It has been several months since I have posted. Mostly because I initially started this journey to help financially support my mother who was ill and required full-time in home care. Sadly, my mother passed away in April. She was able to spend her last days at home and I was fortunate to be by her bedside during her last moments. It is so hard losing someone who has been there for you everyday of your life. Someone who loved you unconditionally, was always happy to see you and would do anything for you. (This is where I really wish I had a better knack for writing and had the ability to put into words how special my mother was to me and how much I miss her every day.) Needless to say it has been a difficult time and I just now have begun to think about whether I should drop my efforts here or continue to try and build this site. I’m still not sure what I plan to do but thought I need to at least write a quick post if I plan to keep my options open.
At this point, I feel like I need to go back through the Wealthy Affiliate training and start with lesson one to refresh my memory. I hope to decide within the next few weeks if I want to continue growing my site. I think to be successful, I will have to dedicate several hours a week and I’m not sure I have the time or dedication needed at this time.
As I have mentioned several times in this blog, if you are interested in making money by building your own online site, you need to know it will take time, persistence and hard work. Being a skilled writer is also a major plus. Part of me believes that if you are someone who enjoys writing and has a passion for a particular niche, being successful with Wealthy Affiliate will almost be easy for you. If you dislike writing (or struggle when putting thoughts to paper) it probably is not for you unless you are truly motivated as I was with helping to support my mother’s wish to remain home throughout her illness.
