Overwhelmed and highly discouraged with writing articlesHello everyone. I've built a new site, http://www.glad2bhome.com. It's a site that discusses the benefits of homeschooling over public schooling. The problem is pretty straight forward and common. I know that the article I wrote for this site is fine, but the content of the site will get stale and old pretty fast once it FINALLY reaches the search engines (don't get me started on that bit of anxiety). The homeschooling products I've affiliated with change fairly often, and that means that I would have to invest a lot of time keeping the site up to date. I'm afraid that won't give me any time to get another site made with a different type of product. Plus, if the same goes for that hypothetical other site, I'll soon be in over my head with sites I won't have time to update. I can't afford Elance because I'm a complete newbie with "unemployed" written all over me. Is there anything anyone can tell me that will help me? I'm afraid I might have picked the wrong approach in making this site, after looking at a few of Mark's sites. I'm afraid I've bitten off more than I can chew. Thanks for reading, and I hope someone can give me a little counsel. :oops:

And if you build a site, the worst case scenario is that it you learn. Sure you might not make any cash, but you will learn heaps by doing it.

Thats a great effort. For photos, istockphoto.com is about $2 a pic and sxc.hu is free although the quality isn't always the same.
And your site isn't banned or anything. If you remove the . at the end of .com, it comes up as white bar. So no problems there :)
Keep up the good work.
