Why is making a blog post such hard work?
Your guess is as good as mine!
Finding a voice on the internet has been a mission of mine for going on ten years. It is still unexplainable to me why there are so many successful bloggers in the world and I am not one of them. There are several tangible reasons that I understand. Those reasons are why I have not been as successful as I have wanted in many endeavors. The concept of blogging and putting out interesting material is very simple. Yet the application of it in real life is notoriously difficult.
My first website was a project called Hercules TV. It was going to be an adult entertainment site that covered aspects of the industry that seemed to be neglected. Everyone I spoke to about it thought it was a great idea. However, when I finally got the website up and running it did not generate much interest. I learned quickly that in business there is a distinct difference between how people respond to what you say and how they respond to what you do. There seems to be a sense of obligation when someone is standing there talking to you. Even if they are not listening they going to pretend like they’re listening, at least for a moment. However, when it comes down to actually giving time to any particular idea people are highly selective. The internet is a perfect example.
When someone sits down in front of their device whether it be a PC or a phone, they are in complete control. This is the one area where a person cannot be bullied or told what to do. Then are going to click on what they like and give their attention to what interests them the most no matter how ridiculous it may seem to someone else. Because there is an ocean of content on the internet competing for everyone’s attention it is very trying to grab someone’s eye and hold it there. Creating a successful blog can seem like swinging for the fence. Yet, every time I feel like I want to give up I hear another success story that makes me want to continue on the journey.
Hercules King.Com is an evolved version of Hercules TV. The website is going to be a combination of my social media pages and a more in-depth look into the various thoughts on my mind. This includes the life I have lived before, present, and future. To this point, much of my past has been confusing and somewhat depressing. I struggle with the Demons of the path I walked before I got to where I am. My current situation is a very healthy one. I know that there are many others out there who can identify with the painful existence that I had to live up until recent years. My life was marred with depression, substance abuse, bad relationships, and failed business projects. In one calendar year, I lost my career, my marriage, and my family. This all happened in a span of about 4 months. It is hard to explain what is worse, something like that happening, having known that my life was leading to that point for years, or the aftermath where you are completely alone with only your thoughts.
Hercules King. Com will use photos and some videos of my past to create a relatable picture for other people who are going through trying times in their lives. The idea is to put all of these ghosts to rest by documenting the old stories. This will lead to telling tales about the present, as well as adventures for the future.
