I was never really here
I've been gone from here for a while. Dipping the toes back in is hard.
In some ways I feel as if I was never really here in the first place.
What do I mean by that?
When I first joined I was full of excitement and hope. Plans for the future, a new life. I was talking to new people all the time, making new friends.
Things happen though, to everyone, and we all have to deal with these problems when they arise.
I decided to step back from the community and try to build out my websites. Did it work? Yes and no! I started 3 American Football sites with the hope of getting sales through Amazon. I didn't and my Amazon affiliate code ran out after 180 days with no sales. I have started a new one but there is so much to do when changing the links.
I started a new website called The Bearded Brit and this has had some success earning me about £50 and gaining nearly 2k followers on Instagram since the end of April. I am now receiving free beard oil samples to review on my website which is an excellent position to be in. It is also the site where I got my first referral. He still hasn't upgraded to the awesome world of Premium yet but fingers crossed!! (Go follow Northwarden guys and say hi!)
My other 2 websites, The Football Shed and Free From The Boss suffered neglect due to the success of The Bearded Brit. I have begun blogging on my Football site and have changed it's appearance and I am going to restart my Free From site soon as well.
Busy, busy, busy as a bee! But I do miss thee.
I have missed the camaraderie with the community. I haven't been as attentive to people who say hello on my profile page and I haven't read or commented on others posts. There has been no greetings for new members like I used to do. I'm sorry for that and I will make an effort to be more active.
It's hard though. We juggle so many balls in our daily lives that we don't know which ones to drop so that we can continue to try and achieve our goals! How can we possibly fit everything in? (I know that some of you will say I have too many websites and you're right!)
So, what am I talking about? Yep, I've rambled on. It's not 18 pages front and back and I hope you haven't fallen asleep! (Friends fans will get it!)
What am I saying?
I guess what I am trying to say is that although I haven't been around for a while, I actually feel more like I belong here than I did before.
Yes, I need to make more of an effort than I have been. No, I don't need to blog everyday on here and I don't need or want to increase my rank. Although it will happen naturally, it's not a factor for me.
I was never really here before, but I am now!
All the best
