I’m sure everybody has someone in mind that you want to aspire to. Whether it’s a pop star, movie actor, footballer, entrepreneur, politician, your auntie or whatever, there is a person you look up to and would most like to emulate.
Is this healthy? Of course it is, as long as you do it for the right reasons. It’s good to have a mentor, a goal, an aspiration, a focus. Without it your life is empty and frustrating, meaningless and dull. Whatever motivates you, to see yourself successful in your fantasy role, raking in money or basking in fame, constantly in demand and the first name on people’s lips, what a wonderful dream to power you on in your life or business (or both).
So what’s my dream? It’s not untold wealth, but recognition. Sometime in the near future I would like to become the English version of Denise Wakeman, the American blogging guru. I don’t know if that niche is filled in this country yet, but if it isn’t, I want to be the one that does. I want to have written my first blogging book within five years, and become a blogging consultant, speaking all over the country and charging large fees for my advice, guidance and design.
But I won’t forget my roots in the Fairy Blog Mother. Her existance may expire over the years, but hopefully because of her magic wand I will be able to build up my reputation and expertise. Her main purpose of helping bloggers at all stages to create successful blogs will still live on, but in a more authoritative guise, and most likely under my own name. The concept of explaining that blogs are not only vital for a successful business, but that they aren’t scary and are easy to create, will continue to be the mainstay of my blogging aspirations.
So, the next stage is to make positive strides towards achieving that goal, slowly, carefully and consistently, within the means I have at this present time. Extensive research needs to be undertaken to find out how to to reach my target audience, what has already been written so that my book will be different, relevant and entertaining, and to develop a style that is recognisable, acceptable and profitable.
