I’m finally back, after a week of being confined to my bed for most of the time with flu. Apart from being extremely boring this was also very annoying as I didn’t feel up to blogging, and didn’t have the energy to research new posts. However, I’m now back home and feeling a LOT better. I will be updating the blog as per usual starting tomorrow, but thought that I would let you all know that Push Standards has definitely not fallen by the wayside.
During the 6 hour train journey back home I began (and almost finished) the design for one of my upcoming projects. I’ve decided that there’s no use waiting around for a hugely successful idea to hit me and not take any chances in the meantime. So, given that mentality I’ve vowed to launch ALL of my website ideas over the next couple of months, starting now. I’ve aimed to launch this next project by the end of next week, and this looks entirely possible right now. I don’t want to say too much about it yet, but may well post more information and a design preview some time before launch. Of all my website ideas there are two that I’m feeling could be very successful. This coming site is aimed at web designers, and the second site will be aimed at bloggers. Both will be VERY helpful resources I’m hoping and should take off within their respective communities.
Being confined to my bed for a week I’ve also spent a fair amount of time doing some simple budgeting and goal setting. I’m aiming to treat summer vacation as the time to really push myself and see if I could envision doing what I currently do for my career (after university that is). As I said I’m aiming to launch every website idea that I have (well the decent ones) and then try and build up a good passive income. I figure that it would be well worth spending to get these ideas online and then hopefully be earning around $1000 per month doing NOTHING before the year’s out. Of course I’ll keep designing as this is what I love doing, but that passive income would be great security for me.
Finally, you’ll see some updates in my portfolio over the coming weeks. For now, I’ve added a great project for Common Sense Health that was completed recently. Check out the casestudy in my portfolio by clicking on the thumbnail below:
