Right now I’m developing a mission and a message.
It took some time to come to this point.
I just wanted to write a poem
And call it a blog post.
No, I’m not going to write poetry to you now. I’m going to talk to you about my journey to becoming a professional blogger. To tell you where I’m at and what I’ve done, and what I’m doing to become a professional blogger. Some body who makes money by helping other people to blog.
I have a barely engaged list of 11 people. That’s taken me around a year to make. So not even one subscriber a month. At least that’s the average. It’s more like I get three in a month and then I go with nothing for months. It’s really a painful experience. I hope to be able to do more. That’s why I’m taking massive action creating a savings account from my day job so I can pay cash to go to an event. I’ve heard from Pat Flynn (who makes a million dollars a year) that if he only had a few hundred dollars and wanted to start a business what would he do. He always says he would get to a blogging event.
Granted an event is more than I could pay for at the present, it’s not like I’m not saving to go to one and already have a head start. In a few more months (which happen quick) I will have enough to pay for a ticket and a room. The room being important because I don’t want to have to sleep on the streets. If I had a gun to my head I would, like being in sales, I would do it. But if I don’t have a gun to my head I’m only going to put into my best work what I do on my blog and I’m not going to be sleeping on the streets. I do sell that like I have a gun to my head, as all bloggers should blog, but I would then again, like my family, die for my blog. Not that that would be necessary. I would also die for my day job, that being said they have a good employee. They’ve definitely extended a helping hand to me and my family. It’s been like no other day, or night job that I’ve ever had. Granted it doesn’t pay as much as some other jobs I’ve had.
But it’s a hard job. Just like the writing. It’s hard. If it wasn’t it wouldn’t be worth doing. Although, I get procrastination, even worse procrastination without reading anything. After life, you just want to sit there and unwind. I’ve found though that it’s best to be doing something, rather than just drinking.
Especially when you can say that more than one thing went right today. That should inspire you to take even more action. But as I said I’m developing my mission on this journey to become a professional blogger. Right now I believe that mission is to help bloggers blog. I also have come up with a message. That message being that blogging is one of the best ways to develop personally and professionally. That’s what I’m currently living by.
To be honest I’m a big fan of the law of attraction and I for years tried to manifest a lottery win. The best I ever did was to win $50 off a dollar scratch off. You could say with all the time I spent doing nothing but visualization I was wasting my time in a state of inaction or limbo. There’s nothing I can do to get that time back.
Although that’s not to say I won’t still win the lottery, but that’s not what my focus is going to be on. I making the shift to blogging. Everyday, as I go about my day, I will be thinking of being a professional blogger. Feeling what being a professional blogger will feel like. It’s a lot better than writing a blog post on how I’m going to be a millionaire tomorrow morning and being wrong, and repeating that ad nausem.
Believe me, I’ve done it. I had a blog on blogger, a free blog and it was all about when I was in the mood I would write these poems about winning these specific jackpots, and none of it ever happened.
Believe me, blogging about blogging is much better than blogging about the lottery. There is a far less chance you’ll make a fool of yourself.
At any rate, as I was getting to, I’m going to a free event at Eggspectation 10209 Grand Central Ave in Owenings Mills, Maryland. They are holding an event called “Money and Mimosas”. My goal is to exchange email addresses with at least one other person. Maybe it will happen, maybe it won’t. Either way it’s going to be nice to get out of the house for the reason of blogging.
I know I would love to meet you at this event, if you wanted to go, I know it’s kind of short notice as it’s tomorrow March 4th, 2018 at 12pm. If you want to go though, here is the link.
I’m really looking forward to it. I’m happy about it. I love blogging and going to this thing is going to be an expression of that love. I hope you can find it in yourself to write your own blog today, because of what you’ve just read here.
