Long time coming 🙂
I have been postponing my work with ADZ World for so long until finally couple of days ago I started to work on it again.
So much is happening lately and more and more new members are joining ADZbuzz with many questions. New members are struggling to figure out how to get started and how the system works so I’m already late with my work. I wanted to get the main things up and running before the masses start to flow in. Yes, the masses are not pouring in yet but not a single day is passing by without members asking how this, how that. If we want the new members to stay and enjoy the platform we need to make their experience struggle free. And this was the main purpose of ADZ World. Give people everything they need to have the best experience with ADZbuzz.
It is so hard to get started with working on my site because I know everything that I want to create takes quite a big effort and is really time-consuming. I have so many other things going on in my life at the moment and it is very hard to find that extra 2…3 hours which I can dedicate to ADZ World.
My standards are too high sometimes 🙂 and I want everything to look perfect that’s why I have postponed the work for so long because I know how much time it can take to create even something very simple. Then I said to myself, I don’t have to get the thing which I want to achieve done the same day, I can split it into parts. Better I dedicate even half an hour whenever I can instead of just postponing the whole process. And I think you know, once you get started it is much easier to stay in that zone 🙂
So the promise was made. I try to spend at least half an hour every time I can. This way I can get at least something done 🙂
So this week I got few things done again.
New Twitter Account
I had a twitter account already for my blog 2freedom.eu but I wanted to create a new account which is only about ADZbuzz & ADZcoin so people who are interested in the project do not have to see all other posts from my blog.
Setting the account up was easy but getting auto-sharing to work was a pain the ass 🙂 I installed WP to Twitter plugin and when I started to set it up, I got an error that OAuth (connecting my Twitter account to WordPress) wasn’t successful.
I was searching for a solution from Google and from YouTube. Tried many different things but couldn’t get it to work. Spent about 1,5 hours for solving the problem until finally noticed that there was first letter missing in API Key 🙂 Damn why didn’t I check it before? How could I miss that part? Happens even to the best of us 😉
Once I fixed that letter thingy, everything was up and running in no time.
The next struggle was to get my YouTube introduction video embedded to Twitter. After another half an hour of finding the way I finally dropped that idea (Seems that this is only an advertising feature on Twitter and I don’t have that option). I went with an easier option, I just uploaded the video straight to Twitter.
And here the luck was on my side. The limit for uploaded video is 45 seconds but my video was little over a minute long. But … but as I have YouTube boxes (suggested videos at the end of the video) at the end of my video the actual video ended exactly at 45 seconds mark 😀 What I luck! That was a really good ending to my day.
New Page Is Up
Yesterday I started to work on the site again. As I have started to create regular content in ADZ World blog but the main page was still missing, it wasn’t hard to decide what I have to do next.
Half an hour work which I planned at first came out to become 5-hour work 🙂
It wasn’t the only thing I finished yesterday but I come into that little later.
The main question creating that page was how should I set up the links to different topics and share the latest posts from the blog. I tried many different options: Links on the left, fresh posts on the right. Also tried many different post’s layouts until finally went with the current set up.
Note! Just now I released I should have made screenshots from different setups so you could see the progress too. Will do that next time 🙂
After the new page was up I redirected all menu links from finance.2freedom.eu to ADZ World as I feel it has the main things set now to send people here.
Community Page Finally Finished
I created the “ADZbuzz Blogs & Communities” page couple of months ago already but didn’t finish the FAQ part. Now I got that done too. Job well done Armin! 🙂
The main focus now is getting the tutorials page up so I (and I hope you too) can share that page with newcomers. I have to sort my old YouTube videos too and delete all outdated ones which contain old and mostly wrong information.
That’s it for now. Many things are done but still a lot to go. I’m on a mission here and will not stop until I achieve what I’m pursuing 🙂
