Top Ten Tuesday: Blogging Confessions

toptentuesday From The Broke and the Bookish - Top Ten Blogging Confessions

  1. I always have big ideas and plans to post regularly on my blog but invariable don't follow through with them. Lately it's been because I'm busy doing writerly stuff that needs to be done if I want to get published.
  2. Each blog post takes 30 minutes at a minimum. Usually over an hour. (This one had taken five hours, but ice cream had to be made.) That's a lot of time to dedicate to something I'm not entirely sure anyone reads and/or enjoys.
  3. Building a following on a blog is hard work. Does it reap the benefits touted by proponents of Platform Building? Magic 8 Ball says, "Ask again later."
  4. I used to religiously write book reviews but now can't seem to put into words why I liked a book or disliked it. I think I'm out of practice and if I made myself write them, it would come back. The problem is time. Book reviews take even longer than a general blog post.
  5. I don't read or follow as many blogs as I should.
  6. My favorite all time blog post is One Mile Ahead.
  7. Of the ten most popular posts, seven are about The Mentalist.
  8. I do not talk politics on my blog.
  9. Nor do I talk about religion.
  10. I didn't think I had blogging confessions. Turns out, I had nine.
