Blogging is a funny gig. Sharing what we love can feel so totally amazing one day, yet can become somewhat of a burden the next.
This is where a plan of action can really help you. (see part 3 here) A plan will basically guide you on where you need to apply your time.
But what if you don’t have a plan? What if you’re still winging it in life?
I remember when I started blogging. I had no idea what I was doing or why I was spending a ridiculous amount of hours decorating my home, only to have to photoshoot it, then edit, then put it on a blog that didn’t pay my way in life. I mean, what was the point?
And I’m sure I was like 99% of you. At some point you say, “I should just quit.”
And then I stayed offline for abit, convinced I was far better off. But as soon as I drove by a piece of junk, my heart did a lurch and I was back in the thick of it once again.
And again and again and again.
Truly. I’d be in tears some days with the amount of busy I was dealing with. But I could not for the life of me turn off my passion. Know why?
Because it was a chance for true happiness. That in itself, continues to give me enough fuel to push through.
So on we go. But now what?
Well, it took me 3 years to figure out one of my plans. Tonight I cracked open my unfinished sign ebook yet again. Yes, the one so many of you email me about. Sorry for my procrastination.
I now know I needed the time to get a better camera, and hone my photography and writing skills. To learn what works and what doesn’t in the world of blogging and social media. Every hour I’ve spent online may look like play to one, but to me, I’ve been improving, working with others, learning and trying to be the best I can be. I guess I just needed 3 years to position myself into a place where I could be self sufficient in my next step.
Plans just flat out don’t happen overnight. We don’t know what will happen or where this will go. Or even if we’re on the right track.
But one day something will click. You may get an offer in your inbox that will tip your world. Or a phone call that will have you rejoicing with happy tears.
Or maybe.. just maybe, your plan was sitting on your lap the entire time, waiting for the perfect moment to be acted upon.
Is it your time?
