I have been writing for quite some time on medium and WordPress and am thoroughly enjoying myself. Love this regular unburdening process. I have got to know myself better. Also am loving articles by fellow bloggers. Varied as they are, helps broaden my vision.
But, one thing I neglected was my regular work as a businessmen. I got so deep into writing that I completely forgot to earn my living, leaving me in a limbo. Today, I resolved to finish my regular work first and than tour medium and WordPress and it really helped. My hope rose, felt more confident. I think I need to have a balance of both my worlds,professional and passion. Seems to work for me. Maybe, you can give it a try.
