Just saying what the deal is.

I have so much to do on my site to get things rocking again. I have so much on my plate these days that I just sit here and ask myself “is it worth it?” I used to have the time to do posts and create content but these days it is really a challenge. No. Really. There are days where I want to completely want to delete my entire site that way I will never have to think of it again.

Don’t get me wrong I love all you guys and I value the time that you have spent engaging with everything on my site. It just doesn’t get the love that it deserves from me. I am serious as all get out. It makes me so frustrated to know that I have this great outlet for my creativity and my voice and I don’t take advantage of it.

I am also tired of people/companies/brands emailing wanting me to post something, spread the news, or pimp their product. Let me just say this…no way am I going to do ANYTHING for free. My time is my time and that time spent away from my family is worth something. I don’t get up everyday at 2:45 in the morning and then work for 12 hours at my day job for free! So these companies that want me to do work for them for free need to realize that if I get any spare time to work on my site it is going to be something awesome and amazing and it will either be either some heartfelt encounters in my daily life, stories of my kids, or products that will knock your socks off.

Sorry for the ranting people but I just had to be real and get this junk off of my chest because it is eating me up inside. Hopefully I will continue on with the site and if not well then I SUCK! Joking. See you soon. ;-)

Have fun,
Ryan

      Amen! I don’t think brands understand how much time we spend working our blogs and NOT spending time with our families to get their work posted. I hope you can find a way to make it all work.. otherwise I know He has bigger plans for you! :)

      i totally feel you, and i wasn’t even making money from my site. it became too much of a chore for me. i’m slowly going back into blogging, but it’ll be posts when i feel like it. i will not be a slave to it. i think if i treat it that way, i can enjoy it more when i do blog.
