Human beings are a funny lot. They have a tendency to use the words, “some day,” way too often. As a matter of fact a lot of wishes have gone unfulfilled simply for a lack of effort or fear of trying.
I have talked to a lot of people about blogging over the last couple years. Some already have a blog that they update at least twice a year. They still call in a blog. Some say they are thinking about blogging. Some say they would like to blog. Some say they are going to start one, some day.
All of them see the potential in blogging. Very few actually put the effort into creating a successful blog.
Blogging isn’t hard. It’s just time-consuming. There is a learning curve. There are things you have to know and hoops you have to jump through before it really starts clicking with you.
I have been messing around with website since I was 14 years old. I thought I had a firm grasp of the internet, until I got serious about blogging for money. Then I realized there is a whole lot I didn’t understand and even more I had no concept of whatsoever.
So I started reading. I researched. And then I started a blog. I got a few readers, and then got distracted by life and forgot about it. I’m sure that first blog of mine is out there somewhere. I just can’t remember what it was called or where it was hosted.
I read some more. Saw some people who were being successful and deep down wished I could do the same. But I was busy with life, and with ministry. So I started a few more blogs and a couple of internet stores. Made a little bit of money but, again, was too busy to stick with it.
