I go on on a daily emotional up and down roller coaster, and it's draining. Sometimes it's a fight to keep going, but unlike other sites I've done, I have a lot of mone invested. I've been in 'downs' before and caved, but I just know I have to stick with it. My site is 5-6 months old, so it's still early. It's mostly a white hat site. Some days I'll get some really good white hat links and excited for the future, other days it seems like I'm spinning my tires. Some weeks I get a decent amount of traffic, but no sales. A journalist from a top three newspaper contacted me and tells me he wants to do write about my product and is 'looking forward to it', but not until next week. Well that was a month ago. I followed up a week later, and he doesn't even reply. Followed up again a few days ago, and no reply. Someone else tells me they're going to give me a link, and they never do. I'm slowly making progress, but like I said some days it seems like I'm spinning my wheels. I'm busting my ass building a bunch of high quality white hat links, trying to crack the top ten, and yet you have authority sites with zero links to their pages filling the top ten. For the first time in 15+ years, I went back to a regular job. But as I did that I got the urge to start a new online business. So for the last six months I've been doing both. I'll make $120k+ at my job next year, sometimes I ask myself why do I bother, why don't I just take that, and do fuck all on my off days, relax and enjoy life. The job is 'okay'. I don't hate it, don't love it. Can't imagine working there for the next 25 years, as I can't imagine myself anywhere for the next 25 years. But another great thing about the job is that I'll have a $50k/year pension when I retire. Obviously I'd like to make 5x that online, but sometimes it just seems like everything is against you. I don't know, just needed to rant. I'm sure there are many here that have wanted to give up many times.
