Have you ever noticed when you’re doing something you love, time flies? In one sense, it’s almost like time stands still. This analogy is often tied to living your passion.
Blogging is that way for me. When I’m engrossed in blogging activities, time speeds by. On days when I think I’ll blog for an hour, before I know it, three or four hours have passed.
Late at night when the house is quiet, and I’m commenting or reading blog posts, my normal bedtime gets overlooked. The hour between midnight and one vanishes, and before I know it, it’s pushing 2 a.m. Morning comes too early.
On days when I’m working behind the scenes of my blog, learning how to do coding, adding or deleting plugins, and/or working on what will eventually become my new theme, time flies. Sometimes I get carried away and my paying job gets put on hold.
When I started blogging I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. I had no idea it would become another passion. Another favorite pastime.
I’m hesitant to call blogging a time suck as I believe it has the possibilities of leading to greater things in life. A business adventure. A stepping stone to bigger and better things. A great way to gain greater name recognition. A form of therapy. A social networking tool.
What do you think?
Do you think blogging is just another time consuming hobby or do you see the possibilities of where it can lead?
Are you like me? When you blog, does time stand still?
How has the time you’ve invested in blogging helped you?
Feel free to share. I’d love to hear how blogging has affected your life.
