The thing I love about blogging is once you have made the decision and jumped down the rabbit hole, to immerse yourself in the blogosphere, the answers begin to present themselves to you.
My idea of starting Ideas4Dads first came about over nine years ago when High Command was pregnant with our eldest.
The blog was launched in 2013 and I had three years doing some of what was the most enjoyable times of my parenting life, writing about my trials and tribulations of a Dad in well over his head.
Sadly I had to knock it on the head because work commitments were just too much.
Being the best Dad I can be means the world to me.
But I have to be honest for the last couple of years, since our youngest began to become mobile, I’ve really struggled with being a Dad to three spirited girls (according to our school spirited is code for little monkeys).
I’ve recently been dumped out the other end of a corporate nightmare without so much as a carriage clock BUT am now presented with the glorious opportunity of following my dream of becoming a full time blogger.
Putting my Bloggers Block struggles to one side, I am struggling with something much more frustrating and deep seated.
That is the fear of being successful and actually making a living from blogging!
That in some way I am not entitled to do well.
That I don’t deserve it.
And this brings me back to my earlier opening gambit when last night I happened upon this wonderful post from the Mamapreneur Revolution.
I am someone that worries a great deal when really I just need to focus on keeping it simple and taking it one step at a time.
More of a confessional post but I needed to get it out there so I can move on.
Did you have fears when you first started blogging?
How did you overcome them?
As always it would be great to hear from you with your comments 🙂
