I really enjoy blogging. I like to write, and it's sort of a sounding board for ideas going through my head--a way to organize my thoughts and get them out. But, as any other author will probably attest, it's much more satisfactory to know that your words are being read.
I manage four blogs. One of them is a book club that I started online because I have so much family and many friends that live far away. I admit, I haven't done much with that one lately, but maybe we should get back to it. Another of them is my family blog, and the reason I keep that separate from this blog is for this exact reason that I'm writing about right now--I like to have a place where I can write whatever I think and feel and see. My family blog is our family history and I print that blog up into a book every year. It's more of a journal of what our family is doing. Then I have one where I keep track of all the preschool activities and lessons I do with my children. I doubt anybody reads that one, but if someone happened across it, they might get some ideas of their own and realize that they don't have to pay for their preschool age children to learn. Then I have this one, where I write my thoughts and opinions and basically just whatever I want.
But when it seems like nobody is reading your work, it just seems like pointless effort to come up with ideas to write about or even blog at all for that matter. It would just be nice to have some feedback so I know I'm not the only one reading my blog!
