My Blog is really in the hole!

I have been doing some long and hard thinking about my blog today...

My mind has been focusing on post quality and my reasons for writing. The conclusion I have come to may be similar to yours. I have lost sight of why I am writing. I use to enjoy writing, but now all I think about is the money I make from the sponsored posts. I have no feeling about the topics anymore.

In an effort to make things right I am only going to make a max of one sponsored post a day. This effort will weed out the chance of junk posts. I make junk posts -like the last Heroes- post because I need to have a regular post between the sponsored ones. With my new rule, I can put some thought into my posts and still make money. I feel better about myself this way.

Good plan. Things can get very dry fast if your not writing about something that interests you. I have a friend who does the blogs for pure money, and SEO hacks etc etc.. And when I see his sites I just want to close my browser. There's nothing fun about re-posts with 300 different ads on the page and no passion in the writing!

As you read, I really lost the joy of writing. It wasn't fun to write when I only thought of money. Lately I have been posting no payed posts. It has been good. Thanks for commenting.
