I really hate being one of those people who blog about blogging. But I miss the blogging groove that I had – knowing what to write about and having the words flow. I though about this a lot in the past week and I feel the need to work through the thoughts. Make a couple of decisions and or hopefully rekindle my passion for writing!
Why did I start blogging?
A friend introduced me to a couple of the blogs she followed. I read, I laughed and I cried. And then I thought to myself – if they can do it, so can I! I started my very first blog in November 2007. I loved documenting my life, keeping little memories of what Logan and I did alive in my writing. Sharing my hopes and my fears.
Why did I stop blogging?
I started caring what people though of my writing. I started caring who reads it and how and if I would offend someone by something I say. I started rereading my posts 3/4 times and trying to see how something could be misinterpreted. Then I started moving my blog around – renaming it again and again. To put it simply – I started complicating things.
Do you think the name of a blog influences how comfortable you are in your writing space?
What are the things you love about blogging? What do you dislike? Do you have a blogging schedule? How do you fit blogging into a busy work-kids-husband kind of life?
What is the most bizarre comment you have ever received?
If you have a personal blog, would you consider starting a blog for your business/ employer?
