I love blogging.
I love the discipline of writing ideas in a limited space, I love the feedback on those ideas, I love seeing other people’s work (images and writing), I love seeing the creative effort that goes into other blogs, I love learning new things from people online–like a giant coffee morning (with or without the hot drink), and I love the global networking.
But sometimes I am struck with the dark little mood: what’s the point to all this? Why on earth do people actually bother reading these things? Probably the same reasons as me.
Can I ask you? No, I am not asking why you read my blog. And I am not asking why you choose to blog.
I am curious why you read blogs, generally. What makes you click on a title? What makes you stay online five more minutes for a blog post? What makes you choose to follow a blog?
- Is it for information and tips on a subject?
- Do you read for sheer entertainment? Is this your coffee break fun?
- Do you enjoy making online friends through blogs?
- Is it to develop your writing (or other craft) by reading other people’s styles?
- Anything else?
I would love to know–long answers, short answers, really honest anonymous answers, whatever–I’d love to know!
