You should have noticed I have not posted anything in a couple weeks. I have hit a dry spot.

This dry spot is not one of a lack a material but one of a diminished desire as well as a feeling of a lack of focus along with confusion in approach as to where to take this site.

I obviously wish to be informative, educational, entertaining and more with this site but I also would like very much to eventually make some money for this endeavor. There are a variety of ways to do this through advertisers placing adds on the site, clickable links, products offered through the site as well as other means. I continually fight against the thought of “offering” a product and this of course lessens the possibilities to monetize the site. I just feel that there are so many that focus on pushing a product and that’s all they want to do.

This is the biggest reason that I have stepped away from the keyboard.

At this time I am on vacations to some really nice locations which I hope will eventually help me in determining or figuring out some ideas to work on and which way to head.

I feel like I have recently come across some other bloggers that will help me in getting whatever message I have out and I will be trying to help them get theirs out to my circle of influence.

Here is to hoping that stepping away for a little while is a productive time for me. If any of you have any ideas I would love to hear from you and you are my audience and the ones I write to.

  1. Hi Bryan,

    I’ve heard that many times before. You have to take blogging like a really long relationship that you have to nurture. Therefore, I would advise you to determine exactly what is it that you want to do. What is your passion? What do you want to tell the world?

    Take some time to think it over.

  2. It is beneficial at times to take a moment and reflect on whether you’re on the right path. I’ve done that myself…and when I get back into blogging I do it with a great passion and desire. You’ll find that if you keep writing about personal experience…you’ll absolutely love it. I have found that I write better if I write what I want, and not so much what I think others will be interested in.

      That is for that advice. I enjoy writing about personal things as I sure go through a lot with this large family that I am blessed with. There is always something going on. The if I throw those work experiences in it really adds to things I have to write about.

    Hi I saw your post on +1 and felt I must respond from my own experiences. I suggest that even though you are stepping back that you carry on posting occasionally, even if it is only one a fortnight/month.

    If you leave it longer it is so much harder to get back into the swing of things even though motivation and ideas may be flowing freely again. I have a site that did very well just sitting there because I do not know how to start again after it being dormant.

    As for monetizing, apart from advertising a few things like blog themes I did not think my site was suited to it. Nor did I want to market to my current audience. Instead I started a sub-domain which I use solely for affiliate marketing which is targeted at other affiliate marketers. I am selling to the already converted and not trying to push products and programs to my current readers.

    I went down the sub domain route to start with so that I could benefit from my original blogs ratings.
