The Pleasure and Pain of Rejection

Let me first just say rejection fucking sucks. I submitted an article to a high traffic website, which I thought fit and then this morning get an email telling me sorry doesnt fit, I hope you find a home for it.

That made my heart feel heavy, I spent a good time on that blog post and it offered good tips and advice. See, Im trying to build my blog and the rejection doesn’t help because Im using uncommon practices besides the usual share to social media and social bookmarking sites. I also went out of my comfort zone submitting my blog post. Im waiting to hear back from another big high trafficked website. Now Im nervous as hell.

I was also rejected a few weeks ago for a telemarketing job, I was wiling to go far with it and commit. That hurt too. I guess everything happens for a reason because I wouldnt be able to do that job at this time now. I still think I would have aced it though. I always wanted to master a sales phone job and I thought the job was perfect for what I wanted to accomplish. According to them though I wasnt convincing enough for the rebuttals.

These two things right here make me question myself and if I am good enough. I know Im still unclear as my identity of a writer or not, or if there is a difference between a writer and a blogger. But I know I have something good and interesting to offer and I want to be a better writer and blogger. I know Im not the best writer but that hasnt ever stopped me before. Ive been blogging for YEARS. In high school besides writing in an online journal, I also wrote music lyrics.

Anyway, maybe its a blessing, or maybe its my curse but my problem is Im unable to give up. I may get rejected at this other blog too but I know I will probably keep submitting blog posts to both sites and other high traffic blogs as well. I even had an idea to hire a ghostwriter to write the good stuff to those sites and link to my blog for the promotional part so I can increase my traffic. Of course though a ghost writer isnt cheap neither.

Many successful people have been failures so I like to keep that in mind when I do something. I want to look back and laugh my ass off because I proved so many people wrong and I will. Now Im thinking of more places to write and submit my work to. Remember if you ever feel like giving up just remember why you started in the first place.

I do this because my blog is like my baby, my second born and I want to make an full time income from it. I know I can and will. A lot of people who are doing better at blogging (or whatever) may judge you and tell you you suck or people who arent making no effort in their lives to reach their dreams may tell you the same thing but neither of those groups opinions fucking matter. The only thing that matters is what you want and you have to continue to improve on your craft. I have been making improvements on my blogging/blog and continue to do so daily.

Whats the worst rejection you have ever faced? How did it make you feel?
