Almost every night as I am falling asleep I think of all the things I want to write about ... but what I have realized is that I just do not have the time to write! I have been trying to figure out why it is seeming so complicated, I have really enjoyed writing and really the three or four readers that I have probably are not looking for real quality work (considering writing is NOT my specialty). So why the heck am I doing this?
I would like to say that it is because if I had enough people reading then I could have advertisements and have some extra money ... but I would first need to figure out all the ad thingys (technical term) and WOW that just seems like more time, which I do not have. Then I would have to be more consistent about writing and actually write something that is interesting enough that someone wants to read it! So this is NOT the reason I keep attempting to blog!
Then the big question, how do you get people to read your blog? I would think that the biggest draw would be really interesting stories, although I have been amazed at some of the blogs that I have visited that are NOT very interesting and have lots of comments! I guess everyone has a different opinion about what is interesting!
I also think that it is a large social network, you visit other blogs and comment and then they visit you and comment ... then maybe you are added to a favorites list somewhere out there ... then maybe mentioned in someone else's story ... I would have to say that this defies almost all the reasons that I love my computer so much, I have to be social!
Friendships or any relationship is a lot of work. Whether it is be a relationship with your spouse, children, neighbor or a group of strangers that you are sharing with ... there is a social aspect that I am not good at! And this is what I believe is stopping me from writing because it has become more about a social interaction then just jotting down a story that I think is fun, informative, etc... I made this realization right now as I was writing this! My solution: I am going to try to forget about the social 'stuff' and just write a little more! So be prepared for some entries that may seem random, and just not very exciting but right now this has to be about me and not any social group! Time is still an issue, with five children sometimes there just is not enough time in a day! So thanks for taking a little time from your day to visit my blog!
