Change is Hard

I have hit a patch of blogger’s block. That doesn’t usually happen to me. I have tons of ideas and generally don’t have trouble creating a post.

For the last week, it’s been a struggle.

It’s likely because I know I need to make some changes and I’m resisting. Which is crazy, because the only person who has a say is me. ๐Ÿ˜› When I started this blog, it was with the idea that I would use it to further my online business. As I started writing, though, it became more of a place for me to just write about things that interest me. Which is fine, except now I find myself wanting/needing to make a pivot, because I do want my online business to be successful.

I purposely branded everything using the Introverted Hermit – my Etsy shop, this website, my social media sites. I could start all over, but I don’t want to. I’ve already bought the domain, have everything set up, etc. So the other option is to pivot and start using this site for business rather than the more personal blogging I’ve done up to this point.

I’d like to find a way to balance the two – to still have some personal content but mixed in with more business content. I haven’t figured out how to do that yet. There’s also the fear that making changes will hurt the progress I’ve made attracting readers.

Change is hard, y’all.

I spent some time today looking up editorial calendar templates because I need to get more organized with my writing – maybe that will help me focus and create the blend of business/personal I’m looking for. I found a few, but I got annoyed at the number of sites that wanted an email address before I could download the ‘free’ template. So I made a mental note that if something on my site is labeled ‘free,’ it is actually free – won’t even cost you an email address. ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. It is your blog and you can do whatever you like with it! I personally love ‘business’ blogs and accounts that share personal stuff as well as just the business side; I’m much more likely to buy from a human I can relate to ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes – I think a lot of businesses would be better if they involved, you know, actual people. ๐Ÿ˜Š Itโ€™s just hard to figure out where that balance is for me. Iโ€™ve leaned more towards personal than I originally intended and now Iโ€™m having to rethink things a bit. Thanks for the comment!
