This week’s question of the week…
What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing about blogging is having an outlet. Don’t get me wrong… I’m no great writer and I don’t feel a compulsion to express myself “creatively”. I just enjoy cataloguing products I encounter (like a nerdy list-maker really), chatting to like-minded people and chewing the cud on a subject that doesn’t interest anyone I know in my day-to-day life.
I’ve met some really good eggs, had some great experiences that I wouldn’t have been fortunate enough to enjoy otherwise and I can look back through my archives with a sense of achievement that I’ve managed to write so much about such a shallow, frivolous subject instead of doing proper work instead.
My least favourite thing about blogging is having an amazing hobby that doesn’t pay the bills. If I could, I’d spend 3x the time on site but my husband would divorce me first. I already have major guilts about how much time I dedicate to it… finding work/life/blog balance is always an issue for me. I wish I could throw myself into it completely.
