I’ve been on the fringe of the Internet marketing scene for around 7 years, well known for being eCoverNinja, my main business sees me creating salespage graphics, formatting sales copy and WordPress themes for information marketers.
Throughout that time, I’ve learned so many lessons about staying focused, running a business and generally trying to get along in life.
Blogging had never been a focus for me. I’d never seen a need to blog – my business runs along nicely without the additional time required to maintain a blog, I didn’t need the backlinks or the extra traffic. I was happily accepting repeat business from my clients and the new clients they happily sent my way.
What incentive was there for me to blog?
I didn’t have an answer to that question, so I never got started.
Today, it finally hit me, I’d been thinking about it from a purely selfish point of view – blogging was never supposed to be about me. It should be a place to give back – to share ideas and thoughts, and make a difference.
I’ve been thinking a lot recently about giving back, making a difference and helping others – as I continue to write this blog I’ll share my motivation for that, partly to keep make myself accountable and more importantly to inspire others.
If, one day, something I write makes even the smallest difference for you, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts – by email or in the comments. That’s my reason for writing, and that’s what I thrive on. Have a great day, I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
