I’ve been thinking a lot recently about why I blog. I was reminded by WordPress a couple of days ago that it is four years since I set this up, although it took me a further five months before I got around to doing much about it. I’ve always been a slow starter! I was very clear what I was doing when I began, but over time that has become less clear to me. I have considered whether I should just accept that my time has been and gone – recent stats would suggest this – but something nags at me not to give it up. There are several reasons for that, and I’m putting together a piece which will help me understand my motivation, and which I will share with you when I’m sufficiently clear, assuming that I ever am, of course.
In the meantime, I thought I’d share again a post I wrote last November which addresses this theme. Many of my current regular readers weren’t following my blog then and may not have seen this before. I also think that it is one of my better thought-out pieces and, as such, deserves a second airing while I buy myself some time to think things through. I hope you enjoy it and, as they say, watch this space 🙂
As you may have begun to suspect, I have committed myself to participate in the annual marathon that is National Blog Posting Month, or #NaBloPoMo as it as known. This requires bloggers to post something every day during November. Many of the blogs I follow do that, and in some cases more than once each day, but I don’t usually. Why? because I simply don’t have enough to say that is even of interest to me, let alone inflicting it on you! So, for me, this is a real challenge. I have a long list of draft ideas for posts that I have made in the three years that I’ve been doing this, many of which may never see the light of day, but it is a useful fallback for when I have an occasional fit of insanity and commit myself to something like this. I’ll be sharing some of them with…
