Better Than I Thought!
I was on target and going strong when I had to leave for a little over a week to visit my son over Thanksgiving. Don't get me wrong I live in Michigan and he lives in LA and I love seeing him and his wife AND the sun! But I was on a roll . I joined in Oct and was slowly but surely building my website every day. For me it is a big deal because I kept amazing myself by actually understanding what I was doing, following every lesson step by step. Just before I left I added an affiliate to my site as per instructions in my certification course to monetize, then off I went.
Well I got back from sunny CA to a VERY COLD and cloudy MI - andI just couldn't get my mojo back. I was struggling through the authorship on google plus when I left for Ca and wasn't sure I had done it correctly. I decided to worry about it when I got back. I was tweaking my website and looking through WA sites but couldn't motivate myself to write more content. That is until I started googling my pages and found out that they were ranking well. My picture showed up and everything! Hooray!
Then I decided to check in on my affiliate situation and found out I made four sales!! Ok nothing huge but still I'm excited! Again - Better than I thought!
Suddenly my mojo is returning and after getting my juices flowing by writing this blog, I'm going to dive back in and write more content. Nothing like a little success to regain some enthusiam.
I did learn a lot by poking around and reading insights on WA but I always knew I needed to keep the momentum going by balancing the learning side of things with more content. With Christmas around the corner I am on guard not to let it sidetrack me like Thanksgiving did. I'm sure everyone has trouble staying on track - for me it seems like it's too easy to get distracted but I am not giving up.
All I can say is if a novice like me can stumble along and get ranked and make a sale ANYONE can! Just had to share this with people who understand. Good Luck Everyone!
