This is my 2nd try at the training here in WA. I had to quit last summer due to an overload with my work and didn't have the time to focus on building my business. Things have slowed down somewhat and I'm hoping I can do it this time.
At least for on a limited basis for now. Tourist season is winding down and I now have some free time. I am anxious to get caught up with my website. I think I'm going have to go back and start over with some topics, but it feels good to be doing something. Lots to do.
Today was a free day for me , so I decided to log on and work on my website. It felt good and I have some fresh ideas. So I will try to be here at least once a week. I want to keep on learning and progressing.
I live in a town who's only industry is tourism. So summers are our busiest time for all us locals. Sadly I will not be able to be involved in the great community here or work on my website as often as I would like. It slows down somewhat in August. I will try to check in at least a couple times a week. I don't like losing my momentum. Thanks everybody!
After weeks of researching keywords for my website and adding more images and posting just about everyday, I decided to see how my site was ranking on Google. And it isn't! I must be doing something wrong. After checking out other websites on my niche, I find they are more informative, while I tend to blog on my personal knowledge and experiences. SO I don't know what to do. Start all over? Different niche? New direction? I am discouraged because I have so little time to work on my sit
After feeling like I wasn't going anywhere with my website and a day of feeling sorry for myself, I decided to look again at my site and made some minor changes. Also did a bunch of research and looking at other sites for ideas. Then took a long hike to process it all. So I'm re energized. What I learned from this is to research, take my time and reach out for help when I need it
I'm not ranking on Google or Yahoo and I'm not sure why. So I'm going back to the beginning to see what I've been doing wrong. And I will be asking for help from the community with each step. But this setback has me discouraged. But I'm not giving up even if I have to completely rebuild my website
Recently I haven't been very involved with WA. Mainly just comments and likes. And that bothers me. But I have been dealing with some health problems and family issues. Things are better now and I am really anxious to get back to working on my website. I added another post and am waiting for approval from a couple of affiliate programs so I can start adding some links! Then I will feel like I have a website! Love this community!
Unfortunately I was not able to visit WA much this week and keep up with my responses or even work on my website. My full time job took up much of my time this week. But I did make some progress and I am pleased with that. I am ok with working this at my own pace, just as long as I don't compare myself to others. Next week I will do more
