I've had to keep telling myself that this week.

  • Stop overthinking.
  • Stop checking analytics.
  • Stop psyching yourself out.

Just shut up and write.

When you finally do you realize it's way easier than you thought.

Anyone else feel like that sometimes?

All the time. I just remind myself that I need to take time off also. Now that I have it set in my head that there is no time limit, I can slow down and be more productive with what I do get done.

I agree. We all have our doubts and sometimes we tend to hang out here too much instead of writing.

Analysis Paralysis I call it, lol. I wrote a blog on it here sometime back. You are so right. Too easy getting distracted with numbers and useless knowledge. As you say, it's only psyching yourself out.

Damien-P, you are so right about analysis paralysis. You just have to get to work without over analyzing

Yes............but I have been using a style as suggest by one of the video courses. I picked the topic, researched and started writing. Now of course there was a time lapse in there, but as they say...........Rome wasn't built in day. Take your time and a breather once and a while.

I am probably too logical, viewing analysis helps me write, it shows me what my audience is all about and where they are coming from in terms of their interests and what they view on the internet....Calms me right down...Lol...just me I suppose.
My organic traffic was really low, it was hovering around 3.1% for quite a while, then dropped to 2.9%...so I changed things up and in a short period of time...within about 10-12 days it went to 10.2%...so I pay attention and go from there. :))

Yep, all the time and you're right, once you just do it, you find it wasn't what you feared.

YES! It's so easy to get caught up with everything else when good content is what really counts!

It is really easy to get caught up in the analysis of your website, and you should be keeping track of it. However, it is the process of writing that is going to make it go places. Sometimes hard to find a balance and enough hours in the day! :)
