How Does Blogging Challenge You?

blogging challengeI 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
