I'm really considering giving up this online business thing.... I don't think folks realize (or care) about how much time and energy I put into it. I work REALLY hard on everything I create, and then spend even more time on the website and all the advertisements etc. Its not easy. I feel like only a small handful of people take notice and care... and those are my closest friends & family. Everyone else could care less. I suppose the economy doesn't help things because people don't have the excess money to waste on handmade trinkets, crochet items, and artwork when they can be spending the money of food for the table and I totally understand that... So the question is, is it worth it? Is it worth all the time, aggravation, and being ignored? Should I just go back to creating when I feel like it... and only for myself and my friends and family? Or should I get over it and not give up? Will things get better, and more active, or am I fighting a losing battle?
I think that I'm leaning towards throwing in the towel at the moment. I'm really considering just creating to make myself happy as a hobby and lose all the excess stress of it all. I love drawing and painting, crocheting etc. Its who I am and who I've always been....
My best friend said that maybe I would be happier doing it because I want to and not as a business.... maybe she's right. My minds sort of all mushed up with thoughts, questions, doubts, and concerns... it feels like the angel on one shoulder, and the demon on the other whispering in my ear.. ya know? Anyone got any advice?
With Love, the oober confused,
