A.J.’s Newsletter Trouble-2

A few days ago I posted this really embarrassing article about my newsletter and how I wish more people would subscribe – without realizing, that of three possibilities to subscribe, only two worked.

 

Of course, the one that didn’t work was the one here on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest,’ where most people would have the chance to subscribe.

It took me days of cooperation with technicians and hours of work, asking back and forward and finally testing it. And now it works.

I invite new subscribers to test and see! (he he he). No, in earnest: I’m happy to see more subscribers who’d like to see my newsletter. Thank you!

A.J.’s Newsletter Trouble

This morning I posted the following blog post, happily, that finally my newsletter subscription works. It took me a long time to get this done and follow all necessary steps I was given to make it work again. Of course, I had tested subscribing and unsubscribing before publishing the article. It worked perfectly, which made me publish the article.

And as soon as the post was published I was informed that it does not work.

I’m shocked. This is embarrassing, and I’m extremely unhappy how it turned out. I just wrote an armor-clad email to MailChimp to immediately solve that problem.

I’m contrite and hope you’ll forgive me for publishing something that does not work. I’m sorry.

I’ll keep you updated on the matter.

How to Create a Bullet Journal for Blogging: Part Three

Not too long ago I re-blogged Suzie Speaks’ bullet journal for blogging posts one and two. Of course number three can’t go missing now!

Suzie Speaks

Over the last few days I have posted Part One: Materials and Ideas and Part Two: Spread Layout of my How to Create a Bullet Journal for Blogging series in which I gave hints and tips on materials available, content ideas and set up and layout of spreads. The final instalment of this is decoration and design – something that I enjoy immensely. It isn’t for everyone and isn’t actually necessary at all, but one of the many exciting things about creating your own Bullet Journal is that it can be personalised according to your own preferences and available time. These can be as simple or as complicated as you like. For me, if a spread that I’m working on looks nice, I’m more inclined to use it and therefore inspired to make more.

Remember: they don’t have to be super complicated or something that causes stress levels to rise…

How to Create a Bullet Journal for Blogging: Part Two

And of course, where there’s a part one – a part two isn’t too far. Thank you, Suzie Speaks for your great advice on proper planning!

Suzie Speaks

In my previous post I gavehints and tips about starting a Bullet Journal for bloggers, with advice about materials that can be used.

This post is about setting up pages – or SPREADS as they are known in the Bullet Journal community.

Before I even started, I worked out what I needed to help with my blogging activities each month.

A monthly overview (1 page)
A weekly calendar that would incorporate my To Do lists (4-5 pages)
Blog post ideas and earnings (1 page)
A daily checklist with a list of blogging tasks and stat tracker for the month that would incorporate clients social media trackers too (1 page)

How to Create a Bullet Journal for Blogging: Part One

Effective planning made easy – by Suzie Speaks. Thanks for a really great blog post of advice!

Suzie Speaks

For the last two years, I’ve requested one thing for Christmas – a notebook. In that notebook, I keep ongoing trackers of my blog and social media stats, monthly and daily checklists, trackers of my social media client stats and some ideas and small drafts for blog posts.

What I didn’t realise that I was doing was creating my own version of a bullet journal. In fact, up until about two months ago I’d never really heard much about them, that is, until I watched a ‘July Plan With Me’ YouTube tutorial from AmandaRachLee on creating a monthly set of ‘spreads,’ (that’s page layouts to us ordinary folk). Since then it has become a bit of an obsession – I’ve watched more tutorials than I can count, allowed myself a small budget to buy materials, practiced different handwriting styles and layouts and began the process of setting up a bullet…
