I hope your week is going well. I’ve been busy with a lot of things. More as this blog progresses.
Today, I’d like to tell you about this blog and why I set it up.
When I first had the idea to start a blog, I wanted to do it to make money online. I used to read stories of how moms made $10,000 a month from their blog and thought how great it would be to earn that kind of money working on my computer.
The steps were the same. Choose a money-making niche and use the many ways of monetizing the blog.
Sounded simple enough. So I tried it. And failed miserably.
I just didn’t have the passion and drive to create and maintain a blog geared towards making money.
Instead, I was having more fun on Facebook, writing about my life and the lessons I’ve learned from my experiences. And people were responding positively to my posts.
I wasn’t making money and I didn’t care!
I was excited that I was making a difference in people’s lives and that gave me so much satisfaction and joy. It was something I have always wanted to do.
Helping others need not involve giving financial assistance, although it is one of the ways. What many people want and need is a kind shoulder to lean on, compassion, love, among others, which money cannot buy.
I feel the same way. I treasure what I call, ‘blessings’, which cannot be valued in dollars and cents. I will share in future posts what those ‘blessings’ are.
So, that is why I’ve decided to expand my reach and hope to touch more lives by sharing my stories and thoughts on this new and fresh blog.
I hope you’ll stick around for awhile before you decide if this is for you. Please feel free to offer your insights and share your personal stories so that others may benefit from your experience.
After all, it is better for us to learn from the experiences of others without having to go through such trials ourselves.
Until my next post during the weekend, choose an inspired life!
