Do you have someone in your life (or your own little inside voice) that doesn’t see what you’re building with your blog?
As bloggers, that little voice in the back of our heads causes much grief and doubt. Add that to friends and family members making comments about getting a “real” job, it’s easy to see why so many blogs are abandoned.
Blogging is touted as something that is “easy” – I mean everyone has one (or 3). But professional blogging ISN’T easy. It takes many hours of hard work, that are often unpaid, that causes significant others, family members and friends to question what you’re doing.
In a recent Periscope broadcast, I shared with viewers that this happens to me too. But I encourage you to stay the course. Find your why and the how will come.
Believe in yourself…and show everyone that you are building a business – not just a blog.
