Having a down

Last Update: February 08, 2018

Hi, you all, I'm having a down at the moment.

I worked for weeks in a row now, for 10 plus hours daily and now I don't know how to write the 11 more posts I should until the end of the month.

I should write for 30 minutes and see how many words I can achieve but write an actual post withstands me. Am I burned out? I started "Pinteresting" this week and did quite a lot there. I had a success post this week and told you about it.

Now I see all the site visits go down dramatically since yesterday and I don't know why. I really want this thing to get rolling but there is so much to take care of, I don't know where to start.

Today I finished the work on Pinterest for the moment. I started working at 4 am and now it is 8.30 and I should start a new post for the super affiliate challenge. I know what to write about, even researched a quite good keyword but when I wanted to see if my page visits improved because of posting on Pinterest it was depressing lol.

Now I thought it might be the best and tell you about my current situation so you don't think I am a superman or something lol.

Creating content every day is a real challenge for me. I am actually German-speaking and have to translate the whole thing into English. Ok, I speak English since my childhood but the practice is missing over again.

To create unique content for promoting WA I think is easy in the beginning but with time I am afraid there are no more topics left to talk about. I'm afraid my website starts looking a bit funny if I write hundreds of articles promoting WA form different aspects of website building for beginners.

I am already not sure if I can add all articles to the menu that promote WA. To write reviews takes a lot of time due to having to understand what I am writing about. There has a lot of research to be done and optimally trying programs and products out my self.

I did that with the Wix website builder program but now I should do it with about 10 more. It is also not easy to get approved as affiliate partner by all the programs I review and if I'm not an affiliate, I leave money on the table as Kyle likes to call it.

You see, only problems, as far as the eyes go lol.

Now I don't know how I should go on, sure I will go on but at the moment I have a blockade. Maybe I just have to take a day or two off and relax and change input for some time. But I am in a time pressure and am afraid 20 days won't be enough o write another 22'000 words of quality content.

Ok enough for now, I will see what comes up to my mind, there is always a door opening if one doesn't block it. I hope you have a creative and productive time. The weekend is coming, here it is already Friday but what does this mean anyway.

Weekends are made for overtime lol. Ok, another 6 minutes I will continue writing so at least I have fulfilled my today's task in the Bootcamp.

I don't know anyway, do we go on with the Bootcamp or now that we are super affiliates do only what the monthly program says. I guess I'll have to read that article once more.

To do all these tasks indeed is challenging, at least for me. Good luck, I have already published some posts the last weeks and am able to count some of these into this month's tasks.

Ok, we'll see, I am still ready to do this but setbacks are never the things we like to experience. Now I have to correct the 40+ mistakes I wrote here in this article by speed writing.

687 words, not bad, not good, my two fingers start to hurt already lol.

Have a great, better one, see you, Stefan

Don't look at it as 22,000 words in 20 days. Just look at 1000 words tomorrow and don't even think of the day after until it comes.
Take breaks often. I try to get up every 45-50 minutes and go outside and walk around the yard. It's cold here so sometimes I might just walk up and down the stairs a few time and get a drink.

After lunch I put an album on my phone and go for a 2 1/2 mile walk with the music loud. It sort of clears my head to hit it again when I get back. Just mix things up again and break your job up into little chunks. that way with each completed chunk you feel like you are making progress. I think you are over whelming yourself by thinking to far ahead. One day at a time or even one hour at a time.

My mother has always told me that if I ever get stuck on something I should put it away for an hour or so, then come back to it with a fresh mind. Sounds like you are tired, so have a break and I am sure after that you will be typing your fingers off.

You are doing great Stefan.

All the best.

Hi Stefan,

When I feel like my mind is completely blank. I start to feed myself with negative thoughts such as, oh I can't do this anymore. I don't know how to continue. What's going to happen tomorrow? Will I continue to not have a clue as to what I want to write about?

What usually ends up happening is that I take a break from my website entirely. Forget about looking at google analytics, social media, etc. (Not for too long though or else you become lazy haha)

An idea would randomly pop up! If that doesn't work, just gather ideas from other affiliate marketers with similar niche!

Or

Check your comments for questions people left behind. Have you written a blog before that answers to that question?

I know you can do it!

Kind Regards,
Eric

Take a break! Regroup and go back at it. At this point we should jyst be concentrating on super affiliate. If there's time to stay ahead in the bootcamp then by all means do so. Go back and read kyles instruction. There are lots of topics. We are not just writing WA reviews. Or just reviews.

It's easy to get overwhelmed. I started reading everyone's training blogs a while back and found I got completely side tracked. Although it was goid information I wasn't ready for it yet. So I just went back to the lessons to go step by step.

Taking a step back is sometimes just all we need to do.
Get some rest, clear your head, and jump back in!

Make it a great day!

There clearly is a lot to do. And it can easily become overwhelming. Just remember this:
How do you climb Mt. Everest? One step at a time.

I also think of this one:
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

I know it sounds corny, but it's true and keeps some perspective.
Sometime you have to go away for a little while and then come back.
Don't worry, you'll get there.... on post at a time!
