The Blog Hustle

How many times have you read posts about making thousands from your blog?

I’ve used various blogging media for years now but it seems that I come across more of those make lots of money posts now than before.

One day I will invest enough in my blog to monetize it and allow it to serve as an additional source of income

But that’s the issue! I have to seriously engage and invest in my blog to make the money worthwhile.

This is why I loathe those get rich from your blog articles…many deny the amount of time, energy and preparation that goes into for profit blogging

There’s also the issue with choosing which identifiers the blog will highlight.

As a reader I appreciate knowing that Blog Whatever by Blogger Whomever writes about Topic One always.

For a fact, my unfocused blog would drive me crazy as a reader!!!

And yet, I write about whatever I feel like.

My blog is like those journals I used to keep out in the open in my room

I would only put surface level material in those journals just in case someone decided to read it!

Yes, my blog entries are vague enough to give you something to read…yet make you wonder about the person behind the words.

It almost feels like you’re getting to know something about me…while simultaneously feeling a bit detached!

I’ve read quite a bit about how to make thousands from your blog and I break those rules quite frequently on this very blog

I completely appreciate you reading the garb I write and just like those old journals

This blog is a wonderful outlet – even if I purposely write with the thought that someone may read it and I love privacy.

I may never make thousands from blogging but I truly enjoy writing with the expectation that YOU may read it.

Thank you for reading my garb and If you are indeed making thousands from your blog – I applaud your persistence and dedication

Highlight identifiers

Like everyone else I have several identifiers…like many others I ponder which identifiers to highlight while blogging.

My very first blog was on Tumblr and I focused exclusively on chronic illnesses and coping.

After so long I felt smothered by the constant posts around chronic illness. Plus the cyber support was overwhelming

After thinking about it, I let the blog go and steered clear of blogging for years.

I do enjoy writing and to an extent I enjoy sharing my thoughts

However I dislike the tunnel of what my blog is defined by. I am more than any one of my attributes.

How do you choose which identifiers to highlight while blogging?


In the United States, many messages are received about success. These messages vary, however, many of these messages assume that everyone starts at the same position.

One look at the adult population in the United States, it’s easy to see that there are several starting points.

Success? What does it mean to you?

Explanation, necessary?

I have little desire to explain my position on x, y, or z; after all I’m not campaigning for political office nor attempting to win your favor.

I share whatever I desire to share and keep the rest for my life outside of cyberspace

I enjoy reading many different blogs and care little whether the blogs tell a comprehensive story.

I have little desire to share my positions, viewpoints on a, b, or c; however, I enjoy sharing little tidbits like this with you.

Because of you

Thank you for all of your likes and follows.

I’m still working on finding a way to streamline my blog.

Time is still limited but those moments when I have something that I must share with everyone who stumbles upon my posts, I purposely carve out a moment to do so.

Thanks again for all of your support
