Hi its Dermot here again. I have been blogging for nearly a month now and as this is all new to me, I was trying to get used to it and mainly write what I feel.
To the best of my knowledge, the main purpose of a blog is to create value for the reader and not so for the writer. Call a spade a spade, I do want to make a living out of this, so my goal is to create leads and sales.
Thinking about this did not sit with me well at the time, as I also do not feel passionate about telling people how best to affiliate market, what to do or not to do or how to navigate the web, as I am just learning myself and am not confident enough to advise anyone else on this.
I had to go away and re evaluate my Niche, who am I marketing to, what are their likes, dislikes, pain points and what do I want to tell them. What is my expertise. I was wracking my head over this and then I had an epiphany. "Recovery from Addiction Series"
Of course, what am I, & what do I do? I am an Alcoholic and an Addiction Counsellor. I’ve been an alcoholic since I first drank at 15 and eventually got sober at 34 & have been a recovering alcoholic to date. I have been a practicing Addiction Counsellor since 2006 to date, so that’s 12 years experience working in a treatment centre. I have also studied CBT and Life Coaching. There is a ton of value there that I can share with other recovering addicts/alcoholics and even people still in active addiction.
Let's talk about recovery from addiction and I will share with you all my experience, strength & hope, not so much about my drinking days, but about my recovery. I will share with you everything I know A to Z and will do this over a number of blogs. I would also love to hear about your recovery journeys too. I will not be looking at the Hows,Whys & When the addiction happened,as that is in the past & I will not be focusing on all the pyscho bable and medical jargon. If you want that then best look elsewhere.
