There’s No Post This Week – Sort Of

There’s No Post This Week – Sort Of

 

Good morning! I hope you have had a great week!

I have had a busy one.

My Week

Early on Monday, I attended my first training on Facebook Lead Ads. My husband used the computer for the rest of Monday and Tuesday to look for a job. He got a job on Tuesday. Thank goodness he was only out of work for one week!

Wednesday, I went to the Beginner’s Advantage meeting. I had a meeting with my trainer, Sophie, and my mom had heart surgery (it went well).

Thursday, I went to Internet Profit’s four-hour virtual event on email marketing.

Friday, I practiced reading my YouTube video script into the camera. Then, I had an errand to run.

The week has been very eventful. The hours I usually spent on my business were occupied, sometimes with business-related tasks, sometimes not, and I did not finish my everyday tasks.

Conclusion

These types of weeks are bound to happen.

Rather than skip a post, I wanted to share honestly – They happen to me, too!

Was it an eventful, productive week? Yes. Did my post get written? Not exactly.

And sometimes, that has to be okay.

What do you think?
Do you ever have to give yourself some leeway looking back on your week?

Would you bloggers have skipped a post or told your audience what happened?

Perhaps it would appear more professional if the week was skipped.

But I want you to know. I’m probably just like you. Sometimes, life gets busy and worrisome. I only got a little done in the early part of the week. I was so worried about Derek’s job and my mom…

It all worked out.

Let me know what you think in the comments.

Here’s to hoping for a smoother, more regular week!

Ciao for now,

Nakina

  1. This is really honest, and you did write one! We all have weeks like that, it’s called life… it just shows that affiliate marketing will bring freedom and you’ll be able to earn if life gets busy again!

    1. That’s true, Sarah!
      I hadn’t yet considered the future. In time, life can get as busy as it does, and the business will keep earning. All this hard work is going to pay off! That is something that steels me on!
      It is certainly something to look forward to!

  2. Hi Nakina – I applaud you for your spirit and putting out a post in the midst of the week you experienced. If you did not post one, it would have been totally fine. But since you did, I believe it was completely appropriate, honest and has value. It is a great reminder that things happen and that you made the best of situations out of your control. Sometimes life gets in the way, or better said, sometimes we get in the way of life. I hope your mom gets well and she recovers quickly. And congratulations to your husband, What a relief for him and you. Take care and have a great week!

    1. Thank you, Ernie!
      I’m glad to hear you think the post has value. Life does get busy, and it is okay to say that it is OK. That has value, especially when we’re focused on getting the work done. I appreciate your well wishes for my mom. She is doing so much better! She came over yesterday for a family gathering and you wouldn’t know she had been sick! And my husband is looking forward to his new job. It is such a relief that that’s taken care of. It is so hard to be out of work! We’ve done that a few times. Yikes!
      I thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement.
      Have a wonderful week, Ernie!

  3. Doing the blog weekly or more is a form of therapy, as well as doing the You Tube Videos. Now that I am comfortable doing both things, I will expand my focus to include more learning and fine tune what I know to expand to what I don’t know. I learn something every day.

    Having said that, several life events occurred in my life, also. Using these events for content creation is also therapeutic.

    1. Hi, Kate!
      Writing a blog could be considered a form of therapy. It is so much like journaling. It is undoubtedly a way to gather my thoughts from the week and summarize my work. It often helps me solidify in my mind how I went about doing something. And, it is a place to share when life throws curveballs.
      I enjoy your YouTube videos, Kate!
      Have a great week 🙂

  4. Hi Nakina,
    You did have an eventful week that must have been stressful too. I hope your mother recovers well from her surgery.
    Your blog was interesting and well written despite your week not going as planned.

    1. Hi, Regina!
      Thank you for the feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. It was a stressful week. I was at a loss for a few days there.
      My mom is recovering so well! I appreciate your well wishes!

  5. Hi Nakina,
    Despite the events both good and bad that happened during your week, you still managed an interesting blog post.
    I hope your mother recovers well from her surgery.
    You managed to get a few things done despite the stressful events.
    Well done.

  6. Well I chose to take the last three weeks off, but I like what you’ve done here. I think it’s an insightful and useful, and encouraging post.

