Being a blogger can be a lonely job. Each day I wake up and check my website. On several occasions my site has been down when I would wake up. I check my social media messages and emails. With all of the daily communication I still feel alone. I work from home, no office to go to. Yes, it’s amazing and I feel blessed everyday to do this full-time. It also means that I drink my coffee alone more often then not. There is no gossiping about the new girl in HR. If anyone is harassing me, I can report the incident only to myself. I try to remember to be kind to myself. I’m not the best employee, in fact I wouldn’t award myself the employee of the month award. I went on vacation last week. There goes my perfect attendance. All of my planned posts got jammed up. My views plummeted. Resulted in two days of posts and creations. I create all of my own promotional material. I post six hours a day to every media outlet I am able to find. This has resulted in about 30,000 views each month. That results in about fifty cents per day in ad revenue. I’m rolling in success. I write because I love it. Telling stories of pain and sorrow relieve my soul of the darkness. Reading other blogs each day let me know I’m not alone. I thought my brain was unique, but I have found others who have thoughts that keep them up at night. I’m no longer alone. I’m part of the community. I will continue to connect.
