Blogging is dead! If you’ve ever dipped your toe into blogging, there’s no doubt you’ve come across that notion before. The idea that blogging is a waste of time or that becoming a professional blogger is impossible…well I’m here to show you that quite the opposite is in fact truth.
Eat Dream Blog
Many of us have dreams that we think will forever remain just that – dreams…
What we could do “if only…”
If only we had… more time, more money, more space, more support….
It’s hard to put it all out there. Really hard. To try and make a go of it, especially in today’s world where you don’t have to be a celebrity to have your messiness or mistakes exposed.
But I’m trying. Because a life where I only get to spend 35 hours a week with my children while I spend 45+ at work doesn’t sound like much of a life to me.
Before I started this adventure, I had no idea just how much work went into running a successful blog. All I have to is write and post, right? Build it and they will come?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy with my stats thus far. It may not seem like much compared to other sites out there, but in the 18 days since I’ve launched, I’ve had 641 visitors. And I’m so grateful for each and every one of you.
I love it, though. And that really is all that matters in the end. I wish I had more time to work on it, but I make do. I come up with post ideas while I’m driving to work, I promote via social media while I nurse my baby to sleep, and I dream about the day this blog will set me free financially. Because it will happen. Someday.
Until then, I shall continue writing for the sake of writing and I hope you shall continue enjoying what I have to say (or at least some of it). Make sure you subscribe to my postings by entering your e-mail in the upper right hand corner of my page (or at the bottom if you’re on mobile)!
What are some of your dreams? I’d love to hear about them!
UPDATE: It’s been TWO YEARS since I wrote this post (whaaaaa…?!) and I’m happy to say *I DID IT*!!!!! Check out this post on how a cat convinced me to quit my job to become a professional blogger!
