At least some of my blogs are looking better these days, since my motivation returned to me. For months after my move and the sudden breakup of my relationship, I wasn’t doing anything except pretending to work.Thankfully, with my line of work, money still comes in despite my inability to do anything productive at times… and so my bills are paid – but it hasn’t been the most prosperous year ever.
Did I mention I no longer have a car to drive? That I’ve joined the life of the walkers?
Anyhow… I prayed that I’d get some work motivation back, and during this last month of the year, it is finally here – Thank You GOD… I needed that! Of course, He knows what I need. Always!
I’m staying busy every day, almost all day long, working on these blogs. I need to make enough money this coming year to pay off bills, pay for my so-called “Affordable Care” insurance, and save for another car. Oh yes, I do intend to dig myself out of this pit. With God’s help, of course – it can’t be done any other way.
Okay, here’s the good news… I’ve written twenty-two blog articles since the 20th of December. That’s a good showing, for me!
I’m still trying to upgrade blogs, install the best plugins, and get everything properly maintained.
I just spent the last 2 days doing a massive overhaul on EFT Joy, an energy healing site of mine. It was so out of date and in need of help!
I have forty blogs and need to focus on the blogs that are getting visitors and capable of earning money.
Hobby blogs are entirely secondary… and I’ve never earned money with anything that’s on blogspot.com … I love the blogger.com interface but monetarily, it just doesn’t work for me.
These days frequent updates are a necessity so a blog will get noticed on Google BlogSearch – and sometimes even that isn’t enough.
I really want to get to where I can write five blog postings per day, create one new Squidoo lens, plus spend an hour working on one of my novel editing projects. I hope I’m not wanting too much, but I yearn for that level of productivity. Please God, may I achieve and maintain it!
But for now, so much blog maintenance is needed, my writing opportunity is at a snail’s pace.
Tomorrow is the last day of 2013, and honestly, I’ll be happy enough to see it go. I love every piece and bit of life, but 2013 was a sad year of letting go and separation and moving on. Really emotionally devastating on many levels. I don’t want to go into details here, but just want to say I’m glad that year is over. It led me to Christ… there’s something good… a sparkly silver lining… and I’m hoping 2014 will be a happier time for one and all.
If it includes a new car, that would be pretty awesome, but first I have to prove to myself that I can afford it. Right now, I can’t.
God willing, I will someday be able to drive again. For right now, I’m just grateful that I can blog again!
See you next year!
