I have been working my A$$ of for the past few months to get my website up and running? does it ever end or do i have to keep working until i close my eyes at the end of the road? Don't get me wrong i love what i am putting together but i didn't think it would be this would be so much work. I love it though? Do you have your own website and does the work ever end?

My daddy always said, "There's always one more thing to do". I realized he was right. Even when you think you've finished a special project, you find it's now time to start over again. There is always one of two things happening. There's one more thing to do, or it's time to start again, no matter what project; designing a business, cleaning house, raising children, washing your car, or just doing dishes. Just when you think you've come to the end of a thing, you find one more thing you can do - or - it's time to start doing it all again. It never ends momma. There might come times when you tell yourself you can take a break, but, you soon realize - to keep things in order and operating efficiently, maintainance has to be performed, even on the simplest of ideas. It's much like labor pains. We women are always experiencing labor pains of some kind. Whether it's starting a new business or raising our children to the best of our ability or doing simple chores like cleaning house. Labor pains are a part of our makeup. "There's always one more thing to do".

girl you are so right. it doesn't end, but it feels good doing it. I make sure i find joy in all of it. even when i have a block and i don't think i can do any more i find enough energy and a little bit more joy in what i am doing. one more then do is just means i am still here, still breathing, still living

LOL! it does not end once you are into it because if we are to know everything that has to be done on our website then it will take us so many months to put it all togwether. so, i would suggest that you just stick to the ones that you have and that works and know your objective, it might be too much for you to handle. moreover, it is more about updating our articles every now and then. i was on the same boat as you when i raised my hands up and said ,ok, that's it i don't want to do this anymore ,it's taking too much work and no rewards , until i checked on my blogs after a few months and i saw some people buying! and that propelled me to go at it again.no work is never done.

I know once it is all put together i am going to be ok. I have a feeling. I think because of course i want to be able to make money with it, my motivation is to teach others to make money online as well as being the Masters of their thoughts and lives.

we all have to go through a burn out process, we stop then we realize that it is easier the second time around because we are already familiar with some things and getting back the energy renewed . that is a very nice purpose, indeed.

I guess it will never end. Internet is all about fresh content. All the time at any time. So if you let the updates stop, the high likelihood of traffic being diverted else where will be there. So unless you plan to give up the site, you have to constantly make changes to your website to entice people to keep coming.

Website do better if they are frequently updated, plus there are always new things that you discover that will improve your site - No, your work is probably not done. I have two websites, and four blogs on the go and have more projects planned (I also work full time). When you run a website you are the designer, the editor and the marketing person, there is always something to do... I would be interested to look at your website.

I'm also planning on making my own website. I've just started looking up for all the information on how to make one because I want to do it all by myself. Having no technological education backgrounds, I haven't even started and I'm already stresses out. There are so many terms and systems I don't understand. Seeing your post, I'm thinking about quitting. There seems to be a lot more in store for me after I get my website done. Oh, dear...

I don't have my own website, but I am sure it takes lots of work to build one as I have tried building one in the past. It's a lot of work to keep it up to date as well. Best wishes as you continue to build your website.

Hi there momma, I think you are wonerful having your own website, I wouldn't know how to go about getting my own, I am sorry to say that I am a little backward when it comes to websites and blogs . All I can say is well done for getting as far as you have and just keep it up. Before you know it will be finished and you will be so proud of it! Thanks for sharing this thought with us!

I used to own my own website and the work never ended even when the site was up and ready to run. It is a neverending job when you run your own site. there is always upkeep to do on them and you also have to deal with alot of members who visit or join it also. My site didn't do very well so I sold it and do not think it is around anymore.

well sad to say no , not unless you have a wonderful retire plan , as long as there are new bills beingi printed out and money is out there no the work will never end , so with these bills and rising cost of gas , it sucks cause i think we feel trapped in this work force like we need gas to get to work ,and we need work to get money and we need money to keep our houses to lay our heads ...
