Daily Inspiration: Patience is not the ability to wait…

patience

With blogging, you can create a post in minutes, hit publish and voila! You have created something on the web. It's like instant gratification.  If you want to be successful, however, the truth is, successful blogs don't happen overnight. In order to have a successful blog you have to consistently create great content over a period of time, for some it's a year, for others it's five years, or longer.

That's where patience comes in. Bloggers who stay in it for the long haul, not only have the ability to wait while honing in their skills to be great bloggers, they enjoy the process of building a blog. It's not about hanging in there for “X” period of time, it's how that time is being spent. Is it being spent griping and complaining how everyone else is “making it” or is it spent improving, learning and growing?

    Totally agree, and love the quote. Luckily my patience renews, and its a virtue instilled in me by my father. Good things comes to those who wait. I don’t really follow her anymore, but one good example is Karla’s Closet. So many of us were readers back when blogs were just taking off, and she is going strong true to her style. I’ve changed my blog model numerous times, but just out of the joy for the process.

    That quote is just what I needed this morning! I love fashion and how amazing it feels to create a blog post or an incredibly cute outfit. When I think about having to support myself financially in an unrelated, emotionally unfulfilling job, I sometimes feel stuck and discouraged. Reminding myself to focus not on how long “success” takes, but simply enjoying the process of following my fashion dreams helps a lot. Thanks for lifting my spirits!

    Patience is definitely a virtue! I am having a great time just fine tuning my blog, writing skills, and voice. It doesn’t all have to happen for me tomorrow, because I am enjoying having a bit of time being not so popular. This way my trial and error stage is not on a huge display screen for the whole world to see.

    This is honestly something I need to drill in my head. As great as I want to be in blogging I need to learn that not everyone will get to the point that they want to be when they want to be. Patience is definitely the key.
