Blogging is Hard Work10:35 AM
I've been back in the business of blogging for less than a week, but it feels like it's been more than a month.
The truth is, blogging isn't easy. In fact, in order to be wildly successful at it, it pretty much has to be your full time job. It can't be my full time job, though, because I already work two jobs on campus at my college, have 16 credits of coursework to deal with, and am a member of various organizations at my college.
But you know what? I still want to do this. I want to make it a priority. It's true that I probably won't be wildly successful at blogging, but I can still be mildly successful. All I know is that my creative energy is directed in this direction. I don't know why, but it is; I'm being called to blogging. I want to share my world and the way I view it with others...I want them to gain something from it, to feed off of me all that they want.
I want to blog. So I'm going to blog as much as I can.
It isn't easy to build the community; commenting on other blogs can take a lot of time. It isn't easy to broadcast myself from various social media websites, all at the same time. But it's fun. And I enjoy the feeling that comes with it.
The truth is, I think I was cut out for this. God had a cookie-cutter in his back pocket, labeled it Blogger. He waited until the Internet was created, and then He whipped it out. He formed many of His people with this cookie-cutter - frosting them with pastels, decorating them with flowers, and sprinkling glitter on top of them, and then He sent them out to be various ends of the world. I'm not saying there's a type, but there's a type: the internet-loving, aesthetically drawn, writers, and creative thinkers of this generation. That's the cookie cutter He was using. And I'm one of them.
I love it.
No one ever said loving was easy. In fact, I think most of the time it's hard, because when you love something, you want to put your all into it. When you're putting your all into something, you're doing everything you can. You're making it hard on yourself, because you love it.
Have a lovely day,
