Website Template Reviews are numerous, but here is one that tells you the whole truth, from passion to success.
I first began my SBI site in 2005, thinking it would be a excellent way for me to supplement my income in my retirement, and for several years my site grew in number of visitors and income, just like the plan said it would.
But in 2011, Google adjusted their search algorithm in what was known as the Panda and Penguin updates. Initially, those adjustments were very helpful for traffic to my website, but one day traffic just plummeted and remained low.
I was very disappointed, having built around 600 pages of content and comments, and the task of redoing the website was daunting, to say the least. I did not see anyway that I could handle the size of the website, and the problems with poor links and navigation, by myself.
So I abandoned Ask Mike The Counselor2. The site continued to pay for itself and I really could not bear to let it go, so I kept it up, but I did no work on it.
Then came the recession, and some very profound personal changes, a divorce and my retirement, and the closing of my counseling practice.
So, for several years, this site sat abandoned, until just recently.
I did update my social media accounts, especially Linkedin. I like to send out birthday wishes to followers, and congratulations to those with work anniversaries, but I seldom, seldom paid attention to their responses.
However, not long ago, for some reason, one of those responses did catch my eye, and I opened it.
The note was from Jill Manzioni, who has extensive experience with Solo Build It websites...so I decided to email her, curious about what she thought about my website, and I was also very curious about the synchronicity. Why did I open her email and ignore thousands of others?
Well, long story short, Jill agreed to work on my site, and the results so far are nothing short of amazing to me...she is like a tornado of activity, and does not appear to be overwhelmed by the detail work of resurrecting and dormant dinosaur of a website.
She is also slowly bringing me up to speed on the new tools Solo Build It has incorporated since my backing away from my site.
Somehow she seems to recognize when I am overwhelmed and let me be while she continues the underground work required.

I know it has awhile since I last posted, and I did not do so well through the holidays, indulging my sugar appetite regularly. I even gained a little weight, but I am back in the saddle now, with a n…

Did you know that keto diets deliver a high amount of nutrition per calorie? I know that carbs, especially packaged carbs, offer very little in the way of nutritional value. I also did not know that m…
