I have decided that, writing is really fulfilling for me and so I’m committing to being a full-time blogger. That means I want to spend 40 hours a week on blogging. That includes writing, planning, configuration, networking, and so on.
Of course I still need my day job to pay the bills. I’m content with my day job, I like the physical exercise, and many benefits regarding pay, insurance, etc. I will probably stay at the same job for a while unless a great opportunity pops up for me.
It is possible to make money through blogging but you really, really have to dedicate yourself. So I mean, that would be great, but I know it’s not easy. Either way, I might as well try, and I know it’s very good for my mental health which is rewarding enough. I really enjoy challenging myself and applying my determination.
I’m focused on this blog but I also have another blog I’ve created about astrology and all that esoteric stuff. I’m not yet ready to share it because it still needs a lot of work. So I’m going to focus on both blogs for now and see which one brings more success and fulfillment, hopefully eventually just focus mainly on one.
I’m excited about my new venture and seeing where it will bring me. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of frustration and probably even thoughts of quitting, but I think this will be a great challenge. I’m sure I will get something out of this, somehow.
I’m utilizing my second bedroom as my “office” where I’ll be doing all my work. I’m using a large floor table as my “desk.” There’s a beautiful view of the trees from here. I’ll share a photo once everything is fully set up.
Feel free to share your thoughts and any tips you may have. Let me know if you think I would find more success through this current blog, which covers a wide variety of subjects, or my astrology blog which is more focused but may attract a smaller crowd!
