What I learned about Blogging?

What’s the most important (or interesting, or unexpected) thing about blogging you know today that you didn’t know a month ago?

What is the most important thing I’ve learned about blogging? I hate it. I hate blogging. I’m not a blogger. I will never be a blogger. And I would rather be writing fiction.

I admire the bloggers who can maintain a healthy blog but honestly it’s not for me. You won’t see me here every day. It’s not “My thing”. I tried it. I had a healthy number of posts. And at the end of that time, I hated it. I’m not sure why. It’s not the routine and it’s not the “having to write”.

Writers if they plan on being successful need to plant their butt in the chair and write every day. Blogging isn’t much difference. You need to plant your butt in the chair and write. But at least to me, it’s a different world and one of which I don’t want to partake.

So why am I blogging? Because it was advised that I try it again. Oh Joy. So here I sit, writing a blog again. Will it be part of my social platform? I don’t know. I need to see where it goes. I’m not even sure how I’ll use it.

We’ll see how it goes.

  1. You Hit the Nail Right on the Head, & it’s not that i am afraid to say it like you did, i’m dead set straight out to the point, when i need to say something that’s ‘Right’.., but it ever seems lately, i am very picky & pointing out the wrongs & Disadvantages in matters, only the one’s that concern our future..
    Having a family of my own, in this time of Economy – recession, we now have to Blog, to somehow build an Audience, see everything’s a Competition today, & i’m just a simple man who see’s everyone equal, so why do we have to be better than others to get the Attention at higher Rank..
    Don’t we need to Support our Families, eg: Quality time, economically, what is the future of Blogging sharing my Deepest moments – Do i write of myself?, i’m a true Man, i write Non Fiction, because i Live in Reality, though believe i should be writing Fiction, as it seems Nobody Cares anyways, i published my book recently, & the publishing company, gave me this Blogging Platform,what’s the deal with that, i paid the company to publish & advertise my Script, they said an average score for passing reviews are 5.5, & for my Book i received 8.2, but it seems like i am busting my Chops to advertise, & wasting my time, losing wealth on this time of need to support my Family, & getting Nowhere – So what are we Blogging For.?
    I apologize for crying on your Com, but you make great point, i thought i was alone..
    I side you on your Comment..

  2. Nope you aren’t alone there are a whole lot of us who don’t like to blog but we do for one reason or another. No one can get away without a social platform. Even if your publisher is one of the Big 5, you must have a platform unless your name is Stephen King or Janet Evanovich or the like. As I said, I’m not sure where this will go because Blogging isn’t my “thing”
