I’m loving life right now!

OMG, you guys! I joined Wealthyaffiliate.com on Wednesday night! Lol don’t worry, I’m not going to spam you guys with affiliate links. I don’t have them yet, and the link I just put up isn’t a referral one. Hey, I’m learning how to use nofollow now, Lol! Anyway, Wealthyaffiliate is a training center for affiliate marketing. I joined because when I create my shopify stores, I want to know how to market them, join affiliate programs in the niche, etc. The training has you go through and create a site, so I created a site called Daily Top Lists. It doesn’t have any posts yet so I’m not going to link to it. I intend to get the domain next month, for now, I’m hosted on a subdomain. Anyway, I’ve had so much fun commenting and chatting and asking questions!!! I’ve pretty much buried myself in affiliate marketing blogs, newsletters, etc. You guys know that I love creating sites, and I absolutely love blogging! I’m going to have so much fun with this. Oh and in about 3-4 months I should be able to make my first store. I’m so excited for what the year has for me!

I won’t be migrating to SunSed.

Mostly because they have a limit of 10000 posts per site. I have almost 2000 here in my archives alone! Not to mention my linkblog, that has over 2000. I need to look at Posthaven, and that will be the last one I look at for a while. Someone on Gab told me they were developing a blog platform. This is good because we need more new platforms in the world! Lol, I told the person that if he gave me everything, I’d pay $120! Everything includes lifestreaming features, the ability to post podcasts, the ability to add custom widgets, support of the linkblog format, and imports from Blogger. I just wish they’d hurry up and get done, so I could test it. I told him I want to be one of the beta testers!

Thoughts from the past couple days.

I watched the inauguration on Friday! I did like Trump’s speech a lot. I managed to watch some of the inaugural parade as well. During this time, I was waiting for Lavabit to relaunch! It went live around 2 something. Just when I took a break to go watch the parade, the resurrection happened! Lol I guess that’s what happens when I walk away. Services get launched. Lol, I only wish!
I’m testing a new blogging platform! It’s called SunSed, and I really like it! I’m thinking I’ll be ready to leave Blogger in a couple months, when they release their V3 and add Blogger migration! I’ll also be able to restart my podcast, which I’ve been wanting to do for several months now.
I created my first Subreddit, it’s called /r/blogplatforms! I’m always interested in finding new blogging platforms and testing them, so I made this Subreddit to discuss that.

Thursday Lister: ideas.

I’ve been trying to keep an ideas journal lately. I had a goal to write 10 ideas per day, but I had a hard time getting to 10. This is a list that I wrote today.

  1. I’ve finally decided on simplrerssreader.com. I really like the interface!
  2. I’ve been dreaming a lot more recently. Not sure why this is, but the past couple nights I’ve had dreams. It’s very rare for me to dream. I usually do it about once every 2-3 months.
  3. This makes me want to start a dream journal, which is very easy to do in Penzu!
  4. As much as I don’t like writing in rich text, I do love Penzu!
  5. I want to migrate my blogs somewhere, but I’m really not sure where yet. I’m testing different services, which seems to be the theme around here lately!

Grocery shopping and pre-flight!

Melissa and I went grocery shopping today. I didn’t want to do it on Friday, because I’ll be watching the inaugural parade. I can’t believe there are only 2 days left! I’m still cleaning out my email in preparation for the big resurrection! The thing is, the pressure is on to get it done now, because well… it happens Friday.
Earlier today, I got involved in this Reddit thread, and had fun scaring pharisees! Tomorrow, I intend to clean out emails from morning to evening, and try to decide between 2 RSS readers!

Blog tweaking, and counting down the days!

I did some blog tweaking over the weekend. I’ve changed the template, and added Disqus and Linkwithin.
I’ve started cleaning out my email, in preparation for the flipping the big change switch on Friday! I can’t believe there’s only 4 days left! I got all my sent items cleaned out today, tomorrow I’ll start with trash and spam. Spam will be the quickest, as there’s only 159 messages in that folder. While I was cleaning out sent items, I ended up keeping 160 support exchanges that I’ll forward over. As a general rule, I keep support exchanges.

The final countdown has arrived!

Until January 20th, that is! yay for the final countdown. It isn’t the inauguration I’m so excited about, although I’m interested to see what Trump says in his speech. No, it’s the impending Lavabit resurrection! Lol, I told Melissa when we were on the way to lunch this afternoon, that I just couldn’t wait anymore! Heh, I can, I just don’t want to wait anymore. Anyway, it’s now time for me to go to bed so I can get up early. Maybe I’ll do a Periscope stream tomorrow! Lol yeah, I’ve been testing Periscope and actually got it to work.

Why I changed my Blogger display name.

About a week and a half ago, I changed my Gab username from webgurl, (the username I use online,) to @hope Why did I do this? Well the username noelle was taken, and that’s my legal given name. I decided to use Hope, because if I were to change my name, if I could actually get away with that, it’s what I’d change it to. I then decided I should try to start using that online. I still use my first name with the username, if there’s a place for it. For now, I’ve changed the display name to be more in line with my current online identity. However, I intend to register a new domain as soon as this one’s ready for renewal, and that will be in May.

Haircut pics!

I was going to post these a couple days ago, but just didn’t get around to it. I got a new haircut on Friday, and I had Melissa take pictures. I’m going to try to upload them here, but if I can’t, I’ll link to them on Imgur, where I uploaded them to post to Gab.

I had a clog.

Oh yeah I did. My toylet was clogged earlier today. I didn’t have a plunger, so I had to call Century21, and they called a plumber. Yeah, a plumber, just to fix a clog! The toylet was acting up all day yesterday, but I thought it was just the pipes being slow. We’re experiencing some snowy weather here, so I thought the pipes may have backed up. It didn’t overrun though, so I didn’t think anything of it.
