Why I Keep On Blogging

Why I Keep On Blogging

I like to write about stuff. I write about living, life, gaming, music, photography, online life, parenting, travel, food, and anything else I feel like talking about. This of course makes it hard to fit my blog in a neat category or blog roll. Whatever. It’s my blog and this is how I roll. I used to try to split all my topics up into different places, but I’m stopping that crap. It’s all here. I add category tags, if you come here reading, you can click them.  I’m not just one topic, I’m afraid.
I’ve had a few blogs over the years. When I was younger and before the internet, I kept a diary. I changed from Blogger to WordPress when I decided to consolidate my WoW stuff with my other stuff. Then I tinkered with Tumblr. Then I lost all my files on wordpress – it’s all there in the notes. But most of my old blogs are available – just look here if you are REALLY interested.

I don’t have that many blog followers. Maybe I ramble. Maybe I’m boring. Or maybe I’m just too eclectic or inconsistent for people to follow regularly. Or maybe I don’t follow unwritten community rules. I don’t know. I don’t really mind, although I’m thrilled when people comment.  I really blog for me. Writing has always been a way for me to articulate to myself how I feel about things and how I understand my world (or not as the case may be). Sometimes I need to organize my thoughts to understand my feelings. Sometimes it’s for documenting what’s important in my life. Sometimes it’s to show off. Sometimes it’s a real desire to share something I’ve learned or loved. And I love reading my blogs years later on. So I’ll keep writing and fiddling with layouts and organization.

  1. Hey there 🙂

    What a nice blog you have here. I look forward to follow you 🙂 I hear you on just having everything in one place, instead of splitting things up, people can easily filter through stuff here anyway.

    Nice to meet you, Strumpet 🙂

    One of the fun things about blogging, for me, is that all day long I’ll be rolling topics in my head about what to write. It keeps me entertained!

    1. Ha! I doubt ‘good’ is the first thing that comes to mind when anyone stumbles across my diaries! But, yes, it’s good to plan posts during the day too 🙂
