It has been another busy week here. I have almost finished the project for the agency in Germany that I mentioned in last week’s post. I also took on some proofreading for a website, which only took a couple of hours and was a nice little earner.
Yesterday was time to pay the web hosting bill for this website. It cost £35 with Kloudhost for annual hosting which I know is very cheap compared to a lot of other companies, but stills seems a lot of money when I take into account the fact that this site has not earned a single penny yet. At the moment the plan is to try and keep this website going for another year and will see if it is working out for me then. My domain authority seems to be improving so there is hope yet! I also found out last night that the £35 a year charge includes an add-on domain, so the hosting for my new translation related website is already covered.
After having used social media for a few months now, I have noticed that quite a lot of people/accounts have followed me then unfollowed when I have followed them back. This has started to irk me a little bit, so I have downloaded an app to be able to track them. To my dismay, I discovered that a total of 45 people followed/unfollowed me on Instagram – Naively, I had been liking and commenting on their posts – not any more though as I have now unfollowed them back. It seems that people do this so that they have more accounts following them than they follow so that they look more popular?? Can anyone enlighten me on this?
Totally unrelated photo in this weeks post, it’s just that I am loving the way the summer is persisting this year! That’s all for this week – thanks for reading. More next Monday!
