Hey there! It’s Friday and you know what? It’s time to celebrate. Wait? Celebrate? I thought this post was about failing? Well yes, it is but the benefits are for you, my readers and loyal followers, so keep reading. Remember when I told you about the “14 lessons I’ve learned after 18 months of blogging?” Or do you remember my post a while back “It’s officially Autumn and I have a few confessions” about leaving my 9-5 job to focus on my passions with blogging and art. Well yes, today I’m going to share with you what happened when I failed at trying something new. It’s confession time.
Ah hem, I should clarify first. When I say failed at something new, I don’t mean this blog overall, but rather a small part. In particular, my jewelry blog shop. Yep, I confess, I really suck at being a salesman. I have enough self-awareness to accept that. I’m no Gary Vaynerchuk. Boy I can respect that man’s hustle, but that’s so not me. I’m just a creative gal with a talent for writing, doodling and art and have the desire to make a living doing what I love. I have many talents but being a salesman isn’t my strong suit.
I don’t know about you but in my blogging journey, I have wanted to make it a point to try everything and not limit myself. My goal has always been to create a great blog, not just in content to help pet parents but also in variety because quite frankly life is a multi dimensional! In life there are ups and downs and everything in between. It’s not all black and white. There are plenty of gray areas to explore; hence the feature friday and monday inspiration posts on this blog.
In growing this blog there has been a lot of trial and error. Some things have worked great and others not so much. And that’s where my failure comes in. Perhaps I put my eggs in too many baskets or spread myself a bit thin when I didn’t think I was, but the memorial jewelry shop did not work out as I hoped. Sooooooooooooo….
I’m sure you’re thinking, “So what’s that got to do with me?” Well, seeing how my failures are only now learning lessons for me, I want to turn around and pay it forward for others to benefit. I know the token of appreciation is small however there is heart behind it. It means way more to me to make someone else feel good or positively impact their lives for the better over any profit. I very much appreciate the support and follows of my growing blog since the beginning and want to pay it forward. I’ve shut down the jewelry blog shop and turning it into an opportunity for you.
