I’ve thought about throwing in the towel. Is this blog really worth investing in every week?
Who reads this blog anyways?
It’s too niche specific.
I’m not connecting with my audience.
My posts are too long, and probably no one reads them.
I’m shooting myself in the foot by not engaging in social media.
The above thoughts and a host of other questions and doubts fill my mind.
When I first heard about blogs, I thought, “What a silly thing to do! How trivial!” Little did I understand at that point the thought and care needed to write a blog post. To me even the word “blog” sounded ineloquent like a big “blob” of words splatted on a page like school cafeteria mashed potatoes glopped on a lunchroom tray.
So why did I start something that seemed silly to me at first? I saw the power of words and the ability to potentially help others. Helping others is really what this space is all about, not to mention the ways this blog has helped me to grow. Do I have all the answers? A hearty “no!” But I’m learning so much every day and am excited to share.
Am I really going to quit writing blog posts? At this point, the answer is no. That would be quitting when the going got tough. Am I seriously and prayerfully evaluating my blog and even my business? A resounding “yes!” is my answer.
What does this mean moving forward? I realize that most blog readers are very busy people. With that in mind,
1. My posts will be shorter and to the point.
2. Major ideas will be highlighted in some way for quick scanning.
This post is a bit raw as I have pulled back the veil covering my thoughts. I feel exposed and honestly am a bit scared.
