Although I hate the term, I’m one of those serial entrepreneurs. I’m also one of those people who never finishes what they start. Over the
decades just a few, small number of years, this has led to tons of clutter. Half-finished craft projects, a garage full of junk our family no longer needs, and websites never completed or abandoned to other passions.
Which is where this blog has sat for the past 3 years as I was “busy” doing other things.
I’ve been on this decluttering kick lately, which I’ll talk about some other time. But today it finally rolled over into all my websites. Y’all, it’s crazy. Here are just a few of the things hanging around:
- a blog about losing weight, where I had planned to make all this money with affiliate programs until I realized that if you give diet advice without being a nutritionist, or exercise advice without a license, you can get yourself into big trouble
- a travel website I bought to justify traveling that never ended up happening and just became a dumping ground for guest posts, and even that disappeared a long time ago
- a site about “as seen on TV” products, that used to do pretty well in terms of affiliate marketing, but the sources dried up, along with my passion for the idea
- a site about furniture for kids room, which was an ancillary site to the toy store my husband and I used to own
- and this site, which I could never decide whether it was a personal blog or a lifestyle site or what…all I can look back at is some decent posts with really bad photography
So I’m purging here like I’ve been purging my house. The diet site is gone. The infomercial site is gone. I saved two posts from the furniture site and moved them here. For now, the travel site will stay…we’ll see. Baby steps, people.
All this to say, I’m back! I know you’re excited 😉
The great thing that all this physical and mental decluttering has done? It’s cleared my schedule and my mind. I find more time to sit and enjoy life. To watch the birds and play with my kids. To read or stitch or do home improvement projects. Why wouldn’t I share them? I’m ready, again. Talk to you soon.
