When you first start blogging, the experience is exciting because just like anything else you start, you get to work your way up from the bottom. You see the potential of where this hustle can take you and you don’t want to stop.
After a while, the process may begin to get a little tedious because other responsibilities start to come into your life like more hours at work and dealing with family issues as well.
When in the moment of dealing with these different obstacles you may feel like you want to give up writing but this is actually where you need it the most. Blogging becomes your getaway and you get to write after a long day of work or when you're really stressed.
At times it will be hard to write about anything but this is simply part of the journey, every blogger has gone through rough times like this and they’ve pushed through it.

You have the opportunity to write every day if you really wanted to and once you see the benefits that it provides for you, you’re not going to want to stop. When we’re dealing with anxiety, it’s sometimes best to take on a new side hustle or something that can take our minds away from the subject matter.
