I renewed the domain subscription for Beautiful Railway Bridge today. I’d been putting if off till the last minute – the lights would have gone out tomorrow – for several reasons. One is irritation at being being bombarded with reminders by WordPress when I knew the deadline and didn’t want to think about it until absolutely necessary. And part of the reason for not wanting to think about it was a reluctance to question whether writing a blog is worth the effort.
Yes, I get a great deal of pleasure from making a good blog post. But there’s always the fight with the worst broadband service in Britain, the faff of putting in all the links, and the maintenance involved in making over a thousand posts accessible and easy to find. And most of all there’s the self-imposed guilt when I don’t post on a daily basis.
The maintenance thingy is a shambles. And the images are scattered between this and an unused blog, when I really want them all in one place. It will take literally years to get everything sorted out, but that’s me in perfectionist mode – it might be better to ignore the trait as much as possible. Knowing where everything is probably matters only to me.
Which is a roundabout way of saying I’m still here and attempting once more to post every day. Ish.
Please keep posting! Happy holidays,
Yeah, I’m a bit iffy about blogging as well. I agonise too much about it. Don’t think you have to post every day – unless it’s income-producing, of course. I post now and then into the ether and it’s enough. But don’t go away altogether! We’re still here, reading you. I hope 2014 is a good, nay, great, year for you!
I’m with Catherine – keep posting as and when you can unless you need it to make money, and try not to beat yourself up if you can’t do it as often as you would like in your ideal blogosphere. Whenever you post, I enjoy reading it.
PS Love the dino pic.
