After my last post I started thinking. Not much thinking, I didn’t want to make the world explode, but during my short time of thinking, I came to a realization. Maybe the reason I feel that I’m not really good at any one thing is because I don’t dedicate time to getting better at any one thing. With that being said, there are a lot of things I enjoy, so what should I focus on getting better at? I can just pick what I like the most, because then I would still pick 5 or 6 different things, so I must come up with a different way of choosing. So then, I thought maybe I should break the things I enjoy down into catagories, and choose based on which one provides the most and best benefit for me in my current situation. I have things like Web Design/Programming, Filming, Video Editing, Computer Repair, etc that could all be considered work related, but could also help provide some extra income (which I desperately need) by helping others out. Then I have other possible income making hobbies such as crocheting, cross stitching, painting, and making other things. That’s two categories, but then I have other things I can’t really fit into either one of those, and don’t really make income like cooking, video games, reading, geocaching, trading card games, you get the picture.
So out of all of those, which one gives me the most benefits in my current situation? By the way, I know my categories are totally centered around money, but like I said, I organized them around my current situation. With me in need of money, and the third category not helping any in that respect, I figure I can throw that out for now, which leaves work, and extra income. Now to attempt to choose between those two. Can I choose between those two? I should be getting better at the things I do at work anyway. Those mostly center around filming, editing and computer repair. I have also done some of those on the side in the past, but those other than at work, those type of extra jobs seem harder to come by. There’s the web design side too, but nobody seems to want a website these days…. at least not from me. I go then to my extra income activities. I absolutely love to cross stitch, but a good quality cross stitch takes a long time. I’ve got one now that I’ve been working on for months, and I’m still not close to being done. Cross Stitching doesn’t help me right now. The other things I’ve tried, and I even have a store up at etsy.com with a few of my items, but it seems that I’m either not that good yet, or people just aren’t interested in my stuff. If I go with me not being good enough (what this blog is about), then which one do I put my time toward? Crochet? Painting? Making Journals? Building things? I know one way to decide, but it’s going to require people’s responses. What would you be most interested in buying? Would you rather have something crocheted, a painting, a journal, a sign, or maybe you would want a website, or need your computer fixed. What I’m saying is what do you guys think I should focus on? What do you see as being the one, or two things people would want or need the most? Give me some input!
