Writing a blog’s an up and down thing. One day I love it, then the next day I wonder why I bother at all. Especially when my dear husband sends me cruel little jokes about bloggers like that one, where bloggers are compared unfavorably to monks. I hardly found it funny at all, so I think I’ve been spending too much time writing and not doing enough living.
The Difference Between a Blog and a Website
Since bloggers are the butt of jokes these days I’m not calling In the Hot Spot a blog anymore. From now on, if you ask me, it’s officially a website. Well, what’s the difference anyway? I won’t get started on that now, but what I’m aiming for here is a dynamic website, with easy to find and useful information that’s topical and updated often. Hopefully the archiving will improve when I relocate it to my own domain name and revamp the site. Soon soon!
Good News For Hard Working Bloggers
The good news is that my blog statistics show a definite upward trend, and the number of people who’ve subscribed to my email updates is growing slowly, but surely, too. But it’s going to be a long journey to achieve my goal. I suppose it’s now that I need to remember that it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. All I can really do is keep writing away, enjoying it and finding more funny, inspirational and/or weird stories that keep us all on track in hot pursuit of out dreams.
Shortcut To Success
That was a naughty trick because there are no shortcuts to success. I think we all know this in our hearts although it’s fun to imagine that there may be a quick route to achieve our dreams. In the end, it all comes down to this. If you want to succeed at something you need to:
- • work hard
• stay motivated
• keep focused
You’ll get there in the end.
