Even if no one reads…
My best friend Courtney recently started a new blog and I hope she doesn’t mind me mentioning it here. But it has really inspired me.
It’s called “Even if it doesn’t pay…” and she discusses a lot of things going on in her life but mostly how all of this has inspired her to start writing again…even if it doesn’t pay. She’s very talented!
It got me thinking about my own blogging and how I have days where I think absolutely no one cares about or reads my blogs. I even feel silly sometimes putting all this out there.
But I know that’s not true. Sometimes it’s hard though, to see how well others blogs are doing and how even though I have been blogging for almost 2 years now, mine just hasn’t taken off the way I’d hoped it would.
But this brought me back down to Earth. Numbers of page hits, readers, and stats are not why I blog. I blog because I love it!
I blog about food because I love to cook and eat, especially now that I have a healthy relationship with food again. Especially now that I’m vegan!
I love to blog about exercise because I love it! I love to run, I love to sweat, and I love the Zen that comes from practicing yoga.
I love the way my body, mind and spirit feel because of the way I live now.
And I love all of you who stop by, leave me sweet comments, and make me feel like what I do matters to someone other than myself.
So, in the spirit of my dear friend, I’m going to keep it up, with a positive focus, and have fun.
Even if no one reads it.
