It’s been a few months since I’ve started this site. I started it with absolutely no knowledge of how to do so. It hasn’t been all too easy for me, since I’m not exactly technically or digitally inclined, and I kind of jumped in with both feet. To be honest my site went live accidentally.
I told you, if you have been following along, that I would keep you updated on all of my wins and losses, up and downs, while starting this site, and forming it into a profitable career. So. I have gone and done it again. I preach and preach about doing your research before signing up for classes, but I failed to follow my own advice.
Why do you blog? What drove you to start? Are you still following that goal?
I only ask because I seem to have lost sight of mine. Once I started researching blogging, and monetizing blogs, I started concentrating on that too deeply. It’s so easy to do. You start thinking about all of the money you can make selling other people’s products, and you forget that you have your own.
It’s no secret that social media is pretty much completely foreign to me. I’ve avoided it all of these years and now I’m trying to master it to try to promote my business, and I just didn’t know what I didn’t know.
I don’t know what I expected. I really don’t. Well, I guess I kind of do. I thought I would be pumping out blog posts between chapters of my book, and submissions to short story contests. I thought nonprofits would be beating down my door for my copywriting services, and my humor and wisdom would have garnered me a large loyal following. Most of all, I thought that words would be falling from my head faster than any two people could type them.
