A Lifestyle Blogger’s Dilemma: Start Over or Quit?
As you can see I’ve not given up yet.
Between not having a backing up plan for my paid website in place and getting sick, I lost all my blogging posts of 2016.(lesson learned the hard way.)
So here I am Starting Over Again. (Will 3 be the lucky number for me?)
Did I ever have thoughts of Quitting cross my mind?
Not really this Time.
My thoughts were more along the lines that if I am really going to Start Over yet Again. I was going to have to do some things differently, or I would find myself facing the same health issues again in two years.
If your thinking about Quitting, I have to ask you why did you start blogging in the first place?
When I decided to start Blogging in 2014, I started with realistic expectations.
Do you know that for most businesses it takes 5 yrs before they start seeing a positive cash flow?
Just because we are on the web, doesn’t always mean it will take less time.
Specially for a Lifestyle blogger.
How long have you been blogging now?
My first post was 9/5/14. I started with a free website with blogger.
Have you seen any kind of money coming in?
I figured I wouldn’t start seeing any kind of money coming in my first year, but when I was at a low point and was very much considering giving up(Quitting.) I made my 1st dollar.
Why Start Over instead of Quitting?
Nothing in life worth having comes easy. I look at every challenge I’ve faced with Blogging so far as an learning experience. Reading and doing Research is a big part of a blogger’s life, and many people get hung up wanting their posts to be Perfect, etc.
Life is full of Picture Perfect Moments and if you didn’t catch it with a camera it’s gone.
One of the reasons I choose a LifeStyle Blog instead of a Niched Blog is cause I wanted the freedom to write about anything that happens to be on my mind.
In Life we all ask ourselves that many times in a day. The answer to the question differs for everyone, so that the only answer I can give you is.
The Future. Whatever, Whenever, It’s Coming.
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, and more exeperienced.
