Kenny Chesney Is Bumming Me Out

It’s finally above zero F here, a balmy 5 degrees, I’m sitting here working on promotions for Article Architect and listening to Kenny Chesney’s album, “Be As You Are.”

And the track, “Somewhere In The Sun” is just whacking me upside the head.

I didn’t spend a lot of time in the Caribbean last year, but it was enough that I want to get back there.

No, I *need* to get back there.

I’ve mentioned my dream before — to move my family onto a sailboat and cruise the Caribbean — and some days it just seems so far away. We did ditch the house and move into a travel trailer so we’d be mobile, which is a big step in the right direction.

But as we’re parked here in the snow for the next several months I’m finding my thoughts turning more and more to Tortola, and Antigua, and San Juan.

I have a goal, but I’m realizing I don’t have a *plan* to get to that goal. Oh, I do, but it’s something nebulous, like, “Work really hard at creating and promoting products!”

Pffft! =:)

So this weekend it’s time to plan. Time to create a plan to reach my goal so I can listen to “Somewhere In The Sun” and feel good about it.

Do you have a plan, yourself? Or are you in the same boat I am — working hard, but without a specific focus?

Upcoming Features in Article Architect

I added a couple new features into version 2.6 of Article Architect tonight…

  1. Allow multiple articles to be selected so you can delete more than one at a time. That’s a life-saver when you accidentally import a folder full of dozens of articles — and realize you imported the wrong ones. (Not that I’ve ever done that!)
  2. Find by date created. Now instead of searching by words in an article, you can search for articles you wrote back in July, or the first week in January, or whenever.
  3. Moved Smart Folders to the top of the list where they’re easy to get to.

In the coming weeks I’ll be working on allowing you to create your own Smart Folders. For example, if you want a folder that shows all articles written about dogs, you can do that — no matter which project they’re in.

Or what about a folder that shows all articles written in the last month that have NOT been submitted to an article directory? You can do that, too.

There are several more features that should make it into the next version, but I’ll keep those under my hat for now. =:)

How Do I Decide On New Features?

Sometimes someone will send me an email and say they wished AA did this, or that, or the other thing. And if it’s something that seems reasonable and cool, I’ll try and get it in.

But most features…

…come right out of my head as I’m using Article Architect. I use it ALL the freakin’ time and I’m always running across things I wish it did — so I make a note and then try and put it in.

Yeah, I’d be adding features to this thing even if YOU didn’t exist, because my business is built on content and AA is the only thing I’ve found (created) that can keep it all straight.

Feel free to leave a comment — if you tell me something you wish Article Architect could do, who knows, maybe it soon will! =:)
