Blogging has become a fantastic hobby for me. I have to say I absolutely enjoy writing and sharing my truths.
I read a lot of blogs and I can see so much potential in the writers. I know for me when I get the notification that someone has read my blog or commented makes me smile. I enjoy reading the comments under each post. I can say, I love engaging with people whom I never met and discuss their views and opinions about my writing.
However, we do have those days where we have very little traffic and no one seems to care what you write.
REMEMBER WHY YOU STARTED!
Every now and then, check yourself. Ask yourself, why did I do this? Why did I start to write and why did I want the world to read my writings?
I can tell you for me, I started because I wanted to share what I have learned, overcome, pushed through, and prove to myself that yes, you do have a purpose. There is a reason that God has you here on earth.
It feels absolutely amazing to see the comments that I receive about my blog and I really enjoy talking about Jesus and talking about how he has changed my life. Thats my niche, what’s yours? What’s your passion?
I recently had a conversation on Instagram with a female who asked how my christian blog was doing, and she had concerns about not having enough content.
One, the fact that she asked me had me all in my feels, I was so stoked, I was like OMG you asked me, but then I told her the philosophy I use “Ask God what to write about.” I feel as though if I talked to God about what he wants me to write, writing should be pretty easy. I mean who better to spread his truths but the man himself, and he can use my writings to do so.
The point of this post is to remind each and every blogger, focus on your goal. Why did you start? What do you want from this?
Yes you will have people follow and unfollow, comments will flow in and then it will be dry. You’ll have high numbers and low numbers, but focus on your goal and keep that in the front of your mind every time you begin to out your thoughts on paper.
Keep writing, someone wants and needs to read your work!
