On November 26, 2014 I created my first post on WordPress and hit publish. And 4 years later I am still at it; tired, but still blogging. And until recently I had posted every day for over 1500 days, a streak that I am quite proud of having achieved. I went from a daily view high of 149 in March 2015 to having days I clearly 5,000 views. I went from 0 views to over 1 million views in under 3 years which resulted in over 100,000 comments! I will admit that I am incredibly proud of having reached and exceeded all of my blogging goals including eclipsing 50,000 total followers. All of these numbers mean one thing…I am tired.
Honestly, I am worn out.
So with that said some changes are coming for Dream Big. At the end of this year I will be terminating the Partner program. I will not be publishing a post everyday, excluding the Let Me Ask You A Question post, and I will be reblogging on a limited basis. I need to do these things because blogging has become a habit, something I do out of routine with little passion behind it.
I will be posting my thoughts from time-to-time, but I’ll be doing it when I find inspiration or have a thought I’d like to share, not because I feel like I need to post something. I just want blogging to be fun again and I want to control my page instead of feeling as though my page controls me.
Writing a blog is an interesting journey and it has been so much fun watching this thing take on a life of its own. Dream Big has developed into something that I never envisioned which is a hub for others to connect. When I first began my blog I thought I would share some thoughts on my journey from an underachieving procrastinator to an entrepreneur. What I didn’t realize then was how many bloggers would use my page to find other like-minded people.
I might take more pride in this fact than any other.
