure out which posts brought higher traffic and what people searched to bring them to my blog.  I just signed up for both a Google AdSense and an Amazon Affiliates account.  Ads will start populating my site and hopefully I’ll begin to start having a small stream of income each month.  The short-term goal is to earn enough to support my Starbucks addiction.  The long-term goal is a much better one, singularly utilitarian, and fat-free.  It’s a secret, though.  I have to wait til I generate a little income before I disclose it, but when I do, you’ll be the 1st to know.  Well, maybe second or third, but you’ll still be up there in the ranks.

And finally, since the rules state that I have to post a picture with every blog entry and I don’t really have one fitting this entry, I’m going to share this new cool item I just got.  It’s a set of colored pencils from Barnes and Noble that fit in a CD case.  It was under $5 and so portable, I couldn’t resist!
