Blogging What Da F***

Of course, the last time I blogged was on August 23, 2022, regarding the 10 commandments of blogging and one of them was “Blog Often”, well I think I totally blew that commandment. I think it can be safe to assume that I was going through one of those moments, well wait, it was one of my down moments, so that meant that I really did not want to do anything.

The funny thing is that I realize that topics regarding side hustles, side businesses, and extra income are huge with people and I get the most likes from those posts. Take for example my post on Etsy, just recently called “Etsy Business – Follow Up” it got quite a few likes compared to my other posts.

What gets to me is that there are millions of blogs, websites, single capture pages, and social media videos on doing a side business and people just like to read about them. I mean I know maybe posts like this do not hit people like the side business posts, but shouldn’t we read different types of information?

That is just crazy, but you know I will keep writing what I like, and try and post more often, and maybe just maybe I can get the momentum to begin writing my short fiction stories. It is just a matter of me getting motivated enough to take that first step.

Anyhow the reason I am writing is that I have not posted anything online, meaning I did not take my own advice, so I am simply trying to make a point. Life might be tough, and sometimes things will get in our way of progress, but we need to hunker down, well I need to hunker down and get back in the grove, maybe I need a to-do list – I do not know, I need something.

So, I am still looking at my Etsy account and so far, no-sells, but I will keep an eye on it and keep you posted. The thing is not to give up. Oh, by the way, I applied for a new job and went through several interviews, including a panel interview and it seemed that everything went well. I mean the very next day I got a call from the recruiter letting me know they want to move forward with an offer, that was two days ago – so I guess I will not believe it until I see it.

That sounded weird, because I have been with my current employer for 18 years and it seems weird to possibly leave them – can comprehend that right now, and I really do not want to because I have not seen the offer letter. I will keep you posted on that as well.

I am humbled that you stopped by and read my post, I hope it brought some sense of reflection that we all go through low points in our lives and it is just a matter of getting up and stepping forward. With that, I leave you with this thought, “Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around – Henry David Thoreau.”

Strange but true, I was born in San Salvador, as an abroad US citizen. It sounds strange, but you see, my mother was 5 months pregnant and happen to be visiting San Salvador. She slipped and fell in a pool and well, I was born. I am a twin, but unfortunately, he did not make and I did. My mother’s side of the family happens to be well of, and I had the opportunity to live a nice life early in my childhood. You know, private school, servant, nice home, and vacations. Things change when my mother decided to follow my father to the United States and well, that is where my story begins. I started a blog a while back, but life sort of hit and I left it behind, but now as I am a bit older, I decided I needed an avenue to share my experiences with others, while at the same time allowing me to open up and talk like I am on someone’s couch, I guess you could say. This blog will be more like an open book, created by experiences that I have had throughout my life. Experiences that many could relate to and what I did or how I handled it, you know after the fact. You never know there just might be a piece of information, idea, an option that someone could use and it would help them through the experience. Just remember these are my experiences, things I have been through, work through, and lived through – it does not mean I am right, but it does not mean I am wrong – it is simply an experience.
