Blogs, blogs, blogs

13 May

These days there’s something like blogs in existence. The internet is filled with all kinds of blogs, written by all kinds of people. In the category of blogs trying to help other people with their life, everyone claims to have the best answer. Whether explicit, or implicit.

Of course when searching for your passion it’s nice to turn to such blogs. I haven’t found any that are about finding your passion, but there are plenty of blogs I follow that sometimes delve on the subject in one way or another.

I once commented on a post about following your passion, that I didn’t know what my passion was and so it was hard to do what the post stated. Even though the post itself made me very excited. Another reader responded to my comment with some book recommendations.

– “I Could Do Anything, If Only I Knew What It Was,” by Barbara Sher
– “Finding Your Own North Star” by Martha Beck.

I bought the first one and I’m busy it. It really appealed to me and I’m truly trying to do all the exercises. (usually I just read self-help books without taking action, which totally doesn’t help) More on the book in later posts! After all this post was about blogs, not books. Here are two blogs I follow that have content that appeals to me.

Zen Habits
Leo promotes living a simpler life. Especially his clutter challenge appealed to me. I’ve been slowly getting rid of things in my home to find peace there. When I was unpacking my stuff I totally realized I had way too much clutter, things that I don’t actually need. I’ve thrown things out, making pictures before saying goodbye. It really helps lift my spirit. And a lifted spirit is more ready to take on big things like finding my passion. Out of the blogs I’m following, Zen Habits is probably the one I look most forward to a new post.

Courage 2 Create
This blog is more focused on writing. Ollin also talks about life and how to apply certain life lessons to writing. Since writing is one of my hobbies I really enjoy this blog. I learn things both for my life and for my writing specifically. This makes every post enjoyable on more than one level. I really like how there’s always humor in his posts, even though they are serious. It keeps things from getting too heavy.

Just a really short post this time, I really wanted to share my two favorite blogs with you. I really think blogs are a great way to read about other people’s experiences and learn from them.

I want to follow a blog about finding your passion, but I haven’t actually stumbled upon one. Do you know one? Do you write one? Let me know in the comments!

    Following your passion!! My problem with that is my passion often changes from day to day…focused…that’s what I need to be!

      :) thank you. And I don’t think it’s necessarily a problem to “go with the flow”, unless you try to get something done haha. Maybe it’s an idea to write down all your passions. Then look at the list and ask yourself a few questions. Which came to mind easiest? Which one(s) make you feel the best? etc.
      I would say you can then prioritize them. Telling yourself that yes you want to do passion B, but this day/week/month I commited to passion A. And next day/week/month I can do passion B again.
      This time perhaps you can find focus without cutting yourself short.
      I hope this helps in any way!! To give a personal example, I both like writing and drawing, often I find myself in the mood for drawing when writing. Or visa versa. I just tell myself exactly what I suggested. No I now choose to focus on writing, I can draw again another time.
