Are you grateful for your blog? • Blogging Insights#8
Dr Tanya – in her great blog Salted Caramel – has been running her Blogging Insights series for nearly three months. In this quest she has unearthed a wealth of insights from bloggers, and by keeping this all in-the-public-eye so to speak it can be of tremendous value for bloggers. Not in the least for rookie-bloggers like myself. So far she has fired off 11 salvo’s, or sets if you will, of questions. Some of these are pretty easy to answer. Others require some ‘soul-searching’. Now she has given us, who like myself are pretty new to this form of ‘mental exercise’, the opportunity to catch up with the front-runners.
Q: Are you grateful for your blog?
Q: How do you express your gratitude?
By reading as many posts as possible, liking what I like and leaving comments where I’ve got something to say.
Q: Has blogging added value to your life?
Oh yes…immensely! It has largely filled a void in my life now that I’m ‘retired’ and not working in a demanding and all-consuming business of advertising any longer. Takes my mind of my Parkinson’s Disease. It lets me rant and rave.
A friend of mine said about my blogging jokingly last night: beggars can’t be choosers.
It is quite the opposite for me. I do have the liberty now that I’m no longer working 50+hour weeks to choose among a great many other things. Reading, writing, going for walks, visiting musea etc etc.
