In July, I started writing on Medium. Medium is a platform for writers to blog without the process of starting a blog. Plus, you can earn money right away, even if it’s just cents.
I blog there every day, and I love it. While it’s still hard work, there at least the already existing audience, which is the hardest thing to get on a new blog.
Balancing Medium and my own blog is a struggle.
I write an article for Medium every day. I read articles on there, I promote those articles on social media, and more. Everything I do revolves around that platform, and if I’m being honest, I don’t take this one seriously.
I know that’s bad, and I feel guilty.
I want to go all in with Itxayana.com, but a part of me thinks it’s impossible.
It’s hard to build an audience from scratch, to promote your articles on social media when it’s already oversaturated, and to keep going when you don’t see what you want to see.
I didn’t think I was the type of person to ever find anything impossible, but that’s my truth.
I don’t believe in this the way I should. I hate that, I really do. Now that I’m aware of the problem though, then maybe I can start working on it. I can do something about it because Medium isn’t going to last forever.
I can’t depend on a platform that isn’t my own.
I have so many dreams and goals I want to achieve, and I need to figure out where that starts. I know my goals for Medium, but I don’t know what my goals are for this blog.
That’s part of the problem.
If I don’t know where I’m going, where I have to aim, then I’ll continue this unmotivated path. I have to reevaluate what the hell I’m trying to accomplish here, and then do everything I can to reach those goals, just like I’m doing on Medium.
Maybe you have to do the same. Probably you too are wandering around aimlessly, doing everything at nothing at the same time.
Take the next couple of days or week to figure out what you want, what you really want. Then, do everything in your power to get that thing.
