A Month of Blogging

A Month of Blogging

Well it’s been a month of blogging for me. I started this blog on May 27th, 2008. I was totally new to the world of blogging. Just like with my weight loss, I wish I had before and after pictures of my blog. I am generally pleased with my blog progress. It was helpful to keep reminding myself from time to time with what I wrote in my blog post titled “How do you create a BLOG?“, and that is to keep working on it a little at a time every day.

I have been impatient at times with different aspects of my blogging ever since I started JB’s Weblog. At times I have been impatient with developing blog traffic. Though I have made good progress in bringing more visitors to my blog. At times I have been impatient with learning the “how to” in designing a blog. Though in hindsight I guess I did pretty well in designing my blog. At times I have also been impatient with deciding what direction to take my blog, including the last couple of days. Thankfully I read an article yesterday that has helped me put “things” in perspective. This article “Patience is a Virtue” was written by fellow blogger Jenny Mannion. So in regards to my blog’s direction, I guess I did fairly well, and I will be patient in “finding” which path to take it on.

I believe I need to do the following in order to continue good blog growth. I need to continue to have fun with learning blog design and writing good blog posts. I need to continue and expand trusting my judgment with blog design and writing. I need to understand that it is o.k. if I don’t have all the blogging answers.

All in all I have enjoyed my blogging experience, and I have enjoyed using this free hosted blog software from WordPress.com. Obviously I am not a blog expert, but if I can, I would be glad to try to help new WordPress.com bloggers. Drop me a line, and I will see what I can do.

Detaching myself from the blog traffic outcome

Detaching/Blog Traffic

I can not be patient with patience. I need to work on being patient. Sometimes I have been disappointed with the amount of traffic that I have received to my blog. This is kind of or just downright silly considering that I started this blog a week ago. Obviously it will take time to build traffic.

With “looking for the good” in this situation, my strong desire for acceptance is forcing me to express myself through writing. I am pleasantly surprised with how much that I enjoy writing. I think this blog will be very therapeutic for me on several levels.

All in all – if the blog genie asked me, John, would you rather have one hundred a day thoughtful, intelligent visitors with a half-dozen comments or five hundred a day random visitors with no comments – I would say to the blog genie – send me the one hundred.

Here’s a little duality regarding my patience and impatience, being and becoming. I regularly listen to Brian Tracy’s “The Science of Positive Focus” so I can learn how to be what I want to be. I also regularly listen to Wayne Dyer’s “Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life – Living the Wisdom of the Tao”, so I can learn how to just be.
