Blog aspiration part 2

Since I posted my last blog about my blog which can be found here, I’ve been feeling a little down.  I’ve been thinking long and hard about what I want to do from my blogs and whether it is worthwhile even blogging.I feel like I’ve had a bit of a reality check and if I want to keep writing as a hobby, then I should probably stop spending so much time on it.  I do like the idea of making it big and popular but I don’t know where I am going with it or how to get more followers on it or what to offer as an incentive to get more followers.

When I was on wordpress.com rather than wordpress.org, it was so much easier in a way.  I just wrote about what I wanted and published it.  I didn’t worry about followers or social media stuff.  I’m not even sure what made me want to even think about making my blog big.  Some of the things I keep reading over and over again include some of the following:

  • Offer freebies when you opt in
  • I should have an opt in and build an email list.
  • I need to have a focus or niche.
  • I need to write about something that will help my readers

If I keep it as a hobby, just to write about my life and frustrations then I’m not sure where I’m  going to go with it or if I should go anywhere with it.  Writing a blog and an email just seems like too much hard work and effort for very little benefit and I’m not even sure why.  In my last blog I think I said I wish I could just write but I think, in reality, I also enjoy the challenge of making this blog more than it is and working out all the difficult and technical aspects – sometimes.  Other times I just get frustrated with it all.

Well, I feel a little better having written all of this down. I’m still not sure where I’m going with it all but I might try and do something in the next few weeks.  Watch this space!!
