Purpose Adds Perspective

9 Nov


My Shorty: Your Chicago South Side Resource blog gets at least 1,000 views per month with at least 80% of those being new visitors.  On the surface, this sounds great.  However, there are absolutely NO conversations on my blog.  I had considered reducing my posts to once a week, but I would feel bad about not sharing some of the information that comes my way .

I went through this whole thing about people not caring about what I share and questioned whether I  should continue to put time into something that people don’t care about.  The answer: It’s not about me.  And ” to whom much is given much is required.”

Well, that just stinks doesn’t it?

The reality is: my purpose is to share information.  Nothing more, noting less.  The funny thing is, I wasn’t tripping on making money from Shorty (although it would be nice);  I was focused on the amount of time I putting into this site that may not be appreciated.  But when I really think about Shorty, it has never been about me.  And I will get blessed just from the information I give.  And, I have had great conversations and gathered great resources with a few of the people that have stopped by to leave comments.

What’s my point? I’m so over what was ailing me.  In fact, I am more insightful than before I started my pity party. And, I’m going to do what I am supposed to do on Shorty while focusing on profiting from The Write Design Company.

If you already know your purpose? What is it?  Are you living it to the fullest?

    Hi Marcie- It’s karma that I visited you today (and do try to comment) because I wrote something similar in regards to my purpose and passion for blogging @ my womanwise2,in view of little/no comments AND you know what? It’s definitely not about me. It’s about honoring my purpose!

    (I do have Rick’s book)

    Keep-a-going Marcie!
