I Love Blogging

I have thought about abandoning this blog multiple times. I have various reasons that I think are valid as to why I should stop blogging. But every time I try to stop I keep coming back. I just can’t seem to stop blogging. I know I am not getting anything out of doing this (this blog is not earning any income nor is requesting for any donation from readers for maintenance). My efforts are not compensated. I keep buying clothes & makeup and I just bought a nice camera last year so I can keep doing this. I am not getting anything out of this so what’s in it for me to still be doing this? Answer is: nothing tangible but a lot of intangible.

My love for blogging is more than just the compensation a blogger can get out of doing this. I know I have said multiple times in various articles that I started this blog for all the wrong reasons. But later on I realized that I do love blogging and this is something that I would want to keep doing for many years to come. I may not be compensated for all my efforts and investments but this is something that I enjoy doing during my pastime. I love to share pictures with people on the internet and I always like to read the reactions of people on the articles I publish. I also like the fact that I have a creative outlet. I don’t know, sometimes I feel like my right brain just wants to dominate my entire body and soul and writing has been the best form of creative outlet for me.

You will probably see this blog on the World Wide Web for many, many years and I can’t see myself stopping anytime soon. I love blogging and this is a hobby I enjoy a lot. The whole process from shooting photos, to planning outfits and articles, to publishing is something that I enjoy. I am still not going to publish every day because I want to produce quality articles for you to read. I don’t want to publish for the sake of publishing with very minimal content and mediocre quality. I will do my best though to continue with the scheduled posts (though I know this week will be a day delayed). And I hope you continue to support this blog.

  22. Thank you! I rarely wear jeans and I just wanted something different that day.

  23. Agree. But others leave for good and others really continue on. Blogging takes up a lot of time - from planning outfits, to shooting, editing, writing, posting and responding to comments. If you have a 9 to 5 job it can be quite difficult to keep it up. But if you really love what you do, you'll be willing to give up rest and sleep to continue what you are doing. I love blogging so sometimes even when I am tired I continue on. But there are times when you just have to rest though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes! Love what you do and you never have to work a single day in your life.

  25. Thank you! Too bad the giveaway is not open to my part of the world. :(

  26. You're welcome.

  27. Thanks! I received a lot of compliments for this top.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes, sometimes you just want to take a rest and just stay away from technology and social media for a while but something compels you to come back. You just love blogging too much that you can't just leave it like that. You come back loving it even more!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Agree! One of the reason why I always come back is because I've invested a huge part of me in this online space. I feel like it knows me more than I know myself!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ditto! It is life as it contains what happens in my life.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you! I hope you continue reading. Readers are another reason why I can't just leave blogging. I appreciate people reacting and commenting to things I share.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you! Blogging is life!

    ReplyDelete
  33. True! Sometimes life just happens and everything seems out of control. You just want to stay away from technology and social media to take a rest. But then you eventually come back and love blogging even more!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow! Good on you! I want to do this full time too but I have needs that blogging won't be able to support so I need my 8 to 4 job (which I also do love and enjoy).

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank you! Yes, when you remember how much fun you have blogging you start itching planning blog posts!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you! I wore this to work so I have to make it look not too casual.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes, I will take breaks from time to time but I will definitely always come back. I love blogging too much!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you for the kind words. I will not abandon blogging because I love it a lot. I will take breaks from time to time because I also need to refuel my creative mind but will always definitely come back.

  39. Thank you! It is from a tree called fire tree. It is one of our versions of cherry blossoms (we also have bougainvillea). They look really beautiful during summer.

  40. I'm completely of the same mindset, Jenn. I started my blog for purely selfish reasons, to air my thoughts on a neutral platform, and I really do hope to continue doing that for as long as I have things to say :) and I sincerely believe that those of us who write without expecting returns, are those who will endure far longer than those in it hoping to attain fame and/or fortune xoxo
