My, oh my! Where does the time go? Four years ago, I started this blog with the hopes of promoting myself as a digital advertising consultant. But somewhere along the way, I discovered how much I love writing and discussing digital marketing and small business trends online. And so, a new profession was born!
Because of this blog, I’ve managed to sustain myself as a freelance writer and B2B marketing strategist through successes and failures, back pain and having a baby. And I’ve learned so much about myself, about running a small business and writing for the social web along the way.
So, to celebrate my four-year bloggerversary, I’d like to share some of the most important things I’ve learned so far.
Through all of my ups and downs, I still dedicate myself to blogging at least once a month on this platform – even though I contribute to various other publications. And I write at least once a week for other blog platforms. But this is my space to share personal thoughts. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Trollers are gonna troll
There will always be people who disagree with what you write. Or, people will choose to write negative comments just to stir things up. It’s better to take the high road and not spark further negativity. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and often your opinion will not please everybody.
You can always learn more
What I love about writing is that there isn’t a finish line. I know that I can always get better. And I thank the readers of this blog and my posts on other platforms for your feedback. I also thank all of the writers who are way better than me for teaching me something new every day.
Thanks again for your continued support for this blog and for my writing. I hope that in another four years, I’ll be able to share even more lessons learned.
