This must be a new notification from WordPress because in all my years I have never seen it before.
I like it. It keeps me going.
Is it possible to see this message every day for a year? Of course it is! But is it possible for me? I will have to see. There is nothing stopping me from posting daily other than my own motivation. Something that I admittedly struggle with however the more I post, the more of a boost it gives me and helps me to get the ball rolling. I want that ball to get as big as the one that almost screwed Indiana Jones over all those years ago. That is a ball that makes waves.
Blogging is like going on a long run. The first one isn’t easy. Not just whilst on the run, but to actually get out of bed and go for it in the first place. It gets easier over time, knowing what it feels like once we have achieved. That ‘feel good factor’ can be addicting and I feel it with blogging.
It is what I want to do in life. Be able to give my undivided attention to providing my thoughts in whatever way I can and not have to work another job in the mean time. Life is too short to work for other people and other peoples businesses. Not that I haven’t enjoyed the places I have worked, I do, but I am just not 100% satisfied. I would be much more satisfied in this life if I can express myself and give my thoughts and opinions on some of the biggest topics and questions we have in existence today, and make it a career. To have more free time to write a book and try to find ways to be creative and experimental. Travel has helped with this a lot. I am often free in my spare time and have time to write, but as I am constantly in new places, travel is the number one topic I write about right now.
But it won’t always be, as it hasn’t always been. Religion, politics, current affairs, morality, philosophy… you can find it all here amongst the 1000+ posts.
Some people have told me they wouldn’t want to blog full time. It may become boring or routine and therefore the passion dies. I understand this, but I honestly feel the passion wouldn’t die. It would become more of a passion with more responsibility to provide great posts and more time to do so.
And with this I ask you, would you blog as a full time job (aka a paid blogger) if you could?
