August known as the Ghost Festival Month in Chinese culture took a hit on me. I was once a very superstitious person but learned to drop that along the way and adopt to a more practical view in life.
So what happened to www.patbagano.com the month of August 2016?
I am blogging with ease and launched my Ebook
Writing is becoming more natural to me again. In fact, I think I write better now than I talk. I think better when I write than I would engage in another activity. I now have 116 published posts which is pretty low compared to my expectation of running around 150 articles or above. Some things happened, and that, you will find out as we go along.
Also published my first eBook for the website, Take It Easy Blogging 1 for free download.
I stalled with blogging after getting Blogger
No, I did not get a blogger. I got Blogger, my sweet baby (puppy) who passed away after 10 days of acquiring her. She caught the Canine Parvovirus which took about 5 days of trying to nurse her back to health. I failed, and she didn’t make it. I know I shouldn’t be saying I failed, but I still feel bad about it and keep on wondering what could I have done more. Even the vet never gave assurance after getting her on IV fluids. I miss her so much.
I launched PalawanBlogger.com
Thinking my friend who have potential as a travel blogfer and kind of encouraged me to start it will blog soon. Another disappointment, he isn’t blogging still. Just to launch the site and not waste the domain name. I wrote a few content on that site and designed it. So that took about a few days that I could’ve spent on PatBagano.com. But that’s a startup and actually part of the whole idea of PatBagano.com so, no regrets.
Twitter is still my main content distribution channel
Followers increased but not to a shocking number. In fact very low increase. I was hoping to reach 2000 or more for the whole month of August but some things just don’t work. I need to learn how to penetrate other Twitter users by creating content appropriate for them. That is included on my September goal.
I joined Quora not to blog, just answering questions and linking to my articles. It might provide good backlinks and traffic. Other websites, I have to consider, it might be a total waste of time. But I am really enjoying Quora right now.
God of the internet stopped sending trolls
Fortunately there are no trolls sending me random messages recently. My inbox might have been filtered by the angels of the web that’s why my eyes don’t get a chance to lay on the wonderful trolling messages.
I don’t know, either is not good.
No customers still
No customers for a writing gig, no inquiry for almost the whole month. I must have been doing something wrong, but that is fair enough at the moment so I can focus on content creation and research.
But a good trickling of cash would be appreciated. Hope September is kind to my .com and that is it for now.
