    How many sites are you operating....
    ....at this time?

    This is an overly simple question, I know...I was just hoping to get a good dialogue started on workflow and pace.

    I am still trying to come to grips with the learning curve before I actually launch (measure twice, cut once). I am have two specific niches in mind, and a third, general blog site to maybe warm up on. I want to get started on all three, but I afraid I will end up putting a ton of work into them, only to find they have to be redone completely because I didn't take enough time to get to a competent level of proficiency with as much of the different aspects of AM as I could have.....

    Over 200 less than two years ago!

    Under a dozen now.

    Do have a new, and large, site opening this week...

    Do it!

    We totally gutted a huge amount of sites two years ago. Dropped most and slowly folded a handful of others into one big site - as they were 'related'. All part of a major branding push. In fact, it's still ongoing.

    Since 1998 we have had to change with the industry, change with the economy, change, change, change - the one constant.

    Do it - but welcome change...

    I've been watching your posts for the last month or two and before you become me, I just want to give you a little advice from a guy whose been around, left, come back, had dozens and dozens of active sites, had one active site. had no active sites and now is somewhere in the middle.

    You will never have your ducks in a row. They are ducks, that is not what they do. They will be in a row-ish, but that will be for a brief, frustratingly fleeting moment. You can lose a lot of time chasing the little bastards.

    You will never know everything. You are not my wife.

    Cut a pie, you'll could cut it wrong but who cares it's pie. Eat.
    Cut a 2x4, you could cut it wrong but who cares, get a another 2x4, some glue or some nails.
    Cut an artery, you're done, don't do that.

    A website is more correctable than all the above, you can do something wrong and fix it in seconds, minutes, hours or days, but you can fix it. That is, if you've built it.

    You will never make a dime. Planning your site.

    Find something you are interested in, then:

    Research it.
    Build unique content around it or create something to make it valuable to your visitors.
    Promote it.
    Monetize it.
    Love it.
    Hate it.
    Give up on it.
    Go back to it.
    Learn from doing it.
    Repeat.

    Should add, I say all the above with love, support and humor
    ================================================================
    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!
    ================================================================

    It's impossible to make the ducks dance like the 'G'oose. The 'G'oose will eventually figure out they are ducks and put them in a sandbox, forever. Better get a hamster and grow it into a freaking bear!

    I have about 50 domain names and about 20 sites, and based on the profit it's just a hobby.

    You are my new best friend.

    An immediate and concise answer, delivered with equal amounts wisdom and humor, and presented in an entertainingly readable display of writing skill. I hope my own blogs can be so worthy.

    This is why I love this site.
