Introducing The New ‘Today, Not Someday’ Series of Podcasts

Today’s episode is the first in a new series of podcasts that will take us up to the end of the year about what you can do to make your blog ready for success in 2016. The focus will be your ‘someday’ list, the things you’ve always wanted to do to improve your blog but have struggled to make happen.

I’ve realised many of the things on my ‘someday’ list are things that could significantly improve my blog and my business and lead to a rise in income, things I really should be doing and could be achieved with a concerted burst of effort, if only I could get past my procrastination.

This series is about me sharing my journey to turn my ‘someday’ tasks into things I make happen today. I’ll share with you what works and what doesn’t, and give you tips and resources to help you work through your ‘someday’ list too. We’re all more likely to make these changes if we’re not doing it alone!

  • Love the #TodayNotSomeday hashtag and the community it will build. Looking forward to this series and some helpful tips to knock off the Someday list! Right now my biggest ‘someday’ tasks are some design work I would like to get done and starting on an Ebook for my subscribers.

    • thanks for listening – hope you find it a helpful series. We’re covering both design and creating products in this series 🙂

  • Hey Darren, the #TodayNotSomeday is a great idea! I’ll keep listening in to the follow up podcasts to keep me accountable to my own #TodayNotSomeday list for my blog. Looking forward hearing the next podcast in the series.

    Thank you! Yesterday I created my Easy Christmas Crafts email series (well, I created the first four emails anyway!) and this morning I launched it. So far I have 71 signups in a couple of hours. This has been on my Someday list for a couple of years now but now it is done. It ticks a bunch of boxes – timely, helpful, attracts new subscribers, helps current subscribers, takes people back to my blog Archives, sends traffic over to my blog, and super shareable content. Plus I got to play with the new Aweber Campaign functionality.

    I follow you blog since i can remember… and I’ve always loved your way to explain everything, also, i love the 31 to a better blog.

    I will follow this “Today, Not Someday” series… i hope i get a great results cause it look really awesome, I can already see what can I do to improve my blog and the general experience of my readers.

    PS: I Love the podcast (thanks to you i even want to start mine next year, but I really hate the player, sometimes it just stops playing and you can not forward or backward, so i have to reload the page and wait it loads, then find the time where I lost it…

  • Oh dear, I’m certainly late for this party! But the nice thing about your podcasts, esp the challenges Darren, is that they’re relevant whenever one gets to them. Great them “Today, Not Someday” and I’m definitely working on my list. This is so timely because I’ve been making a lot of design and organizational changes to my blog. A Today… list may keep me on track. Thanks much.
