A Probable Change In Plans

Last Update: January 22, 2015

Hello there, everybody! I just wanted to let you know that I will probably be switching niches from "Christians and mixed martial arts" to some sort of philosophical niche that I haven't quite got a name for (it's going to be focused on "the ultimate human", which is something that will take me a lifetime to fully explain, as well as understand myself)... and I won't be promoting my niche through a website; I'll be having a daily podcast published on Soundcloud, and I'll be very active on Twitter (which is where I'll be making my money.)

My reasons for making this decision:
1: I don't think I'll be able to write about mma for my entire life (especially because I'm not pursuing a career in it)
2: Focusing on Soundcloud and Twitter would allow me to spend more time creating quality content and less time managing a website
3: "The ultimate human" (which is essentially going to be a very, very long series of podcasts with the ultimate goal of bringing glory to God) is two things: #1, a way for me to curb my obsession (not really) with superheroes, and #2, a way for me to do a lot of philosophical thinking, which is something I love to do
4: I'd be able to manage almost all of my business from my phone, which would be incredibly useful for me (I'm on the go quite often)
5: "The ultimate human" would last me my entire life, and based off of the plans I have laid out for it, the content would line up almost perfectly with my general needs/desires at every point in life

So... what do you guys think? Should I make this decision?
P.S. I probably won't be calling my podcast series "The ultimate human", and this is in no way some sort of Nazi-perfection-perspective; I'm not going to be encouraging anyone to radically change who they are. I'm mostly going to be talking about my opinions on, well, mankind and his relation to life, and I hope to spark a lot of interesting discussions when I do.

I just left a comment on your website. It's a big decision like ttho said, pray about it, serious. You're young yet, is this podcast something you can try for a while, and if you feel you are being called back to the MMA, you can still do that? When I was in my 20s, I had to make a decision of either taking a government job that had great benefits, but I knew 9 people in that position, they hated it, only 1 ended up staying. I ended up having my own business. I didn't make as much as I would have with the govt, but I sure enjoyed my work. I felt good about what I did. Life is full of tough decisions. Ask God where He wants you, where He will be glorified the most. His will be done.

Thank you for the comment! I'll respond to it tomorrow. Thank you so much for the encouragement, advice, sharing of life experiences, and so forth, it really means a lot to me. And after a lot of thinking/praying (I think I was going back and forth between prayer and deep meditation/thinking), I have decided to move forward with my plans; I'm going to start up the daily podcast and Twitter endeavors. I will be keeping my site on hand, though, just in case (and I did buy the domain, so it would be kinda silly to get rid of it so quickly.)

I have prayed about it, and I believe I know what I'm going to do: I'm going to do the podcast/Twitter thing. However, this does not mean that I'm going to be deleting my site; I'm going to keep it just in case, and I did pay for a year of it "existing".
Oh and thank you so much for the encouragement!

I agree! Thank you again for the encouragement (I really don't know where I would be without Wealthy Affiliate and its community.)

Different website marketing suits different people. For me, I am more into article marketing and backlinking. :)
Do what fits yr personalities and time schedules.:)
Podcast marketing is another great way too. :)

Very interesting. WA is a place for website building and affiliate connections. Do you see yourself staying here?

Well, considering that I'll technically still be an affiliate marketer through Twitter (they do have affiliate programs for Twitter), I probably will. And there's also the fact that WA has a TON of information which will be useful regardless of whether or not I decide to make this decision.

Thanks, it's good to know I'm appreciated. And it's also a reminder as to how many people I've helped here on Wealthy Affiliate, which is something I love doing... so I don't know if I'll ever leave.
