It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time…

Regular readers will remember that I recently joined the payperpost site to earn some money from my blogging to help towards the costs of running this blog.

I did the first post introducing the service here, for which I was paid $20 providing it remained for a month on the blog.  I started all keen but each time I checked the site for “opportunities available to me” I found there were none.  After a couple of weeks it became quite disheartening.  I don’t know if the opportunities were not available because my blog didn’t fit their advertisers requirements, or because there are lots of keen people constantly prowling the site snapping up opportunities as they were posted.

Either way, I decided to leave as soon as I had been paid my $20 for the first post, after a 30 day wait.  This has now passed and I have removed the payperpost stuff from the blog and will keep it private from now on as far as posts are concerned.  I will keep the small number of adverts though as these do seem to be working well.  A warm thank you to all readers who have clicked on the adverts.  This seems a much better solution all round.

I will be changing the look of this site again soon (as soon as I can get it updated to wordpress 2.6) to bring a more professional, and a more adaptable, look to the blog which I hope will take it forward for another year or so.  It is another theme by the chap who wrote this current one so you know it will be good!

Anyway, enough private musings for a sunday evening!

Back to the grind tomorrow but, with the new air-conditioning in the office, at least it will be a cool grind!

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
