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.”
