I am filled with a tremendous shame and I know I have committed a mortal sin in the blogging world. I think I’m going to blogger hell. I abandoned my blog.
The Birth of My Blog
In May 2008 I launched my blog. Really, if I am honest, the work began in January 2008. I started studying and working on the concept of what I wanted. With the help of my friend @LorenNason I built it and launched my baby blog in May. I was filled with enthusiasm and commitment.
I knew that a blog took commitment, some time, good content, and consistency. I know that still. Fortunately, I met with some early success and business followed. And yet….
Life, and Business, Happens
Things started getting crazy right around my blog’s first birthday. The summer market started heating up bringing business with it. My agents were all busy.
Regular life had its way with me too. My kids were out of school for the summer. And then there was the death of a friend.
And sadly, with great shame and sadness, without intent, I abandoned my blog.
Just Do It!
Nike’s slogan didn’t enjoy such success without reason. Blogging reminds me of my workout regime. Just shut up and do it.
Ironically, I love it when I’m blogging consistently. I love the satisfaction of having done it. And I love the results – just like working out. But fail to go to the gym, or blog, the results eventually go away. I’ve lived both.
Sadly, I’ve noticed that if I quit working out for just one month – I may go three. I think that’s what happened to my blog. A few too many days went by and I just disconnected from my routine. Getting back to the gym that first day is always the biggest hurdle and then I remember what I loved about it.
Tomorrow, I will visit the gym …and my blog.
I’m open to tips on restarting your blog if you’ve got them!
