Before I formally start another round of sleepless writing frenzy, I would like to make a post about one of the projects I’m working on right now.
When I first took up the job, I thought it would be easy. But like anything in life, we should not judge at face value because nothing is really as easy as it looks. I thought posting comments on 200 blog posts would be quite easy. Apparently, it isn’t. Even though I have tweet deck to generate for me the latest blog posts in the internet (or at least a percentage of them) still the posts generated are not enough. Even though I do not have to read each post word for word (sometimes skip reading will allow you to read through blog entries real quick) still it is hard to generate a really intelligent and not generic comment.
I thought the job would be easy because I was a blog hopper myself. I understood the importance of blog hopping to increase the traffic to your site. But the fact remained that the site I was attaching to the name I’m using for the blog posts was a commercial site, and so blog owners who have the privilege of removing the URL attached to the name makes full use of that advantage. So I have seen a lot of good comments go to waste – that is the name was devoid of the URL and as such losing the whole purpose of the endeavor. But funny thing was, since I also comment using my own name and URL, the blog owners, after checking out my site, would leave the URL untouched. So the tide turns in in favor of my site but not in favor of my goal of 200 blog comments.
This project is due in a week’s time. It is at the bottom of my priorities though even if it pays 30 bucks. I’m a writer first and foremost. And so my writing assignments comes first. In any case, I will not mind too much if I don’t get to finish the project and I’m not paid. I gained a whole lot of new websites to look into because of it. 😀
That’s enough. Time to work. 😀
