I’ve been blogging for two years and I must say, I’m getting a bit burnt out and frustrated. Mostly because, I’m still just blogging. I don’t know how to take it further. The next step. If there even is a next step for me.
I had been hoping to learn what to do and where to go with blogging while in Chicago for Blogher (and I almost just put a hashtag there!) but I didn’t learn much. Except that it’s entirely possible to lose your iPhone while in a limo. And also entirely possible to get it back because people are good and decent. I also learned that it’s interesting because my blog friends totally match the type of people I’m friends with in real life. And I learned a TON about behavior and competition.
But I didn’t learn what to do about my blog.
Yet, I’m not sure what it is that I’m expecting to do about my blog. So that makes it difficult.
I want to write. I’ve always wanted to write. I used to buy notebooks from Gail’s Office Supply, along with import mags from England that were all about Duran Duran but anyway…
I stopped and started more stories in those notebooks than I have diet failures under my belt. Because I didn’t know what to do with them. The stories. I can never figure out where to go with what I have.
The same goes with my blog.
What do I do with it when I want more?
Where do I go to find more?
What EXACTLY is more?
Not to sound sour grapes-ish. Yet it will. I feel like I’m in a casino and every other machine is hitting some sort of jackpot around me. And my machine is just keeping me hanging on. Up. Down.
That’s what’s happening. So many of my wonderful blog friends are taking their blogs and going to greater heights.
What am I not doing right?
Anyone? Any ideas for me? Please. Because I really could use some guidance.
