My morning routine these past few weeks has been:
- Stumble to kitchen, make coffee
- Return to kitchen to find I forgot to turn on coffee pot after adding grounds/water
- Open up my email, read, add customer requests to my “To Do” List
- Pour first cup of coffee – and click over to whatever posts regarding WordPress, Plug-ins, Security, etc., arrived in my inbox news feeds –
- Read and learn (sort of – remember I’m still on my first cup of coffee!) about neat tips & tricks to make me a better website designer – bookmark the ones I think are wonderful, so I can revisit when I’m actually awake and ready “To Do”
- Drink 1/2 a pot of coffee, then get down to work….
(sorry, Nick, I never have figured out how to get the little dots over the a – sure it’s on the keyboard somewhere….)
Did you visit and read? You really ought to, but if you don’t have time, here’s why I’m happy – about 2/3rds the way down the article – or 4 1/2 scroller rolls, you will find the heading Create Longer Content.
Which states that position in Google searches is enhanced by long word count – optimally, 2500 words. Which I used to be Queen of, but tried to tone down some after reading numerous “Become Blogger Extraordinaire” articles that often contained “in today’s high distraction world – try to keep your posts short” types of advice.
So, this a.m., as I finish my 2nd cup of coffee and prepare to dive back into the work needed to launch my new business –
(oh, yes, remember I told you about the calvary arriving in form of a graphic artist? Yup – that’s my new business partner and we’re expanding my biz to bring even more cost-effective solutions to rural businesses/non-profits/organizations – and yes, I’ll announce here when we’re up and running! 🙂 )
– I just had to log-in and tell those of you who cannot stem the flow of words, back stories, musings and side tangents on how the story you’re telling is connected to everything else in the world…well, today, we are vindicated!
I will need to retrain myself – – I’ve gotten very good at saying things in 400 words or less…. 386, to be exact – 🙂
