So I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and a lot of goal setting in the past few weeks, especially when it comes to blogging. I’ve started doing some chats and interacting more and I’ve been seeing a common trend of people worrying about making their blogs unique and standing out among a world of hundreds of thousands.. of which only a handful are really “successful”. I think the most important thing is to realize that just by being yourself in this world of blogging, your website and your photos and your posts are bound to be unique. Even if the same topics circle around the community, everybody has a slightly different view.
In the past I’ve measured my success off of views and interactions, etc. but I’ve decided to change my focus. I love to blog, to write, and to express my creative side. Working at a desk in a business world I don’t often get to come up with fun new things and figure out a way to express it that other people will like. So instead of focusing on the outcome, I’m going to start reaching out of my comfort zone a little more, going for new, crazy goals, and put everything I have into doing what I love and have fun with it. I encourage all of you to do the same, because there’s nothing that feels better than having fun doing what you enjoy – whether it’s blogging or any other hobby – and that should be how success is defined! Everything else comes in time.
Are you a blogger? How do you define success for your goals?
