This is a picture of my favorite scone recipe.
Cooking and baking which are favorite pastimes for me are also an activity which sustains life. We need food to live.
Blogging is similar to cooking.
Something about the act of blogging appears to sustain us too.
With blogging, just like cooking a recipe, we can complete a post, but “blogging” itself is not done. We answer comments. Visit other blogs. Plan our next post. Work behind the scenes, and the cycle starts all over.
But with blogging we don’t use a “recipe”, nor do we have a complete set of instructions.
After all, blogging has no rules.
We just blog.
Publishing one post after another.
Often experimenting and learning as we go.
Day in. Day out.
Days turn into months. Months turn into years.
Most of us don’t make enough money from blogging to quit our day job.
And some have blogs which don’t get found.
But for some reason we blog on.
Why is that?
What inspires you to keep blogging?
Have you ever quit and then came back?
Care to share?
P.S. My scone recipe was published in the “Harvest Potluck” recipe book which was created by Patricia of Patricia’s Wisdom; a free ebook containing recipes submitted by bloggers from all over the world. Just click on the “Harvest Potluck” link on her blog. Enjoy!
