I’ve been struggling with my crojo for a few weeks now, and I’m not really sure what will solve it. Maybe it’s because I’ve finally figured out how big of a C2C panel I make before losing interest. Maybe it’s just the time of year. I don’t know.
Lately, I’ve also been struggling with the whole blogging thing–particularly when it comes to blog growth. Last year was an exponentially explosive year for us, and 2017 has so far been looking a little lackluster.
I have been considering the move to a self-hosted system in an attempt to try and make real money as a “real blogger”. There are a lot of obstacles along that path, and I’m not sure I’m ready to face them yet. In fact, the thought of trying to self-host this blog is just plain daunting. Will I really have the time for that? And what if nothing changes? What if we continue along this year’s pattern of blog growth? After all of that effort, time and money, what if it turns out it just wasn’t worth it?
Argh! Internal struggle! (Seriously–thoughts and comments would be really appreciated!)
We have over 9700 followers, and over 1000 of those followers are subscribed to our email list. So if you’re reading this because you got an email, YAY! (Also, you’re awesome. True story.)
This blog started as merely an outlet for my hobby. And frankly, it wouldn’t be what it is without the Harry Potter CAL, so props to all the Potterheads out there! I feel like I’m still trying to narrow down my focus, and all I can really come up with is:
YARN + GEEKERY = TWO HEARTS CROCHET
Seriously though, I’m reminded of the thousands of followers of this blog, and I’m so blessed that you take the time to craft along with me. I have a habit of giving up on things when they get difficult, and I can honestly say that this blog wouldn’t be here without each and every one of you. <3 <3
