I am not talking about spiritually or emotionally investing in yourself which is important but how much money do you spend on your well being? I never really paid that much attention before to that kind of thing. I don’t spend a lot of money on myself per se but what I do spend tends to be on experiences then something that gives tangible dividends.
I know I need to work on my writing if I ever want to write books that people will want to read and buy. How much do I invest in my writing? Business owners how much do you invest in your business? How do you determine if its worth it or if you have spent enough? People always say it takes money to make money. Another saying is you get what you pay for, so if I am putting out a product that I didn’t really invest any money, what is the quality of that product?
Writing is multilayered you are first and foremost selling yourself before you are selling a product. I have to be comfortable with the world knowing my business. I think I have more or less gotten over people knowing my business. I have moved on to level 2. How bad do I want it? What are my writing goals? What am I willing to sacrifice and invest?
It’s been almost a year since I published my first post. I need to start thinking about what’s next. If I put money into myself, into my writing and I don’t succeed, did I waste my money?
Spending money on my writing is taking the step to take it more seriously. A way to be held accountable and get some good constructive criticism.
Bloogers/Writers have you taken classes? Were they helpful? Do you have any recommendations?

Too right if anything is going to be if any worth there has to be some investing to be done. You asked if as a blogger any of us have invested anything in our writing. Personally the biggest investment I have made is reading as much as I have been able and continue to read other people’s work. I am glad I was able to sign up for two courses which were offered by WordPress under the Blogging Uni. Those two courses enhanced my writing.
