Happy new week friend. Hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as I did; it was indeed so awesome down here. I know I’ve not been following my initial blogging schedule since this year started. What i mean is my normal publishing of new posts twice/week but, I now want to assure you that I’m fully back and from now on, I will always stick to my blogging schedule. Just hold me accountable if I fail on this again:).
Now, I want to ask you a small question: Who/what do you think you are in the blogosphere? I’m sure you know what I mean therefore, I need you to answer this question in the comment section of this post please.
But I also want to tell you something today of which you might or might not have been aware of. I want to let you know that, whatever you think you are in this business does not matter at all I mean, it’s simply irrelevant.

In the holy Bible, I remembered when Jesus was asking his disciples a similar question……..Who do people think I am? Everyone was giving him different answers until he now asked them again……. Who do you people think I am? Peter now responded that, you are the son of God.
I’ve come to notice that some bloggers usually think that they are the best, they usually believe that there is no other person that can do it except or without them but, such mindset is very deadly and, it can liquidate you before you even know what you are doing, this does not apply in blogging alone but also, I general life.
You see, whatever you assume you are in the blogosphere does not matter at all, what matters is what people think you are, what matters is what your readers and your visitors think you are and, that is exactly what you should pay more attention to.
Carrying yourself up and down thinking you’re the ultimate because of one think or the other is not going to do you any good at all therefore, if you really want to know what you truly are, if you really want to know your true worth in this business then, conduct a survey on your blog and ask your readers what Jesus asked his disciples, ask them what they think you are and, see what they will say.
Pride always goes before failure
Ones you put pride first in whatever you are doing, the next thing that will always follow is your downfall. Because you’re getting some $$$$$ from your blog or because you’ve started getting enough traffic more than others which is very good and, you should be clapped for because, it’s not easy but, that’s not a criteria for you to start misbehaving and thinking that you’re now there. Once you start nurturing such mindset, you will most likely go back to your starting point.
Whatever you think you are, once you look around you, you will discover that you’re nothing, you will find out that there are many other people that are better off than you but, they are not making noise.

And the worst part of it all is that, the moment you start having such thinking, you will start ignoring those tasks that actually put you there and by then, you will start coming down. I’m writing this post based of my own personal experience.
So, the point I’m trying to make here is that, we bloggers should always be humble to ourselves and to others because, we can really do more. We’re not really better than others so, let’s see ourselves as equal because in such way, we will be able to achieve more.
It’s also good to carry out this survey, ask your readers and friends what/who they think you are, this will help you in many ways.
And, I want you to also tell me what/who you think I am also, tell me what you think you are please, this is very important to me and, I’m waiting for your response on the comment section.
I will really be glad if you help to spread the news here by tweeting and sharing this post with your friends all over the social media.
Wishing you a very fabulous and productive week.
