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.
Why do I blog?
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?
