I ran across a couple quick posts that shed some light on why people such as myself maintain blogs. I have purposely not evaluated the cost / benefit of maintaining this blog, or how I would ever try to monetize this (though feel free to support my advertisers!).
Sarah Peck had a post worth noting – that its not about the number of viewers -in fact perhaps in my case its best that readership stays small.
And James Clear also had an interesting post about establishing a writing schedule, and not waiting for inspiration. I think its a great point – too often I wait for inspiration – whereas I should just hunker down and not be afraid to create junk if I need to.
Writing for me is an ongoing learning process. This blog has helped me frame thoughts and think about things differently. And thanks to the small readership, I have the luxury of posting whatever quality of content I have in a given week. No editors or deadlines. What else could a writer hope for?
