When you find out, please let me know. I will never, ever advise anyone to go into blogging for the fame and money because (1) It may never happen, and (2) If it does happen, it doesn’t happen easily or overnight. I love blogging. I really, really do. It’s actually my first job, no longer my second job. It started off as a hubby that turned into a
non-paying second job volunteer job. Now, it has overtaken my first job. I don’t talk much about my [other] job here. Have you noticed?
I spend so much time on Verastic that it’s ridiculous. If I am not typing up a post, I’m thinking about a post to type up. Or tweaking something. Or adding/removing a plugin. Or responding to e-mails. Or Twitter. Or Facebook. Or Instagram. Speaking of Facebook, I put up a status update on Monday saying it was the best Monday ever and people should guess why. Some idiot from the pit of Idiot Land sent me a message to ask if it was a blow job — and did I like it.
I thought of 99 ways to curse him out, none of which I can write on here. Then I wondered why I was even bothering with him. Meanwhile, the thing I was doing that made my Monday so special was the Pit Bill Dalmation dog I was playing with. Her name is Fiona, and she’s awesome. She looks like a Pit Bull, but her skin is like a Dalmation (white, with black spots). So you see, when you encounter people like this guy, it makes you wonder.
Where was I? Oh yeah, blogging. There. Are. So. Many. Blogs. I mean, so many beautiful blogs. Sometimes, when I see the time and energy and passion and creativity bloggers put into their blogs, I am blown away! This thing takes so much time. And these bloggers give out so much information. It’s crazy. I am so proud to be a blogger. So, so proud. We are a force to be reckoned with.
Still. Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if I could just think the post in my head and have it miraculously appear on the world wide web. Then, as soon as the post appears, it is followed by e-mails upon e-mails from brands that I love, asking me how many millions they can pay me — and would I be available to be interviewed on CNN. And Huffington Post. And ABC. And Oprah’s Next Chapter. And so much more. I can’t be the only one thinking this. Right?
Right now, I’m literally bouncing off the walls with ideas. Most of these ideas center around my blog. I am still a one-woman army though. It’s not easy doing it all by myself. Blogging. Responding to comments. Replying e-mails. Tweeting. Facebooking. Instagramming. Meeting deadlines of sponsored posts. Doing The Verastic Show. Finding Co-hosts. Thinking of show ideas. MC’ing events. And so much more.
But you know what? If I had to do it all over again, the only thing I would change is that I would start blogging sooner. Thank you to everyone for reading this blog. You make it all worth it. I love you. And err, no, I don’t know yet how to blog without blogging.
UPDATE: Here’s a picture of Fiona because Odesh left a comment stating her disappointment, and I just can’t sleep at night knowing that Odesh is disappointed. I didn’t include the picture before because it’s not a very clear picture, but it’ll just have to do for now.
Odesh, are you happy now?
