Yesterday, I asked a question on here. Did I really want more followers for my blog? I didn’t really expect to get any response… maybe the odd like. Quite a few of you took the time to stop by and like/ comment and for that I say thanks. I will get around to responding and dropping by your blog.
Tonight, I ask another question… just why do we all blog?
More and more of us seem to be taking time out from blogging… to :
- Sleep more
- Clean the house
- Actually talk to our partners
- Make friends with our friends
- Write – something other than our blogs
But, we are incapable of doing it. We announce that we are going on vacation and take the damn laptop with us and blog throughout the break.
We tell ourselves that we won’t blog that day and start to read the reader. Inspiration fires up and before we know it we’re on our blog – posting. Er… rather like me, right now.
I have loads of other things that need my attention and so I’m on here.
We put our blogs on diets, as well as ourselves. We devise ways to follow thousands of blogs and not burn ourselves out. Then we don’t follow our words of wisdom and burn ourselves out.
And for what? Tell me again why we all blog?
Could it have something to do with it being amazing, addictive, inspiring and a great way to fill your time: even though you don’t actually have that time, do you? Could it be that it’s like being part of a big family… a bit like the one that you’ve left to their own devices downstairs?
Isn’t there something else we could all be doing instead? What you mean like slouching in front of the telly? Watching a film? Doing the ironing?
Hey, we’re perfecting our art. Leave us alone!
So, I’m now going to do what I came on here to originally do.
I’m not stressed out really. I could just use some more hours in the day and to suddenly acquire an organisation gene, that I seem to have missed out on at birth. .
How about you?
- Could you use some extra hours in the day?
- Do you know why you blog?
- Are you addicted?
- Do you take your laptop on vacation with you, to blog?
- Have you ever taken a blog break, only to promptly break that blog break?
That’s me all questioned out now.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by here and have a great Monday night.
Until the next time.
