Given Up On Your Blog Yet?

Every­one who has writ­ten a blog will have con­sid­ered giv­ing up at some point in time. Some­one once said to me “Nobody reads my blog — what does it mat­ter?” Indeed that is a key ques­tion, it is easy to start a blog, it is a mat­ter of writ­ing down a few words and click­ing on the “Pub­lish” but­ton, doing that well is anoth­er mat­ter — it takes time and effort. Mike Senczyszak rais­es a valid ques­tion here and it is one rea­son why his view needs re-blog­ging, the truth is pub­lish­ing is the easy part, get­ting noticed takes the major­i­ty of the effort and that is an essen­tial part of the process. Please take a look at what Mike has to say on giv­ing up on your blog, truth is there are many blog posts cre­at­ed each sec­ond of the day, take a lit­tle time to read this one.

Mike ques­tions…

Why do I blog?

Excel­lent question.

Sta­tis­tics sug­gest a new Blog is cre­at­ed every half a sec­ond. Do the math and that works out to 7,200 per hour, 172,800 per day, 63 mil­lion per year.  Fac­tor in an almost expo­nen­tial accel­er­a­tion rate over the past three years, and you begin to get the pic­ture.  Astound­ing.  We’re now liv­ing in a world where more peo­ple own a mobile device than a tooth­brush.  Wow.  Not sure when it hap­pened, pos­si­bly when we slept, but the ‘winds of change’ have evolved into a cyclone.  Noth­ing short of an EMP blast and com­plete col­lapse of the elec­tri­cal grid can slow the progress.  That or a zom­bie apoc­a­lypse.

Which brings me to the ques­tion.  Why do I do it?
