Project Discover Week #5

Project Discover Week 5

Since we arrived in Portland on February 1st, every week seems a little different. It’s hard to get into a routine, which would usually be just fine, but Mr. Misadventures is studying for a certification so it kind of screws up his study schedule. I’m also trying to keep a routine with the blogging, focusing on certain things every day and trying not to get distracted by the thousand directions I could go!

I love the response I’ve gotten on the blog this week. Whether it was my monthly blog goal review or the post about where our budget went on our RV trip, people seem to be really interested in hearing these details. In the end, blogging is about making a human connection, so it is great when people connect with me on personal projects!

I’ve been trying to get the word out to female travelers about the new Wanderful membership program. I’m giving away 10 FREE memberships, so if you are a female traveler looking to connect with others around the world, head over to that post to enter, the giveaway ends on Tuesday.

Lastly, I heard back from a long time reader about how much she loved the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course from Michelle Schroeder-Gardner. It’s really great when you recommend something and others find value in your suggestion. Affiliate marketing is hot right now, yes, there are classes everywhere, but it doesn’t have to be a huge thing you have to figure out. If you just do a few simple things while you are writing your blog posts, you can quickly see the benefit. And Michelle’s course provides all the information you need. I don’t see a path to making $160,000 like Michelle did last month, but I’d be happy for a few extra dollars coming in!

That’s it on the blogging front.

After walking a lot last week in Seattle, we didn’t get another opportunity to exercise It was pouring down rain most of the time. Walking in the rain is one thing, walking in the pouring down rain is another! But hey, the sun is out today and we are going to take advantage and go out walking this afternoon.

We did do some walking yesterday of the indoor variety. We went to an RV show at the Portland Expo Center. It was a way to get out of our own RV and to check out what’s on the market. I always like to see how they configure the interiors and what the price ranges are. There is such a wide spectrum, it’s fun to check out. Plus we walked the whole Expo floor.

That counts for a little bit of Portland discovery, but not a lot. As the weather continues to improve we will be exploring a lot more.

Project Discover is spawned from my 2017 word of the year, discover. Besides looking for a job I am focused on three things:

  1. Discover(ing) Portland
  2. Discover(ing) Exercise
  3. (re)Discover My Blogging Mojo

You can follow along every week in my Project Discover Weekly Updates.

That’s been my week, what have you been up to?

As you know we've been considering that part of the country for our post-military move, but man. I recently heard they've gotten 3 days of sun since October. THREE. Not sure I can handle that. Still looking for my dream locale...

@Katie, it isn't raining today! We've been here since Feb 1 and have had at least three non-rainy days, I'm sure of it!

I've been interested in looking into affiliate marketing…I think my best bet is to do something associated with Amazon. I would like to visit Seattle and Portland one of these days. I have heard a lot of good things about Seattle from a friend. I recently got back from Chicago and got a chance to go to a few museums that have been on my list. My sweetie survived nearly three hours at the Field Museum…I'm so proud of him.

@Yona, Amazon is a great place to start, they have so much stuff, you can find something that fits naturally! What is it with guys and museums, I love them too but have to drag my hubby into doing it!
