If you have been reading my previous posts in this series you will know I am doing a week-long challenge of being intentional about my decisions. You can read Day 1 or Day 2 or Day 3 if you missed one of the previous posts.
Today has been a bit on the rough side for me. I have been blogging for almost a year now. I have learned a lot over the year, about blogging, social media, and myself.
Blogging started out as a form of therapy for me. Putting my thoughts out there into the universe, not necessarily to get a response.
But, I couldn’t leave it there. I wanted to become a professional blogger, have people read my blog and make money.
A lot of time, effort, and money has been put into this blog. Honestly, if I put all of that time, money, and effort into going on the 2017 NKOTB cruise, I probably could have enough money to go (and for those of you who don’t know, they’re expensive).
I have spent this week being intentional about my decisions. I feel like the big decision of the week is should I say yes to blogging?
Blogging is a passion and I think I would be lost without the writing, courses, and learning that comes with it.
But, I really don’t feel like I have come very far. This blog has made all of 75 cents. There is 20 subscribers to my blog, two of which are email addresses that I added to test things out.
Part of the time I feel like I don’t have anything to say that people want to read.
Another part of me wonders if I have tried to hard to do what you are supposed to do and not put my own voice on the blog.
I’m not giving up blogging, at least for right now, however, it really has made me think things over a lot!
