I know basically no one gives a flying f*ck about me or my blogs. I know I’ve made a bunch of blogs that hardly anyone will ever notice. I’m ok with that. I’m blogging for me, as an outlet for myself. I started so many different blogs because, well, I have a ton of shit to say, on tons of different topics, and one blog just won’t hold it all together. Two blogs won’t even hold it all together. I’m a passionate person, with a hurricane of a personality. I need an outlet – lots of them.
So basically, that’s what I’m doing. That’s what I’ve always done, and it’s what I’ll always do.
I’ve been blogging since before I hit my teen years. When I was younger, I ran a few blogs, and absolutely loved it. I didn’t care about followers or page views, or anything else that people seem to talk about all the time now. SEO meant nothing – blogging was just an outlet, and I loved to write.
My blogs evolved into a magazine, and I had that going for a year, until I got married. Once we were ready to start our life together, I put blogging and writing on hold. I had the desire to start it up again constantly, and couldn’t wait until I could.
Several years passed until I was able to get back into it again, and I started blogging with a Book Blog. That, unfortunately, got me into the other parts of blogging I never cared about – page views, follower counts, SEO, etc. For that blog, that’s fine. I need to keep that up, to keep up book promotions, and the other obligations I’ve agreed to, and don’t mind doing.
I still need my outlets though. So, I started a blog. Then another. Then a company to umbrella a bunch of different blogs and sites – one I hope to eventually turn into another magazine of sorts. Then I started some other blogs that were detached from the company (Desert Rose). I’ll be running them all – quite happily.
I’m starting over, and re-doing what I did when I was younger. Only this time, I’m doing it with more experience. With more to say. As an adult, not a budding adult. With drive, experienced passion, and the knowledge that I can, because I already did. I paved this road once before, and dang it, I’ll do it again. I’ll re-page that S.O.B. and make it smooth as silk.
I don’t really care who reads this, I just wrote it for me. To remind myself why I’m doing this. That I’m not wasting my time. This is one of my passions, and I’d rather be doing something I love, even if no one notices, rather than be stuck in a job I hate. Maybe God will bless it with growth, and maybe He’ll bless it with self-growth, for me. Who knows. Either way, I’m happy to be doing this. I love my blogs. I love designing websites. I love writing. And I love anyone who takes the time to read my stuff, and just give a shit. So if you did, if you do – thank you.
If not, well, so long, and thanks for all the fish! 😉
