Maintaining a website can be a time-consuming and learning intensive endeavor.
And if we are not very adapt at the whole process of web concept development and web design, the process will also become quite labor-intensive and, consequently very frustrating . . . almost to the point of just giving up and looking for a part-time job and somewhere else. It’s a bit refreshing that we have these portals like WordPress and other software to help with the back-end development. If not, I would dare say most if not many of us would just not even consider working a website simply because of lack of HTML programming know-how, or media manipulation, or any one of many other technical skills, not even to mention the need to have something to say or write, or any sense of how to promote our “thing.”
When I started Small Successes Online, I had spent some time with learning about online marketing and business building, and believe-you-me, I still haven’t gotten it just right, and am probably farther away from really “getting it” then I would care to imagine. And I’m not even going to talk about how much money I’ve “mis-allocated.” However, my earlier adventures did allow me to develop some skills; they weren’t too far away, since I spend a lot of time on my day job doing presentations, writing drafts and generally working with different types of information to try to make them somewhat understandable to my colleagues or others.
Now that I’ve gotten somewhat of a grasp of what I think I’m supposed to be doing with all this stuff, I hope to now start cleaning up this site and making it a bit more sensible.
Bear with me . . . this will definitely be a work in progress . . .
