March 30th: Have you ever thought of quitting blogging? What made you reconsider the idea?
I would have to say, not really. I enjoy blogging. I love reading and sharing my thoughts with others. I like writing reviews. I love my blog and the look and feel and layout.
Back when blogs were a much bigger deal than they are now (7+ years ago), and my kids were much younger, blogging was a chore many times. I worried about followers and numbers. I worried about branding – should I have a name that reflects my reading? Blogging was work, and so I didn’t always love it. Back then I didn’t really think about quitting, but I had to come to terms with what my blog was, what it could be, and how much work I wanted to put into it. It took a couple years, but eventually I became happy with where I was and what my blog represents.
