Blogging is no easy task, I think every blogger who is serious about it, giving their all, and working their butts off like I do can attest to that. Right now I am just in one of those blogging ruts where no matter what I do it doesn’t seem to be enough or nothing is working out, coming in and it gets discouraging. I mean like really discouraging.
You start to wonder if your email is broken, if there is something you need to change. Really the last year has been tough one for me. After I moved to Florida things seemed to kinda fall by the wayside as if where I lived had so much to do with what I could or could not do, which made no sense to me. It’s like 90% of what was coming in stopped and it seemed to happen after I moved to Florida
My reach and readership is the same (and has even grown) since I moved from Arkansas so is it just coincidence, I am sure it is. The last few days have just been so tough and discouraging for me. Maybe my emotions are just on a rampage and tomorrow I will look at this in a new light but today I am sad. Today I am having a hard time encouraging myself. Today I want to know what I do is appreciated. Today I want to get over the feeling of just wanting to give up. I know, I know we all go through this, heck I have even cheered those on who have felt this same way.
Maybe once Greg gets my redesign done and I have a fresh look it will spark encouragement under my tush, after all a new design can be like a breath of fresh air. Today though I am in a blogging rut and my emotions tell me to give up but my heart says to keep going. So pushing through is what I have to do but doing it alone isn’t an option, I just need the support of sweet friends and family. Sometimes that’s just the push you need. Now I am going to turn on KLOVE and spend some time with God, I think a session with the one who has brought me through so much is just what is needed.
*Snicker, on a side note as I am getting ready to hit publish my son turns Cars on and the line I hear Doc say “Get Back Out There”. Almost like a little nudge to keep going.
