This post is dedicated to all bloggers: old and especially the new ones out there with grand dreams of fame and fortune through blogging, all budding creative people out there with little creative projects such as this little online space of mine…but hey, aren’t all people born to be creative? So heck yeah, this post is dedicated to all you people!
I am currently going through what I call the stumbling blog and somehow I can’t seem to get to wrap my head around it, being stuck in my independent problem solving ways.
#1 Stumble blog: Getting back into the blogging groove
My schedule’s changed drastically since last month and I must admit I have been struggling to juggle everything I’ve been doing in the sanest way possible: sleep, work, house chores, exercise, social events (the few of them lined up), quality time with The Husband and blogging. I really, really do want to have my work-life balance cake and eat it heartily.
#2 Stumble blog: Getting past my writer’s doubt
The problem with being exposed to a lot of blogs and reading materials is that it creates confusion for me as I writer. I know, I know I should pick up best practices somehow and infuse it with my own writing style and voice (if there is such), but then I start to doubt my writing capabilities and simply become immobilized in my doubts.
I am seriously thinking of getting myself a writing coach and / or buddy to help me through this. Someone good and someone who won’t break the bank.
#3 Stumble blog: Getting used to an audience
#4 Stumble blog: Getting results
I strongly feel that I am not getting the results that I envision for myself. I don’t go through my blog’s numbers often, but I do value the comments I see in posts. At least I know that I am not on monologue mode every time. Do I want to get famous? Hmmm…not really. Do I want to get rich? Hmm…not really. Do I want to be a food writer? Definitely. But I don’t think I am near where I want myself to be.
Argh. Hard to be me, right? Anyone out there going through the same stumbling blogs as I am? Don’t you get to see the light SOMEHOW when you are down in the dumps?
That’s what happened to me when I faced through a difficult life challenge in Dubai. I am glad I had somebody like Mommy Tala, ex-retreat roommate and life coach extraordinaire. She was there to hold my hand and to help me process all the crazy million and one thoughts in my head. I am a bit shy to share my sort of sob story here, which is totally non-food, so you can take a read through it on Mommy T’s blog in a three-part guest post series: here, here and here.
