Medlock Digital is all about building and running a website/blog publishing business.
As of April 2022, I have a total of seven websites, including this one, in my portfolio. While I don’t want to give away all of the domains, I can tell you the niches they’re in:
- Home improvements and DIY
- Personal finance/lifestyle (UK market)
- Building websites and blogs (the domain for this one is not a secret – Go Build A Website)
- Garden and gardening
I also have a number of domains that may or may not one day become fully-fledged websites.
I should point out at this stage that I’m not new to this game. I published my first site in 2001 and I’ve been running my own business since 2007. However, the sites I owned back in the day got hit by the notorious Penguin and Panda updates, which started around 2012.
Since that time, I’ve taken on various client projects (building websites, SEO, WordPress support and training etc) but always wanted to get away from that kind of work and stick to running websites.
In September 2021, I decided to stop looking for and doing client work. I also started a part-time driving job to get away from the screen for three days a week. I thought this would bring in a steady and reliable income and allow me to focus on growing the websites.
However, the websites remained static as I’d completely lost my mojo.
I hardly touched them between September 2021 and April 2022.
But now my interest in the sites is returning and I want to blog about the progress I make building up this business once again. This is where Medlock Digital comes in.
