Over this past week I’ve skipped out blogging more than I want to. In the beginning of this year I’ve made it a goal to post as much as I possibly can. This led to a daily posting and then to a six day posting. This made me post about 90 or so blogs in the past three months.
The number has dropped this past week because of a few things, which no-one may care about but I’ll write anyways because it’ll make one post. In fact, because I’ve been reading and studying quite a few things that I haven’t posted about I may just end up posting about those things.
I’ve made it my goal to save up a certain amount for things my family needs. My wife stays at home with my son and I work full time as a massage therapist. My wife stays at home because I am taking a crack at a new business my parents have started up, because we believe this is what is right, and because we are able to do it.
The business my parents started is Freight Brokering. I’ve been doing that for the past four months. I have also recently started my hand at copywriting. Thanks to my aunt and something she said I began research into this field. As I did, I realized I could do it. This led me to seeking work in this field, which I have obtain some.
So now, I’m working a few different things. If we count each project as a separate job (even though it all can be labeled, “freelance” work) then I am working about four jobs. All a way to image forth this reality: I’m not able to write for this blog as often as I wish.
Now, in being open, I must admit as well that I do entertain the idea of maybe one day blogging full time, providing good content and information on Christianity and life. I started creating a Patreon, but I am holding off on that now. Perhaps one day I’ll selfishly ask people to donate if they so desire, but for now I need to simply work.
Which leads me to my conclusion: I’m still going to try and produce at least four or so posts a week. However, I’ve made peace with myself knowing that perhaps for a time I won’t be able to blog. This is all well, because the aim is for these other jobs to take off so that I may perhaps quit my massage job. In doing so, I can work more normal hours and perhaps spend more time in providing free content.
For now, I’ll just have to settle for the fact that blogging daily may hinder me from what I need to do, even though blogging for me is helping me achieve what I want to do (write fiction and Christian non-fiction). But that’s okay, because I’m writing in other capacities at this time, so though I’m not blogging, my writing is still being sharpened. I thank God for this. He guides us, and I pray that I’ll make the wisest decisions.
I also have no fear in my decisions because I know the love of Christ. He is a good teacher and He will not fail at accomplishing His goal of making me holy and blameless.
