Maybe it’s my imagination or I’m projecting my own malaise, but a touch of blogging fatigue seems to have set in quilt blogging circles. Posts become less frequent and more distracted and then fade out, sometimes completely. Over at the Blog Herald, Jason Kaneshiro picks up on Kent Newsomes’s succinct outline of the five stages of blogging (from creation to abandonment) and then highlights what keeps him keeping on blogging:
- Comments left by readers;
- Responding to what I read on other blogs via my own;
- Setting internal goals that don’t rely on external validation;
- Writing series of posts;
- Giving back;
- Striving to be a decent blogosphere citizen;and
- Honest blogging.
It is often remarked that “everyone can blog but blogging is not for everyone”. What keeps you going?
