Admitting is HALF

I've heard that admitting something is half the battle...
Well, here it goes.

[that's Largest font, Helvetica, because Helvetica has the word hell in it]

I honestly don't know what to do about this dilemma of mine. But you can expect soon, sometime around the new year, that I might change things up again. I know I need a real webpage, and that is my goal--a money oriented goal--so, I think 2014 will be the year of the webpage for Bethanne Strasser. 

I try. I really do, but I don't have the passion to keep up!! Some people LOVE to blog, and they do it with effort yet so smoothly. Whereas, I flounder, look for resolutions, start again, flounder...etc. I think it's a sign that I need to figure something else out. So, bare with me...no wait. That's not right! Bear with me! I'm determined to get through the year on this blog. :D

And then, we'll see...


  1. It sounds like you've reached that "point." The one where blogging takes away more time from "real" writing than what it gives in return. A web page can be that way, too, but it often only needs small updates to keep it current.

    Blogging does take a bit of effort since each post it like a tiny story in itself. I have noticed that many authors have both a web site and a blog, but the blog doesn't get updated as much. Although you can have pages on Blogger (and other blogging platforms), blogging is more linear, like Twitter on steroids. A web site (you'll end up with more than just a page) is more hierarchical – a way to divide information about yourself and your writing.

    I guess you have to figure out what info you want to put on line and how you want it displayed – then decide which one works best.

    Plus, you're on more than one blog (HSG) and Twitter and Facebook. That's a lot to keep up!

    1. Well, the truth is, I've met some great people, blogging for as long as I have. But, at this point, I do see followers around in other spots, too. :)

      We'll see. I think part of my issue right now is coming off summer, no new writing, and no new writing in the foreseeable future. I want to write, all the time. I don't want all these other tasks getting in the way. Half the time I sit down, I'm checking my email, facebooking, and thinking of how/what/when to blog and get my name out there. But if I get out there and then have nothing to give, well the getting out there will have been pointless!! :D LOL

      Must write.

  2. It can be difficult to keep a blog going, and to come up with new content on a regular basis. Which is probably one of the reasons I started participating in three or four weekly memes. I recently posted by 300th Thursday Thirteen, and lately have been struggling more frequently with ideas. And sometimes I have the ideas, just not the time needed to put them together. And sometimes a bit of a break, a few days completely unplugged from the Internet, can be a huge help.

  3. I just started blogging and already I feel like I'm falling behind. I've got more drafts then real posts at this point. Don't give up.
