Confessions of a Blogger – I’m Done
Well guys, it’s about time I’m honest with you, and with myself. I’ve taken about a month and a half off from blogging and trying to do anything online to make money.
The truth is I hate working a 9-5 desk job, I mean who doesn’t? But it’s hard to build a business, it’s hard moving states, it’s hard to get out of bed when you feel like you’re just living to pay bills….*Sigh* Life can be hard.
The reason why I took so long off from the business I’ve been building is that I’m not happy doing it. I have always felt like I could make a really really profitable blog if we really needed the money I’d get my butt in gear and things would just work. Yet, I realized I have every reason right now for this blog to work, yet it’s not where I want it to be.
So my question to my self was, “Why is this not working??!”
And then I had my “Ah-hah moment” life is as hard or as bad as we make it. I mean this in the sense that you have the power to change your life, it won’t happen all at once. But there are things you can do to make your life so much better.
Honestly, there are days where I struggle to get out of bed because as soon as I hear my alarm clock I’m already thinking about everything I have to do that day, most of which I really don’t want to do. How I’m living a life that doesn’t make me happy. How I just want to stay in bed and not talk to anyone…. Can you relate?
If you can relate I’m sorry you’re going through something hard. It sucks. But I’m done letting life feel like it’s too much and like I don’t have any control. I am done letting situations control how I think and feel.
I am done blogging about things that are meaningless. I used to think my posts had substance but to be honest I wanted to make my blog a money-making machine. So most of the posts I had written were subliminally begging my audience to pull out their wallets, each post was more of a sales pitch.
So I’m done. I owe it to you and I owe it to myself.
Now, if I post anything that you can buy it’s because I truly believe in the product because I use it and love it so much that I can’t help but share how amazing it is. Because I want you to benefit from the things I find that make life better.
With that said, I am going to remove a lot of old content!
I am also done being a Virtual Assistant. It was an interest that I had, so I bought a course and learned a lot. I’ve had a few clients and there have been ups and downs to the job. I’ve made a fairly decent profit but again it’s not making me happy.
So now I’m headed in a new direction, and I’m inviting you to join me:
I have talked about wanting to help others live a great life, and to live the life you’ve always imagined. But I’m not even doing that. I have been busting my butt to make a successful business which keeps failing time and time again. So I am going to stop doing things that make me unhappy. I am done trying to blog for a profit, it if happens it happens. At this point, I just want to be happy and do things that make me happy.
If you can relate to any of the following I want you to join me in this journey:
- Stuck, and you don’t know where to go
- Like you’re not good enough
- There’s someone better out there so why try
- Frustrated with how you look
I am going to figure out the best way to do this. It’ll be a learning process but I want to share my experience of how I’m changing my life. How I’m able to choose happiness day after day. And I want you to do the same. I want to hear your stories, I want to hear how you are living a life that makes getting out of bed easy.
I want to hear your successes, your struggles, etc., I want to build a community that supports each other.
I am going to be doing a weekly guest post. Please Send your stories to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll post your stories for others to be inspired or so others can answer questions that you have or offer support.
If you want to feel any of the following, Once again I invite you to submit your stories and join me:
- Incontrol of your life
Life isn’t always easy. But together we can make it easier, we can make life enjoyable. I want you to feel like there’s nothing in this world that can stop you from living your dreams.
I’m starting to do just that by blogging about what I love most which is Personal Development and Fitness.
I was a gymnast for 14 years, and I coached it for 3 years after my retirement. Fitness has always been a huge part of my life. I have been stupid to let fear hold me back from blogging about it. From sharing my experience about fitness.
What?! Fear was holding me back….?? Yes. I have been afraid that I don’t compare to all the other fitness bloggers. I have a huge weakness for sweets, and I don’t have an “Instagram Worthy” house/gym. But I’m throwing those fears away and I’m deciding to just take action.
I am going to become a Beachbody coach in February! I am super excited I’ve been doing tons of research and I’ve been getting super excited! I cannot wait to start, which has actually made my mornings a lot easier because I have something to look forward to.
You may be thinking, “Hey Bre, don’t you know that Beachbody is just another start up business that you have to shove down people’s throats to make any money?”
I know there is a business aspect, yes. At heart, I’m an entrepreneur so I am totally drawn to the idea of being able to support my family from home. But like I said before if I make money then awesome, if not, I don’t care because I’m doing what’s right for me. I am finally doing something that makes me completely and blissfully happy.
I am so excited to go public with my fitness journey, you can follow me or don’t. My vision is to build a tribe of strong powerful women that want to make a difference in their lives that want to be happy with what they’re doing. To be happy with how they look and feel, I want to build a bad-A tribe of powerful women.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to feel like I’m just living to pay bills.I don't want to feel like I'm living just to pay bills. #strongpowerfulwomen #bossbabe Click To Tweet
