If you’ve been following my blog, you will notice that it’s been long I posted update about my niche site project. It’s not as if I didn’t want to after all, I promised you that I will be revealing everything I’m doing on that project here so that we can all learn from it.
But as you know in life, there are so many things we don’t have control of and such things can really come in between you and whatever project you’re embarking on some times.
The truth is that, I’ve not really done much on the niche site project since my last update and, this was due to some circumstances beyond my control. And, I must also tell you that I’ve not really been doing well, I’ve not been as productive as I planned but, I’m ready to make a change now.

There are always lots of distractions out there that always tries to take our eyes and mind off our focus and, that was what happened to me although, not exactly. I travelled last month as you know and, apart from the fact that I became sick that period which lasted for about 2 weeks and which also affected the project, I was also busy over there and, I was having connection issues throughout that one month and now, my studies is also another issue drawing me back.
It’s obvious that all these affected me in one way or the other, but I don’t want to start giving excuses now because, it will take me no where so, I blame myself for all that happened instead of running away from my mistakes.
However, I know that this niche site project is already taking more time than I expected but, it’s still good, I just don’t want to rush things at all thereby making mistakes so, I will take my time and, remember, this is the first time I’m doing a thing like this so, no cause for alarm :).

Even Pat made it clear on his own site that, its better to take time and ensure that everything works good instead of being faster than your shadow.
What I’ve Achieved So Far on This Niche Site Project
So far so good, I’ve done few things and, I’m happy for that. The major thing that really took me some time to get down is the logo creation.
The first place I went to was at Fiverr, I went there and started searching for some logo creation gigs of which I saw lots of them. I also sent a message to few of them and they replied but at a point, my friend Enstine advised me to post an update on Facebook about the logo creation.
I did that and lots of people contacted me offering to create one for me and after all said and done, a very close friend of mine Tamilola Finally created one for me free of charge, please help me and thank him. I’ve already registered and hosted the domain few weeks back so, that one apart.
The next thing I did successfully is content creation. I was able to find an awesome writer that created 10 articles for me at the rate of $2 per 500 words article and that’s about $20 in all, isn’t that awesome :)?
So, I’ve gotten 10 100% unique articles and I was able to publish one over the weekend. I will be publishing the remaining 9 ASAP.
I also plan on working with this writer for a long time if he continues to do well. Maybe in my future post, I will tell you how to find a writer too for such an amount. Although, my writer is planning on increasing the price to $3/article which I’m still discussing with him.
So, that’s it so far, I know I haven’t achieved much but, I’m happy with that for now.
What Next For The Niche Site Project?
My plan now is to upload more articles on the site at least, once I have up to 5 posts published, I will now start the promotion.
And, after publishing the 10 articles I have so far, I will watch and see what the result looks like and if its pleasant, I will start outsourcing more contents.
Within the week, I will add Google adsense to it and some materials that are related to the niche which i will pick from Amazon and Clickbank.
That’s all I can tell you for now until my next update.
Thanks friend and, happy new week to you all my valued readers, may this be a blessed week for all of us ……. Amen.
