Technical Problems Busy Moms Must Overcome

Technical problems can be a real drain on your motivation to get the things you enjoy most done.

I want to apologize for the delay on this week’s post. I found myself battling some technical issues on my WordPress site I am quickly Is the techie stuff driving you crazy?learning that what my mentor Carol Amato is talking about I should heed. Carol highly encourages to outsource such tasks.

It took me so long this week to figure things out that things on the technical end I was simply not able to do if I expected to take action on my mentor’s advice. I even lost track time and found myself days off schedule on creating content to better serve you.

Saving a Dollar Can Cost You Lots of Time

Have you ever found that in trying to save a buck on doing-it-yourself that you waste valuable time that would otherwise be used in something more productive and more exciting for you to do?

I love writing and researching products and services that can be a wonderful help to busy moms. I enjoy writing on helps and life tips but I cannot get much writing down if I am bogged down with technical issues.

Down and Personal

So in my post here I simply want to get down and personal to apologize and encourage you to do your best at keeping your main focus on more productive task and find ways to outsource the more technical aspects to someone who can do it in just a few clicks.

By the way it does not have to cost you and arm and a leg sort to speak. You can find people will help you get over a technical issue for just five bucks.

For example I discovered it would be wise to have a child theme for your WordPress. Sounds weird to this mom that WordPress needs a child theme but needless to say, I plan to outsource that job to someone who know what in the world to do rather than spending my time trying to figure it out.

Stay Focused

Now I am not going to knock you for being curious and wanting to learn. I enjoy learning how things work but I am getting to a point in my online business that I do not have time for things like that and I need to concentrate on the more serious tasks such as completing my new book to publish on kindle.

You since I am being down and personal I also want to caution you to make sure that in trying to figure something out it is just not excuse to do the most important tasks. I am sharing this from my own mishap of chasing the, oh, so nice and shiny object.

Now it is your turn to get yourself on track. By the way post on the comment below as to the next thing you plan to do to get your business on track or on to the next level.

To your Success, Ann Moore (Mom Internet)

    Hi Ann,

    Yes I couldn’t agree more– technical problems can be extremely frustrating and cause your online activity to come to a screeching halt, causing you to have to play catch-up which is never fun for a busy mom, or anyone else for that matter.

    Your subheading is very true, saving a dollar can cost you lots of time which is worth much more than you saved monetarily.

    If something happens to my Internet connection or some other thing prevents me from doing my work online, I can always update the different calendars I use to stay organized, pick up the book that I’m reading continue with that, or use my phone in order to respond to messages and email.

    Backup plans are essential in order to stay focused and productive.

    I really enjoy learning new things too and if it’s something that I will be using on a continual basis, I think it’s wise to learn it first myself (If at all possible and within reason) and then hand it off to someone to do for me – that way I know what’s involved and can prevent myself from getting ripped off on the outsourcing gig.

    If it’s not practical to learn it myself, I definitely use word of mouth recommendations from people I trust so as not to get taken advantage of.

    I’m working on blogger outreach at this time, and ramping up my relationship marketing. ;-)

    Thanks for the thought-inspiring content!

    Have a blessed day.

      You are welcome and thank you so much for your insight. I agree with you in learning things for yourself. It will certainly help you from being ripped off.

      It may take a little time and even some money to purchase a book or training course but in the long run it will pay for itself. Protecting you from scammers.

      Excellent on working on blogger outreach. I am not far from really getting momentum in that area myself. A few years ago before I started my own blog I would go to sites and comment. I met some really neat people.

      Actually, going and commenting on other blogs is what motivated me to have my own blog. Getting involved with other bloggers is a real blessing. I thank you for dropping and visiting me :)

      To your success,
