What do you put before blogging?
For some reason, most bloggers have terrible problems because this amount puts practically EVERYTHING before blogging.
Have it if you are. Blogging plans dissolve into the ether. You wanted to blog. But by no means could you miss the latest game from your favorite team. Something has just fallen on Netflix; Time to put your blog on hold. You want to blog, but feel way too tired to type on your laptop. The list of excuses is growing.
Why do you expect success when blogging takes a back seat? I drove almost 8 hours today. What did I do when I got to my location at 2:30 a.m.? I tried to sleep. But I felt overwhelmed. Of course I wrote a blog post and this guest post.
I have personal development first and then blogging. I put blogging before Netflix, Hulu, Gossip and YouTube. I've put blogging in front of most things. How could I ever become a professional if I undo blogging?
Blogging reflects your commitment to blog back to you 100% of the time. If you place practically everything before blogging, your struggle, failure and quitting are guaranteed. Full-time bloggers who blog part-time often put everything before blogging, such as: jobs, nightly TV time, internet streaming time, gossip time, time out with friends, etc. etc. etc. How do you expect to leave your job ? Become a professional blogger if you prioritize practically everything before blogging?
Catch yourself before you apologize. Build a vision of your fun and free the manifested dream life. Why do I blog after 8 hours of driving without sleep? I love freedom. I love traveling around the world through blogging. Of course, I put blogging before almost anything, except thinking, because professional bloggers who crave freedom do everything they can to be generous, dedicated, patient, and persistent bloggers. I have to do that. Otherwise I would never have become a professional blogger.
Blogging gives you what you give blogging. Make practicing no effort at blogging. Blogging gives you practically nothing back. Don't blame blogging. Blame yourself. Life gets tough sometimes. Busy mothers and fathers from the family who also work full-time feel overwhelmed in a few moments. But either you put blogging in front of almost everything else – except job and family – or you don't.
You may feel exhausted after working a 10-hour day and spending part of the evening with the family. But at 10pm, you have a choice: take 30 minutes to write and publish a blog post, or go to bed, watch Netflix, or laze in front of the TV. If you sleep 30 minutes longer before blogging, Netflix and TV become a professional sleeper, a Pro Netflix watcher and a Pro TV watcher. You certainly won't become a professional blogger if you place these activities before blogging.
I can't allow you to make excuses, people. Not my way. I am compassionate. I'm honest. I'm telling the truth. I'm not lying when it comes to blogging.
Put blogging before hobbies, television and streaming. Imagine that you gave your 9-5 job the effort you put into blogging? You will be fired 1 day after your 9-5 job. Take blogging seriously. Focus on your fun, liberating blogging driver. No blogger is lazy, but bloggers need to be clear about blogging in order to have fun, freedom, and fulfillment.
Blogging for fun and freedom resolves all excuses. Blogging becomes a priority in a split second as a professional gig blogging or blogging spins around the world from home. Nothing beats freedom. I am grateful that I can make this blogging gig professional when I go back to the travel game.
Stop placing everything before blogging. Make blogging a priority. Blogging gives you what you give blogging.
