Hi, my name is Randy, and I am a blogger. But I’m not an addict. I don’t need to attend some “bloggers anonymous” meeting for excessive addiction. Heck, there are a lot of people who didn’t even know I blog. Part of the reason for that is because I don’t blog often enough. And I don’t write on topics that go viral. I don’t even get picked for the “Fresh Pressed” page on WordPress‘s home page because I don’t write on trending topics.
But the thing that is most interesting about the whole blogging experience: I have three blogs. Yep. Three. I have this blog, one about gardening and raising chickens, and one about being a Cub Scout den leader and the many experiences that we have each week.
And now I have had thoughts about starting a fourth blog. But I’m not sure. It isn’t that I am hoping to gain more readers with different blogs linking to each other. I don’t do that now. But it would give me a chance to diversify what I write about and keep the blog separated based on topics so that they are easier to find. Is that a bad idea?
Maybe I will just end up getting myself in over my head. Four blogs and not a lot of time to write. Maybe one of my other blogs, possibly this one, will be a little more neglected if I spend time on another one. It isn’t like I have more time available to write another one. But you as a reader may enjoy it. Maybe the blogosphere will be able to find me easier if I am more defined on my topics. I don’t know…I’m not a blogging expert. Maybe this is where I ask my fellow blogging group people to give me some pointers.
Regardless, I do enjoy this. And I want to write more. But I’m not addicted. If anything, I am conflicted.
Just another view from a Palmtree.
