Keep the Faith
It takes courage to hit the publish button. Within a split second, your words, images, thoughts, beliefs, policies, lessons – you are exposed to the world on your site. Honor that courage.
“Keeping the faith” is not about religion. It is about the promises you make to yourself and others. The promises to be the best you can be, to be truthful to thine self and others, and to be consistent with your moral, professional, and personal standards.
People love consistency. They like things happening on a regular schedule.
They also like to have their expectations met – consistently. Faithfully.
If you are a funny blogger, telling funny stories and providing non-stop laughter and joy, take care in risking that consistency by turning morbid and morose. Treat a change in behavior and mood like spices in food. A little bit goes a long way.
It’s wonderful to surprise people, to shake things up once in a while, but keep it special. That’s what defines special.
Have faith in yourself and your abilities to have your say fairly and consistently on your site. Passion will ebb and flow. That’s the nature of it. Keep working at it.
The world favors persistence.
