I have written each day since the start of the year.
I think that I need to take more time to reach out to the blogging community because I see others who have just begun blogging and have large readerships and some of them even have sponsors and guest writers. I have been keeping fairly to myself and writing just my thoughts and have none of those things.
I sometimes imagine a life where I can make a living writing and could therefore live anywhere in the world.
Perhaps, I need to start working on making that happen.
I am going to peruse the blogs I love and that I have seen grow and look at who/where they are connected and see if I can do some of the same. I know that all of my posts are not super-meaningful, but I think I can be at least a little entertaining at times, and can provide insight at other times, and can just provide beautiful images/quotes/ideas at other times. The few people that do read my blog seem to have decent things to say about my writing and my ideas, so I must be doing something decently.
Off to grow ideas and research if it is possible to grow into a more fulfilled writer.
For personal reasons I took a break from posting (but kept writing ) last month. During that time I thought about the same things you talk about here. Besides trying to decide, how 'open' I am ready to be on such a public forum. Especially since I tend to keep people at a safe distance. However, I want to reach out more share my story in hopes of connecting & helping others. One tool I'm implementing is an editorial calendar. Hopefully, it will help as a guide for what I share & when. I'm learning sharing ideas with other bloggers can be a really beneficialReplyDelete
I am also one who keeps people at a bit of a distance. But, I, too, am trying to reach out to more people. Not sure if my writing right now helps others or just entertains, but I think I want to reach more people.Delete
Good for you, and good luck with this. Keep the rest of us posted on any tricks you learn, if you please? I'll trade for trade :)ReplyDelete
I will definitely share any ideas I discover as I come across them.Delete
Thanks for the well wishes!
I am in much the same place as you. I'm feeling more and more like I'm at a crossroads with my writing/blogging, and I need to take decisive steps to move in either one direction or the other. I'm happy to share any connections I make or tips I pick up, and I'd love to hear what you find too!ReplyDelete
