Trying to get better at this blogging thing....so I practice here :) Better blogging ideas feedback is WELCOME!!

First of all - I want to start my weekend off (of which I will be on here limitless hours) by saying a great big huge THANK YOU to the BEST community anywhere!! My last blog was out of frustration - hitting a brick wall - and a little venting (ya'll STILL supported me). And, I will tell you - I got some amazing, awesome, insightful feedback!! And, it keeps coming!! I LOVE IT!!!

I will admit I have already put some things into play that were advised to me - join all social medial for my business (Facebook, Twitter, G+, Instagram, Pinterest and eBay) and stay active daily on them - I'm trying but I am new to ALL of these except FB and eBay!! I will get better with time - you guys can feel free to follow/friend me on any of my social sites - PLEASE DO :)

I have played on social enough today on WA. Now it's down to business - I'm going back and adjusting my website using the feedback I got from BEST the community that gave me awesome advice. I will implement the strategies advised to me and I will join the sites of the links given to me that I have been told will totally help me drive traffic to my own site.

Today - website focus ONLY - I will adjust, rearrange, add/remove content, change my menu, and BLOG (which I learned was very important-and I'm still really new at). Then I will connect with those links given to me. Further, I hope I have time today after all of that to add more than just the one affiliate I have been accepted to on to my site.

By the end of the weekend I hope to be able to share my website AGAIN to see what ya'll think and tear me apart again - YOU HELPED SO MUCH BY DOING THIS!!!

I may or may not move on in my lessons - maybe hit that tomorrow. Today is website website website!! And, again I THANK YOU ALL for the amazing support, feedback, advice, links, etc etc - that you all gave me during my moment of despair.

As I close - don't worry I'm not going anywhere - not throwing in the towel - and I DO know "why the hell I am here." So - yup ya'll are stuck with me :) I am going to see this through - the good, the GREAT, the bad, and the ugly - I will in the end conquer and will have what I need to succeed!!

Patience grasshopper - LOL - thanks for that - I needed that comment!! I promise to be a bit more patient but will ask for advise when needed. Probably in a less venting way next time.

Anyway - THANKS SO VERY MUCH to all those that gave me harsh honest feedback - I LOVE THAT - you have all helped me to grow and to accomplish this one hurdle and move on from here!

I love you guys - thanks again!

Shannon "Shay"

Good advice Shannon. I am recharging my web sites with the latest word press update, 2016 theme and ensuring the plugins are upgraded and loading properly for starters.

Sometimes we just need a tune up - but man those tune ups take time!! I was on yesterday from 8:30 am until 3:45 am - I broke for dinner and that's it - It's just REALLY time consuming - but I want it right!! I have only been able to spend about 7 hours on here today and all I got done was my homepage set up exactly as I wanted it. Geesh - it's a lot - but must be done :)

Good luck, Shannon! You can do this! Remember, "Rome wasn't built in a day" That said, hopefully all our website building won't take quite that long. =)

All the best Shay , I am still in the early stages of my website . What do you mean by blogging is the most important part . I'm a bit confused about writing post's , pages and blogs . Is there a link where I could get more information ?
Thanks Anke

Put that question out to the community - use the white bar above and I bet there are already some categories on this. But I don't want to offer poor feedback to you - I'm still new at this whole blogging thing - but found out through my last blog just how important it is that you have it on your site and use it FREQUENTLY!! Let me know if you find something juicy that I'm not aware of.
