Finding A Work Life Balance with Wealthy Affiliate
Last Update: Oct 31, 2018
As my activity with the Wealthy Affiliate community has increased over the past few weeks, so has the number of email notifications that I receive on a daily basis. Due to all my efforts, and help within the community, my ranking within the platform has adjusted reflect that effort.
But in the past few days, I have started to notice that all my efforts within the community have started to take time away from other activities, like working on my website. This has caused me to refocus on the importance of finding a work life balance.
The traffic on my website was consistently increasing, but then within the past month, traffic has suddenly dropped like a rock. I am no longer getting clicks on my AdSense ads, and traffic to all my affiliate programs have also come to a screeching halt. I almost feel like I am being penalized by Google, but I am still not quite sure why.
Since my primary focus since returning to WA this year was to my Surviving Cancer blog, I need to refocus and take these last few months to complete the training, and work on consistently adding new content to my site each week.
Have no fear, this in no way means that I am leaving WA! Quite the opposite. I will be around a lot more, but instead of taking hours every morning to respond to all the notifications that I had received in the last 24 hours, I will instead try to do my best to limit my time on those emails so I can better focus on building my site.
This change will most likely mean that my ranking within WA will start to go back up, and while this bothers me somewhat, I need to remember that Ambassadorship within the WA platform was not part of my plans for 2018.
I will still be around, welcoming new followers, and replying to any PMs that I receive. So if you need me, please don't hesitate to reach out! Although I may not reply right away, I am still here to help!
