Cat-Talk-101.com Is Live!!

Not only have I chosen the perfect domain name...I've chosen the perfect homepage template and written my homepage copy! Yes...my website dreams are really coming to life, for I have a live website!!!

Truly tonight I made great strides using the Verify It! tool from SBI! that allowed me to do the one time manual sitemap upload and verification of my site to Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask search engines.

When I had to do that for this blog, all on my own, it was so difficult, and seemed to take forever. Though it did take me a little while, tonight's work seemed so much easier with the step by step instructions and links from SBI!.

The next step for me is to build a footer, upload some libraries and learn to create a graphic. Oh, and finally get to write some content!

It's been a long time coming, but I'm on the path to success!

With SBI! I finally registered my perfect domain name

Yes it has been several months since my last update.

Yes it is taking me longer to achieve my goal of a passion driven website.

Yes I finally did make it through to Day 5 and I registered my domain name!!!!

My perfectly researched and niche rich name of: Cat-Talk-101.com


Thankfully I listened to the Action Guide from the very beginning and did not rush to register any of what I thought were the perfect domains. They were so not perfect that I can't remember what they were!

I cannot stress enough how much I believe in SBI! as the best education I could have found for learning to build a viable content driven website.

My work is far from over, mind you.

Currently I am reading an e-book on Web Design Success, however I have selected my template and it is live. Now don't get too excited...the template is live, but I've not built my homepage yet so...no content.

The template, I must say, is really cheerful!

The cool thing about the work on Day 4 is that I have a "blue print" of what will make up my website, complete with researched keywords...researched to the point that I know what words I need to write about first to have the highest chance of ranking highly for those words, thus, building traffic to the site.

Well, that's a really quick highlight of my progress...in a nutshell, so to speak.

Don't know when I'll update again, but just as a tortoise slowly plods along the path towards the finish line...so, I too, as well!

Until next time...
Annie
