What I did today

Today was a busy day at the day job so I did very little on the side. That’s not great, for a lot of reasons.

One thing I did do was invest in my websites. At the end of the day, what makes a website grow is content. I don’t have the time necessary to write 200,000 words of content for every site in order to make them grow a fast as I would like.

As a result, I’ve moved a bit towards paying people to write content for me. I invested ~$120 today in people writing content for me. Overall, I’ve found it to absolutely be worth it. The content is relatively inexpensive, and generally good quality.

For example, I could pay someone to write a blog post for me for $35. That post would have taken me ~2-3 hours to write. In essence, that would have valued my time at $17.50/hour if it took two hours.

I’d love to value my time at more than that per hour though. So, I have no problems paying someone to write content for me at that rate because it frees me up to do higher-margin work.

What I’m thinking about today

I’m thinking about how to scale these websites. I have two that I’m working on now, so I’ve been doing research on how best to scale them. I’m thinking that if I invest ~$2K into them, I should see somewhat of a return. As a result, I’m trying to invest that into my sites and I’ll see what happens as a result.

How I’m Feeling Today

I’m feeling good. I’ll keep chugging along here. It really does feel freeing to have help from other people on the content, even if I do have to pay for that help!
