I Changed My Mind; Staying for Year 10.

Last Update: March 30, 2017

I wrote some time back that i was leaving in May. Well, my doctor said I'll probably be around for a few more years so I decided to stay for year 10. I host my sites here and I still have about a dozen active sites so I may as well stay here rather than shutting all my sites down now. I've started updating my sites again.

I'll be renewing in May.

John,

Let's make it "For another 10 years" for the beginning, and then we'll think what to do next!

I so love to hear that you are here with us!

All the best!

You know you are my inspiration. If John can keep this up - so can I.

When I first read the title of this post I misread it. I thought it said you would be staying for another 10. You just never know - it could happen.

Thank you, Sylvia! That's what I need, a geriatric nurse. LOL I use to go to Ontario often on business, as well as your Germany. I loved going to both places. John

Hello again, Jewel. I still want to go to Singapore, think about it often. However, i don't think I'll be making such a long journey again. How are your 4 children and family? Well, I hope. Are all working in the family business, a great way for children to learn. Thank you, Jewel!

Great news. It would seem a pity to close down sites though if leaving. I wonder if we can transfer membership to another family member?

Great to hear John...
A dozen sites - is it alot of work maintaining them all?
For me, i'm not sure if I should focus on just building 2 sites only or if I should be thinking about building alot more than just 2...
Any thoughts from your years of experience????
What's a good number of sites to work towards for a part-timer...
Thanks
Paul

I suggest one main site in Relationships, Expensive Hobbies, Make Money and Health and Beauty. For WA affiliates, I would have one site for that. Get them working before you start another site. J
