This month has been a great one, here are the highlights.

Article Successes

This month I’ve been continuing my routine of publishing one article a week and I had the good fortune that a few of this months articles became very sucessful. I have two blogs, this one (blog.emmetogrady.com) and blog.nimbleci.com. In the last two weeks the NimbleCI blog has received over 4000 visits!

The secret was getting the word out about my post. When I published the article I posted on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook and waited, then the Docker team tweeted the post and featured it in the weekly newsletter. I got a lot of visits from that. From this I learnt that the secret is to tell people after you publish articles. Now I have a checklist of things that I do after I publish an article.

Life changes

My life is going to change a lot in the next six months because my wife and I are planning on moving to Ireland to live and start our family. This change has given me even more reason to reach my goal of having €2k a month of “passive” income, right now I’m around €50-100 a month. This income comes from my online course so right now I’m working hard on releasing another course.

Miracle Morning

I’ve recently discovered a technique called “Miracle Morning”, it’s a short morning routine that I’ve started doing and I like it a lot. It involves six steps: Silence, Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading and Scribing. An easy way to remember all of these is SAVERS. I usually spent around 5 minutes on each step so it takes me around 30 or 40 minutes in total but they say that it can be done with 1 minute for each step, so six minutes total.

Passive Income

Income is picking up slowly from the last few months, I received quite a few very good ratings in my course, I’m guessing that’s driving sales on Udemy.

See you next month!
