I don’t know about you but sometimes this blogging gig can be a chore.
Long lonely hours of writing and editing, coming up with the inspiration for the headlines and sitting down to do the work while your friends are out partying. Just getting started is a challenge. What do you want to blog about? Will it work? How do I set up this WordPress technology thing.
Writers block lurks every day. It doesn’t just afflict the beginner but the best. These are some of the challenges that confront us all.
So why should you start and why persist?
Why you should start
When starting, the reasons why are sometimes nothing more than a curiosity driven by a passion for the topic. Sometimes it is the intersection and synergy of multiple motivations. Maybe leave a legacy and learn along the way.
Here are some of the reasons for blogging that I hadn’t really considered when I published for the first time.
