When I look back at my blogging journey and particularly my statistics page, I cant help but wonder what was I thinking? I remember feeling so unsatisfied, always striving for more which can be a good thing. But I was never happy with the amount of comments, likes and follows I received. My audience was too small, not engaged enough. I don’t have enough writers or enough posts. Nowadays, I look back and say how did I get there?
If only I had those numbers again.
It’s a never ending battle really.
More importantly, how did I achieve all that and not stop to enjoy the moment. How did I forgot to take a step back from ambition and say this is pretty great- I’ve got a good thing going? How did I overlook the many fantastic writers we featured and the amazing group of bloggers that consistently read our blog?
I guess the lesson is to take a moment and step back and appreciate where you are, how far you have come, and how much work and sacrifice it took to get there. Even if you are not where you want to be, you are further along than you were.
In what ways are you already successful?
