Blog Life


July 26, 2016

Choices have to be taken many times in our lives. Choices also have consequences and which leads us to taking the right decisions. As bloggers we face choices both small ones and big ones and it is crucial for our progress to make the right decisions. I made a big decision in my blogging career when I decided to move from the old blog platform to WordPress. That choice has turned out to be the right decision for me until now.

I have had a huge progress on my blog thanks to my wonderful readers who have welcomed my message and I am glad that I have been able to inspire them with my posts. Right now I am facing a new decision that I have to make. I am offered a deal with another blog platform that offers me support and coaching if I decide to start posting on their blog platform. To be honest I am very flattered by the acknowledgement they are giving me by wanting me as part of their bloggers.

Choices that leads to decisions can also turn out to be wrong. In soccer there is a saying “never change a winning team” that means do not change something that works. This phrase has been circling in my head the whole day. Why should I change now when everything is going so well here on WordPress? Therefor I have decided to stay on WordPress and refuse the offer from the other platform.

In addition, I have also connected with a lot of wonderful people here which I would miss a lot but the biggest reason for not changing is my lovely readers. I would not exchange them for anything not even a good offer from another platform. They make blogging worth doing and I am lucky for having them as an inspiration to blog everyday. ♥

    One thing to say, We must move on but not sprint, for some things are left behind when we start running too fast!

    Great insight by the way, and do remember, once you create a position in hearts through your writings, they always beat for you,wherever you may be! We are all one! All for one and one for all! 🙂

    I believe you would never find the strong sense of community WordPress has anywhere else. I’ve been on WP for many years and have a kind of family here, having met so many wonderful people who have been in my life for years. ??

      I have to agree with you. I wish that I have discovered WP before but I believe that things happen when they are supposed to.

        I do too! Nothing in the Universe can happen any other way than it was intended.

    I am glad you stayed. I started my blog in 2006 and moved to WordPress in 2007. There were no regrets only blessings. The amount of readers increased and there were people that are an honor to meet.
    Your blog is one of my favorites full of positive energy. I also love hearing about the adventures of a Brazilian woman in Norway which is also excellent.

      My boyfriend sometimes reads your blog since he speaks fluently Spanish. He has lived in Seville and studied Spanish in Norway. We really like your blog. I am glad that you like my adventures 🙂

        Thank you Roberta for your reply and for reading my blog. I also want to extend my thanks to your boyfriend for reading as well. My best wishes to both of you from Florida.

    You have such an uplifting message, I think many, many people (including myself) will be glad you decided to stay.

    I liked the realization you derived from football ! Great one! 🙂

    If you’re already winning, there’s no reason to change the strategy. If there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout the very few years I’ve been on this planet–it’s that the hardest choice is usually the right choice. Thank you for your contributions and inspiration. Have a lovely Tuesday.

    I am glad you decided to stay with WP. I thoroughly enjoy your posts and would miss you. There are lots of places on the Internet to find support and coaching when it comes to blogging. You could reach out and learn what you can and bring it back here to this platform where your readers and friends are. Wishing you nothing but a bright successful future. ?

    Sounds like a smart decision.

    I don’t know what the offer was that you received, but I am invited from time to time, to become a ‘resident blogger’ for one organisation or another. What it is, is an offer to write blog articles for nothing, so that the organisation can gain by way of advertising revenues. 🙂
