The End? Blogging

The Last Post I’ll Ever Write

…under this domain. 😉

So here’s the deal: My blog sucks.

Now you may think I’m being harsh or rash, but there are several valid reasons as to why this website lacks growth potential.

I’ve only been blogging for three and half months! It takes much much longer than that to grow a site, but that’s why I’m doing this now.

I have a beautiful website, 100% of the graphics created for this site have been my own, and I do genuinely believe that I can write compelling and professional copy. But over the past three months of being in this field, I have learned so many things I didn’t know on day one. I mean, that was kind of the point of all this..

But now, learning what I have, there are just a few things that I need to adjust and take time to think on before I continue.

Here are some reasons that this blog doesn’t work:

The Five Pillars of Marketing

Attempting to establish a brand or business through online marketing in the age of content overload is like dropping a baitless hook into the middle of the ocean hoping a fish will bump into it with its mouth open.

Living Among Giants: How can I compete?

When you just start something, it can be kind of daunting to look at your competition. You’re starting from scratch, and they already have things established; in some cases, great things. How could you ever compete with these people who are already there?

Well, the Persian army was certainly “already there” when King Leonidas of Sparta and his army of 7,000 free men stood their ground for 7 days against more than 100,000 Persians leading to the demise of the Persian invasion. The Greeks didn’t have nearly the numbers or resources, but they certainly made a mark in the history books. A strong mentality can go a long way.

What Do You Do When You Lose All Motivation?

Everyone has their ups and their downs. It’s normal. But what do you do when you really just can’t find any motivation? You were so moved and inspired to do something that you actually took action, but now it feels impossible to achieve what you set out to accomplish. Negativity has suddenly creeped in, and the odds are against you.

Obviously you thought it possible at some point because you made a move, but just knowing that you were motivated at that point in time isn’t enough to motivate you today. You know you were born to fly, but all of the sudden, jumping out of the nest is the last thing you want to do.
