For me, writing copy, coming up with ideas, and doing
most of the marketing doesn't bother me, but when it
comes do to certain parts (like looking at stats,
conversions, playing around with AdSense, etc.) drives

strengths. So if you're feeling a lot of resistance and
you're burning out quickly - that may be the reason!
For those who have been around the block for awhile,
it's a good idea to take a step back once in awhile and
evaluate where and who you are, along with your
