Saturday roundup

This has been a bit of a nightmare week for me. As you may know my PC packed up and decided to go to PC heaven. Only thing is I managed to resurrect its soul and get the information from the hard drive before it finally passed through the gates of heaven, or hell (depending which religion it spoke to on its way there).

That said I have a new computer by way of a shiny new laptop and shiny new software like: Windows Vista. I don’t have my Dreamweaver set up, which I am lost without, as I cannot find the disks so the formatting of the posts is not quite up to standard yet.

Strangely enough my RSS Subscribers and earnings from Google Adsense have not suffered as a result. In fact I had my biggest earning day with Google adsense at $7.90; don’t quite know what to make of that.

On with business:

Challenge yourself in 90 days

I was going to mention last week that Aaron Potts of Today is that day fame has recently posted an article challenging you to make a commitment for 90 days to a few of your goals. He has had some interesting comments already with some lofty goals being thrown in there. Here are a few people I thought had interesting goals:


Jennifer McLean of Big Book of You – has a goal to lose 25 pounds in 90 days, good luck Jennifer.

Gayla McCord of Mom Gadget ““ Has a goal to earn $10,000 a month online, don’t laugh as she is already halfway there. Gayla you’ll need to pass on some tips.

Jonathan C Philips of Smart Wealthy Rich ““ Has a blogging goal to reach 750 subscribers, to earn $3000 per month from his blogging activities and has a personal goal of releasing an album with his band. Would love to hear the album Jonathan.

Why not challenge yourself and let everyone know your intentions and post a comment over at Today is That Day.
