Note This Is A Very Valuable Exercise!

Summary

The project plan is largely about setting down in greater detail what you want to do, your Deliverables, and getting as close to reality as possible with what it will require to produce the appropriate standard of those deliverables and in what time scale.

One of the biggest and most beneficial things in doing even a brief project plan is having to examine Assumptions. Putting in just a little time at the start of a project on this, can save you huge amounts of time and hassle further down the line.

The biggest assumptions are frequently your estimations of how long the site might take you to build, or the other side of that same coin, over estimating how long you can invest to build it in an average week or other time frame. Another frequent delay can be in gathering your content together to go into the site, but much of that can be done in parallel with your site building and not necessarily stall it.
