I have to publish my About.com content for the month before the contract deadline later this week so I decided to stay home and get the new articles uploaded before this evening. The work needs to be moved from the Microsoft Word document I have saved in the cloud into html with cross links, which shouldn’t take much time. I’m still in the middle of a project to pre-write the next 12 months of content so I can set them to automatically publish. It would also create consistency so that people knew there would be a new article every, say, Monday and Wednesday or something.
That’s my day. Hanging out at home, working on one of the few business connections I still have to my youth by publishing on the site that first hired me when it was, itself, barely a start-up and I was only 18, and enjoying the perfect autumn panini sandwiches we created last year, along with a side of jalapeño chips and iced tea. (Yes, I know it is now winter, but they are so good and rich – the smoked applewood gouda cheese with the Swedish lingonberries is delicious!)
Maybe I should hire a secretary or assistant to upload all of this stuff for me. After all, I just need to write it … which I do, on multiple devices, in spare moments here and there, throughout the day. I mean, this blog alone now has 445 draft posts in various stages of development, most of which are between 500 and 2,000 words. They cover everything from signaling theory to portfolio management strategies.
