Prompts: Have your reasons for blogging changed since you started? If so, what changes have you noticed? Have you ever taken a break from blogging, or thought about it? Have you ever thought about quitting blogging entirely? What stops you? What gives you motivation to keep blogging? (Kristin @ Lukten Av Trykksverte)
This feels like such a timely question because I will be celebrating two years of blogging at the end of the month. When I started out blogging, it was about being able to express my views on books and connecting with the online book community since I had few friends who read. It was also an opportunity to speak about the importance of representation. My reasons haven’t changed but how consistent I’ve have been has been up and down.
I have had breaks from blogging. It’s usually sporadic, dependent on the amount of work I have and the slump cycle. More work means a lower likelihood of posting. Slumps will reduce how often I post. I’ve had reading and blogging slumps throughout my time as a blogger. These breaks allow me time to relax and refresh. As soon as they’re over, I try posting again, because I enjoy blogging. Quitting it entirely has not yet crossed my mind.
