Beyond Blogging

Beyond Blogging

Maybe people feel surprised every time I say I don’t have time to blog (which is true) because I am , most of the time busy.

I guess when people see a blog post, they think that I can do it because I have all the time in the world. No. I don’t. I just squeeze in bloggging in my schedules.

It takes me days or weeks to finally finish a post. Like this post, which started Oct 23rd. Writing my thoughts can be easy, but having the time to organize them, edit and add photos, complete the necessary tags, categories and other social media stuff demands some sitting hours, which I have the least. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, beyond blogging is the desire to inform, to help, to express, to motivate, to inspire, to reflect, and to release some ideas. _)

So, why blog? Why write amidst all these? Well, believe it or not. No matter how tiring a day is, I get energized when I finally sit down and write my thoughts or any post I’m trying to finish.

I feel accomplished. I feel happy and excited especially when it’s a post about a helpful information that could help others like 21 Ideas on How to Earn Extra Incomeย orย informing people about the Certificate of Master English Courses offered in our area.

There were those sleepless nights that brought out some reflections like Love Keeps No Record of Mistakesย and Don’t Let What We Feel Dictate How We Will Act.

So, beyond blogging is the desire to inform, to help, to express, to motivate, to inspire, to reflect, and to release some ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I do the same. Sometimes it takes me months to finish a short story. What hurts the most is a seeing a story I was writing unfinished for almost half a year.
    But I think you can’t rush something like writing. There is a saying that I like reminding myself of from time to time and that is quantity does’t equal quality.

  2. I am of the same mind, sister! It really takes a midful effort to keep writing, even in the midst of chaos…or even because of it! Like your blog a lot. Thanks for visiting mine!

  3. Yeah as they same a time for everything and everything has a time.. the inspiration to write for me has its ebbs and tides.. Mostly I write to share my thoughts so i just don’t live inside my head. I write because I feel my voice is louder and clearer on paper.

  4. I am so inspired by this post Gilian. Please continue informing, helping and inspiring others through writing. I am one of your followers now.๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. I blog because I feel fulfilled when I do. I get to express myself in writing which I’m better at than talking. I feel you when you said that it takes a lot of time. I can only squeeze in blogging once a week when the kids are preoccupied.

  6. i have this love and hate in writing but I officially started my own website because I was inspired to some mommy bloggers like you.
