Blogging is like partaking in an individual sport.
What attracts one person to blogging often differs from that which attracts the next.
Not only are we attracted to blogging for different reasons, we also differ in what we blog about (our niche).
When I started blogging, I was not interested in having a blog about blogging. Instead, I saw myself blogging about that which I had learned over the years; sharing hints and tips and general life observations.
With my Observation Mountain blog, I did that, however after writing close to 200 posts, I began to run out of things to share.
In the meantime I was using this blog to document my blogging journey, as well as for sharing what I observed about blogging. Since I normally question things in life, and wonder if there’s a better way to accomplish “xyz”, this blog slowly grew into what it is today – my observations about blogging (lessons), followed by questions (assignments).
By reading your comments (answers to the questions), not only do I gain a different perspective to all aspects of blogging, but for those who read the comments, they do too.
When I reflect back on those first months of blogging, I never thought I would enjoy blogging about blogging. So, in a sense, it was this topic which picked me, instead of the other way around.
