Inspiration comes in many forms

Suffice it to say that I’m fully inspired and am spending my (recently increased) spare time getting things launched and working for my company, infsoln. The Task Tracker is nearly presentable and we’re starting marketing efforts, so I’d like to work on some more passive revenue streams that might provide ad space for it. After reading a couple of great articles on monetizing websites, I’m hoping we can supplement our gap with revenue leveraging new and old resources.

If you have the need, I recommend these articles as a good jumping-off point (maybe a little dated and some items are a little shady but otherwise inspiring): 33 Proven Ways To Monetize a Website (or a Blog) – WebsiteSetup.org and 8 Powerful Ways to Monetize a Blog That Generates Under 1,000 Visitors Per Day

So speaking of gap, I know it is rare but I do have some consulting availability! If anyone has short- or long-term projects please contact me – you can now find me on LinkedIn. I hope to begin posting some articles there soon. I did also recently join Alignable, but haven’t yet given it the attention it needs.

I’m also working on some more passive streams…  the smokingtimer.com website, and a couple of others, could be spiffed up and start generating some revenue. I plan to post my mis-adventures here, and hopefully my successes elsewhere (I’ll be sure to post those here, too lol)!

I have a to-do list a mile long in my bullet journal and I’m working through it, including creating a public github repo for ‘resume builder’ sample code for prospective clients to look at. Will have to check it to see what is next!

 

Captain’s Blog

Since this is the Shoemaker’s Blog, I think it should be more bloggy!

Today’s adventures included working on the new Bootstrap look and feel for the AdWriter application site, and prepping for tonight’s launch. There were also a couple of minor support requests – one was a consult for a data import that is changing to a new feed provider who will no longer be sending xml. Another was a db lookup.

The launch items were mostly patch replacements, including several major updates to the API for NRT’s Listing Concierge system, adding support for a domain name under AdWriter’s restricted authentication scheme, and a new custom office division for the Property Parade. Also the PAF form was updated, and the change log.

Besides AdWriter, today the team and I worked on the Task Tracker www site, upgrading it to SiteMinder 2.0 and we hashed out the start of a marketing plan in the infsoln wiki, and revisited pricing schemes and payment options for the Task Tracker application. I researched monetizing on the web and pretty much took a small breather to double check my priorities.

As far as FUN, Judi’s kids were over today, and Morgan from No Flash Ink sent over a rough draft for my next piece – so beautiful! Jim’s bday was yesterday, so getting ready for the party on Saturday. Fun filled weekend coming up!

Late Bloomer

With summer in full swing I’m getting a late start on the flowers in our yard this year. Our vacation trip and then hail the last couple of weeks really got us behind. But the planters look adorable and the Yuccas finally bloomed for the first time (this is their third season).

I received the high compliment that the arrangements look California-inspired… Been tough getting back to the grind so maybe the change of scenery will help to ease me into it.

Perspective

I remember reading a challenge in my 5-minute journal, “get rid of something that doesn’t bring you joy”.

And have had guidance from various places to “water your love garden”, and “water your lawn” (to make it greener).

I’m ready to jump right in – crazy leg first!

It’s time to finally cultivate all the hard work, collect the bits and pieces that are laying around and create some forward momentum.

The winds of change are a blowin’, girl… just gotta hang on tight!

 

Zendcon!

It’s been an amazing past few months with lots going on! Maybe I will catch you up on it someday, winky-face…

But picking up where we left off… Zendcon!

Had such a great time last year that I signed up blind early bird! My particular focus last year was on asynchronous APIs and composer. I also attended a fascinating talk on open source AI projects.

Honestly, I was somewhat disappointed with the async solutions. I realize that conferences are for showing off the latest and greatest, but unfortunately that meant the currently available option is out of my reach for now. Wound up sticking with the solution that I have in place – will post the code if I get a chance.

But, if you don’t work on a xenophobic legacy codebase and have the luxury, then honestly I would recommend Postman or some other subscription service for reporting and monitoring API requests and request handling.

The talks on Composer, on the other hand, were so incredibly useful. It is akin to the moment that I learned about version control early in my career. It is easy to install, easy to configure, and easy to use. The single greatest benefit to me has been the ability to create private packages in conjunction with private github repositories. Although, full disclaimer, I don’t have autoloader working. I haven’t done much to look into that mind you, but it is a minor inconvenience at worst.

The upside is incredibly accessible and maintainabe codebases. It’s a no-brainer for anyone with multiple projects that have any overlapping custom components. It has been much easier to start new projects without additional maintenance overhead. For a small shop like mine it makes things possible that we could never have managed before. Three thumbs up!

So needless to say I have high expectations for the conference this year and can’t wait for Vegas in October!

 

New Year Resolution

Every year my New Year’s resolution is to try a little harder – and I am pleased to announce that I am headed in the right direction! Here is my completely un-humble brag:

Last night I performed a weekly launch and COMPLETED IT! I didn’t wake up to a pile of documentation to do, or a bunch of orphaned branches that would hang around for a few weeks. I don’t have any admin or accounting to finish. Email notifications were all sent. No lingering related support items. No cards to archive or channels to close.

I did it. Completely. I was up until midnight, but I did it.

Way to go, me!
