I know it’s a standing joke that most of the time we hardly know when our next post is going to come along let alone imagine blogging in the years ahead but what I am interested in is this: bar any unforeseen circumstances, how long do you hope to blog for?
Note the name of my blog, it suggests that I have a limited time frame before the blog has to shut down. No way! I don’t intend to end this blog after two years because I enjoy writing and interacting with the people on here. Saying that, will there come a time when my posts begin to lack inspiration or purpose? Or will the new experiences I go through lead to newer posts. It would be quite interesting to see a person who has kept a blog right from teenage years to the years of ancient white.
Blogging as a parent. Now that must be a challenge as you are likely to be inundated with work, nappies and your spouse so how on earth do you find the time? Yet, there are many of them on WordPress and their blogs are awesome as they are able to combine the seriousness of adult life with the spontaneity of children. One post can be arguing against the raising of taxes whilst another can be describing how your baby vomited over a stranger on the bus. Fun times. I look forward to it. Not the vomiting of course.
So do I think that in ten years time, I will still be blogging? Sounds slightly scary to think about because it almost suggests I will still be the same person in ten years but I sincerely hope not. I hope I will be much more mature, independent and with a family of my own whilst also still writing on this blog as well as for my job. That would be great right? However there is also a different that needs to be considered. You guys. What if you all went off and left me here typing away to no one. Perhaps there would be new people but what if WordPress began to decline in popularity? I think after interacting with so many people on here, I wouldn’t be able to maintain a blog that no one reads.
How about you? Does your blog have a specific time goal or are you riding the waves of WordPress on a shoreless sea?
Until Next Time
