Celebrating My 200th Blog Post!!

About two and a half years ago, I decided to start this thing called "blogging." I had a reasonable amount of information on blogging from college, and figured this was the best way to start my political journey. Little did I know I would be meeting important political figures and getting involved with an important movement would occur from said blogging. Hell, I didn't even know if I'd be writing a 200th blog post, but here we are! I can't believe this is where I am at. It's crazy to look back on.

When I first started writing, I always feared what could happen to me and my loved ones if I became outspoken. You see the stories of conservative or Republican college students attacked for their views, either physically and verbally. I didn't want that to happen, but I knew I found this voice for a reason, and I intended to use it. Now that I am writing my 200th article, I have realized how much I enjoy blogging. I enjoy engaging with my audience, either through social media or my writings. Sure, I've had my share of writer's block, but I always found a way to write something new!

What I do with my blog now is make it as interesting as possible. Some of my articles have fallen flat on their face, while some took off in popularity. Some articles become a big hit, even when I don't think of them as overly popular. For instance, my "Which country singers are Republican or conservative" is my third most popular article, which I would have never guessed it could be. My "Was Britney Spears a victim of human trafficking" was well-received as well. I think people will listen to what you write if it aligns with their interests.

Something I have learned as a conservative blogger is to find your niche in political writing. What does that mean? The number of political topics to focus on can appear endless. Abortion, local politics, cancel culture, free speech, gun rights, education; the list goes on. To me, conservatives who writes a political blog should have a certain number of issues to focus on. You can easily get burned out writing about ALL the political topics out there. If you knew of my early writings, I used to write on EVERYTHING. Now? I keep a limited amount of topics I focus on, so I can give it my all. These are issues that matter deeply to me, or topics I care about. When you find those topics you care about or focus closely on, writing about it will come naturally.

I have a number of topics I choose to focus on. Human trafficking, abortion, pornography, cancel culture, social media censorship, country music. These are the main topics I write on. Unsurprisingly, these are topics I enjoy focusing on. If you are going to begin a blog, podcast, or make videos, I'd recommend making a list of different political topics, then narrow the list down to 5 - 7 issues that you care about.

What I do want to stress to anyone who may be thinking about becoming a political blogger, podcaster, or video content maker is this: Don't let it be the only important part of your life. People think if you're in politics, that can only be your life. You'll burn out from that. These things can drag your soul down. Especially if you're involved in human trafficking like me. These topics can cause unneeded stress or even trauma if you don't separate yourself from these issues. Find other hobbies to enjoy in your free time. When I need a break from the stresses of life or politics, I like playing with my goats. It brings me much happiness. Or I'll put on my headphones and blast country music. Point is you have to allow yourself to enjoy life.

If it wasn't for my blog, I would have never learned about human trafficking. It only happened because I started writing and listening to the news. Now it's one of the most important issues I focus on. 

I'm also grateful for the people I've "met" in my journey. Most of the people I speak to is via social media, but I learn a lot from these individuals. Some of my favorite accounts include Mahgdalen Rose, Olivia Rondeau, Joshua Broome, Vince Dao, Red Eagle Politics, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, and numerous others. I've enjoyed speaking to these individuals, who have helped me with article ideas!

To celebrate my blog's 200th article, I'm creating a promo to get 50% off my store (and for the Christmas season of course). Use the code XMAS50 to get 50% off your items. This will be available for the rest of December! In closing, I'd like to thank my readers and supporters who have believed in me since the beginning. You guys are amazing, and I'm very grateful to each of you. Happy 200th, and here's to many more!

To close, here are 5 random facts about me!

1) I listened to John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" while writing these facts.
2) I'm studying to get my real estate license.
3) I'm currently reading "Loomered: How I Became The Most Banned Woman in the World" by Laura Loomer.

Have a Merry Christmas! Enjoy the holidays with your loved ones!
