I’m struggling with this blog lately. One part of me just wants it to keep being what I started it as – a way to write and share thoughts and enjoy myself. The other part of me has started doing things to try to make money from blogging, but I haven’t had much success and am feeling discouraged. Honestly, the money making side is making the writing side not fun anymore. I think it’s because my efforts aren’t really focused, and I’m trying a lot of different things at the same time instead of building upon things. I’ve gotten into that all or nothing mentality that I’m so bad about.
Those of you who read this regularly – and not just because I’ve joined some kind of comment thread on a Facebook group – what do you enjoy reading about? Do you really care if I post every day, or would you rather see me skip a day instead of putting filler up? I know I set a goal to write every single day this year, but that’s starting to feel tedious and forced. Plus, my mindset behind it was if I publish every day, then that will increase my traffic, which will increase ad revenue, etc. It has sort of worked, but I’m rethinking a lot of things on here.
Blah, sorry if this sounds negative. I’m actually pretty happy right now. Maybe that’s why I’m looking at this with a more critical eye; now that I’ve got some big worries off of my plate, I can start looking at the little things in life again!
Hope everyone is having a great Sunday! We think Char is getting her two year molars in because sleep has been a mess lately. She and Will laid down for a nap a little while ago, and I’m hoping she’s more pleasant when she gets up!
