Why I Stopped Blogging!

It has been a while since I posted. I decided to stop blogging because it had been very overwhelming trying to figure out what to write and post. I did not know how to really get feedback about what readers wanted. I tried at one failed attempt of posting a poll survey on my blog. I did not get a single answer. It was disheartening so I did not dare do it again.

 It was also difficult trying to blog so frequently. I found myself bringing tired and in pain working for hours a day trying to create posts and keep up with others. Even though I spent all this time blogging I  could get a hundred views per post or gain a substantial amount of followers.

Seeing others continue to grow followers, finances, and experience was also hard at times to see. I was happy for them but it still hurt to see others doing so well while I was struggling. I wanted to the same thing but did not really seem to be getting anywhere even with all the hard work.

I also did not really know how much it took to blog. I thought it was simple to do and that I knew what I was doing.  But there were a lot of things I did not know. I did not understand, how to use social media, or what tools I needed to use. I was really in over my head. It took me a while to figure that out.

But I finally decided to give blogging another try because I really feel that things can change and get better. I also learned to work smarter and not harder. That is why I am posting only a few times a month. I do not want to experience burn out again or experience such frustration.  This also enables me to research, promote, and engage more. It also allows me to focus on other projects I have going on, spend time with my family, and just relax.
