Over the past few weeks I have been increasing my portfolio. I have one return customer with three projects they want done and one new one who wants to have a winter project. So there is extra cash flowing in. And I get to increase my portfolio.
I'm putting more effort into my website for AliKat Designs. I want to start blogging about design more regularly. Like maybe once or twice a week. But this takes research for me, as I don't think I have a lot to say that hasn't already been said. I think I may start doing some free wordpress themes, or various other themes for third party software that I use. Like mybb, phpbb, wordpress, and zen cart once I figure that out. And start learning about wordpress plugins and various other things that can enhance and pull people to my site and to my business.
With this money I think I'm going to split it between Christmas and saving for the C# class I want to take so that I can finally get that done. I'm debating on whether or not to put the money I get from my parents and my grandma towards this class or buying a Wii for fitness reasons. My parents are using Wii fit and like it. I think that would be something very good to try for both myself and Shea and also have some added benefit of playing console games too (like Zelda).
We'll see I'm still setting up shopping lists and the like.
