The Truth About Blogging

Blogging takes a lot of time, effort and can be extremely frustrating.  I don’t think many realize that blogging is work.  It can be fun, it can be exciting, and it can be lucrative; however, the blogger has to give up a lot of themselves in order to achieve their goals.  Even when they are successful it comes with a price.

If you’ve noticed, lately I haven’t been ‘blogging with intent’ as much as I have in the past.  The several programs that I once was a part of, all came to a close.  Coincidentally, they all came to a close at around the same time!  That meant that a huge chunk of my potentially ‘sponsored’ posts disappeared.  One huge program that I was a part of for several years (from beginning to end), came to its finale.  The Brand P&G actually decided that it no longer was feasible to maintain its Canadian PGMom program.   Other programs came to an end; but were transferred over to other Social Media Groups … that means that the programs may or may not become active again.  In turn, that means that I am left unsure as to what may come.

The reality of it is, most Brands change the Media Groups they work with often.  I prefer not to get into details, and to keep this whole topic light.  My intent is just to explain what is going on, in regards to my absence from blogging.

So you’re probably thinking “where does this leave us?” … I’m actually thinking the same thing.  I’m not the only blogger thinking this either.  Many bloggers are currently wondering what their next step will be.  I’m hoping that things will pick up and that I become just as active as I once was.  Until then please know that I have been focussing on my health.

Thank you for your continued support.  I’m wishing you much health, love, and happiness.  ((hugs))
