Have you had a chance to read Darren Rowse’s (Problogger) recent post? It’s titled: What Thomas Edison Can Teach You About Blogging. In it, he writes,
Most blogs are abandoned after a month or two…. the average time that it takes a blog to rise to the top of the pile is around 3 years (it’s now longer).
When I started blogging, I didn’t know where it would take me. I didn’t even know if I would like blogging.
But I do, and I continue to post on a regular basis.
Have I ever thought of quitting? No. I enjoy it too much.
Call me naive, but I haven’t really thought about where my blogs will be another year from now, or where I’ll be when I celebrate three years of blogging.
Some say we should have a plan, a goal.
But, blogging is considered a hobby. I don’t set goals for my other hobbies.
For once in my life, I have found a hobby I truly enjoy; a hobby I haven’t become bored with.
Unless I face unforeseen circumstances, I’m not quitting.
What about you?
Do you see a future for yourself in blogging?
Have you thought where you might be when you celebrate year three?
Have you ever thought of quitting?
