How Do You Begin a New Blog After Failing with an Old Blog?

Two simple steps, guys.

1: Study your mistakes and learn from your mistakes.

2: Let go of the past.

Learning after studying makes you feel good, calm and confident because learning gives you clarity and study gives you a sense of knowing that you take the right path this time. Last time, you took the wrong path. That is OK. Let it go, as the kids say, today. Little kids. Frozen fans. The study, learn and then, let it go. Feels good to let go of the past and of course, you need to let go of the past to make room for a new, fun, freeing, present moment. Bloggers need to study and learn because even if your ego has a tough time swallowing its pride and feeling through your errors with your past blog, the only way to not repeat the same mistakes is through careful study of your old blog. Where did you mess up? How did you mess up? Did you learn blogging from a top blogging tips blogger? Did you follow their advice? Did you generously create and connect for thousands of hours? If you failed, I guarantee, you did not do all of this stuff because if you genuinely followed these steps you would have succeeded.

Toss in generous, trusting vibes, of course. Blogging is energy; you get what you vibe. Or, you act based on how you vibe. Successful bloggers vibe generosity and help folks freely, trusting in themselves and trusting in the process. Do that this time, and you will certainly succeed with your blog. I believe in you and know you can do it but you need to know success is yours for this magical blogging journey to unfold in your experience.

Let. It. Go. I came across a Quora question pretty much asking this blog post title. A rocking but clingy blogger held onto their old, failing blog. Bad move. How can you move forward from a loving, generous, trusting vibe if you fill your vibe with fear, pain and failure by clinging to an old failure courtesy of your old blog? Your old blog and the failure yields no power over you unless you lend your power to the blog, and, to the failure. Let it go. Doesn’t that feel good? Doesn’t it feel like you released a yoke weighing you down for months or years? I know it feels good. I routinely let go old things and states of mind to keep growing online and offline. Nobody succeeds by clinging to the past because the past is gone and never returns. Imagine attempting to cling to a ghost; this is like clinging to the past. Plus, clinging to failure scares you into not trying in whatever venture you failed at, in the past. People holding on to failure remain gun shy about trying again in the endeavor. Bloggers; feel better immediately by releasing old, failed blogs to make room for new, successful blogs. Hope springs eternal. Possibility grows out of letting go failure, to be present, and to see how many opportunities you have in front of your eyes, for seizing and succeeding.

Feeling better, blogging buddies of mine? I thought so 🙂
