The June Variety Article Writing Challenge on Facebook requires me to post the three things I completed today as my blog post. Following the rules for the challenge, you will find that most of the day escaped me, but I did manage to get three things done!
Project #1: Infographic
In May, I hired a girl to do my proofreading for the Infographics KickStart package. Since then, I’ve been slowly sending more work her way because I realized I am one person and can no longer do this Internet marketing thing alone.
Not if I expect my online business to grow!
I sent her my 10 Ways to Recycle Infographics graphic to her last night to proof for me. Well, this morning I woke up to an email from her telling me she did not receive the attachment. I sent it again.
I also realized if I wanted to add it to my blog today I needed it proofed fast! That’s not giving her much time so I sat down today and scanned it. Well, the day isn’t turning out too good for me because I spent way too much time going over it.
Ironically, Minna had finished the proofreading and sent the changed copy back to me. I should learn to let things alone so people I hire can do the work I am paying them to do! :)
Project #2: Embed Code
I never posted an infographic to my blog with an embed code. I searched Google to learn how. This became project #2 for the afternoon.
I’m pretty well rehearsed with HTML code, but I have to admit that this coding took longer than I originally anticipated and I spent a good hour or so just getting a tiny bit of code programmed into the text box. How sad that I am such a perfectionist and refused to give up!
This cost me half of the afternoon between searching on Google and actually getting the code programmed into the WordPress box! The outcome is that I have the embed code working and now you can share it on your blog too!
Project #3: New Facebook Group
I started a new Facebook group for accountability and support as it relates to my health. Then, I invited people from my community to the group. These gals are interested in reclaiming their health.
Of course, I’m not sensible enough to write out the syllabus for this group before creating it, but I went ahead and did it anyway! Then, I went over to Name Cheap and secured the domain name too! LOL

These three projects sum up my entire day. It’s a good thing that the requirement today wasn’t for five things to complete because I only managed to get this little bit done! I can already hear the partner walking in the door.
Luckily for me, tomorrow’s post is already finished! It’s a step by step tutorial; I worked on it at the beginning of the week so I’m golden for Saturday!
What did you manage to get done today? Leave a comment below and let me know!
