They say progress isn’t linear. Well that’s what not was on my mind a few hours earlier before seeing the meme I will share with you below. Yes, this is how I currently look like deep inside.
I’ve had The Macho Mom for almost 10 years, and Kikaysikat for almost 20 years. Honestly, with their high domain authority (DA), and hundreds of content, I’ve been complacent that it would be enough to keep them on the top spot.
But no, something strange changed this year, when 2024 began. Is it Google? Did they make any changes on their SEO? It is. Sure, my traffic dropped. The drop in traffic made me realize something important. I forgot the love and passion I had for writing.
It’s true what they say, do not make a job out of your hobby, or else you’ll need to find something else to do that you’ll enjoy. This is true.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my job. I love writing for Metro Creative. It’s my dream job ever since. It’s my calling.
But finding work, made me forget about my blogs. My babies.
I was too occupied on making a living that I forget my life here.
Basically, what I wanted to say is, we all have our ups and downs and sometimes, in reaching your goal, there are times we hit rock bottom.
So I talked to myself (yes lol), and took an oath that I’ll commit on posting a minimum of 2 stories on each website, each week. YES. By hook or by crook. I even made a spreadsheet content calendar thingie!
Maybe having structure will help me stay consistent. When I was younger, I could write 5-8 articles in a day! Well, that’s because I was technically jobless and hyper-caffeinated. Now, I’m almost forty, employed, a solo parent, and a gym buff. I should never forget, that I’m also a writer by heart.
