Off track already

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.

My new travel blog so far

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 🙂
