I was compensated for writing this post
One thing that bothers me the most is the numbers game. You know the one I’m talking about. It is basically played in every area of life:
~Facebook Fan Pages
The thing that I have come to realize that blogging is NOT about numbers. Life is NOT about numbers, church is NOT about numbers.
It’s about the people
The change you make in their life
The wisdom you share with them
For me, I don’t hang around a blog that does not have some nugget of wisdom for me, whether it be spiritual for for my home, or for our homeschool. I love when I find blogs that are real and share their heart in every area of their lives.
That is how I want to be here — with you.
What about you? If you blog, do you worry about numbers all the time? How do you get past that?
It has taken me some time to come to terms with what I have been calling myself lately — a sellout. I have been really upset with how I have allowed my blog to change, knowing all full well why I created it to begin with.
It’s not a place to find out about products.
It’s not a place to share with you about giveaways.
My blog is here because God gave me a vision a long time ago of using this very tool, to help women be better moms, wives, daughters, and homemakers. Sure, the money has been good, but that is not what I wanted for this space. This is my online personal space. I don’t want to sell out and quit doing what I love in order to make money.
I want to be able to write passionately and share all of that with you!
So, I finally made up my mind about the advertising and sharing about products, etc. I have contacted most companies to remove me from their lists. The book reviews I will continue, because books are a great learning tool for any woman and I have some really good onescoming up soon. I will continue to share my travels with you, but products? I will leave those to the big bloggers.
But for me, in my little online space, I will share with you my heart — my heart as a mom, my heart as a daughter to God, and my heart as a wife and homemaker. That is what I want from this blog!
I’m working on a schedule of sorts and redesigning things a bit around here. If you are reading this through email or RSS, click through and check out all the changes that I’ve made. While you’re at it, leave me a comment letting me know what topics you would love to see covered here. I’m always open for suggestions
I love you guys a bunch! Thanks for hanging in there with me as I figure out what I was supposed to be doing all along.
Ever since I went to New York a few weeks back, I have been pondering this question. I watched and listened in awe as many women who are all bloggers shared their different takes on what they did on their sites and how they got where they are today.
So I started asking myself, What is it that you want for your own blog?
I thought I wanted to do reviews.
I thought I wanted to just do giveaways and draw in readers.
However, the more I write on my blog and I read what others post, I have decided on the answer for what I want for my blog.
I want to be authentic.
I don’t want to be like anyone else when it comes to blogging.
Good grammar does not make you a great blogger.
Posting about the latest and greatest hot trending topic does not make you a great blogger.
Having tons of followers does not make you a great blogger.
What makes you a great blogger is just being yourself and being REAL.
Do you have problems comparing yourself to other bloggers? How do you handle your own competitiveness to be like the rest?
I decided this weekend that for a while, I am not going to be blogging on Saturday and Sunday. I am going to try *really* hard to cut my Internet time down since I no longer work from home so I am leaving the weekend open for just my family starting next weekend.
Ya know what else I did? I removed all the ways to track my blog stats. I have been so consumed with how fast my blog is growing and how everyone is commenting and it was beginning to take over *why* I was blogging, so I deleted it all. I don’t want my writing to be about numbers and such. I only want to share what is important to me.
Another thing I realize is that my niche here is a Lifestyle blogger. I am so glad to finally have a name for what I do. I talk about everything on here. Whatever hits my fancy that day and I think that is what makes me unique!
Have a great day friends and I will have a wonderful post for you on Monday. Not sure what that will be yet, but I am SURE it will be something great.
Thanks to my friend Nancy, she set me on the right path to figuring out how to make a favicon for my site! Guess what?
I did it! YAY!
Check out the little box at the top and you will see the wedding rings. I love it!
And now for the announcement:
I am just about ready to upload the project I have been working on for about 2 months. It is a special desserts E-Book that I have put together for you! Some of these recipes I have shared here, but others have not been shared just yet. It is my freebie to YOU as a way to say thank you for being my friend.
There is a catch though.
In order to get this, you have to be a subscriber to my site, either by email or by RSS feed reader. You can take care of that now by signing up in the top right hand corner of my sidebar! I will be releasing it next week!
I’m so excited! I can’t wait!
Awhile back on Amy Bayliss’s blog, she talked about niches and who you are as a blogger. Since I read that post, I have racked my brain, prayed, and begged and pleaded within myself to find out what it is I do over here.
It finally hit me the other day at the park.
It never occurred to me how many posts I have actually written about marriage. It should have been so obvious. I am writing a book on marriage, my marriage has been to Hades and back and then some, and I share passionately about the changes God has made in my marriage. Everything else I write about revolves around marriage:
- the food I cook
- raising our kids
- dating my husband
- books I read
It just seems like everything I do is related to marriage.
So here is where YOU come in.
What would you like to see discussed on For Such a Time as This?
- More recipes?
- More marriage tips?
- More homeschooling tips?
I want to hear from you! Tell me what you want to read about on here. I am all ears.
