Baffled by the Amazing Flying Circus
They are flying around, in a colorful three-ring circus in my computer.
The guys on the high wire are calling out for me to "build SEO links now that can bring in 4,678 people a day." and "sign up now, before we're back down in the ring and all of the spaces are gone."
Then, the men and women on the beautiful high flying trapeze yell out "... boost your traffic...", "... build your traffic...," "... get our system to bring in 22,578 people a day..." The woman sitting on the swing says "... without traffic, you are dead," and she disappears. All that is left of her is a grinning face at the top of the tent, looking like the Cheshire cat in 'Alice in Wonderland,' and saying "... you must act now, you must act now..."
Startled, I sat up and shook the strange dream out of my head.
And I realized, yes, all of these elements of IM are swirling in this newbie's head. So much information is in there, I had to get another bottle of Excedrin. It is information overload. The last day or two, what I've been working on is simplifying my work, and my understanding of IM:
- I am not looking at any new emails selling the next new, best, wonderful thing for IM, traffic, SEO, etc.
- Starting today, I am reading some of PotPie Girl's articles about simplifying IM and getting things going.
- I am building my websites -- one site at a time. Working my way through the WA Affiliate training plan.
- And, I am continuing to go through the training program.
You, see, I am a Gemini. And, all of these different elements of IM are like candy to me at first. But then, like all candy, it backfires.
I'd love to know what you are doing to simplify things and make progress.
Thanks for the comments, guys!
