Back to work today after a lovely long weekend. I’m quite the fan of Mondays so this week I’m a fan of Tuesday but that’s not to say that I’m not happy that it’s another short week ahead. I enjoy my job very much but I also enjoy my time not at work too.
When I first started blogging I looked at several blogs for inspiration. Some of the bloggers I knew and some I didn’t. Meri was one of the bloggers that I knew personally and also set my sights on as ‘the type of blogger I want to be when I grow up’. A couple of years ago Meri took at break from SL and stopped blogging…leaving quite a hole in my daily reading. But she’s back!
I got to thinking about how much has changed in the blogging world since Meri took her break. The changes to Flickr, the rise of Black Dragon as a photography viewer, the mass-movement to Instagram, the ‘sharing’ community on Facebook…
Then I thought about what hasn’t changed, reminded by a post that I saw on Facebook yesterday. There are still far too many bloggers obsessing about what others are doing instead of focusing on what they are doing. I honestly believe that the most successful people in life (real or second) don’t do that. Yes, they look, they admire, they may even gain some inspiration…I know I do, but they don’t spend time thinking about what others are doing ‘wrong’ in their mind. They consider what they can do better or how they can be unique. They have a set idea of what success looks like for them and they work toward that goal. If YOU continue improving, if YOU keep developing, learning and keeping your eye on your goals then you won’t have time to give thought to others you think are less worthy than you of the blogger spots you want.
Look up, not down. That should be your direction of travel.
Anyways, check out Meri’s latest blog…it’s full of egg snobbery and other good stuff!
