For this week’s Showcase Sunday, I would like to introduce Joshua Schueler from Rollingblogger. There are several unique items to cover regarding his blog, but I will choose just a few. First of all, his blog title names are very witty. When I see each post pop up, it pulls me in to read just what each blog is about. Another thing to mention is his strong faith is evident in his posts. Both inspirational and uplifting, his messages to others are full of compassion and real life experiences. Be sure to check him out, but before you do, learn a little more about him from his interview below!
What made you get into blogging?
I have always had a passion for writing. I have wanted to write a book for a number of years, but it just never seems to come together. With a blog, I can satisfy my writing and get instant gratification.
What genre do you want to write your book about and what is holding you back?
I want to write an inspirational novel about overcoming obstacles. I had a working title for it once, but after much criticism, I took it off the stove. My book is not even on a burner or in the kitchen anymore.
Have you ever had any formal training or education in your blog subject?
My blog subject is people and inspiration. I don’t think there really can be formal training in either of those. I just live life and write about it.
What was your greatest failure and how did you learn from it?
I would say I have many great failures. The two I would actually mention is my divorce and failing out of school. Both involve relationships. My divorce was because I was young and we were just incompatible as anything more than friends.
With being a failure at school, I learned the hard way not everyone has your best interests at heart. They may seem like nice people, but eventually, they can lead you down the wrong path if you are not careful.
Who has influenced you the most with your blog?
I don’t think there is one specific person who has influenced my blog. Maybe, from a human standpoint, my editor. She always has good advice on what to leave, what to take away, what to change and what to stay.
Otherwise, if you read through my blog you will see God influences me a lot.
How much time do you spend blogging in any given week? On any given week, I will spend between 20 and 30 hours either writing or following other bloggers and getting involved in their lives. That’s why we are here is to relate to one another.
Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
I wish it was a profession. I haven’t figured out how to monetize my blogging yet. I hope to one day, but for now, it’s a hobby.
What is your passion?
People are my passion.
What is the best way you have found to obtain a deeper connection with people?
One word. Listen.
What is your ultimate goal in life?
The ultimate goal for me is to have all people know Jesus Christ as lord and savior.
What legacy would you like to leave behind?
I want to leave a legacy of love and dedication to my crafts. Writing and Djaying are my crafts.
What piece of advice do you have for new bloggers?
The advice I would have is to play around and have fun. Try new styles. Make your entire blog a smorgasbord of tales. It can be funny, whimsical, inspirational, serious, comical, sad, thought provoking. Anything you want. Write for the day. Write EVERY DAY!!
Is there anything you want the readers to know about your blog we haven’t covered?
It is full of so many rabbit holes and inspiration, humor and humility, laughter and love. The only way to experience my blog is to dive in and read as much of it as you can. I have been a blogger for over 3 years now so there is a lot in there.
Don’t just take my word for it, please visit his blog and let him know that you saw him here on “Sunday Showcase.”
