Work and more work on recap Monday.
It has been a week since I last posted a blog, and as most of my subscribers know. Tuesdays are reserved to illustrate my day as a web designer,or my lifestyle. It was full of work on projects.
It began early
6:30am – Woke up and pour my 1st cup of coffee. Daily prayer and meditations. Took some medicine for my ache back, and scribe my weekly and daily goals. Wanted to get ahead of a postponed launch, so I worked on the site for several hours over the weekend. Check of my emails…lot of urgent ones. Will work on them after morning duties.
7:15am – wake up the kids. Assist them with getting ready for school. We discuss the Atlanta Braves game on Saturday. They defeated the Miami Marlins 5 – 3. Awesome game. We stayed for the fireworks after the game. Cereal for one child, toast and eggs for another, and fruit/milk and a bagel for the other.
8:00am – drop my kid’s off to school. Stop by my business mail box to pick up a few bills and non-important mail. Went to Starbucks for a cup of coffee.
Then an unexpected schedule meeting
8:45am – back in my office. Looks like my urgent emails are around 50. Knocking one after another one out. See where a client wants to discuss upcoming launch. I have a 10:00am slot open, but have another meeting (call) schedule for 10:30.
9:30am – Second cup of coffee. Receive an email from one of my clients. It is a faith based client, and one of the sermon’s had a few errors in the content. Not the one who handles the graphics, I need to re-upload the new sermon. Emailing the graphic’s department to let me know, when the new sermon was ready to be uploaded. The email came from the Senior Pastor. Only spoke to him once, and it was very short introduction.
10:00 am – Meeting with client. Client acknowledge the hard work, which was done over the weekend. The site is not ready for launch, looks like one of the executive wants a more global approach. This should have been handled during the planning stages. Will overlook that issue, and make a mental note for future projects. All decision makers need to give input during planing stage. Client will provide a list of new changes, hopefully we will be able to launch in about a week.
10:40am – Meeting (call) to my inspirational and motivational speaker client. Some search engine optimization (SEO) is needed on their site. Check the speed of site, site map, and latest blogs. Will work with ghost writer to populate more content in line with the keywords and subject matter.
11:00am – Work on Faith based site. Upload latest sermon. Place a few upcoming events on calendar. Work on prayer request page, the emails are not populating correctly. Minister provided an incorrect email. Life is good.
11:30am – Upload blog post for inspirational and motivational speaker client. Check with keywords and uploaded the blog post. Worked on another client, faith based organization. Uploaded latest bulletin. Reviewed Facebook account to make sure all the latest events were present.
Lunch time equal fruit and rest
12:00pm – Lunch. Second round of medicine. Quick run to bank and stop by Publix. Fruit buy one, get one for free. Been my ritual all week. Took short nap, medicine is making me sleepy.
1;30pm – Worked on client reports. They are going out tomorrow. Should go out on the 5th…a few days late. Check on outstanding invoices. Have a few…and sent out reminders. Email and/or call is needed by 15th or site will be taken down, if payment can not be made.
2:00pm – Conference call with WordCamp Atlanta Organizers for 2018. Heading up volunteers, nothing for me to present as my committee does not rear up till about a few months before the start date. Reviewed the spread sheets and will begin to ask committees about how many folks are needed.
3;00pm – Head out to pick up kids. Quick stop for some Wendy’s frosty. The small is 50 cents.
The day is almost over
3:45pm – Created Facebook ad for Physical Therapy Client. Their having some training sessions during the Fall of 2018, and we want to generate a buzz for the training sessions. The client loved the ad, but wanted to change the content and image. Not a big deal, will have the ad ready to go by late this week or early next.
4:30pm – Clear out my email list. Check the status of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for a client, and cpanel login. Set up an email for one of my clients (Yes, I do provide emails for this client…do not know why. Hate it…) Work on Podcast. Will re-launch on Monday. Just need to do my sponsorship.
5:30pm – Log off. Took medicine before dinner. Wore out…second nap of the day.
