I Finished a Long and Boring Job on my Website

I spent most of today working on the website that went down early Friday morning. Most of the content for this website comes from my older version of the site that was not in WordPress. I have to put all the content that is still relevant back on now. The old site was 600 pages long. This one will be much shorter. So far, since June 2015 I have created 19 blog posts and 31 pages on this site. Today I had to edit and proofread the draft of the content on Shakespeare and his Works that was transferred from the editing program of my original site. It's basically a list of books with reviews and links to buy. All the links in the original went to my own selling site. Many are now out of print. I had to change all the links to affiliate links to Amazon and / or eBay, put in my own images, and do a lot of revising. I also had to do a lot of proofreading. The original writing was done years ago, and that's the fun part. What I did today was the boring part, and it took hours. It's worst when I get close to the end. I just want to finish and be done with it. I rebel against proofreading yet one more time, but I know it has to be done. Nothing feels better than hitting the publish button. This image is one I created as my featured image on the page I finished just after midnight. What jobs do you hate doing the most?

I don't mind doing dishes, except for waiting for the water to get hot. The kitchen faucets are farthest from the water heater. We also have a water shortage, so I have to collect the two quarts of water it takes to get the water hot to use somewhere else -- usually to flush toilets.
Hate might be too strong a word...but cleaning my sewing room after I've completed my current project....cleaning the kitchen after preparing and enjoying a meal with family and friends. Having said that I don't like these jobs....there is a huge sense if satisfaction looking at a spotless kitchen or a neat and organized sewing room. How can I reconcile these two feelings?

Revising, proofreading etc. things of that nature. I want to try my other free blog to a domain hosting website, on a different server of my other one. To see which I like best. I do plan to update, revise, and proof read everything before going live.
