I have a confession: It’s not easy for me to talk about my blog.
Even after years of blogging, I still have to muster the courage to continue the conversation when the topic of “so, you have a blog?” arises.
So why all the embarrassment?
With Labor Day meaning an extra day off for us nine-to-fivers, a tempting thought came across my mind: I should skip blogging this week.
But my conscience soon kicked in. “Don’t let your readers down. They’re counting on a post from you come Tuesday.”
Then I had an epiphany. Do my readers (that’s you!) count on a blog post from me around the holidays?
So I came up with a balanced compromise: I’ll write a blog post about this.
I discovered WordPress categories once I stopped being stubborn. I’ve always seen it housed snugly under Posts in the sidebar. I’ve always seen it prominently displayed in the blog post tool editor above Tags.
I just chose to ignore it. And do I regret it.
Thanks to my fans for your patience while I took a month-long hiatus! This blog post explains that I wasn’t being lazy during my time away from KLWightman.com.
In fact, I was conducting a digital data experiment—and here are the results.
After almost five years, I think it’s safe to say that I’m a blogger. Not a famous one and not a paid one—nevertheless, I’m still a blogger.
I’ve been asked over the years why I keep doing it. They ask, “If you’re not getting paid, then why waste your time?”
Paying for stock photos is the safest way to go. But is it the right investment for your website or blog? It all comes down to this.
