Title: Day 15 - The Real Reason I Started This Blog
Ok, I have a confession to make. The real reason I started this blog was because I was hoping it would help me with follow-thru.
I have been so called trying to succeed at Internet Marketing for the last 2-3 years. But have I really been trying? Not really! What I've really been doing is looking for an easy way to make money online. Yep, I'd try one thing for a while, half heartedly, and then give up for something that looked more promising. Sound familiar? I understand that this is quite common these days.
Well, I now have a dilemma. About a year ago I stopped advertising my computer repair business so I would have more time to work on my Internet Marketing. I guess my having to work was my excuse for not having the success I wanted in Internet Marketing. At first I still had plenty of business from my existing customer base and referrals. I even got a couple of new customers from organic traffic. But now, things are slow, and I have more free time than usual, and a lot less money.
But I used this free time for Internet Marketing, right? Well, not exactly. All I've really been doing is "studying". Going through or going over one program after another, without actually implementing what I've learned. I guess I was going over the programs looking for something I felt was worth my effort but didn't require TOO much effort. Well, I've yet to find what I was looking for because to this day I still have not made a dime in.....I never finished the post and I never "posted" it. So now my blog, which I had hoped to update everyday, has gone stale for over 10 days. I'm ashamed of that, but that's not what this post is about. This post is about getting some feedback, and clarity. What is the feeling you got as you read that post? Should I put that post on my blog? Has anybody else had symptoms of what I'm describing in that post?
I am really interested to hear from others, please.
PS: I've had a real epiphany since that post was attempted. What I've learn could be of help to anyone who can relate to the message told in that post.
