I don’t know about you, but blogging is a challenge for me. My biggest challenge is creating new content on a consistent basis. I have the ideas, but have trouble getting them written. It’s not a time issue; I have the time to write the post. For me it’s a self-confidence issue. I’m never happy with what I write. I’m always looking for a way to make it better. Another challenge I find myself encountering is self-promotion. In order to have a successful blog you have to do some kind of promoting. Whether it is just commenting on other blogs, social media, writing a newsletter, or creating videos it’s all with the intent of enticing others to visit your blog. I’m just not good with self-promotion.
Despite these challenges, I enjoy blogging. I enjoy reading blogs. I enjoy meeting new people with similar interests. I enjoy helping other bloggers.
What I have to remember when these challenges decide to appear is that if I’m doing God’s will, then He will provide the answers and the abilities to overcome these challenges.
“For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.” Isaiah 41:13
“And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do [it]: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, [even] my God, [will be] with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.” 1 Chronicles 28:20
