Monday and My Plan

I'll be the first to admit: my posts have been a bit angst ridden lately. Sort of wishy-washy, what should I do, searching for purpose, all over the place dribble.

Yeah, harsh I know, but necessary dear reader, because if I'm sick of it; I know you are.

No longer willing to be the Debbie Downer, I have properly licked my wounds, gave myself a good mental shake and resolved to no longer be buffeted around the blogosphere like some poor helpless ninny.
Somewhere along the way, I drank the "Make Money Blogging" Kool-Aid and this stopped being fun.

I like fun; so here's my plan.

1. Stop Whining.

2. Count my blessings. They are plentiful.

3. Quit Sweating the small stuff.

4. Wholesale delete all money/social media/pro's emails and feeds. They are my kryptonite.

5. Keep doing product reviews. I still think they are fun!

6. Hang out with like minded bloggers.

7. Stop trying to do it all.

8. Write what I know. Followers and money will come if they are meant to.

9. Visit every blog on my readers list, if it's not a good match or of interest to me. Stop following.

10. Invite all my followers to do the same. If you are here and don't wish to read about and talk about all things hearth and home, raising tweens, running a small home based business while being happily married, please feel free to stop following me.

Simple. Action. Plan.

To those who actually read this blog and comment: Thank you! You are a rarity in this blogging community. And if I should find myself without many like you over the course of the next few days or weeks, so be it. I  rather enjoy knowing where I stand and with whom.

Happy Monday.


  1. Your kryptonite...I love that! As for writers, the kryptonite is getting an agent. I went through deleting a lot of 'agent' blogs a while ago and had to think about why I was really blogging. It's so easy to get 'off message'.
    Glad you made it through and can see light at the end of the tunnel!

  2. Hi Donna,
    I too am so glad I can see the light at it's not an oncoming train! :-)) No, all kidding aside, I think we all hit the wall at some point, it was my turn. Blogging is a time consuming endeavor and it's very tricky to stick with it without some sort of reward. It's a day by day thing to be sure.
    Good for you on deleting those agent blogs!


I'd love to hear from you!
