Blogging Question: What is your favorite thing about blogging?
A while back I was interviewed on Ramblings of a Book Junkie and was asked the same thing. At the time my answer was “Well there are two things in particular that I love about book blogging. 1) All of the great people I’m meeting. 2) How supportive the blogging world is. I feel so much support and I have had people really go out of their way to help me. I am so grateful and can already see that start of so many great friendships forming.” I honestly continue to feel that way but being as I have something to add to my answer, I figured I’d give this question another try.
This is something that I don’t like to advertise but the people that know me, know it as a fact. I am a quitter. I try to stick to my decisions and I try to see them through but when the going gets tough I turn tail and run away. I’ll soon be reaching my two month blog anniversary and I’m realizing how much I am changing.
Having this blog reminds me of being a parent. This here is my baby and I really love running it. It’s a job that is overwhelming at times, it’s stressful and is known to give me headaches but it is rewarding and I am so happy and proud of it. I put so much of myself into it and it’s not always an easy thing to do. Yet, I am constantly motivated and looking forward to interactions from my readers. In truth that is a very big motivator for me.
For once, I find myself truly and simply refusing to give up. When I am stressed out or overwhelmed, I still make sure I am keeping up with my blog schedule. The point is that for once in my life I’m not allowing myself to quit. I love that this blog is helping me become a strong, better and more persevering person.
