As I remove more things from my schedule, I'm noticing that I want to read a lot more. Moreover, I'm noticing that being online isn't pulling to me as much as it used to. I have friends that enjoy cultivating online relationships and while I have many a wonderful "online friend", I crave the solitude from holding a book, sitting away from the computer, creating at my art desk, or playing piano.
Therefor, I ask myself if I should continue with this blog. A lot of this traffic comes from a few places I post. More traffic comes from one of the artists on the artist spotlight. But there is a lot to be said for providing daily content, or even weekly content. People do not comment on what I write, and that's fine. Nor do I have time to be commenting on other blogs. Blogging does take a commitment. Do I have that commitment? I'm not sure.
This is through typepad, so I am paying for this monthly. I could get something that's free such as a blogger site and just redirect my domain name to it. Who knows? I'm just pondering what to do. Often times I will just drop everything. That turns into a giant swing into boredom where I quickly scurry to fill my life back up again.
Soon that becomes overwhelming and I long to drop everything. There is a delicate balance between it all and I must remember my cycles - be they cycles of creation or cycles of living.
So, should I continue with this blog? If you read my blog and find it interesting, let me know. If you don't care, well that's okay too. There are new blogs popping up every few seconds of the day. I doubt mine will be missed. Funny though when friends find my blog, they say how well written it is. Yet it's not like I have a growing readership. Though perhaps if I wrote more I would.
Hmmm, would I rather talk/coach about creating or create myself. Or can I do both?
