Seven Months, And Yes I Am Still Here
Last Update: Sep 21, 2016
I cannot believe it it seven months since I found this community and decided to join. In that time I have decided on a niche, created a website, and worked on the training. However, in this past month my website and my activity within the WA community have been lacking a little.
You may have noticed that you haven't seen me responding as much to posts that others have written. You may have also noticed that my WA ranking has gone down (insert sad face). I know that our ranking within WA has nothing to do with our website and making money, but for me it was a motivation to move up in the ranks. I also was happy when I reached the top 200!
So why have I not been as active on WA and my website has been neglected? Believe me that was not intentional. I started my new job on August 15th, and I have been very busy with that. A lot busier than I thought i would be, even in the evenings! I am teaching preschool after all, so it's not like I have papers to grade.
My family has also been busy on the weekends. This year, it seemed like we had more going on on the weekends than we have in the past. So that has taken away some time from spending on email and interacting with you all and giving my website the attention it needs.
I wrote a post a while back about needing to find balance, and I am definitely needing to find that balance again. However, this weekend I will not be spending any time on my website and probably no time on here either, as my niece is getting married!
Although, my creativity and motivation have been lacking a little lately, I know that I do not want to give up on this community or my website. I have an important message to share, and want to continue to pursue it! I will find that creativity, motivation, and balance!
I felt this quote fit where I am at right now very well!
At night, by the time I get home and get dinner, I am ready to just relax and not think about anything. I am loving my job and much happier than I was a year ago! That is a definite positive and maybe it will help renew the creativity and motivation.
I wanted to drop a line and let everyone know that I am still here, just have not been able to be as active! I do wish I could say it is because I have been busy with my website, but that is not the case! It is my job that has been keeping me from being active and giving my site the TLC it deserves. I will figure it all out, though!
I just want to say thank you for always being there to lift me up or celebrate with me! You all are the best!
I like yr post, thanks for sharing, great quote, so true, Denise, I remembered yr kind encouragement! :)
I am happy that you are so happy in your day job Denise, it really does make a huge difference to your life, and don't worry, the WA community will be here, waiting for you to come back, with outstretched arms, when you want a little warmth and the creativity wheels start up again.:-))Steph
Nice, you have done well. and keep working on your dreams.
Proud to be your friend. keep up the good work. with family, work and WA.
I admire your dedication....so sorely lacking in the education field. Teaching preschool and opening young minds to the world, it is an ominous task. Don't believe your inspiration is lacking, it is quietly working in the background....keep pen/paper/recorder/whatever handy for those 'bursts' that come here and there.
Thank you so much! I really do enjoy being with the kids every day, although today they really wore me out!
We're always here to support one another Denise! When you have questions regarding your site, you know how to PM me :)
Just keep taking it a step at a time, Denise. If you don't quit, you'll reach your destination. The time-frame is unimportant. :)
