- On Blogging
I don't read any blogs regularly only once in awhile. I do blog. I blog because I like to write and it scares me that someone might read what I write. I started a blog in 2008 and blogged for about 2 years with no success. I had very few readers. That did not bother me. The I stop writing blog posts on that blog in April 2010. Probably because I did not have anything to write about. I published over 600 posts.
Then I tried to start probably 2 or 3 other blogs none of which I stuck with for as long as that first blog. Writing about 30 posts for the 2 or 3 blogs. They were all miserable failures as you can probably guess.
The recently I started publishing on my first blog that I stopped posting on in April 2010. I publish a post a day. I don't think my writing is good but, I am doing it everyday.
When I stated blogging I wanted to have a hugely successful blog. I want to be rich and famous and get on a television show and write my own book. I did not stop and think that I might not have anything interesting to write about. So now as I write about above am ok with no one reading what I write on my blog.
I think there would be a lot of downsides to being successful anyway. I would have to read emails, read comments, get upset about maybe getting negative comments. Thought I might not care about negative comments. In other words I think it would take up to much of my time. And there are lots of other things that I cam be doing besides sitting in front of my computer working on my blog.
