Monthly Archives: April 2009
I can’t believe it is Tuesday and nearly at the end of the month. I must admit I am starting to feel like I am getting on top of my workload. I probably have taken on more than I should but it makes life interesting. Although, all being well and if Murphy hadn’t stepped in, things would have not backed up. I had it all planned……
While I am behind in the 31DBBB, that’s the 31 Days to Building A Better Blog, I’m finding it excellent. Instead of just posting whatever, I now have some structure to follow. The blog that I am using, not this one, is one that I had waiting to build, not sure just what I was going to do with it or how I was going to use it so 31DBBB is just the thing.
The tasks for the first and second days, by the time I had finished those, the structure for the blog was right in front of me, mind you, it took me a little while for the ‘light bulb’ to flash on. Main thing is, that it did.
Some of the tasks have been challenging and have taken me out of my comfort zone, that’s a good thing…..afterwards that is. I’ve still a little way to catch up but now that that fellow Murphy has gone, then catch up is on the menu.
If you didn’t get onto this at the start of April then don’t fret, you can still do it. Sign up here and you will get an email each day with your tasks and the link to read the task in detail.
If you blog about anything or want to blog about something then now is your chance to start out right, I highly recommend it.
I said to someone earlier today, free is not always ‘free’ often times it gets very expensive. 31DBBB is the exact opposite, this free is so much value it’s priceless.
So do the Nike thing and Just Do It!
Cheers and take care
The past couple of weeks have been a trifle trying.
Well laid plans………..
I know a short cut……………..
All of the above are what has made my past couple of weeks very trying to say the least.
First of all, Murphy’s law, just about everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.
My well laid plans, they all went astray. What I had planned and what I was able to do, mainly because of the Murphy’s law thing, let’s just say, I couldn’t recognise my plans anywhere.
“I know a short cut”, NOT…….. I do know that short cuts are probably the longest way you can go. The person who told me the ‘short cut’ to reduce the amount of work I needed to do for a project, really meant well, but it didn’t work out that way, quite the opposite, it added probably an extra three days to the project.
At least now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it doesn’t look like a train……
Tomorrow is another day. Time to take stock and get organised but no planning, no shortcuts and I’m not talking to any Murphys for a little while.
Hope your days have been good to you.
There was one thing I forgot to mention with the Custom Payment Page with Paypal and that was, if you have more than one custom payment page that you want to use, you will need to select the Add advanced variables (this is right at the end before you save your button) and then add
Do this when you are setting up the Buy Now, Add to Cart or Pay Now button.
Whichever Custom Payment Page you have selected as your Primary will be used for all your transactions, so the above will get around that for your various website.
Okay, that’s it for now, catch you later and take care
