01. Because I feel like no one is reading
02. Because it takes up my life
This isn't an over-exaggeration! Blogging takes so long to schedule, write and perfect. When one has a life also it can be hard to fit it all in. I sometimes do wonder, 'What's the point?t' but then I remember I'm addicted to blogging and actually can't stop. I kind of like it.
03. Because it's an overindulged world that could do probably do with dying
Although I do love reading blogs and bloggers etc - part of me really doesn't agree with the industry (if you can call it that). There's a lot of trickery, advertising and un-genuine people out there. Some many of the blogs that we read are out there blogging for business, money and popularity. I'm in this game innocently and I don't like to be categorised in something that has got quite a negative name over the past few years.
04. I want to write things that have substance!
I have all the intention in the world to sit down and write a book. I often find myself excusing it and saying 'I don't have enough time' - at this point I open up blogger and smash out a blog post which could've realistically been the beginning of a chapter. I sometimes think that if I put my blog into a thing of the past that I could finally crack down and write. I have written bits of poetry and started my book. But again, I have an insatiable need to blog....
I thought that I'd made some blogger pals...they've all unfollowed me and moved on since my blogging break. Ok, so I should be offended, sad and hurt but I'm not. The whole idea of a blogger sister-hood is a bit of a LOL situation. It's all about the follower count and not the people. Blogger chats are to gain followers not to make 'friends'. Sorry but it's the truth apart from a handful of exceptions!
Ultimately I can't seem to give up. I keep coming back to blogging because I've grown up doing it. It's sort of as natural to me as washing my face. It feels like part of my routine to blog. But, I won't be doing it forever I suppose...Hopefully this book of mine will get written! But in the meantime - I hope you enjoy my blog posts!
