For the first time in I don’t know how long, I had a little downtime while stuck in a hotel in the Portland area due to unusual weather over the weekend. I had some time to think about my website and the blog that’s attached to it. I pondered what this blog means to me, my readers and where do I see it going.
When I first started this website and blog, I had no idea where it would take me. My goal was to have an online store; or at least try my hand at it for a bit to see how it would work out long-term. When I was told by numerous people that blogging would help promote Green and Chic, I started to think twice about the whole thing since I never blogged before, or read blogs for that matter!
In this journey, I discovered that writing about Green and Chic will not and (for me) should not be just about my store and products. I think that would be very boring for my readers – and myself for that matter! Over the past few months, this blog has morphed into writing about my journey into a more sustainable lifestyle and sharing what I learn with others. I don’t claim to be an expert in the subject of green eco living, but like so many people, its an area that I enjoy learning about.
I had a chance to revisit the goals of my blog and what it means to me. I’m glad its more than just selling products from my website, affiliates, PPC, and other ways to monetize the blog. While those things are great and necessary for survival, I want it to be more than just making money online (which wasn’t the original goal of this blog ironically).
I would also like to take this time to thank all of my readers: the commenters, blog rollers and the silent readers. There are so many people I would like to thank who has assisted me in my blogging journey, but I know I will leave many people out.
If you blog, has your blog changed, improved and/or grown since your first post? Where do you see it going in the near and distant future? I know these are broad questions, but I would like to get a variety of responses regardless of your niche.
