- Why did we decide to blog? Reason: to write more. It was not to get followers, not to get stuck in a rut, and not to feel obligated to comment on 100's of blogs. It was a relief to discuss this and to realize we don't have to run ourselves ragged. We just need to re-focus and write!
- How do we feel about blog awards? Well, some have been meaningful, but others are like chain letters (ex. to get this award write 50 things about yourself and then give the award to 50 other people...OK, I exaggerate a little bit.). Awards in the traditional sense are very special. Not everyone gets one. I realize that by writing this I will probably never get another award, but that is OK too. Awards should be earned (like my A to Z one)!
- How do we manage time? Well, that is a tricky one. We want to work on our manuscripts, have family time, blog, and visit other blogs. Whew! We know we will have to prioritize and maybe cut back on some blogging/visiting.
- Help, we feel trapped by our blogs! Most blogging experts tell you to narrow down your blog to one topic. I chose "writing exercises" and Pam chose "Christian Writing". We both are feeling too constrained by our topics. Now Brianna, on the other hand, felt hers was too broad "running, motherhood, writing, blogging", but I think she's more on the money. Anyway, in the end, we decided we will write about what we want to write about. They are our blogs! Hooah!
The three of us really like blogging. It does motivate us to write. We also like getting together to talk about blogging. So, please don't think we're complaining. We just wanted to discuss some observations and try to find our blogging groove.
