Five Things I’ve Learned About Blogging

I constantly see “what I’ve learned” blog posts popping up on my social media feeds; I read some of them, mainly from bloggers who I respect but also some that I’ve never heard of just to get a different perspective.  One consistent point that people raise is that you will go into a slump at some point, you’ll question what you’re doing and wonder why you’re bothering with the linkies, the commenting, the staging, the reviews, the networking, and promotion, and getting very little in return.  Their advice is always the same.  Take a breath and remember why you started blogging in the first place; go back to basics and very much like Rocky going to Apollo Creed’s gym after losing to Mr T, or a similar simile for how Stella got her groove back, you need to find that spark or hunger that made you put finger to keyboard in the first place.  Unfortunately I’m a miserable bastard and I’m in a really deep slump in the parent blogging world that I fear there is no getting out of.  Here are five things, then, that I’ve learned since starting blogging 4 years ago.

So here is my list, in no particular order, of the 10 women, who if they ever decided to get with a fat, bald, broke, grumpy father of 2, then I’d happily cook them eggs in the morning.

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in life

I feel trapped.  I feel caged by my own fear and circumstance.  I hate it.  I hate feeling this way.  It stops me from enjoying my life as it forces me to focus on the bars that surround me. I hate my job.  Not dislike it, find it inconvenient sometimes, […]
