Why do I blog?

You may (Or may not.) have noticed that things have got a wee bit quiet here. Blog posts have become a less frequent (Understatement!) and I just keep forgetting to post updates on the films I’ve been watching for my 100 movies challenge for the year.

Been trying to think of a way to kickstart my blogging again. The number of times I’ve come here and stared at an empty Add New Post Page is pretty hilarious.

For a while I’ve been toying with attempting to keep up with blogging every day using The Daily Post. But realised, it’s not about how much I blog but what I blog. It’d be pointless to blog on some of the prompts they give for the sake of it.

One recent Daily Prompt did make me go ‘hmmm’ – Why do you blog?

Made me go hmmm because now is probably a good time to remind myself why I blog and why I have been for so many years and maybe, just maybe, that’ll be enough to get me back into some sort of routine with blogging.

So, why do I blog?

I like the idea of being able to share. Share little bits of what’s going on in the world around me, what I’m watching and sharing things you guys out there might like. Also, I’ve been journal-ling/blogging online for so many years now. For brief moments I stopped or paused. But I always came back to it.

It’s great when people comment and get engaged in what I blog about here, but to be honest, I’m not too fussed with hits and comment counts. I used to be. I used to be a stats whore. But blogging is just another sort of creative-ish release for me. I’m not an aspiring writer, in fact I don’t think I can write for shit! But blogging’s something I enjoy and stuffing life with doing things I enjoy can only be a good thing. Right?
