So I will write about the challenges of blogging. I'm not really that new to blogging, just newer to blogging consistantly. A couple things that make blogging hard for me are of course, time. Not like just time management but just minutes in a day to have a thought to myself. I like a variety of things so I'm easily distractable. Just about any bright and shiny thing will make me lose my train of thought.
Another challenge for me is consistancy. Being able to put something out there with some kind of regular frequency. I recently blogged about my adventures aboard the USNS Comfort. That was totally eye opening because I seriously tried for 28 days to get something on there everyday. After that experiance I'm pretty sure I either have time to blog my life or to live my life, but rarely both.
My blog began as a medium to showcase portrait photography that I was doing. A place that families could share with their distant family members to go check out their pictures. Unfortunately, I created the name during one of my "cute" phases and no one can remember where to find me.
I'm also challenged by coordinating all of the different links like twitter and facebook and well I don't even choose to do either of those so my blog is a little antiquated. I'm hoping to install "buttons" soon so people can just follow what they are interested in.
And speaking of interest, why would someone choose to read my daily rants? What is appropriate to share? And what would I rather people that plan to stalk me not know?
And of course, writing like any creative process is personal. It's a labor of love and thought and vision. It's like giving birth. It's hard to hear..."You have an ugly child." But it's deafening when you hear nothing at all and nobody comments. Creative people like to hear what you think, they like to know that you are touched in someway. They like to know that you will return. Please don't tell me my "baby" is ugly and have a good day. Check out other prompts at http://www.mamakatslosinit.com/
