And just like that, month 2 of my time at Pearl Lemon is over. I’m a third of the way done with the partnership program.

Which means there will only be 16 more of these blogs for you to read. I know, it really brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it?

There is only one thing I can think of to improve both yours and my mood right now, and that’s a podcast update!

Last night, I recorded another test run, this time with my uncle, and we talked about his construction business that he started in 2003 (when I was only four years old!).

(Me and my Uncle recording our interview)

We talked about his business, and:

We also just talked about his life and family.

Unfortunately, the audio wasn’t great. His son (my cousin) was being a bit of a spaz. While absolutely adorable, my cousin is only two and a half, meaning he was bursting with energy that was equivalent to 16 cups of coffee.

We are hoping to record again, except this time we’ll make sure my grandparents can watch my cousin.

Despite the distractions, I think it actually went pretty well. I did a better job keeping it conversational and keeping things flowing. Again, not perfect, but improvement is improvement.

In other news, I finished my in-house SEO guide!

Well, the first draft.

I need to go back now and rework some things, edit for grammar, add pictures, then give it a nice polish. It’s 10,000 words, so it will probably still take me a bit, but I’m praying it will be done by the end of the week!

Finally, next week I will be managing some new content writers. Yes, you read that right.


I’m going to have SO much power… I won’t let it go to my head, of course. Like the late, great Stan Lee write in Spider-Man:

“With great power, comes great responsibility.”

In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to it. We can definitely use the help, and I kind of like giving feedback and helping people out with their writing.

It will also be a new experience for me. I’ve given tons of feedback on people’s writing before, but it has mostly been to fellow students or colleagues. In this situation, I’m kind of like their teacher (for just a week).

I’ll be like Yoda or Mr. Miyagi (except I won’t make them lift rocks with the force or paint fences).

Well, that just about does it for me this week.

May The Force be with you, Daniel-san.
