Holy – what do you think of that long title?!
If you’re here, I’m going to assume that blogging is your writing format of choice, which begs the question, why? There are all sorts of writing projects you could be doing. How come you like blogging better than other types of writing? What’s the one major selling point of blogging for you?
There are a multitude of reasons that I like blogging best, but if I had to choose one major reason, it’d be the social interaction. When I went full-time freelance, I was working only 1/4 of my time as a blogger. Most of my time was spent on other various writing projects, and there was very little social interaction. I almost went back to a full-time day job; in fact I did go back part time for a while. I got some random job at a flower nursery, because I just plain missed people. Being alone in my office writing articles and copy, is not a dream come true for me, I get fidgety and miss chatter with co-workers.
Once I started taking on blogging gigs more, and other projects less, I knew I could keep freelancing full-time, because the social aspects of blogging are abundant. Read more about my ideas behind the social aspects of blogging.
