June recapInspired by Copyblogger’s Weekly Wrap,


where they highlight their topics for the week, I thought I’d come up with my own version of a recap.

Instead of a weekly wrap, though, I will be doing a monthly wrap or a month in review of the varied topics that I covered for the month of June. A June recap.

So, here it is:

Empowered Online Entrepreneurs’
Monthly Wrap!



I started the first week of June by acknowledging the Top Five Commentators of May. It was the first time I had a Top Five in the list!

I eventually went on to talk about goal-setting in what turned out to be a very effective title for a post, Marry For Love, Not Liquor. A June recap wouldn’t really be complete without a reference to a wedding in June, would it?

Before the first week was over, I welcomed another guest blogpost by my good friend, Marcus Baker, who happens to be this month’s Top Commentator!

“Thank you, Marcus, for your overwhelming support, not only by gracing my website with such an eye-opener of an article, but also by your constant presence and insightful comments to my every post. I am so filled with utmost gratitude!”

Then I proceeded about the great debate as to whether you give away content for free or give it in exchange for a name and an email.

I also outlined the things that we could do to a green business online. In more ways than one, we can do our bit part in being ecologically sound in business.

I also introduced the burgeoning concept of the zettabyte and how it will alter the way we do business online.

If you’ve noticed, it looks like I really focused on instilling a good business sense this month of June as I likewise tackled language preferences in using Twitter for business. In addition, I went on to discuss the more important points in handling business online like positioning one’s business as well as laying the ground work for an informed and intelligent decision-making process in business.

To provide a refreshing take on social media matters, I also featured excerpts about online etiquette from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop. This was of course in addition to the series of online etiquette tips that I shared with you.

Lastly, as June marked the end of the first half of the year, I deemed it necessary to have a midyear check to round up my June recap.

And The Second Half Of
The Year Begins Now!

  1. Hi Elmar,

    Even though inspired by Copyblogger, what a great idea this is Elmar. You do have a knack of coming up with these. 🙂

    An overview of the past month gives readers a concise snapshot summary of what one’s blog is all about and of course if someone has missed a post or two during the month, it’s a great way to be reminded to catch up on one’s reading.

    I may just have to borrow this idea from you Elmar if you don’t mind but of course I’ll give you the credit and a link back to you blog. 🙂

    In fact I am thinking of perhaps combining the monthly wrap up and top supporters for the month in one longer post. How do you think that might work?

    Lastly Elmar thank you again for the opportunity to guest post here. I really enjoyed creating the post and reading all the follow up comments.

    Also thank you so much for your kind words. It’s always a pleasure to visit your blog and comment on your awesome posts.


  2. Hi Marcus,

    My pleasure! No problem! I’m glad you really liked the idea. 🙂 It’s really a nice way to cap the month or week, depending on your preferred frequency. Gives someone a bird’s eye view of what topics you’ve covered so far. Excited to share notes with you at the end of July!

    For everything else, you’re very much welcome!

    Take care,

  3. Hi Janet,

    Thank you! I’m really glad you liked the concept. Marcus is also keen on using it, too, this month. I’m excited to see his spin on it!

    Yes, I just realized that this will really make my monthly blogs a little bit organized! Thanks, Janet! 🙂

    Take care,
