beautifulballetflats is up and running - woo hoo!

Last Update: March 15, 2015

I confess now I'm no stranger to building websites - in my 'day job' i build WordPress sites for a living for small and micro business owners, and boy, can it be hard work! Not the software, the clients :-). I was able to get my new site here at WA up and running in no time. I COULD have gone it alone and built a blog, after sifting through thousands of WP themes and finally paying for one, and tried to get affiliates going on my own, but when I read quite a bit about WA I thought it sounded exciting and offered terrific resources. I wasn't wrong and I'm so glad I joined and went Premium.

What's good about this place is that we are all members and can help each other out, whether it's answering questions or commenting on someone's blog - helping their own google rankings with the hope they will do the same for us. I've seen some superb sites in the few days I've been on here.

One plugin I have added to my site which I suggest everyone does is a subscription button so people can get your latest post into their inbox. Yeah, I know, email is SOOOO last century, but people do still read their emails. Especially if you're targeting the 40+ market. I used the Simple Subscribe button.

Throwing the question out there: what other plugins have some of you used and would recommend? I'm always interested in plugins I haven't discovered for myself yet.

I'm hoping I get at least a few affiliate sales in the next three months. I really do want this membership to lead me to a better income than the one I currently have from my website and graphic design business. I've drawn up a list of future blog posts based on those delicious low-hanging fruits which should get some traffic to my site, with the aim of doing one or two a week. I may well do one a day for the first couple of weeks just to populate the site and make it look more attractive for affiliates.

I haven't thought too much about six months ahead; what I want to see first is some income coming in from my current site. If I don't think I'm generating up to my target - and I would be hoping to get at least $500/month by then - I may start a second site on a different topic.

Head on over to Beautifulballetflats to see what I've done so far. Comments on the few posts there are would be very welcome ;-)

HI Quintina. I checked the link again. Seems the system automatically puts an extra http in. I've edited it twice now and the link should work this time!

Your hyperlink goes to: Server Not Found. Yes, a double http:// would do that.

Ive now fixed that in the link. I do hope.

Hi Sabrina, tried to look at your site but keep getting 'this page cannot be displayed'.

Hi Jo, thanks for checking that. I didn't realise the system would automatically add an http:// and I already had one in the address. Funny how two http://s kill a link :-)
