Start a Website that Draws Traffic
If you have been surfing on how to start a website for a business, you probably know by now that having an internet access and a know-how of designing a web page does not automatically make one a mass communicator. If my site is not reachable by the search engine, even if I had the best resource, made the most compelling statement about honey as an intelligent food, I am communicating to none. Site Build It!, a website design cum hosting cum marketing system, has provided me with a platform that allows me to systematically start a website and effectively reach out to a global audience and pointed to me the different strategies on how to drive traffic to my site 24/7 (yes even when I am sleeping)!
Being able to start a website on honey wins hands-down against having to talk face-to-face and one-on-one and rave about the golden liquid at the wrong time and at the wrong place! I mean, who expects others to be thinking about honey or what sweetener to use all the time right? And having an existence in a country where there is hardly any bee around, where beekeeping is illegal (or I should say it's a totally remote and unimaginable occupation or hobby) makes talking to people about bees and honey even harder. Here, the hum of a bee colony can generate much genuine hysteria and panic attack, fear-mongering reports that miscast bees as being aggressive and dangerous are not helpful in allaying the public's disabling fear of these pollinators, and a swarm or beehive once sighted is immediately removed and destroyed by the pest control specialists. (Yes, seriously, I mean people from the PEST control company) I'm not sure if the kids in our schools actually learn beyond the fact that honeybees are insects and insects are typically marked by a head, six legs, and a thorax, and sometimes I wonder if they ever suspect that honey is not manufactured in the factory.
The Site Build It! Way to Start a Website
I describe my experience with Site Build It! as "slow but steady like the tortoise", which is Site Build It!'s most famous motto and deeply-held principle in web living. So, if you cannot relish the idea of "slowness"
For those who are conversant in the HTML language, web design and publishing may be a piece of cake, but not in my case, at least not when I first had to start a website. Nevertheless I realised with Site Build It!, I didn't have to be a techno freak to do it. In the last few years, I've learnt from scratch how to start a website - what search engines are about, how to choose a domain name, the significance of keywords demands and supplies, how to generate traffic when you start a website, Search Engine Optimisation techniques, site monetization, blogging for marketing, writing ebooks, HTML language, in-bound links, ezines and directories submissions, producing user-generated contents, leveraging on social media, creating backlinks, and even video and photo-editing. I cannot imagine how painful life would be to work outside of the Site Build It! system, with no Site Build It!'s reliable and assuring support on step-by-step building tools to start a website, web design templates, newsletter system, forms and surveys templates, and traffic statistics.
As they always say, "the first steps are the hardest." When I first started out five years ago, it was a dread exchanging links with other sites. Many requests went unanswered. They said my site was too new and had too little traffic, so exchanging links would not be

Thank You Site Build It!
Two years ago, a web owner fell off his chair (well, I didn't actually see that in our virtual exchange but at least his tone of writing was enough to let me run my own imagination) and told me in a forum that a few thousands of unique visitors daily for a
I am Pursuing My Dream, So Can You!
I dream that one day I would not be just a lover of honey but a keeper of bees. I will be out there donned in a bee suit, peeking into the hives to discover the secret life of the bees. After all I have enjoyed a liquid as good as gold, how can I be not grateful to its giver - the honeybees, the silent hero in pollinating over 75% of our flowering plants and crops while enjoying my chocolate, coffee, tea, almonds, apples, and cherries, how can I not salute these pollinators and remember that without them, much of the food that we lay on the table every meal would cease to exist and we would be living on a diet akin to "bread and water."
"Concerning the generation of animals akin to them, as hornets and wasps, the facts in all cases are similar to a certain extent, but are devoid of the extraordinary features which characterize bees; this we should expect, for they have nothing divine about them as the bees have."
~ Aristotle 384 BC - 322 BC
My friendship with beekeepers in the virtual world has opened my eyes to see the amazing work of the honey bees in the real world. I dream that one day my country would facilitate designated vicinities in the keeping of bees (just like how New York has again allowed urban beekeeping. How do they do it, how does Hong Kong do it? In fact we have the marvellous advantage of weather; the combs will be flowing and dripping with honey all year round). As we live in a society marked by ultimate modernisation, the dire need to build the strongest economy, the best education system, the most intelligent and scholarly students, most talented and productive workforce, most advanced technologies, could we not slow down and stop to ponder how we can move one step closer to Mother Nature and stop to exploit every single bit of land for commercial development? I dream that one day the blooms of the rainforest and the tropical blossoms of lemon, coffee and rambutan will be visited by the buzzing creatures and that we would find a little space to embrace what has been given to us from the beginning of times, muse and revel in the simple pleasures of interacting with the ecosystem, let out a smile of gratitude for the soil we step on, the scent of the flowers we breathe in, the little crawlies we see treading on your child's hand, and of course, marvel at the tiny insects that have visited thousands of flowers for nectar to just give us each glob of the super food.

Jeffrey Archer says "while there may not be a book in every one of us, there is so often a damned good short story". And this could be a lifestyle, hobby, a cause; a mission, a belief, a passion, or even a cure that you feel others should also know or even try it. With the help of Site Build it!, not only was I only able to start a website but am now making a living out my passion in the web and I believe with Site Build It!, you can too!
