The Website: How to Tackle a Big Content Writing Project

An online devotional for writers

A Word From The Word

Today’s trouble is enough for today. (Matthew 6:34, NLT)

A Word For Writers

I launched my first big content writing project – my website – before content management systems like WordPress were around.

The Website: tackling a large content writing project. A devotional for writers based on Matt 6:34 with Word Wise at Nonprofit Copywriter #FreelanceWriting #ChristianWriting #WebWriting

In order to build the site, I needed to learn to use Dreamweaver software.

Which meant I had to take a course in Dreamweaver.

Which took six weeks of logging online, completing assignments, interacting with other students, and asking questions.

Once I learned to use Dreamweaver, I created the first pages of my website.

Which meant writing each page of content.

Which led to learning to load content.

At the outset, it was overwhelming content writing project that tempted me to get bogged down during all those weeks of learning software, writing my first pages, and loading content. I confess that yes, I got frustrated along the way. 

But there was reason I was able to hang on and finish it: I started to look at my website differently. I saw my website not as a big project, but a series of small tasks. 

Each task posed challenges for me. But I didn’t try to borrow trouble from the next task. I simply worked that one task and moved on to the next. 

Jesus said it well: “Today’s trouble (today’s task) is enough for today.”

These days, building a website is a whole lot easier than it was then. If you don’t have a website – or yours has not been updated in a loooong time – then the project can seem overwhelming.

But the principle remains the same: create a list of tasks you need to do to get it done.

Then work at those tasks one step at a time. 

A Wise Word

Write a website one step at a time.

A Word To Pray

Heavenly Father,

I confess I get overwhelmed when I face a large content writing project. Show me how to break down the project into smaller tasks. Help me avoid frustration and focus on completing just one task at a time.

In Jesus’s name I pray, Amen.
