Sooooo...I'm thinking, do I or don't I? I began to carefully consider all the reasons I do blog and all those reasons that keep me from being consistent and came to a very gratifying conclusion.
As selfish as this sounds - I do it for myself!
I love to sew! It gives me so much joy when I sew but I find it hard to allocate time for sewing when there are other things to be done (like housework and such) without letting it take over my life and become my sole purpose, leading me to neglect my home duties. I like that there's a record of what I've made even if that doesn't amount to very much; after all that's why I started this blog - to keep record. I love that I can see where my journey has taken me, how I've grown as a sewist and how my likes and dislikes have changed over time. I like that I might be encouraging others to start sewing and making things for themselves. But you know what the absolute best thing about blogging is - it's the camaraderie of the blogging community. The feeling of belonging and encouragement of like-minded people; people I've never met but somehow feel I've known forever.
In a nutshell; that's the reason I blog. That's the reason I will continue to blog even if it is spasmodic. (Note to self...must try to organize a routine/time line for blogging, i.e. set days to post, it might help. Making something might help too!)
Why do you blog? Do you ever feel that it's too hard and not worth the effort?
