Pink heart projects
Sooo much work..
.. often you see people balking at the work involved in this business.
I do have to admit, sometimes I do this too.
It is easy to get a bit tired when…
… you see a hill of 50 or 100 pages that need to be created/updated, domains that need to be registered / transfered or blog posts that need to be written, and I am not even diving into the configuration files that need to be changed, images that need to be edited, files to be uploaded, forum posts to be answered, contacts to be made, banners to be created, links to be exchanged, scripts to be coded, noooooooo I will not even tell you about the templates that need to be done, the deals that need to be struck, the asshats in need of banning, the news that have to be read, nonono, I’ll spare you all of that.
But is this really hard work? I beg to differ.
A lot of this is just mind numbingly boring, or tedious copy and paste.
Yes, you will be tired after a day of computing and I admit it can be strenuous.
However, I still think this beats nightshifts in a hotel, burger flipping, newspaper delivery, digging holes in other people’s garden, walking dogs, making macchiatos and above all working for idiot bosses!
But not to let this digress into an useless rant, I’ll add some advice on getting ahead as well.
Let’s call this the “pink hearts method”, in honor of wickedfire, the internet’s premier affiliate forum.
I found that when I balk, it is often not the actual work, but often projects that are all about money making and nothing else.
To counteract this, I recommend keeping a list of “pink heart projects” that you can come back to during those times.
here are some of those hearts to use for you:

Those are the projects that might not make much money, but you love them nonetheless. It might be a blog, it might be a hobbyist site, it might be the next American novel. Hey, they might even bring some real content and service to the net.
This way, you’ll have a list of things to do the next time Copy and Paste seems just like too much hard work.
