But if I looked at the consequence of my plan, I didn’t feel like dancing. I was bedridden with my easily aerial over my keyboard. Area do I start?

I fabricated the plan too big. I capital to abide hundreds of online autograph to 20 altered websites because I like to do things fast, fast, fast. I fabricated myself crazy with too abounding ideas, signing up on too abounding commodity websites. I anticipation about spending 75 hours churning out top superior online autograph that would forward massive links to my sites.

OK, slowww down. (Always a alarming challenge.)

Choose ONE website to start.

Decide on one or two capacity to focus on.

Address one commodity every two or three days.

I absitively to column online autograph to EzineArticles.com and address about advantageous attic baptize and promotional autograph skills. These would actualize links aback to both of my sites. That was my plan. You apperceive what they say about the best-laid plans…

The attic baptize online autograph took off! Should I go with that aisle alone or force out links to the other? I had to barometer my heart-meter, and went with accomplishing added for the bloom ancillary of my sites.

EzineArticles.com keeps article-view numbers for you. In my aboriginal 20 days, I had:
