I've Got The "Stuff" For My Blog, But Now I'm Stuc

Postby cindyc » Thu Apr 09, 2009 2:41 pm

Hi Everybody,

The title should read: I've Got The "Stuff" For My Blog, Had To Put It Aside For Awhile, But Now I'm Stuck!

I started planning a blog, bought a domain name, with the intentions of using PLR I've collected. Most of the PLR is geared towards setting up a blog, social media, article marketing, etc. The PLR includes a lot of videos, ebooks, etc., and I used a lot of it as learning tools for myself. I also plan to use affiliate products as well.
Then my grandson was born 4/30/2008 and I pretty much had to stop everything with the blog. (That's a saga in itself...) I took care of him up until about a month ago, plus going to school. This is finally my last semester of school. Thank God!
I haven't done much more with the blog besides coming up with categories, I found a word press theme, and worked on some articles. The problem I'm having is there are so many products and categories I...

1.) Don't know what to start with
2.) I've been learning about SEO and it seems like everybody has their own way of doing it.
3.)And of course, I need to make some money fast.

I guess I just don't know what to do to get started back. My head is full, I just don't know what to do with it. Any suggestions?

The URL is:
It is stripped down and naked...

If you can afford it outsource some or all of what you want to accomplish. There are even Forums to help you accomplish anything connected with IM right here on SSWT. Who knows you might even be able to barter some or all of it.

Haste makes waste, make yourself a plan and stick to it. As the saying goes, FOCUS,FOCUS,FOCUS. Depending on what you prefer do the easy parts first, reward yourself and then quickly move onto the rest or vice versa. Outsourceing that which floors you.

Doing this is a business just like the bricks and mortar ones, just not as expensive to get started and many more possibilties than you can ever hope to complete.

Hope this helps

Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect to start with. And the beauty of a blog is that everyone understands that it starts out smaller and grows. So you don't have to be "done" before you start.

I'd suggest you...
Decide what your target market is looking for at the moment and start with that.
Choose your most profitable offering for that market and make a few blog posts in that category.
Keep the basics of SEO in mind as you get started and perfect it later.

Yep, as Linda suggested - find out what your target market is looking for: as in, the most hungry for, the greatest need at this moment - and fill that need or solve that problem. People will spend money when they have a problem or need, and you have a solution.

Determine the problem/need + You provide them the solution = profits for you.
