Happy Monday! First things first, today my blog is officially two years old!
So why the hell is my blog post about quitting blogging? Read on!
In some ways, I feel really awesome about this, but if I take a few moments to compare my blog to other blogs the same age, it’s seriously basic.
But just because it’s basic, doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate it.
I actually feel kind of bad, because I haven’t been giving my blog the time and energy it deserves.
Why I Thought About Quitting My Blog
In fact, I contemplated — all weekend — whether or not I would even renew my domain and keep things going on BPM.
Ultimately, I decided to because this has been a labor of love and has gotten me through so much and I want to continue.
I started this blog at a time when I really didn’t know what to do with my life. I had just passed my personal training certification exam. I was working at a job I didn’t love — or even like, really. I also had just come out of a draining relationship.
I thought starting a blog would be a great way to work through some of the stuff I had been struggling with and to help myself get to know myself better.
Since starting this blog, I have grown as a trainer and I have expanded my horizon with further education in health and behavioral wellness. I truly believe that I wouldn’t have done all of this had it not been for my passion for this blog and for finding my way.
One of the main reasons I thought about giving up this blog is that I am starting to really pick up my business and will soon be building a new business site which will soon become my main focus and where the majority of my time and energy will go beyond the people I work with in-person.
However, I remembered that this blog has pretty much saved me and I think it can still grow along with me.
It may not be mind-blowingly beautiful, technologically amazing, or that well-known, but it’s mine and it’s where I started.
I don’t like to turn my back on what I believe in and believe we should never forget our beginnings.
I’m not saying my blog will ever be anything more than it is right now.
But, I’m okay with that.[Tweet “Why I thought about quitting my blog and why I decided not to. #Blogging #MotivationMonday via @BeetsPerMinute”]
