A blessed Jumuah Mubarak to you all, with only about a week left of Ramadaan, I just had to squeeze one more post in.For a while now I have felt like I should quit blogging, you either thinking, “well gee its about time!” or you’re thinking, “but why??”.
Here’s the deal, blogging has opened up an entirely new world for me, I have met moms who are my #momgoals and it has been so amazing. Not forgetting the amazing exposure to PR campaigns and blog events, it really is a very humbling feeling to get acknowledged by bloggers who have been doing this for eons, so that part I am so eternally grateful for.
Lest I not forget you guys! Those who faithfully follow and read my blog posts each week, giving me feedback, maybe not on the blog, but those who meet me in person, I doubt I could fully explain the capacity of gratitude that comes over me when this happens because that is why I started blogging in the first place, to share as unbiased as possible look into motherhood as a working mom because I felt that we all go through similar situations, and knowing that you are not alone really helps, as it helps me loads constantly.
However, in the same vein, this is also my passion and it is my business, blog posts take time to be written, campaigns are curated and I need to finance keeping my website running each month. So why do I feel like I want to quit blogging? Because sometimes I feel like the reason behind Official Dragon Mommy and the business side of things are not really what the public want. Why do I say this? Because as with anything in life, you notice that certain content gains more traction.
I will not post certain things to gain more views or likes, its like high school, you get the Popular kids and you get the geeks (Proud Geek over here!) and when you’re the popular kid, no matter what the geek does, the Popular kid usually trumps then where it concerns gaining an audience. So naturally if you doing something silly like pulling pranks, being completely out of pocket or shaking your ass, it will gain a following *Note: You will not be seeing me shake my ass. I’m sorry. #notsorry*
What point am I trying to make? That sometimes, just sometimes, I too want to sit at the cool table, to gain more exposure, to see Official Dragon Mommy up there in lights but I cannot do it at the expense of my soul. It’s not who I am as a person and it sure as hell is not who I am trying to portray myself as to the world. So yes, sometimes I feel like just quitting because whats the point in posting all the time? Why sit late nights thinking of topics to post and what to write? The answer is simple, because of YOU.
Yes, you beautiful people make it worth it. Whether it is commenting on a post, meeting me in person and saying that what I wrote made a difference in your life, that is why I won’t be quitting anytime soon. So yeah, my growth might be small, I may only grow by a few followers or only have those who just pop by to read an article or two, but that’s okay for me.
I may not be sitting at the cool table, but that’s okay, the cool never bothered me anyway. *ahahahahahaha, lol, I just had to channel Frozen, I’m sorry*
