This could not be more true for your blog or website!!
Most people who start a blog or website does not realize how much work goes into it before they really start working on the website.
In the beginning it is overwhelming and you spend hours and hours in front of your computer, trying to figure out what the basic things mean and just when you think you have that under control, there are many more things to learn.

If you can hang in there and really get your website going and perfect, just the way you like it, it will be allot easier to stick to a schedule, that is where this wonderful article of Rosalind Gardener's advice on how to plan your blog content delivery is very helpful. (This inspired me allot)

Planning your social media:
Promoting your website on Social Media can be overwhelming if you are on all the platforms. Try to maintain a regular posting schedule. You can for instance go on all the sites you are on quickly and promote the same article or picture quickly, but if you start going through all your friend's things, this can take allot of your time.
