WOW! I feel like a newbie again.
It has been so long since I created a blog post… There is so much to relearn about blogging once you have been away from it for a while.
So much to relearn about blogging
I have been staring at my computer now for about 2 hours trying to just come up with a title let alone something to chat about.
I forgot that when you stop something for a while, you tend to forget. I forgot how to blog!!
Writing was easy when I was unemployed. I just opened the laptop and started to say whatever was on my brain at the time.
Now, sitting here trying to just come up with a title was stumping me for way too long and I realized just how long it had been…too long.
Why did I go away, well… I didn’t really go away, I just did not have the brain power to write after working at night.
Yep, I am back with Disney World working for the Mouse building yet another state of the art que line for another attraction, this time it is Peter
Back a while ago, I built a que line for Big Thunder Mountain. This was about the time I was trying to put together vadersnewempire.com
I forgot how much was involved in the whole creating the blog post, what to say, how to write for people and not the search engines.
It is truly amazing how much one can forget something once you have been away from it for so long.
I thought, heck…open up WordPress and away I would go just like I never left, boy was I mistaken!
So, what has been happening in Chris Budesheim’s world you ask?
Well, just the usual. Trying to keep a smile on my face while working a job I just can’t stand doing any longer.
I mean, I have been doing the Electrical trade for soooo long that I am getting burned out on it.
I fell in love with a new job that I was just getting into then whammo…back to construction I went.
I have got to eat and pay my bills still. LOL
I’m talking about SEO. Yep, I fell in love with a new trade and being away from it for a little under 2 months seems like an eternity!
I even forgot how to type!!
I swore to myself that I was not going to let my new found love disappear like so many other hobbies or other things I got into did. And before
today, I thought it might go that way but, I will not let my day job of making just over poverty level wages deter me from fulfilling a dream to
become my own boss!
I can not and will not!!
I was on fire before I got my electrical job back and was putting out some blog posts that were frankly shocking me that I could even write
something like that. I was patting myself on the back at times after reading what came from my brain.
My new found love
My new found love for SEO is what I am talking about. Something that when I really started putting out my own personal blog posts did I
realize that I actually was falling in love with. I felt like I had learned something I did not think I could. And, in my mind…was getting
better each and everyday at it. Knew what was being talked about during the training webinars. Could actually implement what was being
Now, seems like a dream I had and awoke to find myself with my tools in my hands with my 10lb work boots on again. (by the way, my work
boots weigh 10lbs each)
Feeling like I am trying to relearn how to blog, how to SEO my blog posts, how to come up with new titles, what pictures to put in my blogs
Feel like screaming! Even thinking of going to an AA meeting just so I don’t fall again.
Did he just say AA??
Yes, AA folks. I am still a recovering alcoholic and sometimes the stresses of life come full circle. I am still sober after almost 3 years and plan
to stay that way. Trying not to let the Devil get in my way of this sober life of mine. I know what my alcoholic triggers are and know what to
do to keep them at bay.
Blogging was one of the ways as well as cookies and milk. Neither of which I have had in quite some time now.
So yes, I am going to hit a meeting or two super soon to kind of reset my ways of thinking as most of us need to at times.
As well as get a gallon of milk and a bunch of cookies!!
My mission now is to get back to my love of blogging and getting back into the SEO practice! There is money to be made and I sure as hell am
not going to get ahead working for Mickey frickin’ Mouse!!
I might not hit the laptop everyday but, you will be seeing more and more of me soon.
Not to mention, I have not given up on my LEGO blog either! I need to do some restructuring of the site to get it seen better.
So, to all my friends in the blogging world…don’t give up on me yet. I have work to be done and it does not include electricity (other than
what powers my laptop) LOL!
I have so much to relearn about blogging!
