Why do you blog?
Here lately as a blogger I’m all tied up in pageviews. Why are they going down? How can I get them up? Ugh, it’s very frustrating. Just when you think you’ve found the magic key to pageviews it changes. It does this to me all the time. I’m tired of getting all worked up about my pageviews. I should be happy with 200 per day. I’m not. I’m not because one day I had 1600. I am, however, turning a new leaf. It doesn’t matter how many pageviews I get during the day. I will set out to write content that people want to read. Good content is more valuable then how many pageviews I get in a day. So today I vow to let go of the stress of trying to get my pageviews up and let the knowledge that I’m writing good content be my guide.
Are you blogging for pageviews or as a writing outlet?
I’m blogging because I love to write and share what I’ve learned. So the latest xyz company won’t want me. So what? I’m here to write in the comfort of my home and keep my kids clothed and fed. That’s what I’m doing too. You can do this too. How? By giving yourself permission to be who you are. You are the most valuable you that there is. And there is only one you. What makes you tick? Is it spending time with your kids? Cooking a great meal? Being there for your family? The plane would tell you to put your oxygen mask on first. You can’t help your family unless you’ve taken care of you. Do that today. Take care of you.
Let’s go back to who you used to be and blog about what’s important to normal people…not just bloggers!
What’s important to you? What do you want to write about? Who do you write for? Do you write to impress or do you write as an outlet? Do you write for yourself or do you fall into that category of trying to please others? Sometimes the ability to say no is the biggest gift you can give yourself. So say no sometimes. You need to put yourself first. You are the number one in your life. The others will get used to your saying no and will begin to do it themselves or find another sucker. Be the best you that you can be. Be proud of who you are! I’m…uh I mean…you are not your pageviews and neither am I! Why do you blog?
