blogging disaster

The prospect of making money online is no longer my main priority. I had to affirm that conviction because, at the back of my mind, my real purpose for blogging is over-shadowed by my main desire to be useful and productive. And in layman's term, being useful and productive means... to be able to earn money.

I am getting impatient with myself lately. I had to admit that. I am getting so frustrated with my computing ability. I wish I had the talent and the skill to do a lot of things that others do to spice up my blog site. I wish I could figure it out how others make their blog site attractive and linkable. And I wish I could make my blog site useful and productive. You know what I mean.

But I really have to do something with myself now. My writing skill is taking the back seat because I am getting too overwhelmed with my desire to be a copy cat. I need to come up with something nice and more presentable than a journal like this. I need to get back to my senses and focus again.

Hi Ruthi,

Like anything else it takes trial and era. A certain amount of practice. When I started my first blog. I had no idea what I was doing. Like you, I got a little frustrated. My first aim was to make money, but that soon subsided. I then focused on what I like to do. For me, it's making people "feel good". That is my passion.

Once you figure out what your passion is, the words and subject matter will just flow out of you. As long as you are genuine in your posts, people will gravitate to you.

Start looking at other people's blogs to get ideas. You don't want to be a copy cat, but exploring will exercise your brain and new ideas will begin to pop up. The worst thing you can do is to stop. This will end the growth that you have already started.

Keep at it. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm excited because it involves my passion. Feel good and many blessings!

Hi Ruthie,
I'm new at this too and like you didn't know what avenue to travel. What I've learned is to not concentrate on aesthetics so much, that's the least. Blog about things you love and speak from the can never go wrong.
