What's your motivation to blog?
I am sure this topic may have been touched upon somewhere, sometime in Indiblogger forums. Still, I wanted to know,
1) What keeps the bloggers (who are not professional bloggers) ticking and keep churning post after post?
2) Motivation to blog originates from no. of hits / popularity or just that you feel strongly about something and thus you blog - even if no one reads your blog?
Well, I write because I have to and it feels great to have an outlet available, even though no one reads it, except from few friends and well wishers...
So, what is it you are chasing end of the day - popularity (measured by comments or hits) or satisfaction of writing something great (measured by how your heart rates your post?)
I feel so many emotions, when I am alone with the nature, I watch birds, trees, moon....stars. Everything make me poetic, even a tree which is cut and dry leaves all that give some lesson of life, reflect some emotion, that I can relate with the human life. So I write. I like motivational stuff also. Because many friends have motivated me, I am improved and living a better life, I should contribute this society, so I write motivational. Advaita philosophy has fascinated my life so much and gave the peace in life, so I can't stop myself from writing about Advaita and telling about it's glory to almost everybody.
Of course, the popularity, the motivational comments from friends, the critisicm, all that make write more and more.
Thanks Mohinee, you really have a purpose behind your blogging..and you are popular too, so that certainly helps...
ek dam sahi mohinee ji
mera bhi kuch yahi haal hai
फूलो की महक पे चिड़ियों की चहक पे धन ताकत जब भी करे विवश सज्जनो का ना चले वश लिख देता हू आग की दहक पे जो भी सनका देती है इस कवी को लिख देता हू हर उस सनक पे माटी की खुशबू पे ज़िंदगी की जुस्तजू पे या दिल की आरजू पे जैसे साज़ के तार छेड दो तो वो तराने सुनाने लगती है वैसे ही ठंडी हवा के छुने पे मुझ में से कविता आने लगती है
Shashi Jee, good to know about your motivation...the world around us really has so much to teach, you just need an open heart and thoughts / inspiration will follow...
well primarily it is to get some attention-maybe someone somewhere might notice and appreciate me.
but then also, i am used to ignorance(due to some infamous events at Facebook) so it's just now that i wanna write. obviously i need appreciation to continue but then keeeping something in mind is not at all better than posting it here
