We Don’t Sell Those

    Hi Ash,

    I wouldn’t say I’m worried I’ll “suck.” What I am concerned about is not getting important aspects of my upcoming blog “right” — crucial things, but technical, like SEO and “keyword density,”. I have no problem writing content, it’s the “optimizing” part that sucks. I can’t, for the life of me, fit optimized keywords into these “ideal” nooks and crannies of my site. And then I worry that I’ll be buried.

    ‘Course, it’s all cart-before-the-horse as of this point right now. What I want to know from an expert (that would be you) is, are nitpicky technical things like SEO and “targeting” (whatever that means) OK for me not to worry about, so that I can just concentrate on writing great articles and connecting with others?

    I’m only 15 and obviously don’t have any money to afford these million-dollar consultants who work with Microsoft and Google. I’m just a girl starting a blog about something I love, but the one thing I suck at is math, and SEO seems very “logical” and algebraic to me. Should I just forget about SEO and make the material my priority?
