Earlier in the month I reviewed my portfolio of sites, and decided that one of the first changes I needed to make was an overhaul of Readability-Score.com. Here's the process I've been through so far.
Cheatography is one of my oldest, and favourite websites. It has suffered from a lack of attention, and high hosting costs, and I've been hard at work fixing both of those problems.
Just occasionally, I have an idea for a website, and my first step is usually to see if someone else has done it first. That's not always a showstopper, but sometimes someone does something so well, there's not much point in continuing with my own idea. Here are a few of those annoyingly well-done sites.
I have a tendency to be disorganised sometimes, so a few months ago I started using a daily planner. I print one off every morning, and work out what I'm doing while I have my first coffee of the day. Grab yourself a free copy of the planner I use and see if it helps you too!

For the last ten years or do, I've been releasing cheat sheets on my various sites. Originally ILoveJackDaniels.com, then AddedBytes.com, and now Cheatography.com.

Before I start planning my first steps towards a better passive income, I need to turn a critical eye to my current set of websites. I have more sites than time, so I need to understand where best to spend my time, and where the opportunities are.
I have been building passive income websites for a long time, but the passive income was always an afterthought. I enjoy what I do, but it's time to take a more directed approach, and that starts with better understanding what "passive income" actually means to me.

In November 2015, Mrs Dave and I were lucky enough to add a pair of identical twin girls to our little family. This is, from my hazy memory, what the first few weeks had in store, with some tips for dads of twins thrown in for good measure.
