What is a realistic figure as to how many websites can a person who is still in training, work a full time job, a family to raise and still able to maintain them the way they should be maintained effectively?

That is a very good question and one that likely many folks new to online marketing wonder about. If you look around at what has been added here on the membership site by many, you will see that most recommend sticking with one...

I have to say that is some good advice based on my own experience. When I first started I had aspirations of maintaining and building many websites simultaneously.

It did not take long for me to realize that this was not going to work, there is just too much to do for each. you fall behind, things don;t get done, and overall you have a lot of sites that are not their best...

Especially in the situation that you describe, it would be better to focus on one and do it well. The other things in your life that are also important limit the time you have for online marketing, so you have to make the most of the time you do have by focusing on that one site...

Have a look at what others here will advise, but that is what I think...Later as you get more experience and things become clearer as to how it all works, things will speed up for you...

I mean that you will be able to get more done in the same time, because you have the skills and the knowledge, you have learned about tools that help leverage your time, and you are extremely focused...

Then you can add that second or third site and income stream and have a much higher chance at success with all of them@

Best of luck!

That is very good advise Dave. It is why I asked the question. I was starting to have a hard time trying to maintain the two websites I have now. Now that I have all the feedback from people that are more experienced than myself, I have decided that I will not built anymore until I have enough experience to be able to manage more than one site,

Thank you very much for your advise Dave. It is very much appreciated.

I would stick to one, make it successful, and only then branch out :-)

I have two sites but I started my first month and a half just doing one. Since I am so perfect for my niches the two sites are doable for me. Coming up with content is not hard. It is time consuming but I am surviving. If I took on anymore I would burn out.

Thank you for your input. Having two websites while I am still in training is starting to be a little bit of a challenge.

I settle for one and a test page that is a subdomain

It's best to focus on just one website.

Hi Marion. I know that now but my first website was built it as a favor for my sister for her new care-giving business. I can't back out of that now. I guess I will not start another one until I am done with the training.

Thank you for your advise Marion. I appreciate it very much.

Good morning Taetske. Thank you very much for your reply. I have two websites too. They are still in the construction phase and it is a lot of work but I enjoy every minute of it. I just want to be realistic about how many sites I can maintain properly while I am still in training.

My regards to you too,
Pelesio.

Good morning Pelesio,

I am still bettering my websites every day, little details here and there. Then I have to write at least a new post for each of them every week. I have enough material to do that but am lacking time.
In my next life, I am going to live in a place where they have a 48 hours day.

I am off to work in the garden which I enjoy, Happy Easter.

The only place that can come close to a 48 hour day might be in Alaska...hahaha. And a happy Easter to you too Taetske.
