Procrastination and a New Niche
I should have known this was going to happen... I knew what niche I really wanted to embrace when I had an epiphany moment a few weeks ago. Two niches, actually. But that was my first mistake. One niche at a time! I kept telling myself this, but didn't listen.
And guess what?! I got nowhere with both. Thinking retrospectively, there is absolutely no shocker there!
Then I pick one. And stuck to it...
Until I realized that it would need a lot more prep work. (A wellness / alternative health niche site, and since I want to post medical "opinions", I should really have a medical disclaimer.) So I spent my time very well looking through all the WordPress theme options. By "very well" I mean "sarcastic". (-___- )
This was a good move. I decided to focus on my other passion-niche idea: unspoken communication. So, body language, microexpressions, "listening between the sentences", graphology, cognitive psychology, etc. in everyday life.
Another waste of time: for some reason, I felt the need to make the pages perfect before writing any posts. The About Me, About (the site), etc.
I also spent a good deal of time doing keyword research and search-trend research.
Fed-up with having all these puzzle pieces lying out in front of me—but none yet assembled—I finally decided to outline my first post and start writing. I started two days ago and finished today.
Talk About a Passion
I didn't even realize how passionate and knowledgeable I was about this stuff! My first post is almost 1900 words. I don't have images in there yet, but geez! I struggled through writing my content past 400 words on my first site!
Now I am so into making this passion of mine a niche authority site! Just have to keep going. Just will keep going.
This blog post is to serve as my accountability for myself.
