Putz, Piddle & Procrastinate with Passion
Are the three P's --putzing, piddling and procrastinating--giving you an anxiety attack? Well quit hyper-ventilating and use them to your advantage.
You can putz, piddle and procrastinate anytime you want if you do them with passion!
Putz all you want on articles you will be sending to e-zines or putting on your Web site because the more you putz with them, the better they'll be. This is called rewriting.
Piddle with your Web pages by changing the look. Do this often!
If you do, FTP the changes up to your ISP or hosting site. It causes the search engine robots to come crawling through your site more often. They look for the last time you updated pages. If they see nothing has changed, your site gets tossed into the black hole of never-never see again etherland.
Procrastinate reading all your e-mail. Only read and react to e-mail which must be answered immediately. You know the ones, they ask specific questions. The others are just fill-ins when you have a spare moment. And, if you find you do not have any spare moments, zap the hummers after a week.
Now what do you get if you putz, piddle and procrastinate to your heart's content?
Every small step you take when you use the three "P's" correctly has a cumulative effect on the Internet.
The article you putzed with is so good someone will notice and ask if they can use it in their e-zine. Now several others will read it in their e-zine and click over to your site.
Those people will e-mail you and ask if you would like to share links. And, from their links even more people will come to your site and read your article and request it for their e-zine. Just because you putzed with it before you put it on your site.
Piddling over a matter of months created the site which so impressed your visitors, they want to share links with you.
While procrastinating gave you so much time to answer all the e-mails from both your putzing and piddling, you'll wish you had more hours in the day for your passion.
