    It can be tough, but I always think: “No matter how well someone is doing, someone is always doing better!” So why fret? :)

    Meeting bloggers and creating that support network has been an incredible force in my life. I wouldn’t give up this life for anything!

      That’s an awesome attitude Desiree. And you’re right, we get to meet the most amazing women in this business. We are so blessed.

    Great thoughts! I always remind myself “I’m doing what I love.” Yes, I may wish I could be doing what someone else is doing as well, but either way, I’m privileged to do what I do.

      Exactly. We never could have imagined this a decade ago.

    I agree with the be your own cheerleader and stay positive. You have to take pride when you do succeed and reward yourself.

      Yes, it sure can be hard though. It’s funny how women are so much kinder to other people than themselves.

    i dont have a blog, but i do sometimes see people’s lives in blogs and get jealous. I try to remind myself that we only see the parts of people’s lives online that they choose to share with us, meaning there are plenty of messy things we probably want no part of.

      Exactly… behind the blogs our lives are chaos. (And in my case, I mean that literally. LOL)

    I don’t blog but keep an even keel and realize that life is what is important.

    Low expectations or “how do I know what I’m saying is worth saying?”. Then again I’m not making any money from it.

    Well said. I SO agree with everything. I have noticed a trend with my fellow entrepreneurs and publishers like you both. Those that help and support others tend to be the most successful!

      Yes, it is a common thing to see amongst entrepreneurs and publishers… you’re right. The more “good” you put out there, the more that comes back to you.

    Love this Susan – some great tips! Especially agree with finding your own tribe – finding like-minded supportive bloggers in recent years has really lifted me up mentally when dealing with some of the harshness of being in this space.

    And as you said – social media is a gift! We are lucky to have the opportunities we have in today’s age! I am thankful every day I can stay home with my kids while still working to help support the family. Such a good reminder for us all.

    There are times when I’m feeling down, that I get a little jealous of my friends. I remind myself that I’m having a rough time and things will turn around. I am happy for my friends and I let them know. I also step back, take a deep breath and do something that I love, like read :)

    I don’t currently have a blog that is up and running but am in the process of trying to get one going.
    I might be able to see how others could get jealous but for me I’m just not that type of person.
    It would personally just make me strive harder in hopes that mine will one day be as good as others.

    I realize that having and running a blog is a lot of work. And I am most grateful to the bloggers that post honest reviews and giveaways.
    It gives me the ability to find out all I need to know about an item (both good and bad) and make an informed decision.

    I know that I, myself, am very fortunate to be able to travel and spend time with friends and family like I do. I post pictures of all my road trips with these people and I wonder sometimes if my blessings make other people feel bad. I try to include all my friends and share in my spoilage whenever I can.

    I don’t get jealous. WHen I see a great blog I applaud them and think to myself that I need to get busy learning more to enhance my own.

    I agree and never thought about this aspect.We all need to be thankful for what we have,for it can be taken away in a flash.

    I stopped blogging several years ago — partly due to the “Mommy Wars” and the bad vibes that became more of a norm as the blogging world grew and partly to focus on my own business. I recently started blogging again because I missed sharing my quirkiness. My theory is that what you see online is only part of the story — life may not be as glorious as depicted on a blog or on social media. Quiet success has always been more of my style.
