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!
