Sometimes it is not a terrible idea to take a break!
A few months back, I was despairing about the state of my website. I had been working hard for months but had not seen any rewards. I got really upset at one point and stopped working on my stroller site and started a second site.
Before taking a break from my first site, I had hit writers block; my brain just froze and I couldn't come up with new ideas.
Two months later, I decided to go to my stroller site and try again. This time I picked a good keyword, wrote a great content of about 1500 words and posted it. Within hours, I was ranking on the first page of google. A month later, I made my first referal.
Things slowed down again but this time I didn't panic. I did my research and found three good keywords that all ranked on the first page of google in just weeks. Now I get substantial traffic to my website daily.
I am happy I took a break and cleared my head. Taking a break is not quiting; it is an opportunity to relax and come back strong.
Work smart and hard but not too hard!
