I think I’m beginning to repeat myself, but every month lately seems to go by in the blink of an eye.
This month is no exception.
On the personal front, I have some upcoming travel, so have been working at getting ahead with tasks….can we ever really get ahead??
It seems this year sees a lot of things coming to a close.
My daughter is in her final days of senior school with exams upcoming. My son has finished his education for his apprenticeship. My husband has finished a project of rebuilding a car….yes I now consider myself an apprentice mechanic
You know what they say, one door closes another door opens.
Online Biz – Review & Projection
In the Biz, there has been some gathering of momentum towards clearing up outstanding projects too, will have more on that in the next update.
This month I put out the call to interested and interesting people to become part of a mastermind group. I had terrific feedback, and have selected members with our first meeting scheduled in October.
Its time to start exploring some traffic strategies as I’m finding that I’ve reached a sticking point. I’ll be checking out and trialing different methods to get me over this hump and hopefully create a tipping point. I’ll report on results in upcoming posts.
I have recently moved from the free version of commentluv to the premium (paid) version. The plugin offers a number of enticements that I think will create more community, and encourage sharing. Plus it will enable me to cut back on some other plugins.
Will report back once the new improved commentluv and I get better acquainted

Facebook Dominates Discussion
I had planned to begin implementing a new plan of attack for facebook this month, and I’m so glad that it fell down the list of priorities (thank you universe).
Unless you’ve been under a rock, which wouldn’t be very pleasant. It’s been really hard to miss the buzz over facebook changes.
If you haven’t had chance to catchup on all the goss, here’s a selection of posts that will give you the lowdown. Time to put on the learning cap again!
Think I might hold back on implementing any changes to facebook, at least until the dust settles and see if any further updates are imminent.
Well that’s a wrap for this month. I’ll leave you with my 5 worth reading from last month. Be sure to check them out and show them some love.
