I am feeling good about myself. I have got a whole lot done this week, and this is my busiest week of the month at work. I usually do not get to do much on my websites during the first half of every month, but I did this week.I was able to write 4 really good blog posts (I think anyhow). I usually do not have the time but I have found time this week.I have not deprived my children or wife this week either. I will not do this for the sake of my websites.I did buy a bluetooth keyboard for my

I got an error message today on WA that my comment limit has been reached. I have been answering questions today that I know how to answer. I always welcome new members to the community, because I thought it was great when others welcomed me when I joined.Is this something new, or is it a WA error like the keyword tool and Jaaxy not working. I do not know, but I never knew of a comment limit.Well, on another not I have made a good quality blog post everyday this week. Yep, 2 days, 2 blog po

I have not been able to engage others for a few days. I have answered some questions but I have been working on my keywords and taking a second look at my content quality.I know you can mess up your rankings changing posts, but I didn't change much at all. I mostly just added to them. I had some posts with only 300 words, so I researched for more quality content to add to them.I built my first site while going through the certification courses, so I did not know that we needed to have our po

I have written three blog posts in two days. This is a major accomplishment for me because I have had a very busy schedule this weekend and have also spent a lot of time for my family.I notice now I am thinking about content to write about in my spare time consistently and I will just write out paragraphs at a time on site content, save it, then get back to what I was doing.It is a little hard writing this stuff on my Iphone, so I do not try to link anything or insert pictures during this time

At work we contract out our IT related work to a local company. When we first signed the contract they were great, but they signed up some really large companies and we are not getting the quality service we did at first.The CEO, CFO, and the rest of the Executive Group which includes me were in the conference room for a budget meeting, 2nd day of it. I had 3 employees come into the meeting for me to fix their IT problems during this time. I use to be a network administrator for a health car

I put in a 14 hour day today, with a 1.5 hour commute each way. Tired and just going through my emails. Have 150 emails before I got started going through them, now down to 75. Now trying to brainstorm on a blog post for one of my sites.I need to put out at least two blog posts per day to keep up with all of my sites, but I do not see it happening this evening with knowing I will have a day tomorrow just like today. Having to meet with the CEO and CFO for budget meetings. They are reviewin

I just found out I missed putting meta descriptions on 5 of my blog posts. I know better than this. We have to take our time and make sure we take every precaution so we do not forget things. Granted, Site Content is great, but we can’t just write and then just publish to our sites.Another thing, we have to do our research before installing plugins. I installed one to automatically post to my social media. It only posted to my home page and I had to share. What if I had set up the s

I started Wealthy Affiliate on September 2, 2017. From the training I know you have to be patient to get your rankings high so you can get traffic to your sites. This is probably my hardest feat to overcome.I was never a patient person until I started raising children with my wife. I have always been the type of person that would see something wrong or needed fixed, and I would fix it right then.I am still learning how to be patient. I guess we will all be learning patience throughout our l

I have been looking at a lot of blog posts talking about Yoast SEO. After reading PatsyC's blog about fixing your sites to prevent trackbacks and pingbacks which will destroy your SEO rankings to boost theirs, I fixed my sites. Then, after a lot of curiosity, I installed the Yoast SEO plugin. I thought, why not. Other people like it, so it can't be that bad.I really love Yoast SEO. It gives you a green light if your readability is good, and a green light if your SEO settings and what you h

The first thing I did was go through my emails and ran across a blog from Paul Goodwin here at WA. He was talking about a Russian search engine called Yandex. I got interested and put my websites on it.Then I wrote to blog posts today and set up an optin with an email generator for one site. I already have it on my others. I feel I got a lot done today. I also worked outside of my house.I have noticed that since I started taking hikes with the Cub Scout Den I am a leader of that my stanima
