I realised that yes it has been 10 days since I last ‘posted’.
I don’t have a fan club of avid followers like some of my fellow Blog Stars, nor several hundred that hit the ‘like’ button, and I wonder at times why did I start blogging?
Did I start because I wanted the attention for my literary snippets? Or did I simply want the ‘like’ button hit?
I must admit when I received the first notification that someone had actually read my post I got the tingles. What? You mean someone actually sat at their computer/IPad/Laptop and read something that I had written? Someone whom I had not set eyes upon, had actually done this?
Of course after that, the posts came thick and fast -there must be others out there that would enjoy what I do (almost hyperventilating).
I ask myself though do mine have any significance? Should I have beautiful photos attached? Should it be written about quests that I have accomplished or those that are yet to be? What constitutes a worthwhile blog?
I haven’t ‘posted’ for 10 days because I’m in the throes of writing a novel, and it’s a juggling act with coming home tired from working every day, to either ‘veg’ out, write a post, do my on line course, or continue my novel. Most nights I’m to tired to do anything. Sadly that leaves the week-end, but then there is OMG social activities with friends and family or mundane activities such as housework that gets in the way!
But never fear people who have previously ‘liked’ me before, I hope in the not too distant future you shall be able to hit that ‘like’ button once more ….when I find the energy.

I too sometimes wonder ‘why’ I blog! I like to use my blog to display my writing, but I’m nowhere near funny or interesting, so I don’t post about things in my life.
All I can say is, it’s awesome that you are dedicating yourself to your novel. Because after all, writing a novel is far better an act than writing a blog about writing a novel. Right? 🙂
I hope you got my replies, if not thank you again for your kind words and for visiting my blogs and liking them. It is so kind whenever anyone takes the time to do this. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t funny – I read what you have written and I love your style of writing.
You remind me of how I write (when I write fiction – which is the Novel I am trying to get going).
I do agree that writing a novel is far better an act -but also alot harder 🙂 Keep up your good work I am following your progress.
