November gave me the opportunity to see one of my dearest friends, again, after +10 years!
I met Wendy when I was 13 or 14 and we could chat again this year! 😀
I think that’s the pyke of happiness for November, because it was a pretty awkward month in terms of energy.
I had every reason to quit this month. I was sick, tired, stressed and weak all over November but thank God, I stood up against all of that and kept working to survive it.
Which made November a great month just by that.
I’m not gonna lie, I had a rough time on November but I can see why I needed that. It made me work harder and now I’m feeling results, I hope I can see them as numbers in the next few months. 🙂
Milestones that made me happy this November👪
+600 views on Youtube
My Youtube channel is weekly updated but only subscribers can see my new videos. I decided to hid all my videos except for 5.
Those 5 videos had the courage to get +600 views on their own. (Because Youtube only counts views from public videos).
The only way to get to see the next new video is by subscribing to the channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/kathmontero ❤
+60 readers on Gumroad
Gumroad is the platform I use to sell my work. Also is the host of the Small Product Lab. And one of the platforms I use to send my newsletter.
I started writing the Making-of The Mini-Guide series and released chapter by chapter on my blog. (You can read the series over here). And I think that helped to reach this new milestone, because the perfect way to know when the next chapter will be released is by subscribing to the newsletter at Gumroad (http://kath.pw). ❤
5 followers on Soundcloud.
This is a funny story. One Twitter friend linked to a Britney Spears a capella song on Soundcloud (this was on 2013) and, apparently, you could download it if you had a Soundcloud account. I didn’t want the account, just the song, so I logged in with my last Facebook, listened to the song and didn’t find the download button. Then, I got mad because Facebook published what I was doing at Soundcloud. I unlinked everything and try to delete that Soundcloud account.
Just like the download button for the Britney’s song, I didn’t find how to delete it. So I just abandoned the account and that was it.
Now, coming back to November, I started listening to the Fizzle Show among other podcasts. But having them on RSS seemed unpractical and subscribing over iTunes, too. My phone was a great choice for listening podcasts while I was on the shower but I didn’t want to sacrifice my cellphone battery when I was on the computer.
So, I saw most of the shows had the Soundcloud option.
And since I had an abandoned Soundcloud just waiting for me, I said, why not?
My biggest surprise was restoring my password and see that I had 5 followers. I didn’t upload anything, not even mentioned I had opened it (except for the auto Facebook posts several years ago) so having 5 people over there is shocking! Good shocking, though!
I like to sing every once in a while but also like to talk a lot, so I still have no idea how am I gonna use Soundcloud or if I’m gonna use it at all, but you can still visit my Soundcloud account if you want, it’s here: https://soundcloud.com/queith ❤
That’s it for November, can’t wait to see what happens in one of the happiest months of the year! Almost done with University for this year and all the Christmas dinners invitations are starting to appear in my mailbox!
