Fight Like A Squirrel For Your Blog
Since I’ve been living in South Carolina, I’ve never seen so many squirrels in my entire life! They’ve got to be the fastest little creatures next to Speedy Gonzales.
Just the other day, as I was driving, one fell out of a tree – right in my truck’s path! I screamed because I just knew he was a goner – but no… he scurried away so quickly to the safety of the curb that it was almost a blur.
Then later, in the yard, I noticed two squirrels digging vigorously for hidden nuts. A cat comes along and begins to hiss at them, and for a moment they seemed to be cornered.
Then suddenly, they burst forth and simultaneously began to tussle with the cat. To my surprise, the cat runs off whimpering.
For some strange reason (probably because I’m strange), this reminded me of the fight and constant battle that comes with blogging.
Squirrels are generally gentle, but when their fight or flight mechanism kicks in, they are unstoppable.
That’s the way it is with blogging. You’ve either got to be willing to fight or get ready to pack it up and flee.
There are constant obstacles that threaten to overtake a blog if they aren’t handled quickly enough. If it’s not a technical issue with hosting, then it’s the constant time crunch that comes with keeping up with a regular posting schedule.
Sometimes, I feel like I’ve always got to be running at squirrel speed: I’m at constant battle with an overflowing inbox, I can’t keep up with all the networking and income opportunities that present themselves and dissolve just as quickly, in the same instant.
It can be quite frustrating. But like everything else in life, I’m like the squirrel, when I get cornered, that’s when I fight the hardest. If that means I’ve got to pull an all-nighter or stay glued to my computer for several hours straight, that’s what I’m going to do.
Of course, I’m not going to let my blog dictate the quality of my life – if I want to get out and take a walk by the lake, then that’s what I’m going to do. But when it comes crunch time, I’m going to fight, scurry and scamper like the squirrels I see running around the yard.
What about you? Will you fight for your blog or flee?
