Basenotesnotes

How did I fare last week? And productivity in general....

Rate this Entry
Last Monday I attempted to start some sort of regular behind the scenes communication from Basenotes HQ. Within that I provided a list of all the things I wanted to get done. Many of these I managed to fail at, mainly as my taxes had to be files yesterday so I spent most of the time finishing off accounts that I probably should have done earlier.

So, lets have a look at last weeks list...

  • Try and put at least one news/feature up each day [did 5/7 - not bad]
  • Live blog from Scratch & Sniff on Tuesday [yep]
  • Meeting with two people about two as yet unnanounced secret projects [done]
  • Meeting with Janine from UK Fragrance Foundation to discuss Basenotes involvement in the niche award in the UK Fifis [done]
  • Revise forum code of conduct, to make it easier to read and make mods life easier [didn't get time]
  • Finish off latest issue of severely delayed Basenotes Magazine [almost, just waiting on a few bits]
  • Email CPL Project participatipants to discuss next stages [nope, MUST do this week]
  • Launch new bug tracker / features suggestor to make things easier for me to track [kinda]
  • sleep (possibly)
I do have an issue with sleep. I tend to find myself working until 2-3am, and not being at my best. Then, when its my turn, I need to get up at 7am to get the kids to school. I'm thinking I may be better off trying to go to bed earlier and getting up earlier, but I find it easier to stay awake, than to awaken once asleep (any tips)


So this week


  • Aim for seven articles on the front page
  • Get done what i didn't do last week
  • Aim to get my email inbox and todo list under control
  • Lastly, I think I'd be a bit more productive if I sorted my office out... (that's job one for this week)

These should be portrait, but there's not option on this blog to do that, and I can't be bothered to re-upload them. You get the idea anyway - it's messy!

    Grant, you are a hero and we all appreciate your work. May I gently inquire as to the "missing fragrances" updates? I remember an incredible blitz of a year ago that really accomplished a lot. The Directory is one our strengths, it gains in value as it grows and remains current. Stating the obvious, but true...

    I'm adding bits as and when I can. I might even try and work on some system for people to upload their own. Right now! Let's go.....

    Grant, thanks. I think your idea is brilliant! If you can create a template then off-load the work onto us! We will research and plug the data into that template. We are all motivated to be the first to review new and obscure scents! I know I have about a dozen in the hopper. I really endorse this initiative.
