    It is so important to stay true to your thoughts and not get so caught up on how your blog will rank, as when you write quality commentary it will speak for itself. Being number one in Google is great, but it isn’t everything. Great blog. So useful.

    I could really relate to the first part of your post in a personal manner because I too want to write a book and that’s the reason I started out with blogging. Just to get started! Great and honest advice.

      Ankita, it is definitely hard finding the right balance and staying focused on your goals. Just know apparently there are quite a few of us out here just trying to write and make a difference.

    LOL yes, same! I don’t want to make a bunch of pins for ONE article, but it’s just something we have to do!

    The thing I find with a lot of bloggers is that they don’t engage with their readers. That’s one thing that is so important and will build a following.

    I love this, because I’m feeling it, too. I started my blog because I love to write and share things, but then got swept up in this whole world of Specific Blogging Things I Should Be Doing. Sometimes I think, oh, with a little work I can expand my audience and maybe make some side money . . . it can’t be that hard and why not really? Then other times I’m like I just want to write and if even one person sees something and can relate to it then I’d be happy with just that. It’s a confusing place, for sure. Looking forward to part two. Thanks for sharing. ❤️

      Valerie, I’m glad I’m not the only one going back and forth with this. For me, it is so important that I don’t lose sight of why I started. Then again, I struggle with wanting people to see it and implementing what needs to be done. Thanks for reading and commenting.
