The Struggle Is REAL

Last Update: August 05, 2018

The Struggle Is REAL, ya'll.

I am trying so hard to hang in here, but it's tough! Just when I think I have it all figured out I get hit with something that knocks me back down.

There's literally a million ways you can go about creating a money making website. Yes, that is great but it is extremely overwhelming to me. Like how will I ever be able to decide which direction to go. I feel like I am at a standstill. I go back through training sessions and review at times and it is giving me anxiety.

There's so many steps and like I said so many directions you can go that I cannot make up my mind. The training makes everything seem so easy. Pick a niche and start your website. Well, that is great and all but not when you realize that you have to write 1000 word post several times throughout building your website. I decided on a simple product niche and well there's only so much I can write/blog about.

I am just sitting here. Reading posts and hoping a great idea pops in my head soon. Like what can I start a new website on, blog thousands of words about and actually be successful? I am sure that I am overthinking all of this, but that's just me.

I have googled many times looking for examples of websites people have created. Unfortunately, It is not helping me any. It is creating stress on top of stress.

Maybe that is what I should do, lol. Create a "dealing with stress" website.

Anyone else feel this way? Does it get better?

Hi Daesmith:
My name is Nancy and I totally get where you're coming from. I'm at that same place right now. And like you, the more blog posts I read from more experienced people, the more I don't know what I don't know. Seems like there is a whole lot more to this website business that just building it. There's a lot of stuff that goes on in the background that has a huge impact on the success of the site. But I will persevere and keep on slogging through the lessons. Who knows, this mud just might clear up in the end.

I feel that way sometimes too. Then I remember that Rome wasn't built in a day and I have all the help I could ever want right here at my finertips! I haven't really been on here for 3 days and I it's bugging the hell out of me. Been really busy with other things too though. Keep your head up and keep trudging the road to happiness and I'm positive you will do fine! Hope you have a great day today and every other day after it too!

If you feel limited in the number of blogs you can write for your chosen niche, it may not be the right one for you. Ask yourself if you can write 50 blog posts or 100 blog posts for your niche. Will you still be interested in creating content for it a year from now, 2 years from now, or even 5 years from now?

My advice to you is to choose one and go for it...the last thing you want is to get stuck in analysis paralysis. You can always change direction later on if you feel like you made a mistake. Plenty of others (including myself) have done this.

Ultimately, I'd advise going with what you REALLY want to pursue. I know it's cliche but follow your passion and success will follow. BTW, the "dealing with stress" website may not be a bad idea :)

Best of luck with whichever direction you choose to go in.

Mike

I just really wish I heard this loud and clear when I first started my website through training. I def would have went a different direction! I am sure it was probably in the context somewhere, but of course I overlooked it.
My next website will for sure be something I could write about for days.
Thanks for your reply!
