The Greatest Thing About the Internet Is....

It's always there...even when I'm not.

During the time between my last post here, and now, I've been learning to develop my website as well as building pages...that is, up until life stepped in and required my energy and attention.

Even though I have not worked on my website in over 3 weeks, the traffic has continued to find me. It's so encouraging to realize that building an online business will truly allow me to do what I can as I can.

Am I still a strong supporter of SBI? You bet! My only fear is seeing how much I do or do not remember when I start back to work on my new page....all of which should take place tomorrow.

For those wondering, I have found SBI to be easy to understand, easy to find the answers when I don't understand (in their forums) and proving to provide to me all that they have promised in the way of putting me out on the internet to the search engines. Their research tools did indeed guide me to developing keywords that I am already being found for...5 of them...actually, in 5 different word combos for similar words...I've only created 3 pages live, you see.

Anyway...really did not mean to be so long in posting...I can predict that my life will still be very demanding, but I'm truly determined to get back into my writing and developing web pages.

It takes 30 pages before I can have the option for monetizing available...I'm slow, but create total pages that I'm satisfied with...so if I can create 10 pages per month, I'll have the monetizing option available for the New Year...there you have it...I just set a goal...30 quality pages by December 31st 2010.

To date: 3 pages...goal: 7 pages by September 30...meaning...3 days per page? Truthfully that does not sound like something I can do...I really like to research and write, finding the perfect images for the point. Don't get me wrong, I am going to shoot for the moon and see how I do!

Will post back the last day of the month to state how many pages I've published.

30 pages before you get to monetize the site. Wow.

I noticed you are also on HubPages. I took the 30 day challeng there. Life intervened toward the end and I only got 22 hubs done. Some more quality than others.

I've been wondering things like how much and how long... this gives me some insight. Thanks!

Hi Karen,

Now, if you use me as your guide for how fast a site can develop...you will be way off track! I'm just like the SBI tortoise: SLOW!

What I will say in support of being slow and steadfast...I rarely spend much time "tweaking" my pages after they have been published and "approved" by me.

When reading the posts by various SBI'ers, you will see that some people publish a page a day...and not junk, but well crafted pages.

That's the beauty of it all...it's at our own pace!
