Today marks the 51st day of 2017 and the 51th straight post for this blog. 50 previous posts of my ramblings. Each day bringing a different adventure. Every day working on one of my new years resolution. Every day trying to improve my life. Lets see what the next 50 days hold in store.
When I originally got my Raspberry Pi, I wanted to build a Magic Mirror with it, but after looking at the many different projects people have done, I am reconsidering what project to do.
The Retro Pi project is very appealing to me, as I am an avid gamer. The Arcade Pi project is also an interesting project to me.
A Weatherstation would interest me as well.
I just need to find my first project and finish it and then I can always buy another Raspberry Pi as they are cheap enough.
The internet is a great place to learn whatever you want to do. Whether it be changing oil in a car, there is a youtube video for that, or starting a blog. The internet has the resources for your to learn what you want to do.
As part of my quest to always be learning new things, I am using StackSkills. Most of my courses I have gotten at a discount using bleepingcomputer.com deals. It is a great place to get courses at good deals.
24 hours in a day. 10ish hours at a job a day. 7 hours a sleep a night. Leaving the rest of the time for hobbies, games and life. But even with my Google Calendar keeping me organized, part of that time is still wasted. The to-do lists and wish lists grow with each wasted moment.
Recently I have installed RescueTime on my computers to help me aid in this situation. Limiting my Reddit time, stop the switching between the many different side projects I have going through my mind, and even the waste of time known as social media.
Time is limited, need to use it smarter. Time to narrow my focus and work on my end goal.
Since this blog was created, I have tried a few different ways to monetize some of the content. While I don’t expect to make a load of money off this blog, I am using different techniques to learn more about the process of monetization for future projects.
Currently, I am using Google Adsense to ran ads on this blog. Granted most of the visitors to this blog will probably be using an adblocker on their browser and won’t see them.
Another way I am using Amazon Affiliate links. I am linking products that I am writing about so it is easier to for visitors to purchase them.
Referral links on posts is another way I am experimenting with. As I learn more, I will adapt the methods and go from there.
