Too much research, not enough work…

I have spent way too much time researching the right way to blog. You know, so I can generate all that awesome side hustle money.

Not sure if you have heard, but some people make a ton of money blogging. I’ve been hoping to join the crowd in an effort to enjoy the extra cash!

Turns out that creates a lot of pressure to make your blog look a certain way, posts that bring great value to your readers, and tons of analytics. So, that just lead me down the rabbit hole of “how to” and “this is exactly how I got 10k views my first month blogging” type posts.

These people post some really good stuff, but a lot lead to selling a class or their book. This is really good for the business side, and I give them kudos for making it happen! Not sure that is what I’m looking for though.

There are a few that really do post some great content on life, and how to get the most out of it. That’s what I have really been looking for!

Too much business, not enough real. I get enough of business at work. What I really want is the real!

Thus, my change in focus. No longer am I going to focus so much on making the perfect site, or even the best content.

I’m happy with the way the site is looking, so done with that. I feel like I know just enough that if I want to monetize the site I could.

Now, it’s time to actually focus on writing. That was what I wanted to do all along. Rather than regurgitating the trendiest topic, I’m going to write about what’s really going through my head and life.

Also, going to start turning my day dreams into short stories. That should make for an interesting project.

I’m hoping readers appreciate this approach, and eventually I think they will.
