These are notes I took about tough conversations with the team working on the site. I have left them mostly as is, not correcting grammar or spelling, because I think that partially reflects my mood at the time…….Hey, I was mildly productive on my website while out of town…..

Mild Productivity on My Website

I was finally productive on my website at my mom’s…..which is kind of harsh, since it’s only Tuesday…..

But, I posted a new article I wrote, which was based on my most read LinkedIn post. It was three easy things to do to prepare for your job search, before you start your job search.

I also researched Instagram, but mostly because I think Julianne should be using it for her business. I could also, but I don’t know if that is the right spot just yet (given my lack of photos).

Quite a bit of time was also spent commenting on others’ LinkedIn posts, in an effort to help them, and also so they know my name when I ask for help. It’s funny, I’m sure some would see this as manipulative or something. But, I might not even ask for help. In the meantime, I increased the reach of their posts (and hopefully contributed something helpful in the comments).

Looking back, I’d add this on reflection on that day:

It’s nice to have some positive notes, since they’d definitely been trending negative. I do find I can write articles almost anyplace, yet I find that I’m not excited at times. That seems to be the issue lately, lack of excitement decreasing my productivity on my website. I do a pretty good job of using LinkedIn, but my following is not building much lately. I was also recently told that my posts aren’t showing for some people…..so I need to figure that out.

Let me know your thoughts, by posting in the comments, or by emailing us at ideas@laidoffbetteroff.com.
