Blogging

Why do you Blog?

Who do you blog for?

Why do you blog? 

Did you have specific reasons for why you started or was it just because you wanted to write?
Is your blog about your baby or pregnancy? Is it about you and your life?
Or do you blog about things you love? Hobbies, interests, work?

Did you find it easy to start or was it a long drawn thought out process? And how about your actual posts, do you put lots of time and effort into them, rewriting until you think it’s just right? Or do you write what is on the top of your head and hit publish?

Blogging is such vague and vast area it pretty much can be whatever you want it to be to you. You can write anything you want, publish writing, pictures, videos. Say as much or as little as you want. There is really so much you can do with your little piece of the world wide web.

My blog is a piece of me. It’s about me and my life. It is how I find and see things from my perspective. I may not be the most educated, serious, intellectual blogger. I don’t have vast amounts of wisdom to impart to you all, but still it is me and who I am. 

We are all interesting in our own way. All of us unique in who we are, how we live our lives and how we choose to blog. This enables to learn new things from others and embrace others just from typing a few words onto a screen because at the end of that that is what we all have in common.

I have read so many posts by experienced bloggers with so many handy tips on how to make your blog successful, what to do and what not to do. To try to incorporate many different things to make your blog successful. Some are really invaluble others not so much.

But who will it make it successful to? To other bloggers? To your friends and family? To the companies who will want to use use your blog to expand their market? Or to you?
It took me over 6 months of thinking about starting a blog before I actually started it. I have moved my blog from WordPress to Blogger and then 3 weeks into my Blogger home I changed the name. I am now finally happy and comfortable with my blog and more importantly I am proud of it. So to me it is a successful blog because I come to it every day I write and I publish and after months of doing nothing, now I am actually doing what I wanted to do.

Now I may not have many readers or page views a day but you can get all too hung up on that stuff, blog because you want to not because of any other reason. Write what you want to write regardless of who or how many read it, write in a way that comes naturally to you because that is how your blog will find its voice be it sooner or later.

If you come across my little blog and this post I wish you best of luck with your blog and hope you get everything out of it you wanted to (and I don’t just mean freebies to review 😉 )
Spread the love

  1. When I started my blog I had a lot of expectations from it. I was all set to travel and hence the name Drifting Traveller. But I soon realized that I eat and cook more than I travel, even when I am travelling. Only a travel blog would become a seasonal blog because I onlyblog about personal experiences, so I am now a food and travel blogger. 🙂
