Stressed to the Max

Oh boy am I stressed out people! I really want to start my own business but the cost it would take to start one is just depressing!!

Many of you from Writing.Com know of my group/project "The Writer's Academy". Well I feel it is time to upgrade it to it's own site, so that it can really reach more writers and not be bogged down by the other wonderful groups on WDC.

However, in order to do that, I need to pay for a server (either buying one myself or renting space from another persons server), a business license (which requires tax people and lawyers!), and a bunch of other small things. I'll probably have to pay someone to help me set it up as I do not know ALL there is to know about website construction (esp when dealing with a site that requires people to log in and have a profile etc). I know a little, but not enough for me to just do it on my own.

Then take into account the time and energy it would take to build something like that. It took me two months to set it up on WDC - and I was able to create pages and forums with a snap. With my own site, I'd have to configure the forums first and enable this setting and that setting and THEN set up the forum itself for people to use it!

BUT -- make no mistake, I will do this! It's just a matter of when! I was hoping it would be by August of this year, but with the cost and time involved it might be longer. *sigh* Which is a bit disappointing but, better than never right? Yea, right.

Sorry to hear you are so stressed out. I must have missed the discussion on making the academy its own site but that's an interesting idea. Hope that you can make the dream come true with this one. Good luck.

I love your idea! It's too bad you're stressed out about it though. :( Soon, just soon, you'd have more than just WDC members! :D

Ahh, NICE idea, Harley! I think that's brilliant! But, um, after your website is all set up and everything, you're going to have to find new teachers.

*runs away before Harley throws something at her*

Love ya, babe!
