When life gets chaotic.

Last Update: August 02, 2016

Have you ever had one of those times when everything in life gets going and you end up just chasing your tail to get the most important things done and the rest keep getting put off?

Wow, that was a lot to say in one sentence. I just needed to vent because for the last 3 weeks things have gone completely nuts in my household and at my job. I've been so strapped with getting the big 'fires" put out that my poor websites and my Bootcamp work have gone to the wayside.

I am so bummed because I was on a roll. My site health was looking up and my rank was getting very good.

I hope that doesn't hurt my website health too much. Hopefully things will get back on track at least at my job, so that I can go back to enjoying my work at Wealthy Affiliate.

If anyone has any advice or experience in this, please post a comment for me. I am quite worried about my websites. I've worked hard on them and I don't want to lose steam.

Thanks for letting me vent, for being understanding, and most of all for all of the support you have always shown me here at WA!

Hi Tina, I know exactly where you are coming from but don't worry about it as you can get back on track when you get a chance and get your site health back up. xx

When I first started doing this, every day there was a reason for me not to proceed and each time I pushed through it those days became far and few between. You have to let them know you mean business. I still have my reasons, but they don't create as big a fuss as before.

Anomalies, programmed or not, and other things that get in the way are always temporary. Just keep plodding and it will even out.

I can relate Tina, happens at least once a week. My coping mechanism is to try and not panic, in the early days I did but it doesn't change a thing. When times like this strike even just do one thing a day on the knowledge that things will come right and this time will pass.

Recognising where you are is powerful. It enables you to get perspective. Keep going forward. I wish you all the best.

About the only thing that can hurt your site is a lack of publishing. So...all you need to do is start writing again. Publish maybe threr in a row, boom, boom, boom, and things will be great.

That is my biggest worry! So, if I write again now it should bounce back OK?

I have exactly the same problems, Tina!

You know, when worst comes to worst, don't think that every visit to your website has to be a 1500-word one!

Just going to it and doing something will encourage the momentum, and stop that guilty feeling from taking hold....

And it is easier to go in and out that way, a better flow is there for when the inspiration comes.....

Hope this is helpful....☺

Is it OK to publish posts that are less than the 500 word?

Hi Tina,

I can definitely relate. It's hard and draining to be living in crisis mode all the time. Just accept the fact that you are only one person and you can't do everything right now. Try to remind yourself that things will improve and you'll start rolling again better than ever!

Tina - It WILL get better. The ONE good thing about chaos!

If you have it in your day...........you know you are alive!

If it is missing from your day..............you are probably dead !

Oh dear, it is a bit frightening to think of that chaos as being such a big part of our lives, but you are right!
