Thoughts of a Blogger: A Blogger’s Journal

I like the idea of my blog, and the content.  My message is clear “Life is simply far too short to ONLY think of your professional life.” Yes, I have obtained my Master in Social Work (MSW), and gone on to obtain my clinical license (LICSW); but degrees, licensure, and my profession do not define me. I am unsure of how to build the readerships/following. I’m not opposed to the organic way it’s been going, but I wonder if I should actively find ways to grow the readership. I do largely believe every message you’re supposed to receive comes in your time… I am enjoying blogging and feel like I am getting my voice out there, and I have made some connections and have some favorite blogs I like to read as well. I also feel like I am presenting a social worker in 360 view. It’s not just about the daily battles, but the self-care and the life you live.

  1. I think it’s awesome you like the idea of your blog and that you are happy with its content. I find you do have those snippets here and there that pick up on what is important in life.

    Your dilemma is an interesting one. There are some good bloggers out there who do give excellent advice on how to tweak a blog so that it gets a wider readership etc.

    I often think of the need to knuckle down and make a concerted effort re my blog. I know that one day, I will start to put more of an effort into my plan of action!

      “I find you do have those snippets here and there that pick up on what is important in life.” Thank you. That is enough for now, because as the Real Life of an MSW evolves, I want it to be like life, not one dimensional. Thank you for reading and commenting.


  2. I started blogging back in 2008 on here speaking business. I had a consulting firm where I place accounting/finance professionals. And income business and an Etiquette School. 2018, I changed I used my blog as a therapeutic outlet. At one point I lived for the comments and numbers. Now I live for the relief and release. I’m satisfied.

      Thank you for sharing your blogging journey with me. Real Life of an MSW, started September 2015, and has evolved over time. I enjoy the current flow of it as one reader summed it up by saying, ” I really enjoy the variety of your post- from food and decor tips to funny comic strips and deeper meditations on more serious subjects. You certainly provide a wonderful variety for your readers”
