The Blogger Blues aka Blogger Dissociative Disorder
Yes, I made those up. However, made up illness names do describe how I get with my blog.
Last time I wrote I was in a heap of “Amazon shut off my associate account because of inactivity” and the result of that was that all my amazon links would generate zero income if someone did click on one of them. So I was faced with the daunting task of going back through them all to put in new links with a new amazon associates account. So. Much. Pain. In. My. Ass. So guess what I did? Nothing. I did zero. I just walked away from it.
I’m not proud, but it’s what happened when the Blogger Blues hit me.
The question is what do I do now? I’m going to write and blog and I’m not going to worry about amazon links right now.
Guess what else I’m going to do? I’m going to write about whatever I want. Anything. Everything. That will include my businesses, but it won’t ONLY be about business. It will be about my life and all the craziness that’s encompassed within. I’m going to write about how I’m a prepper, and how I think everyone should be preppers. I’m going to write about how I’m the worst prepper there is in the whole wide world. I’m going to bitch and moan about my businesses. I’m going to swear sometimes. I’m going to laugh and write about my small victories. I’m going to just be me in the most raw and vulnerable way. That’s what having the Blogger Blues taught me–to stop trying to “fit in” to some niche because all the top bloggers tell you that’s what you need to do to be one of the “cool bloggers”. Bah. Screw that. I’ve got no time to be trying to be a cool kid while I’m in my mid-thirties! That’s what the Blogger Blues continues to teach me–you get burned out trying to keep up with the crowd. Just be you, unapologetically. If you gain a following, fine. If not, that’s fine too.
