Don’t ask me why, but I felt like documenting this. And to be completely honest, I don’t know the first thing about this shit. Wait…lemme back up.
I started building websites a few years back to make money(!), but a funny thing happened during the process; it became fun. That is, I enjoyed the steps of putting together websites, working on all of the little details, and watching my skills blossom with each new site. You gotta admit, it’s a pretty cool thing.
But the bottom line after all this time is still the bottom line – my sites don’t get traffic. Knowhatumsayin?
Yeah, you know. You know what it’s like to work hours (YES, hours!) on end diligently fixing a stubborn issue with your site, only to have 8 people actually find the damn thing!
Or, even worse, you put together a bomb ass post that you feverishly slaved over that never gets read. Or maybe you faithfully tweet out, or status update (or whatever) your link only to be ignored. Ignored!
Yup. Me too. And I’ve had it with that crap.
I’ve decided come hell or high water, I am finally going to learn how to do this shit!
And that’s why you’re here right? Because having a website is great – but not getting any traffic is the worst!
Believe me, I know all about those blues. Doesn’t it seem like every asshole and his mother has a successful, highly trafficked site EXCEPT YOU?
I know. It’s painful and humiliating to me too.
And that’s why I started this blog. Truth is, I’ve had this domain name just lying around doing nothing. So I got up off my ass & started this site.
The point here is to document my never-ending journey towards creating an actual, successful website. And I wanted to have a public record of all the bumps in the road going forward. I must be crazy, but I’m doing it.
My goal is to teach (by way of experience) anyone that cares to know how to legitimately build a following that reads your stuff. Or buys your stuff. Or both.
Wouldn’t that be something?
So here I go. This time, I’m going to drive traffic to my website. I’m finally going to do it. And I’m gonna tell you how I did it each step of the way, so we both profit from this crazy endeavor.
Stay tuned…things are bound to get more interesting from here.
