Patience

“Sorry, nothing to report.” Nobody who owns a website ever wants to see that on their activity log. Luckily it isn’t realkylemilligan.com, but an anonymous niche website I have been building.

I should be promoting Redheads and Bedspreads, but I’m not. I’m a creator at heart. I don’t want to talk about shit that’s done I want to talk about shit I’m doing. The future. Potential. I’ve never been one to rest on my laurels. Redheads and Bedspreads is a pretty damn good book so go buy it.

Now if someone would visit my other site.

The other site was supposed to be this super clever idea on my part. Granted its only about two weeks old, its lack of traffic is pissing me off. I’ve targeted an audience and promoted it on social platforms, where is the traffic? I probably need more content.

I’ve wanted to go to my Granny’s house for a little over a week but I can’t. I can’t take a break from all this shit I have to accomplish. All this money I have to chase. But I keep putting off Granny’s house and not seeing results. Just “Sorry, nothing to report.”

You ever feel like you’re just spinning your wheels?

I just broke the fourth wall. I can do that because this is my site, so I am king. I can do whatever I want.

Except when I can’t.

Not without first checking Google Keyword Planner then researching to see if that keyword is highly competitive because nobody will ever see my post on 223rd page of google. After I do all that research, spend all that time, nail down that perfect needle in the keyword haystack, then I can post something. That’s just insult to injury when I wake up the next day to a big fat, “Sorry, nothing to report.”

Book sales are slow. Slow is better than my niche site though. Maybe if I didn’t bury myself so deep in a site that isn’t bearing any fruit then I could spend more time on promotion. I’d really like to just have enough time to go to Granny’s.
