Disclaimer: there are emotions in this post. Gasp!
I'm currently participating in a month long blogging challenge and to be honest it's a bit draining. I love challenges. They could be anything from running a marathon to writing a book but I have to feel like I'm growing or contributing to the world. I have written a few useful posts (1 & 2) that I've been meaning to write for a while but sometimes I feel like I'm posting just to post and that really bugs me.
It's Not About Software
I love my company because we make tools that help people make money online. We can give people so much power and customization. Every time I see an entrepreneur setup a WooCommerce shop I'm ecstatic. I love that people can make a living off of the tools that I help produce.
What I Want to Write
I haven't figured out what I want to write about. There's a gazillion issues in this world and all of them are important. I like empowering people, I want people to take chances, I want people to be financially stable, I want people to have loving relationships, I want people to understand how to communicate to get through struggles, and I want people to break out of their shell and do cool things.
I have technical knowledge about e-commerce which makes it pretty easy to write about that topic. It's been a good place for me to start but everything grows and changes. I want to break out of just e-commerce. I just don't know where to start. Do I keep expanding on ideas here? If I do write about happiness, or entrepreneurship, or love, will I lose focus here? Will people not understand what this site is about?
Truthfully, I think the best thing to do is write the occasional off-topic post somehow related to my existing topics and see how they go. Write about them for a while and see how much I like writing about those topics. We'll see.
