First Stage Evaluation
Let me thank everyone first for taking the time to read my second post. I have only made one thus far and I expect in the future more will come. I do enjoy reading everyone elses although I have days where I am more active in reading, engaging, liking content and others where I am not logged in as much.
For me life continues to throw curveballs and the family and I will be making an out of state move. Ourh ouse is about to go in the market and I suspect it won't be on it for long - leaving a place we love but being closer to some family to have extra support (will be tremendous for us having a young extremely active and time demanding 3 year old) and having better long term economic opportunities is just too much to pass up.
That being said I had stalled on my training to focus on content, site design & fundamentals. I really wanted to get something that would be able to fit my vision and also get some more content posted. My thinking was to make sure I get the foundation set, and do it right before I start to frame the house (talking in metaphors now). This way when I need to make any changes it makes it easier once I have the structure in place.
So far no real traffic from organic searches (I wasn't expecting too much anyway since it does take time). I began to make lists of affiliate offers but have not joined any yet (other than clickbank) since I don't have traffic through the doors and I wanted to get the site looking right and filling it with content first.
So..basically I am looking for some insight and feedback from you all - those of you who are seasoned, had some good success or failures (which are often the best learning tools) where should I be at this point? What are some other things I need to consider? What are things on the site that I need to add, omit or be aware of (plugins, widgets, etc)
I don't want my over thinking of things to get in my way - I do tend to over analyize things - but in that thought process I've learned there are some very valuable ideas I just need to know where to channel the thinking and energy. I've also learned that when I have had those problems I have been most successful with them when I took the time to ask for guidance and get another point of view.
Thats where I am at, if you can help give some guidiance I would love to hear your insight!
