I'm Overbooked

It's time to update this blog. I've been so busy trying to increase my online income, I haven't had time to blog about anything. This was meant to be a family blog, but I've kept a personal journal (the kind you write in and keep in your nightstand) for years, and I really don't want to stop, or repeat myself here. If this site shuts down, I'll still have my journal.

I might change the tone of this to chronical more of my business, since that's what I'm involved in at the computer most of the day. We'll see how that goes. I actually started another blog about that, but I can only keep up with so many blogs, and this one is established now.

So here is my business update. The past month my main business goal was to reach 50 Squidoo lenses to make the Giant Squid status. I accomplished that around the 15th of September. Deadline was September 30, and Giant Squids will be announced Monday, October 6. As of today I have 70 Squidoo lenses. They're listed at the bottom of this blog.

While working on that goal, I let my eBay listings just lay there in the store inventory and haven't done any active listings. Sales are way down, even for store inventory. I'm waiting while eBay makes some adjustments and sorts out some things they're working on.

I really have all the infrastructure and elements of several good online businesses in place now. I just need more of me or more hours in the day to get it all working. Each month my income increases, though, and I'll just have to keep building.

Goals for the month of October include: Making more Squidoo lenses and linking everything together; adjusting to eBay changes; updating my websites.
