Ultimately confused :( A situation like THIS is why I Need WA
Last Update: Jan 8, 2021
Ok. I am in no way new to affilliate marketing. At the same time, I am completely new to affilliate marketing. WHAT????
I figured it out. What I've been doing for the past decade, and then some, was article marketing, I believe. While affilliate marketing is LIKE article marketing, it really isn't. That fact just hit me like a ton of bricks tonight.
So.. I do have a question sitting in the question space (for keywords). I doubt I can get an answer, because I confused the crap out of myself just trying to ask it! 🤣 Who else but me can confuse themselves trying to ask a question, lol.
Here's the thing - I am not giving up. I figured out what I was doing, and just realized that I've been trying to stay with 'article marketing', thinking that theyr'e the same thing. Well, nope, they're not.
Let's just say this. Right now I'm going to see who else has been 'around the block' like I have. When I started in IM, I was involved in the Rick Jerk Forum. That was a bit of time ago...🙄
I've been through a few different things since then - I've been banned from forums, and I came VERY close to getting sued by an article platform. (that was only because I happened to be on someone's mailing list that was spamming them). Since then, I've just written for people. But now that I want to make MYSELF a residual income, I'm writing for myself. But I know what can happen if I screw it up. And in today's world, I'm not taking any more chances.
Where am I going with this? Just to say. If you're new to this or not, you're going to get confused to the point of frustration. I think I actaully lost a handful of hair tonight. So I had to get up and walk away. BUT. That's how you do it. That's how you get through it. You just shut down the computer and walk away. If you keep going while you're this frustrated, all too often that moment is the exact moment when people quit. Don't do it. Just come back in the morning.
I really just put this here to remind myself of this day. I'm actually proud of myself... I didn't throw my computer across the room 🤨
I hope you have a great night!
Apparently keeping sessions to 45 minutes is best. I read recently that getting up and walking about, changing focus for 15 minutes helps refresh the soul. Instead of doing all the little house jobs in one go I split the working day up with little mini domestics or going for cakes or whatever.
No don't throw the computer across the room, yes just come back in the morning and start again, I have gotten frustrate with myself and the quitting come in my mind, "and that all in my mind", I tell my self, Oh no not this time you are going to stick with it, I have too make this work, I am at the end of my rope, I must do this!!
That's a GREAT idea, Haze! Just shut the computer down! I've done that a time or two!
Oh yes, I can hit FUNCTION + SLEEP in 2 nano seconds and then I'm back in charge until I unlock it.
Enjoy Sunday, mine is drawing to a close.

Taking a break after a discovery like that is always a great idea Haze.
Thank you! :)
