It’s been so long since I updated here so I think it’s the right time to let you know that I’m closing this blog down. However, I have not quit blogging at all. Keep reading to find out more…
What I’ve Been Up To For The Last 7 Months
I can’t believe it’s been more than 7 months since I posted! I last posted back in October. By that time I was really getting things moving on my plans to go to Asia and live the “location independent” lifestyle for a while. I was actually an emotional wreck at the time – I’d never travelled much before, never been to Asia, and didn’t know whether I was making the right choice. I guess that’s why the blog got neglected.
I’m pleased to say I’ve now been away for almost 5 months. Although I am working far, far less than I was before I left, I am covering all expenses – and a bit extra – for both me and my partner (who is now working with me), and things are going well! I spent the first 2 months in Thailand, then went over to Laos for a month, and am now back in Thailand until probably July. After that? Who knows!
Why The End For This Blog?
I mentioned that I was finding it difficult to fit blogging around everything else I had going on, and the same was true since I came away. I want to make the most out of everything and that means I don’t want to be chained to my computer 24/7. At first, I was terrible at fitting my work in, and I barely had any time to write the content for my PLR membership sites, let alone do anything else.
I am achieving much more of a balance now – especially since I’ve started outsourcing a lot of writing (spending a lot of money on it too!) So why now am I shutting this site down?
For the last few months, I’ve been thinking about it a lot. The direction of my business has changed drastically. All my affiliate and Adsense earnings dropped massively in the last couple of Google updates, and I have zero passion for almost all of my niche sites now. I have let most domains expire or just deleted the sites from my hosting account altogether.
I’ve come to realise that I much prefer to run a business than to coast through as I had been. I feel I am much better at running a business and writing than I am at trying to figure out SEO (after all these years, I still haven’t managed to). So running a business and writing is what I am now focusing on.
It just felt like time for a change. I need a fresh start – a place to write about running my business, writing, and how that ties in to living the lifestyle I want to live. So I am closing Web Career Girl down, and starting a new site in the next couple of weeks.
This site is called “The Internet Dream” (it’s still under construction).
An Apology For Subscribers
I want to end this with an apology. If you signed up to my newsletter here, promising blog updates and a free PLR article every week, I only delivered on part of that deal and I am sorry! I will switch you over to the newsletter for my new blog, but I’ll email a warning first. What I talk about will be a little different, so I don’t blame you at all if you unsubscribe.
Thanks for reading this blog for so long, especially if you’re still reading – and know that I still read your blogs even though I don’t comment so much any more (I keep meaning to change that!)
