A Tale of a Failed Blogger

If I died tomorrow and these were the last words I ever got to write – I’d be okay. That’s becuase I want to leave a legacy that inspires and motivates people to be their absolute best. I want you to be able to find motivation for life! So here are my top 7 motivational songs to help give you that kick in the butt you need to keep going!


Do you want the truth? Blogging is hard.

Most blogs only last about 6 months. Why is this?

It takes time.

Life gets in the way.

Most of us are doing it along side other ‘jobs’ or work related responsibiliites with the hope of one day making it our full time income – but that takes time. And after 6 months of practically trying to fit blogging into our already hectic lifestyles – it seems easier to give up and get a night shift job where we can see the monetary gain right away.

I’m in between my 5th and 6th month of trying to blog on a regular basis for business purposes. I’ll be honest, my monetary gain I’ve made so far isn’t even close to what a minium wage job would pay – at least not for the countless hours I’ve spent pouring myself into it.

This past week, my computer’s hard drive went out. I had to install a completely new harddrive. I lost all my blog files. All my photo files. All my designs. Everything that was on my computer where I thought it was safe. I cried. I wanted to give up.


Blogging is hard.

Life is hard.

But if you truly want to make a blogging business work – or any business for that matter – you have to give it time. I know this. But if I can be frank – it still sucks sometimes.


Honestly, I Felt Like Giving Up

I wanted to hide away from the world. I felt like a failure. I felt so ashamed. And not to mention feeling guilty for feeling this way – knowing quite well that I have so much more than others in the world. Talking about my computer problems shows just how silly my ‘first world’ problems are.

So, after pulling myself off the ground and unwrapping from the fetal position,  I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself. I know that if I want this – if I want to believe in myself, I need to keep writing. I need to keep researching.

No matter how hard.

No matter how long.

No matter what!

I am my biggest critic. I am my biggest threat.


I’ll be honest. Blogging for business purposes is hard. You find yourself engulfed in a niche and if you stray away from your topic, it can be hard. Not to mention the guilty feeling you get in the pit of your stomach!

This post doesn’t really fit in with my others. It may be outside of my niche – but that’s okay.

I’m not perfect. I’ve learned a lot in the past 6 months – but there’s so much more to learn! I didn’t have an active social media account when I started this venture. I’ve come so far. But even now, it feels as if I have so far to go.

I need to find motivation to keep going. And if I can, I want to encourage others to keep going as well. How do I find the strength to keep going?

I love listening to music that motivates me and inspires me to keep going – to keep living the life I am because I know it’s the path to take me to where I want to be.

I also try to take it one day at a time and enjoy the little things. Enjoy the smiles on my children’s faces. Enjoy the time I spend outside in the sun.

Today I want to share my favorite motivational songs with you. These are no where near all of them, but it’s my top 7 (for today.) They’ve helped me get up and keep going. I hope you can derrive the same inspiration from them as I do!

Blogging is hard.
Life is hard.

    Hello Kayla,

    Very inspirational article! I am rarely about to read an entire article, but yours did it!

    Your article speaks the truth of how we all feel. Well, not so much for myself yet, since my blog is only about 3 weeks old haha.

    I’ve bookmarked this article, hopefully if i ever feel down, I can reflect on this article and keep going.

    I’m going to listen to the songs over time as well!

      Yes, this blogging adventure has been exciting! It’s a roller coaster of ups and downs, but I suggest finding what motivates you and keep THAT in the forefront of your mind on a daily basis. There will be good and hard times! But we need them both to succeed! 

      Best of luck to you!
