Some Times, The Way Forward Is Not a Clear Road!
You know that I have been here a while- and you know how I think that Wealthy Affiliate is as near perfect as humans can make it! All the education and training are here- so what is the news that I would like to share?
Really, I am asking when the "blinkers" come off? (blinkers are used for horse racing to keep the horse from being distracted from the path he is to run) Is there an official ceremony that lets us know we have finally "graduated" and do not need them anymore?
I have had to have "blinkers" to help stop the distractions of all the stuff in my inbox! Why are they blinding me for what is here?
A review of my site made me realize that I had fallen short of providing "Free Education" information and was some work needed in that area. So- a post was planned to "Learn To Blog For Free." After all, this was a new field for me. I produced "content" but I really did not blog!
Several hours were used up researching, taking notes! Signing up to learn for free at sites where "Blogging" was the main interest, according to their site bio-
You know all the stuff we do when getting information ready to share!
More time organizing notes, figuring out if I really knew how to present this so one could benefit from the post. Have a better idea how to get into the blogging gig!
Got started, was about 1000 words into the post, working hard to get the ideas from head and notes to fingers, and soon was really in "the ZONE". You know that place that makes writing so much fun, and- a flash of blue across the screen! DELETED!
Being a believer in the knowledge that everything happens for a reason, I took a break, came back got all ready and started trying to remember how I got to "the ZONE." struggling along to get going, of course, I wondered if this was one that should not be written! What was the issue!
I had taught myself all the basics of getting started from scratch with a blog site while doing this research! The information was thought out, researched. What was going on? As I got about 500 words in, the struggle continued! I reread my notes about all the boring and unfun stuff of setting up a blog site. Deciding if this was a personal site, or a site to make money, free hosting, free site building decisions!
Then it dawned on me! Why go to so much trouble and do all this yourself, here and there online! You could build a site here at Wealthy Affiliate to blog! You can keep it forever if that is all you want from a site! For free! Get the free lessons, get your site set up and enjoy forever! You do not have all the technical stuff to be concerned about!
The really great thing is that we all know how addictive it is here if there is an aspiring marketer who wants to see their blog go from "blogging only" to an income producing site! The ambition is probably there, here is a way to help the member see the possibilities!
I felt so silly when I realized how much time I had wasted in research, when it was not needed, However, maybe not needed for the post, but for my personal growth, an apparently important step!
Have you had a time that you were just astounded by not seeing the forest for the trees? Please share, I am apparently a slow learner and need some help!
