So I never really loved the movie Field of Dreams as much as everyone else, or as much as I felt I should, but the lesson that is taught is a good one: Patience. Work hard, keep the faith, have patience—and it will come. It will. It's hard though because, well, I want it NOW. I'm not even entirely sure what it is anymore, but I know that I want it. I guess more than anything, I want to be passionate about my work and make a decent amount of money doing it. I want a little normalcy and consistency in my life. Is that so much to ask?!
I didn't like any of the photos from the movie (damn Google images!), so I chose this one. Pretty cool, huh?
I have admitted in the past that at some point, I think it would be really great if I could turn a little profit from this blog, but honestly, things have been so loco lately that I'm finding myself coming here to just relax and take a break from it all! The blog can be stressful sometimes (like when I'm trying to write two posts before work and I have serious writer's block), but I'm getting back to the place where it's more fun than anything else, and that makes me happy. So, I'm just going to keep building it, and I guess we'll just have to wait and see what comes!
I saw this video about blogging—and how to be successful at it— that supports the basic jist of what I've just said. It also encourages bloggers to ASK their readers what they want. I did that once and the main points you guys made were that you wanted: 1. To see more of ME 2. More gender neutral posts 3. More hot-button topics. I think I've done a pretty good job with working on those suggestions, but I probably could improve with #3. Hey, but I can't help it I like writing about random shit!
But tell me again what you think: What would you like to see more of on the bloggy-blog? And do you struggle with patience like I do?
