Hey guys. I haven’t updated the blog the past few days because I wanted to measure how well it was doing without paid traffic or social media traffic. Essentially, organic searches.
Unfortunately, my website is not doing well for organic searches, and I’m not sure how to make it any better.
For the time being, I will continue to update this blog while I study SEO. But I do have a couple of other bits of news to update everyone with!
First, I’ve decided to take a vacation to Thailand for about five days at the end of March. I’m not sure exactly what I’ll be doing just yet. I do know that I want to visit a couple friends of mine in Thailand; I know Chad is over in Bangkok right now. Beyond that, I’m thinking I might go for a long bike ride or two. I still haven’t decided if I want to do that or not.
One thing I will definitely do is stay at one of the islands east of Phuket.
This picture is Koh Khai Nok. I’m actually not sure which island I want to stay at, but I know I’d like to stay for at least a couple of days. I want to do some snorkeling, take pictures, and so on.
Still working on that goal…
Quite honestly I’ll probably do some work while I’m there. I am still not that much closer to my goal of $1000 USD per month, but I do have a couple ideas.
One is to stick with what I know, and one of those things is teaching English. I don’t want to make English teaching a career… honestly, I can’t see the longevity of that unless I own my own school. However, I have decided I’m going to make a bunch of lesson plans, including audio files, and sell them online for a good price. It’s just going to take a lot of work to make a viable product.
So, keep an eye out for that in the next couple of months.
This is another option I’m looking at. I do like to write, and I do have some experience with sales. I think learning more about this can make my website design better as well, and perhaps I can pick up some side jobs copywriting for companies or small businesses.
There are a lot of ideas out there to make a business, I just gotta find something that works! For now, I will focus only on the English lesson plans.
