This was last week. No to do written for week 7.

Yes, bookmark that, because it will be a pain to type.
It is almost halfway into the 6th week and I am just announcing the idea. All because I was trying to save a couple of dollars on the domain name KenandtheArtofMotorcycleMaintenance.com.
This was supposed to be a filler idea so, I’m not too concerned. Still I would like to get it up and going.
It is also an exercise too in extra long domain name. I wanted to see the effect (if any) a very long domain name has on promoting the site and getting traffic.
About the Idea
The name of couse is a play on the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Ken is my name so it fitted very nicely.
The site is a full blown experimentation of what I call “idea in the blogging“.
I like riding motorcycle (more about that on the site later) and one of my dream is to run a motorcycle repair shop and look at all the different motorbike coming in – Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, BMW, KTM, Aprilla, Cagiva, Ducati, Triumph … talking to the riders. All motorcycle riders have fantastic story to tell.
Very nice … but not going to happen any time soon. At least I can blog about it!
Not much activities last week. 59 Ideas is growing nicely as I get into the blogging flow.
Can you believe it? I registered for a domain for last week’s idea and until I have not gotten the account to the domain. More on this when the account is finally accessible. The price to pay for going cheap.

Last week (week 3) really dampen my momentum. It proves beyond doubt that being a ProNetizen is a fulltime endeavour that tolerates no slacker.
- Get those content written!
- Focus on task at hand, not wander off surfing
- Find a mechanism to keep track of my time spend
- Be more realistic in terms of goals
- Get Whois.la redesigned
- Get content written (at least 2/day)
- More linking, promotion
- Research and write on topics
This week is simply packed to the brim for me.
In my real world work life, we are moving office. We used to work in a home office, but we now moved to a office building. Still have lots of boxes to unpack.
Three more people joined our company! Two of them interns. That’s a 100% increase in head count. So I really had my hands full guiding them what to do.
If that is not enough, I am also looking for a place near the office to stay. I had to confirm the place, pack, move. All these before leaving for Singapore this Friday. Chinese New Year is just round the corner.
This is a big distruption, which mean I had to readjust my “0 to independence” plan accordingly.
- Routines (8hrs)
- blogging content (10hrs, 2.5hrs/content)
- link building (2hrs/day)
- research, reading, surfing (2hrs/day)
- Domain name backgrounder
- Audience Alignment
(open)Setting up and backgrounder on Whois.la
Based on the last 2 weeks, the following were finetuned,
- cut content coverage to 4/week
- move tasks repeated every week to a separate routine section
- more specific time allocation
