30 Days in - No longer afraid of Blogging
I’ve been a Premium Member on WA for one month now. I have met a lot of wonderful people. I want to thank everyone for all the help and contributions I’ve received through live chat, commenting and private messaging! I have completed my Affiliate site www.onlinemoneymaker.xyz. I am starting to get a little traffic. I'm excited about the upcoming training on the 25th about that very subject.
Before I came to WA, I knew nothing of Affiliate Marketing. I definitely didn’t know I could make real money online without having my own business & hard-products to sell. Most importantly, blogging was a phobia before I went through all the Training!
I don’t know why I had a phobia of blogging. I have never had difficulty writing in the past. Every time I went to write, something would always come to mind. Writing was actually one of my strong suites. Even in writing this blog, as I write it and you read it, is proving to be somewhat challenging. As I document what I want to say, I experience a sort of “thought-freeze”. My thinking just locks up like an engine that has blown a head gasket.
If I remove the “over-thinking” from the equation of blogging, I flow pretty well. Sometimes over-thinking gets ahead of my blogging and the brain-freeze occurs. I now have a problem of writing too much… lol.
When I realized blogging is like writing a letter home to mom about a specific topic, things changed. Blogging became fun. I had to trick my thinking at first with the “letter to mom” mentality. After a few blogs, my phobia is gone. I now enjoy writing to an unknown audience. Now writing a letter home to mom is more difficult than blogging.
Providing specific information for a range of people is challenging, but now fun. Once I compile all the data, piece it together and present it to the audience, I feel a great sense of accomplishment. As a Disabled Veteran, I don’t get many opportunities to feel accomplished. Writing something people want to know and are interested in reading is quite gratifying.
Each time I post a blog now, I am very proud of myself. Proud that I successfully completed it without “mind-lock” or a “brain freeze” occurring. That’s a big deal for me. I thrive on success in all I do. I am a major try hard.
I have much room to grow and I’m thankful that the training I need is at my disposal as is the people who can help me get there. I am happy to have come this far. Happy to have removed fear from the equation bloggin. I have come very far. A great thanks to all who contributed.
