I believe I left “fun” a long time ago. I am sure some people are groaning right now because they feel that blogging should always be fun. That depends on your goals and what you hope to accomplish. I compare it to sports really. You can either “play for fun’ or you can play to win. I have always played to win.
“If you’re not first, you’re last!” Is one of my favorite lines from Ricky Bobby. I know that it isn’t meant to be taken seriously… but hate me world because I do. I really do. I hate being second because I was always second in life. My sister was the A student, I was the C student… on a good day.
It is funny to be recognized as “dedicated and motivated” since those words were never part of my working resume growing up. They were often replaced with the character traits “find an easier road” and “is this really important?” Give me a goal though that I can see, can touch; can feel is close and I will strive for it. That is what blogging gives me. That next level, that next number, that next step I am always taking is what drives me each day to pour the time I do into this blog.
Blogging is work. But it is finally work that I love to do.
