SEO Is A Bitch So I Run Off To Legoland To Blow Off Steam!

Yup, I said it, SEO is a bitch.  A big one at that!



It seems there’s only so much in your control and then it’s all up to the search engine Gods to rank you or not.

March has been a frustrating month for me because even with the increased amount of posts I write per week, the traffic doesn’t seem to reflect my increased efforts.

I guess I will see the effects of my increased writing more down the road because that’s how it works with blogging and I think so many people quit because it’s hard to know if you’re doing well or not when your traffic doesn’t rise with the large amount of time and effort you put into writing.



Even though I hear so many successful bloggers before me tell me this very same thing over and over again, I still have days like these where it’s still frustrating not seeing what you want to see on Google Analytics.

I guess I’m only human and these emotions will run through me regardless what I know is fact!

People who are making full time income from their blogs say that the time it takes for your blog to have increasing traffic that will make you consistent money is about 9 months to a year.

Some even take a year and a half.

But are you willing to blog 3 or 4 times a week consistently for a whole year to finally see that traffic come in and start finally seeing money come in from your blog?

That’s a HELL YES for me!

I will not quit.

Frustrated Guy At ComputerI will keep pushing forward with great content, great keywords, and use everything I have learned from Wealthy Affiliate to keep pursuing this dream so I can live my dream out in reality.

I want this badly.  I know that if I want it bad enough, I will do whatever it takes to keep it moving forward.

I know that if I keep going I will see results soon.  I’ve been building this site for six months now and six more months will really give me a better idea of what’s to come.

At one year, I should be able to see much better traffic and results of all the posts I’ve written.

This business is not for everyone, that’s for sure.

Only the strongest will survive, and one of those that survives will be me.

How about you?




I’m really glad I wrote this post and write about the frustrations I’ve been feeling.  I needed to get it out of my system so I can now go back to concentrating on what’s important: writing awesome content!

I think this is crucial no matter what endeavors you pursue in your life.

If you have negative thoughts or feeling down, it’s hard to move forward and be productive with all this weight on your shoulders.

To get rid of it, you can write about it like I’ve done, or you can just do something completely different that makes you happy so you can feel happy instead of letting the gloom weigh you down.


I did just that last week, I went to Legoland California with my family!

It’s nice to just forget about it and just enjoy time with your family.  It’s fun to just play and not be worrying all the time.

That’s the problem with adults, right?  Always worrying.

We need to be a kid again, and just play!

Having this little getaway made it easier to come back and concentrate on what’s important at hand, keep writing amazing content!

Sydney Symphony built out of Legos!

It was a short road trip with an itinerary like this:

  • 6 hour drive the first day and just visited family when we arrived in California.
  • Spent 2 whole days at Legoland – we were able to do everything in the park except the water section since it wasn’t that hot.
  • Last day, we went out for breakfast and then visited the ocean before we drove back home.

Every night, after Legoland, we had a nice dinner.  First night was sushi and second night was at a seafood restaurant.

It was tiring doing Legoland since I usually just sit all day to blog, but getting out to walk around all day and seeing so many cool things was fun.

Being with my family has also been fun, these quality times with my family is really priceless.  Our girls are growing up, almost 8 and 6 year olds, and soon they won’t want to hang out with their parents anymore.

So glad we were able to take them to Legoland, it was the first time for all of us!  Lol  So that was kind of neat too. 🙂




Okay, now that my bitching is done, I’m going to move forward and continue my journey.  If you’ve been following along with me, I so appreciate it and thanks for listening!

It’s not everyday I want to bitch because, really, I’m as blessed as they come as far as stay at home moms go.  I’m very lucky and grateful with all I have.

I hope you will continue with me on my journey as I will continue to show you things I’ve learn along the way and will hopefully one day report amazing results.

  1. Lol, I love this! When I saw “SEO is a bitch, so I went to Legoland” on Pinterest, I was tearing up I laughed so hard. Great post, keep up the great work!

    • Hi Jessica, That’s so awesome!! I’m glad you got a laugh about it! It’s like, you gotta just laugh about SEO, so thanks for reminding me of that. I know I can only do so much, it’s up to the search engines to rank me and trust my site. I know I will get there but this road sometimes can be frustrating, but getting some fun in there will help the way! 😉

      Thanks for your comment, so appreciate it!

  2. I used to be very happy to search out this site. I wished to thanks for your time for this wonderful read!! I definitely having fun with every little little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to take a look at new stuff you blog post.

  3. Hey, Grace,

    I know exactly how you feel. It’s like taking a stab in the dark and also not knowing whether your data structure is loveable by Google.

    I am glad you took a break and that you will continue. I thoroughly enjoyed your post.


    • Hi Michael, Thanks so much for your thoughts, and so glad you agree and enjoyed my post! 🙂

      We are all praying to the Google Gods! LOL. I hope my site traffic will catch up to the amount of work I’m doing…. hopefully sooner than later.

      Have a great week!

  4. Hi Grace,

    I think you’ve expressed very well what so many of us feel.

    I’m glad you were able to go to Legoland with your family. It looks like it was a fun time.

    • Thanks Sondra for your letting me know and glad you feel the same. 🙂 It was fun to get away for a little bit and not think about work. But alas, it was a short trip and gotta keep pushing on.

      Appreciate you visiting again!

  5. Hi Grace, I admire your perseverance.
    I am one of the quitters. I started back in 2008 and by 2015 I had spent over $15K if not more. I fell into the “shiny object syndrome” with new and better software and courses that promised more money in less time.

    Yes, I was greedy and got so in debt that I had to just get out there to make the money back outside from home.

    I found you in YouTube. Although it’s owned by Google it is definitely easier to rank videos than websites. So that’s a good way of bringing people to your website.

    I want people to not fall into the trap I fell into.
    * Stick to one course and have your goals clear. *Steer away from all the new products that are offered every single day.

    If I were to start all over again, I would join Wealthy Affiliate. Thank you for helping people have a good start with your advice.

    Love, Olga

    • Thanks for sharing your story Olga, and wow, I can’t believe all the money you spent! I can’t imagine and this stands as proof to everyone that those “SOS” type products don’t work.

      This is why I’m on a mission to spread the word of Wealthy Affiliate as it provides a sound business model and proven path to make it in this online world. It does take time and hard work but it will be worth it in the end!

      Thanks for finding me on YouTube, I know I have to get more videos out for that reason.

      I wish you all the best Olga and that you can still be able to build an online business the way that’s taught at Wealthy Affiliate, you still have that chance!

      Thank you for your advice and sharing your past experiences,
