Not every day is a perfect day. Heck, most days are just average, typical days. These are the kind of days that eventually put one into a rut. I’ve been told that a rut is nothing more than a grave with the ends kicked out. That is no place to be. But once you find yourself there, what can you do?
Recently, I have been doing some examination and restructuring of my online business along with deciding what to do with my active niche websites. I now have eleven active websites, with some that have been online since 2009. The older niche sites have become pet projects of mine, but I have come to realize they are no longer practical in terms of their present form.
So I have decided to change three of my sites by ending two of them and restructuring the third site along with getting a registered domain for it (currently setup as a sub-domain). Then canceling the hosting service (which is the most expensive of the four I currently use) and setting up my revamped site with a new service.
Also to my dismay glowballwebnetwork.com, originally my company website, has become a platform for my personal journal as well. Unfortunately, some of my posts include my rants, which are really unprofessional of me and have no place here. Besides, it was not the intention of this website and those posts will be moved or removed from this site.
While not a perfect solution, I have decided to separate my personal online experiences to post on a personal blog with its own domain name (either michelsnook.com or michelsnook.me). Then restore this site back to what is was intended to be from the start, a platform for my other niche sites and a place to post useful tips about how to make an income with an online business.
Also, I have been working on putting together a better eCourse to offer for free on this site. An offer that I would regularly send to an email list who have opted in along with improving the sign-up forms. Unfortunately, I had lost focus on my current list even though I continue to pay for autoresponder services.
Of course, my main revenue focus will still be promoting affiliate products and services that I believe in and have used for myself or others I know. I feel that my best chance for success is becoming focused on getting one site working well, then utilizing what I learn from that to apply to the next site and the next one and so on. Even though it won’t be perfect, it will be better 🙂 .
