What Successful Blogging Means To God

As a blogger, or I should say as an entrepreneur, I know how challenging it can be to want success so badly and get . . . nothing.

Seeing Success God's Way


I've always believed in having a positive outlook on everything, and usually, I stay true to this. But I also know how unbelievably hard it is to keep smiling when it seems like one thing after another is going wrong.

Some people generalize when it comes to “bloggers”. They either don’t think it’s a real job, think it’s too easy, or think we shouldn't be making money or we should be making more money.

Sometimes, it feels negative being a blogger because it gets such a bad name. Some think it's all about money. Lol

"Oh. You blog? So how much do you make?"

That isn't fair on the people who blog for real reasons (with good intentions).

We write and create what we care about and believe so that everyone can read, see, share, enjoy, be inspired.

OK. Agreed. Some of us blog to make money. 

However, personally, I strive to focus on one thing:

Utiilizing and maximizing what God has given me, because I will have to give an account one day.

Sometimes I get scared about putting my story online, because we don't know the monitoring spirits among us. But I blog anyway.

God’s view of success is directly tied to faithfulness and fruitfulness.

Our success is not based on numbers. It’s based on what happens when we use our gifts to cultivate faith and point others back to God. 

Have I been fruitful?
Have I been portraying Christ?
Am I shinning the light?
Am I good? Do people desire to be like Christ when they interact with me?

That’s the key. That’s a mark of distinction.

BLOGGING IS A MINISTRY.

The blogging ministry is appointed by God; it’s not a matter of size, wealth, or competition. This truth should put everything into proper perspective.

Success is not in numbers. Not in stats. Not in traffic.

It’s funny how some people see blogging as a scam oh. Lol.

I was in a group discussion and when I told them I blogged, they said:

“Oh, cool. You want to buy a house on Banana Island too, huh?”

No, actually.

I want to make a difference in the little way I can. 

Forgive the title of this post. It is somewhat random. I am not just talking to bloggers but to those who do BIG things that people look down upon.

When you’re in a situation like this, you've got to stay positive. I've found there’s nothing you can do to change what anybody thinks about WHO you are or WHAT you do.

If it's the right thing, keep doing it. Sweetie, do not be moved by sarcastic comments and criticisms . . .

Don’t give up.
Don’t let the pressure overwhelm you.
Keep moving. One step at a time.
Be confident in how far you’ve come and where you can go.
Work hard.
Be grateful.
And stay positive.


Do you ignore your critics or make them understand? What does success mean to you?