  7. Nakina, sometimes life just happens like that. But the good thing about the business you are building… if you happen to take a week “off” from your blog posts, it’s okay. The good news is that this business moves as you move.. and some time away isn’t detrimental. Plus… it happens to all of us. And most of the time, it’s very much needed!

    1. Hi, Lauren!
      The business moves as I move, and time away isn’t always detrimental. That is true. It is my business, after all! And it’s true that time away can be helpful. It’s good to come back from a break with a refreshed mind, no matter the cause of the break.
      I’ll have to be easier on myself! I’m wrong about putting too much pressure on myself. I really didn’t want to skip a post for my audience’s sake, but missing out on that or some of my other tasks is okay from time to time. Thank you for your understanding and perspective. I appreciate it!

  8. Nakina, you got a ton done this week. Going to class and learning is still part of that hour a day you need to consistently put in to get to your dream goals! Celebrate the small wins; they will keep you going and motivated. This is a slow journey that takes time. As Dean says, move at your own pace, just keep moving, and the fact that you updated us on your weekly progress totally counts as a blog post. Be proud, and celebrate yourself for all you accomplished this week. You did more than many people, attending Sophie’s class on Monday and Dean’s 4-hour liveevent, which was filled with gold nuggets on email follow-up; getting you ready to start your Facebook Lead Ads journey is something to be celebrated, truly!!!!

    1. Of course, you are right, Alison!
      We both did an awful lot this week—I know you had a hard week as well! Attending Sophie’s and Dean’s training and publishing our blog posts was quite an accomplishment. We are learning and growing by leaps and bounds! Let’s celebrate our wins!

  9. Nakina,
    Good for you for posting a blog! Sounds like you had a lot on your plate but you still stuck to your guns and posted a blog. That shows dedication and it is to be admired.

  10. Nakina, it’s awesome that you still came here to share your week. Honestly, I would rather hear about what you did do, even if it were nothing, than have you skip it altogether. Everyone has things happening in their lives, and for you to be transparent and truthful (which you still did quite a bit, as training is part of all of this) is what sets you apart from other marketers online. Well done…. and I’m so happy your husband found a job so quickly, AND your mom is on the mend. All in a week’s worth of good stuff!!!

    1. Hi, Vanessa!
      I did have an excellent week, didn’t I? My mom is well, and Derek has a job. Both took a turn for the best quickly, and I am so grateful. I’m happy to hear you’d rather see a post than not.
      That helps to know what to do for the future.
      Thank you for your encouragement!
      Nakina

  11. Hey Nakina, thanks for sharing your week with us! It sounds like you’ve been through a lot, from attending training sessions to supporting your husband and your mom through tough times. Your honesty is truly refreshing, and it’s reassuring to know that we’re not alone in facing life’s challenges. Here’s to hoping for a smoother week ahead for you! Take care Atif

    1. Thanks, Atif! It is a much smoother week. Last week was very rough. I appreciate your comment. I’m glad to hear honesty is the best policy even when blogging. I suspected as much, I’m glad to hear I was right! Here’s to a great coming week!
      Nakina

  12. Hi Nakina,
    I admire the fact that you still wrote a post even though you didn’t have much to say. I almost didn’t write my post this week either. I did though, because as you stated, you wanted to be honest with your viewers, and it would be beneficial for them to see this post of yours. I felt the same way, so I wrote mine this week too stating the same thing. They need to know that there will be times that they will run into the same issues from time to time and it’s ok. I’m glad to hear that your mom’s surgery went well. Thank you for sharing this week.

    1. Hi, Meredith!
      I’m glad to hear I’m not alone! Life does happen, and sometimes, work gets put off a bit. I think our blog is a place to let people know when that happens. Perhaps it makes us a bit more relatable. It is certainly all right not to appear perfect!

  13. Nakina,

    Thanks for taking the time to post a blog on your week. It shows that we are all human and that we all have to deal with obstacles that get in the way of our business.

    The important thing is that we get back up and keep moving forward.

    Also congrats on your husband getting new job so quickly. I know that is a blessing.

    Don’t forget you got this!
