thoughts about blogging

Good morning/day/evening!

It’s currently 21.04 as I start writing this post, and I honestly don’t really know where this blog post is going. I just wanted to sit down and write a blog post about something.

The last few days I have been sitting at home most of the time. My head has been hurting and to prevent it from turning into a migraine I have stayed home. I don’t really know why I have suddenly gotten headaches as much these past days – I have been doing really good in that area for months now. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that I have been out with friends since the 31st of May. (And by out, I mean not at home, but at my friends home) You see, one of my best friends came home from a year in USA (exchange student) and every since then me and my two best friends have been doing things every single day. Mostly just playing cards, so it’s not like we have been doing a lot of energy draining things. But it’s more than I have done the last few months!

Anyway, one of the things that I wanted to write something about was what the hell I am planning on doing this summer/after summer is over. Because I’m not sure whats happening.

I wanted to specifically write about my thoughts when it comes to what I’m doing with my blog, because I have a few thoughts. For the two (almost three) years of having this blog I have figured that I absolutely love blogging. (All though, I have known this for more than three years, but I have never had a blog for more than 2 – 4 months) And I want to do something more about it.

I have been playing with the idea of getting an upgrade for the blog. And by that I mean getting my own domain so I wouldn’t have to have wordpress in the actual domain. And to have a bigger storage space because I’m almost full. The only problem with this is that it costs money and seeing that I don’t have a job, it’s sort of a problem. If the blog could pay for it self, that would have been perfect, but seeing as it doesn’t, and that I don’t have a job, it’s not something that can happen at the moment. But soon!

Another thing I want to do is to write longer blog posts. I have been reading a lot of ‘articles’ about how to get traffic to your blog, and one of the things that seems to be an overall tip is to have longer blog posts. Of course, it’s still fun to write a blog post without a lot of traffic, I can’t lie and say that it wouldn’t be even better with more people reading my blog and commenting. I love when people comment something, and I love interacting with other people (so feel free to comment anything) Anyway, and looking back on my other posts, I rarely have over 300 words. And I have read that writing blog posts between 2000 – 5000 is the best. And I’m far from it.

Yet another thing I want to do before the end of the year is to start using some sort of affiliate service. (Not that I think it’ll be used since I don’t have a lot of traffic on my blog) My dream job is to do something I love to do. And I love blogging, making videos, taking pictures and writing, and I feel like blogging is a perfect mix of that. I feel weird saying that my dream job is blogging (and youtube and author) because I feel like it’s something you can’t say that you want to be your job, that you can only go into it thinking it’s a hobby and not a job. Does that make sense? Probably not.

What I mean is that I’m “scared” saying that I want to be able to make money from blogging (and youtube) because I feel like you can’t say that. I’m “scared” people are going to think I’m only blogging because I want to make money. But I’m not. I love blogging and I have had SO MANY blogs through my 18 years of living. I can’t count how may blogs I have made by my self or with friends. If I in the future, could have blogging (and possibly youtube and author) as a job – only job – I would be so happy. Because I would be able to do something I love and make money from it, not just have a job that I’m ok with and not be happy. That’s one of my fears. To not be happy.

But I don’t think it’ll happen any day now at least. All I know is that after three+ years of feeling like shit (pardon my language), all I want to do is something I actually want to do. Not just because I have to, and because it1s the right thing to do according to society.

another walk:

So, if anyone got all the way to the bottom: what do you think? What’s your dream job?
