Small Changes, Big Ideas

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change~

I had a recent conversation with my friend Devan about how I felt my blog wasn’t going anywhere. I felt like I had hit a dead end that had made me feel that this is destined to just be a hobby for the rest of my days. However, Devan urged me to acknowledge how much progress I had made in the past year and not to give up hope that it could go somewhere. That being said, I started thinking for quite some time about the type of content I would create if time and finances weren’t an object and I realized my brain has a lot of great ideas.

What I also realized is that I don’t need to spend tons of money or even tons of time to get started on creating content that I hope to someday improve upon. I came to the realization that I was struggling with blogging, not because I wasn’t capable of doing it, but because I was feeling too discouraged by life to put my all into it.

However, I find that blogging is something I truly enjoy and there is not better feeling than posting things I really feel proud of. But sometimes I don’t get the response I want despite working hours on a post and that can really be a huge blow to my motivation. I started to realize that although stats matter, I can’t let them be the only driving factor in creating content.

Instead of trying to post content because I think it is what people want to see, I need to start creating content that people didn’t know they wanted to see. I want to create content that I, as a reader, would find unique and interesting and something to keep coming back for.

Right now, I have thought of a lot of great ideas that I am considering “reach goals” for future years of blogging, but right now I plan to integrate the ideas I have in small ways, by testing out new types of posts and seeing how they perform. Also, if you are a consistent reader of my content, I would love your input on what kind of posts you read for so I can get to my know audience better,

Overall, the largest small change I want to make is getting back into my pre-planning so I can take more time preparing production-heavy content that I feel I, along with my readers, will enjoy!

I hope that these small changes will help me change my blogging perspective and turn this little hobby into something more tangible.

  1. Today is gonna be the day
    That they’re gonna throw it back to you
    By now you should’ve somehow
    Realized what you gotta do
    I don’t believe that anybody
    Feels the way I do, about you now
    Backbeat, the word was on the street
    That the fire in your heart is out
    I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
    But you never really had a doubt
    I don’t believe that anybody
    Feels the way I do about you now
    And all the roads we have to walk are winding
    And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
    There are many things that I
    Would like to say to you but I don’t know how
    Because maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
    And after all, you’re my wonderwall
    Today was gonna be the day
    But they’ll never throw it back to you
    By now you should’ve somehow
    Realized what…
