Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share one in the comments. It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad!
This week I have chosen the word Enjoyment
Today’s word of the week is very much about this blog, Sunshine and Rain. My blog was something small I started a couple of years ago which I dabbled in here and there. Then back in July last year I decided to take it a bit more seriously. Unfortunately I put far too much emphasis on making it a success straight away. I set a schedule and had goals for views and social media and so on.
So many bloggers now do it full time and many even advertise courses on how to make your blog wonderful and income generating. I got completely caught up in the whirlwind of “this needs to be something professional”. What did everyone want to read? What was popular? Should I post twice a week or three times? Should it be more than that? I forgot all about the reason I got into blogging in the first place. I enjoy it.
I’m pleased to say that I think my feet are firmly back on the ground now and I’m completely refocused. No stress, no schedules, no worrying about whether I’ve published on time or promoted enough. Sunshine and Rain is about enjoyment for me and I hope that will begin to shine through in the coming weeks and months.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
