    I have one that is all but complete but I am having the darnedest time finishing it. All that is left is to cut and past keywords into about 80 pages. But, every time I start to do it, I always find some excuse to get distracted or do other things. Ever just not want to finish one or choke on it for no particular reason? I am even trying to make a deal with myself to just do 10 pages every now and then and break it up with other stuff.

    Sounds like you got 'writer's block'

    Read a book or watch a movie or do anything else but building websites and come back to it in a day or two, it might work then.

    You can tell when i am working on a site I don't feel like finishing, I post on forums more.

    This is why I normally work on multiple sites at one time, break it up when I get stuck. But somedays, like today, I hate them all.

    I've been pushing back an almost finished Formula 1 racing content site for months, and then when it was almost finished.. BAMMM HD crash and all of it down the drain.. I had backups of everything except that

    I just sent two new children out into the world.

    I sometimes get stuck, but I'm on a roll at the moment.

    My biggest problem right now is adding submissions to a Member Pics area ...wish I had gone w/ a script when I started the site a few years ago. Now it would be impossible for me to incorporate those few thousand pics into a new gallery. Any suggestions?

    SSanf,

    I have that happen to me all the time, my husband’s analysis of the situation.

    1. Means I will not be able to dedicate time to work on a site I like which keeps me from finishing it.

    2. Means if I finish the site I have to do more work on something else, of course causing procrastination.

    Best cure for me, change all the furniture around, clean all the carpets, and I AM JUST NOW finished varnishing all the hard wood floors again! I am now mad that I cannot find time to work... I am ready to get back to work and finish all the junk I am constantly putting on hold.

    Yep, been there. Was working on a store for Sierra Trading Post a few months ago and just couldn't seem to get motivated on that store. I would do a little and then stray to other tasks. It seemed I had to force myself to finish as I hate to have unfinished work around.

    Well, I finished the last page on November 14. It was my 2nd best producer for December! Thinking now the rule should be "Do what I don't want to do, first" Keep at it.

    Ssanf, why don't you just publish it as is, then add the keywords when you are better able to get on with it.

    I often throw up websites that aren't quite finished, but are presentable, then finish them later, between working on other things

    I just finished having to redo the bathroom. If you know how to do floors, that may be the next chore I am going to be burdened with. I will take any or all free offers to do it for me LOL

    Floors are a sure cure for not doing what needs to be done. I am so sick of doing floors; it will be another 10 years I hope before I even think about it again.

    Floors are a killer.

    **TIP: found this new stuff

    Miniwax Super Fast Drying Polyurethane for Floors professional formula. Only $25 and if you put the coats on before 12 hours has passed NO SANDING REQUIRED! Love that stuff.

    Definitely!

    Easy, just 1) put them all into a folder 2) have Photoshop 7 make a gallery of them. It'll do it in about 2 clicks, presto! With navigation included. If you don't want to pony up for the Photoshop (pricey!) d/l a trial and you can use it for 30 days.

    Because when I do keywords, I do the title, heading and subheading and assorted tags all at the same time. They are all cut from the same bolt of cloth for maximum SEO.

    I use a general place holder in the HTML and a search and replace puts them all in at the same time.

    Some pages require a minor tweak but it really cuts down the w*rk.
