My Dearest Mad-Readers,
If you have read the post I published on Monday, you know I set a challenge for myself this week. I decided to publish an article everyday to see how it would go. Well, here are my conclusions now that Friday is upon us.
Blogging Is Community-Oriented
I truly understood that this week. If you aren’t part of the community, promoting your work and helping others grow, then your blog will likely never take off. Blogging is an act of sharing. We should be grateful for the attention we get and help back the ones who help us. Thank you all for dropping by and reading this ! 🙂
Blogging Is Hard Work
This heading essentially means that blogging is a full-time job. Yes, you read that right. A full-time job. There is SO MUCH to do everyday : jotting down ideas in a text file, drafting articles you intend to publish in the days to come, writing a blog post for the day, polishing it, publishing it, promoting it (going to others’ blogs, being actually interested in their work takes time & you need to find the blogs that will interest you too in order to appreciate their contents) and if you still have some time, detail one or two more articles so that you only need to tweak them before publishing them the next day or so you can schedule them.
Blogging Is Fun
When you have your own website, you can write about anything. You are entirely free to pursue all your passions, which is what I intend to do. I always believed that I was too “dispersed”, that I liked too many things and it would be hard to pursue all of them. Blogging showed me a way to combine everything I love, and I am grateful for that. Most grateful ! (Thanks everyone!)
I have always been pretty good at organizing myself & much less good when I had someone bossing me around. I see blogging as an extraordinary opportunity to do what I love everyday while inspiring (hopefully enlightening) others’ days as well.
I Am On Fire ! Are You ?
This month is the one this blog goes wild, I am telling you ! Today is July tenth and we have already bested the last three months put together in terms of stats. If we can do that in a week and a half, what are we capable of in a whole month ? Are you with me to try and reach 100 followers this month ? Doesn’t it sound like a great challenge we can overcome together ?
If you want to support me with this challenge, feel free to subscribe (you get to be warned whenever I post some amazing article), like (if you liked this post), comment (cause I’m sure you have something to say) or even share. Perhaps someone else you know would be interested in this blog ? Spread the word ! The more the merrier, right ? 😉
Take care of yourselves,
