A folder of food photos that I took, some of which we never used on the blog because I meant to edit them first and just hadn’t done that yet. While these are just photographs and don’t include recipes, they’re all yours and you can use them in your content however you wish.

What is PLR? The short answer is it’s content that you have private label rights to use, meaning you can claim authorship, edit it, and use it like you would most other articles.

Where can I use this content? On your blog, in your newsletter, in an ebook or short report (free or paid), pretty much anywhere. The only places you can’t use it are where it would break the rules of the platform, such as Amazon Kindle or other places where they are seeking 100% unique content.

Can I edit the content? Absolutely. Edit, add your own voice, add additional information, expand a thought.

How many other people can buy this content? This particular package of articles is limited to 300 copies. The cart will automatically close once those have been sold.

Who wrote these? My family and I originally wrote these recipes for our food blog, which has been retired and is no longer online. All photos included in the package were taken by me personally.

Shark Tank Season 9 Premiere

I love watching Shark Tank with my family. It’s one of the few things that everyone in the house will gather in the living room for. We have fun talking about the different products, seeing the niche opportunities, and hearing the amazing stories the entrepreneurs share about how they got to be standing on the carpet in front of the group and presenting their idea.

Shark Tank had two hours to kick off the season, so they aired two episodes and featured eight entrepreneurs with their ideas. [Read more…]

Learning, Growing, and Sometimes Laughing with Unsubscribe Requests

mail_removeWhen someone unsubscribes from your mailing list some services allow you to display a message asking why they left the list, and you can receive those messages.

It’s an optional thing with AWeber, but I like to get the notices and I’m always interested to hear why people left so I know what I can do to improve in the future. It’s a good way to get feedback and make sure you’re making good connections with your audience.

Honestly, most of the time the notes people write are things like “just cleaning up my inbox, so much email” or “less time for email than I used to have.” We can all relate to that, I’m sure. I know I try to do a clean up once every few months and unsubscribe from things I’m not using or reading, too, so I get it.

Sometimes an unsubscribe can be eye-opening and help you learn something about your list and audience… [Read more…]

Oops! Lost a Domain Name

So I’ve been a little distracted by life lately. June was busy with the end of the school year, graduation and all the things that go along with that, then I had a minor medical procedure, a bunch of medical tests with a few more scheduled for July, and my husband is scheduled to have surgery in a few weeks.

Life. Distracting and full of stressful things. I didn’t notice the renewal emails from Namecheap when I skimmed my inbox. They were there, but I was so focused on client work and trying not to fall behind on those things, I completely missed them when I scrolled through.

Namecheap has a 30 day grace period when a domain name expires –
I missed it by one day.
If I had logged in yesterday to look for something like I did today, I would have caught it and still owned the domain.

remember to renew your domain names so you don't lose yours like I did

On the bright side, it wasn’t an active blog or an income property, so I guess it’s one less thing to manage on my project list. Right? It was actually a domain name that I registered for my husband to blog on and he hadn’t been active on it for awhile, so it’s not a huge loss.

Still, I had the domain name for several years and I really liked it 🙁
(it was the CookingwithZen.com blog)

Why am I even writing about this? Just to remind you to check your domain name renewal dates so this doesn’t happen to you. If you’re like me and have your domains set to manual renewal, pop into your account and double check the expiration dates. Set up a reminder on your calendar (which I actually had, but I set the date wrong), add it to your project management system, email yourself, or do whatever will get your attention at renewal time.
