When I started this blog just a little over a year ago, I didn’t really have any firm goals in mind. I simply had an opinion and a keyboard. I wrote blindly (still do sometimes for fun) with no particular goal in mind for my blog.
There were many, many times I just wanted to quit. I jokingly told The Reasoner that I think about quitting at least once a day. However, I find that the more I blog, the more drawn I am into it and the likelihood of me quitting diminishes. What’s the reason I keep at it? You.
I am Inspired and Motivated By Conversation
A blog without conversation is a lonely blog indeed. There are some bloggers out there who turn off comments simply because they don’t want their writings affected by what readers might say. But the readers are the other half of the conversation.
If I had never interacted with any of my readers, I wouldn’t have been able to develop many wonderful relationships that give me hope in this near-endless abyss that some call the blogosphere.
If it wasn’t for my readers and the conversations generated, this blog would be a potted plant thrown onto the road waiting to be crushed by the next passing vehicle. Instead, the readers have enabled this blog to start growing some roots and grow. For that, I am extremely thankful.
You Inspire Me
You, my dear reader, are the one that inspires me. You inspire me to keep going. You inspire me to stay opinionated and frank. And you inspire me to keep the conversation alive.
Thank you for visiting. Thank you for reading. And thank you for being such a great influence.
