I'm all spentBlogging is a strange thing... you get into a cycle of wanting to stop, then you can't help to start blogging again. At first you want people to read your blog; but then consciencely you think that your friends are reading, so you don't want to express any extreme opinions, especially against them. I know a number of bloggers have more than one blog just to escape from this exact scenario. Also blogging is a part-time (if not full-time) job. It always takes longer than you think. But I assure you it's fun. By talking about your opinions, of what you think; you get to reflect on youself, what you have learned, and why you think the way you are.
I once again got into the trap of thinking too much about the readers. By trying to make everything "perfect," you become a lifeless routine poster which is the exact opposite of what blogging is about. I felt obligated to [read and] post all the news, and it tired--as well as bored--me out. But something today got me back at blogging again. I don't know what--I will have to get back to you on that.
I do have a long list of links, collected in the past week when I didn't blog. I really need to cut back on news links collection and focus more on talking about the ones that are really important.
Is time a factor in blogging? You bet. But you can always find time for things that you think are important, right?
I hope so...
