the life of a blogger

Blogging is not an easy gig. As bloggers, we put our hearts and souls into our sites, hoping to stand out among millions of others. We pray for comments, for traffic, and most of all, for an audience. Vying for attention, subscribers, and just a sliver of your time.

Blogging is also satisfying. The ability to publish words with a click of the button. A writer’s dream.

Blogging is frustrating. Growth is not predictable. Most bloggers are never paid, at least not with money. Blogging can consume you and leave you feeling lost without a cause.

In spite of (or perhaps because of?) the challenges, I love to blog. Even when I take a break from posting, which I do when life overwhelms, my blog is never far from my heart.

Blogging is challenging. No matter how many days, weeks, months we spend creating and refining our blogs, there is always room for improvement. Always. Like people, blogs must evolve and change.

Please help me improve this blog. What kind of posts do you enjoy reading on Lucille in the Sky?
