Why I Struggle to Keep My Blog Alive

I find that I am guilty of jumping from one thing to the next without finishing the first task at hand. In fact, that’s one of those things my dad fought with me about all the time while I was growing up. He would say, “If you’re not going to do it right the first time, don’t bother starting.” But I have to start.

This is the reason my mom and one of my best friends only have one handmade mitten. I started, crochet one BEAUTIFUL mitten, and moved on to the next task. (started a scarf, blanket, hat, etc.)

I’m sure everyone is guilty of this, at least a little bit.

And then there are those things that you start and have to finish. Like college. I do not pay $900 a semester to drop out halfway through a class, so I can’t give up. Is that stubbornness or motivation?

Where does THAT effort come from? There is a point that I hit about 2 weeks ago where I just lose it. I am no longer on top of my classes, but rather trying to go through each class one day at a time. Instead of having the entire chapter read before class, I have the section we are talking about today done… And, yes, I read it while I ate my breakfast 30 minutes before walking to class.

Where do I start to look to find the motivation to keep up with a Β blog that has a grand total of 8 views in its entire life (only 4 months, but still)?

Do I write about boring things? Is my blog too general to get attention from a “niche of readers”?

All you successful writers out there.. SOS?
