Last Call To Double Your Money

Updated June 2016: Sadly this promotion is now over, but MyBlogU is a great site to visit – and of course, I'd love you to read the rest of my post, or any of the related posts on the bottom.

Start A New Site And Double Your Money

Start A BlogNo, I haven't started promoting “Get Rich Quick” schemes. (If only there were such a thing… there isn't!)

This is just a reminder that 6th October 2015 is the last date to enter the MyBlogU Start a New Site contest where the winner (based on profit, traffic and subscribers) will get personal coaching to double their challenge results.

I wrote about this a little while ago and some readers started on it.

As we approach the deadline, remind yourself of this great opportunity to start that new site you've been meaning to start. Click here to learn more.

While others have been working hard, I have been on holiday 🙂

My Holiday20150909_085159

My journey started (after London) in Chicago, through Springfield IL, St Louis, Memphis and New Orleans then back home to London.

It was a wonderful holiday, packed with exciting venues – some that I knew nothing about before visiting, yet ended up totally fascinated: Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and I fulfilled a life-long ambition to visit Sun Studio and Graceland.

In Chicago I marveled at some breath-taking views from the 94th floor of the John Hancock Tower.

What a wonderful holiday.

It would have been nice to catch up with some of my great USA blogging friends – but my tour was action-packed with barely a break between meals, and that's quite a big country you've got there!

After The Holiday


I'd no sooner returned home than my two grand-daughters (aged 1 and 3) came to stay and – gorgeous as they are – they're real handfuls of fun and love. I don't see a lot of them so I really notice the change, and the new words and skills they've learned.

Here they are shopping with their Uncle Matt (my other son).

All this is just to explain why I haven't been terribly active on my blog of late – but that's the best perk of being self-employed. I work when I want to work, and I holiday / do family things when I want to.

I’m going to join the challenge because I’ve been procrastinating over a new site that I really need to develop. Are you taking part Joy?

I just moved over to Siteground too and am pleased with the results.

Your wonderful holiday kicked off my own urge to travel again. It’s 5 years since my last overseas trip.

    Hi Sue,

    So pleased you’re joining the challenge and I’ll be cheering you on. Please keep us up updated with your progress and we can leave some comments and promote for you!

    I’m not joining the challenge, because I want to completely focus on Premier Cashback which I can promote absolutely fine from this blog here. I fear a new blog would distract me from promoting the club!

    Glad you’re happy with SiteGround too, and I look forward to reading that you’ve taken that long overdue holiday.

    Thanks for dropping by, Joy

Hi Joy,
Wow … you have been busy. Your holiday sounded great and full of enthusiasm! You wrote 3 e-books too – where did all that energy come from! Wonderful and you made some business decisions as well. This is inspirational to people who read this – like myself. Traveling, making decisions, being productive all help to keep the momentum going. Awesome .. look forward to reading more …

    Hi Lesly

    My holiday was wonderful – finding it hard to get back to work after it though. Still, our “chat” today has helped me! Sometimes it helps to note down what you’ve achieved so you feel as if you’re moving forward.

    I’m sure you’ll be reading more as I get back even more into the swing of things.

Hi Joy,
it’s nice to hear how you spent your vacation and all the work you have accomplished!

As soon as I read about #MBUStorm content, I jumped in!
I think it’s a great opportunity to develop an online project with the help of experienced people and the MyBlogU community.

Good to have you back.
Have a fantastic week! 🙂

    Joy - October 5, 2015

    Hi Erik

    The #MBUStorm project is brilliant isn’t it? If only there’d been something like that available when I started out – would have saved so much trial and error (mostly error!)

    I had a great holiday, and although it’s taking me a little while to get back into “work” mode – I’ll be there.

    Great to catch up, and thanks for popping over.

Hi Joy,

Good to see another update for the MyBlogU challenge – I see that the deadline has already expired, hopefully everyone has got their entries accepted by now.

Sometimes, it seems like the days are going out at a very quick pace! It is already the last quarter of 2015 and seems only yesterday when we were making those goals at the start of the year!

Always good to keep family first, among several online and business goals this year – I made sure to spend quality time with my family this year and that is going to be a top goal for next year too. It is great to know that you published 3 ebooks, got your income higher – had a vacation and spent time with your family! I guess that is a lot considering you still have the last quarter of 2015 left.

Uttoran Sen,

    Joy - October 7, 2015

    Hi again,

    Yes – this is such a good challenge, and a good overall site, I wanted to give it a quick shout out along with my “last quarter” post. (I got it out a day or so before the deadline!)

    I really don’t know where the days go to, it’ll soon be 2016 the way the days are speeding past.

    Family should always be one of our top goals, because in most cases we’re doing all this online stuff to improve conditions for our family. How silly if we then neglect them on the way. It’s good to get them on board and involved with your business if possible.

    Looking forward to what I can accomplish in the last quarter of the year, and I’m sure you;ll do great things.


Enstine Muki - October 17, 2015

Hey Joy,
There is no doubt you had a wonderful time traveling. Maybe you should think of coming to Cameroon the next time to take a break 😉

I heard of the MyblogU contest but have been very busy with the new business I’m setting up offline with partners from China. It’s going wonderfully.

I hope and pray you make it bigger this last quarter. Many businesses will blossom so be part of it.

Happy weekend 😉

    Joy - October 18, 2015

    Hi Enstine,

    Oh dear, I enjoyed the USA so much that I’ve already booked my next trip there (new York), and not to Cameroon. Perhaps one day… or perhaps you will come to London?

    Likewise I have no plans to set up a new blog, but Ann Smarty’s contest should be a wonderful start for new bloggers.

    I’m wishing you well with your China venture – and wishing all our blogging friends a busy and profitable run up to Christmas.

    Had a lovely weekend away with friends – back to work now. Have a great week,


Mark - October 18, 2015

Wow Joy!

It sounds like that was one totally awesome trip!

And you certainly packed a lifetime of memories into it!

And once you got back to London, it sounds as of though you’ve
barely had time to catch your breath! LOL!

Big congrats on completing your three eboooks! I’m sure they’re
nothing short of awesome as well!

Glad to see you’re busy doing both personal & professional things
you love!

    Joy - October 18, 2015

    Hi Mark,

    It was a “trip of a life-time” and one I’d been promising myself for a long time.

    Must confess I’ve been like a dog trying to catch its tail since my return because it’s a busy time of year for me, mixed up with enjoyable family visits and all in all I need a holiday to recover from my holidays.

    Never time to get bored, but that’s part of the pleasure of being your own boss 🙂

    Good to see you on my blog again.

    Have a great week, Joy
