It’s been a long time coming, but I think I finally found my way back to bizchickblogs.com and its roots. In the 2 1/2 (nearly three) years that this blog has been running, it has experienced some amazing ups and downs. It has been profitable, popular, fun, frustrating, and even dangerous (ask me about our malware incidents sometime).
At the heart of any successful blog is a blog owner who loves the blog passionately and with abandon. Yes, there are some really successful “websites with articles” that make tons of money and get tons of traffic and pass as “blogs” but we all know they are not blogs. They are not blogs at the heart.
bizchickblogs was walking dangerously close to that line, and even tiptoed over the line a few times. You know you’re there when you are seriously questioning whether you should even continue with your blog – even when it’s making money. When your blog just becomes a money-making vehicle for you, and you get nothing from it, and it’s become more a burden than a creative outlet – run.
Nearly a year ago, I began working full time in finance operations for what I consider the very best company in the world. Before that, I was self-employed for nearly three years. I had lots of time to run a great blog and make friends online and build enviable social media followings. I never imagined that working in a corporate environment again would change all that, but it did.
For the better.
It just took awhile for me to see that. So once I finally did see it, it was just a matter of starting over. Traditionally, spring is associated with fresh starts, but I am going to make autumn the new beginning for bizchickblogs, and for communicating with other women and men who value growing, succeeding, pursuing happiness, and leaving a legacy in every aspect of their lives.
I thank you for sticking with this blog all this time and encourage you to subscribe and join me on this journey. I am looking forward to it.
