Incredibly busy working....but feeling like there's not much to show for it
I have been quite busy and I check WA several times a day (almost obsessively, I will admit!) although I haven't been interacting too much. I decided to start a second site while maintaining and growing my first site. The second site I am extremely excited about but the more I develop it, the more I realize I am actually writing/creating a massive tome that will eventually be a masterpiece but seems never-ending! I am confident about the structure and the content and the development of it is leading me to consider actually creating an e-course to sell and even book speaking engagements on the subject material. But for all the work I am putting into it, I'm getting anxious that I don't have anything to show for it! I know it's ridiculous because slow and steady wins the race. But I'm ready for some action! Patience is not my strong suit.
I'm frustrated with social media. I post all of my articles from my first site on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. There seems to be a small amount of interest but very few comments on social media and the site itself. I know that the secret to using social media is to be engaging but that all seems so exhausting to me! Posting on others people's walls, tweeting and retweeting, etc. That seems like a full day's work on its own.
I am doing so much writing for my own sites, I have not had the time or brain power to write for Street Articles or HubPages and the thought of writing more than what I am doing for my own sites makes me crazy!
Gee, this sounds like a rant! I certainly don't want to come off as negative! I really am enjoying developing these sites. Through them I am teaching and sharing my passion. That is invigorating. And I believe in the concept of IM whole-heartedly. Still waiting for....some action and payoff!
I have had one small victory. A site visitor did sign up for the free trial offer of one my affiliate programs. So that is something! Hopefully she will decide to stay and I will start earning a commission.
So anyway, that's me just in case you were wondering where I was! I hope you all are having a fantastic time in your worlds!
The only response to the question, "How are you?" is "FABULOUS!"
