Why Don’t I Blog About Gossip More Often?

danithedreamgirl

I could easily find stories that appeal to the average reader and highlight the juicy stuff like Dwayne Wade being a father to a newborn while he just got engaged to Gabriel Union.  I could focus on Chris Brown’s visit to rehab after finding himself in legal trouble once again.  I could even document the day-to-day antics of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.  It’s hard not to fall into the trap of blogging about gossip that would bring me thousands of site visits every day; it’s REALLY hard.  But, when I first created danithedreamgirl.com I knew that I had a vision and a purpose of what I wanted my brand to represent.  I wanted to encourage and inspire others to do better, to think about their life and its direction and to follow their dreams.

I sprinkle some gossip in my posts every once in a while, when the story has an alternative or deeper meaning.  But, in reality the gossip market is saturated with meaningless tid bits.  Instead, I wanted people to be able to read something with a purpose.  I’m still a growing site and it’s hard to take a more positive approach to blogging, but I get small reminders everyday that I’m on the right track.  Most of my close friends know that my inspiration for taking the plunge into building my site was and is Necole Bitchie.  Her story is amazing and in many ways, I find myself relating to her on many levels.  She has no clue who I even am, but if she ever reads this I hope she knows that her story is what helped me find the courage to share my voice with all of you.

I’m at a really difficult place in my life at the moment.  I find myself going through personal struggles that often times seem hard to tackle.  I lost my job and am hustling to pay my bills by working long hours and using every bit of energy I have.  Who knows what’s next for me, but for the first time in years I can say that I am starting over.  From the bare minimum.  It’s a scary place to be, but I say all of this to remind my readers that THIS is why I started my site.  Making danithedreamgirl.com a big enough site to generate a decent amount of revenue, becoming an industry leading blogger and inspiring people along the way are my goals.  I’m just now in a place to take a serious shot at giving it my all.

Let the story begin…
