Monthly Review

Welcome to my January, 2017 monthly review post. This is where I get to tell you what I’ve been up to and what I have done over the preceding month that has worked well and what hasn’t. It is also my opportunity to share with you the why behind my decisions.


Starting in January, I have decided to focus on putting out higher quality content. To start, I spent a long time reviewing previous content looking at what could make it “better”.

But then what?


Are there certain elements of a website that are popular?

Do you need an About Page, Contact Us Page, ecommerce store.

Or maybe you should start with Social Media and try to build a following first!


What is most important?


To help answer this question.  I compiled 15 steps that I'll be taking to create this website.

Hopefully this gives you a little clarification on where you should start.


(Tip: even what I discuss here likely won't be exactly what I do.  Let your own situation dictate the next steps and don't worry too much about any...
