My self-improvement journey, both personally and professionally.
I started the challange of running at least one mile a day on March 20, 2018. I decided to document my journey publicly on Instagram, where I show how much I ran each day.
I wanted to do this because I thought it was a great way to develop discipline and healthy habits. Before this, I only ran about two times a week.
At first it was just a 30 day challange, but after accomplishing that, I just didn't want to stop. I've now gone past 100 days and don't know when I'll end it.
Through this challenge I've learned to love running and to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I've also lost weight and feel a lot more energetic in any given day.
This is a website I made for my local running club. I wanted people to discover, learn about, and join the club easily. Especially people who wanted to pick up running as a hobby but were struggling to do so. (I was one of those people until I found this club.)
I also wanted to use this as an opportunity to become familiar with WordPress page builders. (specifically Thrive Architect)
With this project I learned a bit about how to design an appealing, high-converting website and how to communicate with the people I'm working with.
I also learned that there is pretty much no limit to the things a non-coder could do with a website; all you have to do is find the right tools.
Smart Archery is an affiliate site I created in 2016. In it, I wrote crossbow reviews.
It was my first attempt at creating something of value (aka non-school related).
With this project I learned about building websites, SEO, keyword research, product research, and writing for a specific audience.
At it's peak, Smart Archery recieved more than 3,000 monthly clicks through Google and $700 in earnings.
