I was really happy after my last blog post helped me clarify my plan of action. However, by the end of that day I was already off the plan :-/
I was so happy with how good this site was looking so quickly, that I couldn’t help myself. I had to start building a new website for my baby, Where’s Sharon?. I had lots of justifications, primarily that I have the best chance of building up a greater reader base while we are away on our trip next month, so it’s better to have a new site now. Especially as my urls are going to change, and I don’t know how successful I am going to be with forwarding urls, and keeping the tiny gains I have already made in search rankings.
Anyway, what’s done is done, and I can’t say I’m too sad that I veered off course. I am so happy with how my website is going so far, and I hope to have it live next week. I am still learning many of the same things that I wanted to learn as part of this plan – skills like building sites in wordpress and better understanding SEO.
The site is getting there and so are my skills. I’m feeling quite confident in wordpress now, and I know much more about SEO than I did, although it is still not much. I am still learning and that is the main thing.
I plan to have this site go live during the next week, and my travel blog on the weekend. There will still be lots of things I want to fine tune, but they will both be looking good and overall, ready to go. I am quite excited!
Then, I will go back to my plan 🙂
