With the end of June fast approaching, I am drawn to consider my commitment (or lack of commitment) to blogging.
- My best day was when I had 63 people view my posts
- My worst two days were when I had zero views
- I have written 116 posts in 176 days – that means I missed 40 days of blogging
- I received 51 comments from fellow bloggers – all of them were much appreciated
We are nearly half way through 2011 and I am confronted with WHY am I doing this? To start with I wrote just so that I could write. It didn’t worry me if no-one read it. I took the opportunity to write-up many of my adventures around Australia or just took the opportunity to express some of my thoughts and beliefs.
The next phase was a “getting to know you” other WordPress bloggers out there. There are so many interesting people with some great writing and storytelling skills. It feels like being part of the so-called “global village”. I find it interesting when I consider the differences in our countries and even in our use of the English language – spelling especially. I don’t do “‘Z’s”!
Lately I am distracted with irregular working hours/days and seem to have lost the flow of writing . I need to think about what the next phase of my writing will be.
One thing I have noticed is that I have not tried to write anything outside of my blog. I had ideas about writing stories and sending them to magazines and even putting together reading books for kids. I have just upgraded my computer and software to enable me to lift my game a bit!
I still love to read other people’s blogs!
cheers for now
