Eat Dream Blog - What Would You Do If You Had No Fear of Failure?

Many of us have dreams that we think will forever remain just that – dreams…

What we could do “if only…”

If only we had… more time, more money, more space, more support….

More courage?

It’s hard to put it all out there. Really hard. To try and make a go of it, especially in today’s world where you don’t have to be a celebrity to have your messiness or mistakes exposed.

But I’m trying. Because a life where I only get to spend 35 hours a week with my children while I spend 45+ at work doesn’t sound like much of a life to me.

Before I started this adventure, I had no idea just how much work went into running a successful blog. All I have to is write and post, right? Build it and they will come?

Yeah. Right.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy with my stats thus far. It may not seem like much compared to other sites out there, but in the 18 days since I’ve launched, I’ve had 641 visitors. And I’m so grateful for each and every one of you.

I love it, though. And that really is all that matters in the end. I wish I had more time to work on it, but I make do. I come up with post ideas while I’m driving to work, I promote via social media while I nurse my baby to sleep, and I dream about the day this blog will set me free financially. Because it will happen. Someday.

What are some of your dreams? I’d love to hear about them!

    I just wrote about what i’ve learned in my first year of blogging…and the most important thingI learned is that I have do it for myself first and foremost and because I love doing it!

      YES!! If you go into it for the money, you’ll almost certainly fail. It has to be for love first. Always. 🙂

    This is so great that you shared and reposted this. I am reading and smiling because I am at that point in my very early blogging career.
    I love the writing, and the expression and definetly not for the money. But I always joke with my wife. I juzt made .50 cents.
    Thanks again

    If you never chase your dreams, you’ll never catch them. So true. Just like all those people who wish they’d win the lottery but never go out and buy a ticket!
