Running a website is no easy task. Well, at least a
successful one does not drop from the sky. It takes
a tremendous amount of time, commitment and patience.
Luckily, it does not require deep pockets if you learn
what we will share with you here at webmastering.info.
Despite the hard work, the rewards of being a webmaster
more than offsets the pain. This is something which
you will realise in time if you have not already.
Choose a subject for your website which you truely have
an interest in, something which you keep up to date
on as a hobby. The internet has more surfers than anyone
can visualise. Unlike the 'real world', there is no
geographical boundaries. So what do this mean? This
means that any topic, however rare and seemingly unpopular,
have the potential to be a successful if you do a good
job. In point form, it translate to
Popular theme --> Relatively larger pool of surfers
and greater competition due to more websites on the
Less popular theme --> Relatively smaller pool of
surfers and less competition due to less webmasters
running similar website.
as said earlier, the internet is so big that even a
relatively smaller pool of surfers can translate to
a huge number of surfers in real numbers. And don't
forget that the internet is constantly growing!
So what do all this mean? It means that you should not
choose a topic based on how popular the theme, but on
how much you like the topic. Choose a topic that you
have a personal interest in, and you will find it all
that much painless to run your website. However, do
not forsake your theme just because it is a popular
theme. Yes, there will be more competition from other
webmasters, but if you have a personal interest in the
theme, why worry about competition? Ultimately, it is
your site, so do what is closest to your heart!
1. choose the theme of your site wisely. Don't just
leap into it.
2. Consider and weigh the following factors:
-- theme popularity
-- personal interest and motivation
