If you want to do it as a creative outlet and as a personal journal with some interaction because it&#39;s fun, like I do, than numbers don&#39;t really matter. I have apparently missed out on the stuff that was going on in blogland. Not sure what happened, but maybe I&#39;m glad that I am out of it. -Jessica LJessica Lhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05936922980905073030noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6964682542801816435.post-34991770818273908612013-04-12T14:26:23.459-07:002013-04-12T14:26:23.459-07:00I&#39;m not sure I&#39;ve noticed a decline in blo...I&#39;m not sure I&#39;ve noticed a decline in blogging, but it&#39;s possible. To me it&#39;s so overwhelming because there are just SO MANY blogs on blogger, wordpress, and tumblr. And some of them are so great and just never get noticed, and some are somehow really successful but really bad? I&#39;m not sure how a person goes about it. I blog because I realized one of my passions in life is improving other people&#39;s lives, through whatever way possible. And I blog because I want things to be better- people, products, travel.

It can be very frustrating if it&#39;s all about the numbers.

What a great post. I have been on and off blogging for years now. And it&#39;s such a good question. Sometimes the numbers can be encouraging.. hello! Get back to serious blogging! And yet other times discouraging... this isn&#39;t your &quot;real&quot; job, it&#39;s never going to, stop wasting so much time here. Ah blogging. What a world.<br /><br />xo!

Personally, I see blogging as an oppurtunity to practice writing, but also to catatlogue my life and talk to people with similar interests. I guess numbers are important to me, but its only because more numbers mean more people to chat to :)<br />xx<br /><br />Only Ogres KnowJessica Pennyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05320636015930899176noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6964682542801816435.post-42412493209700165262013-04-09T05:16:30.004-07:002013-04-09T05:16:30.004-07:00This is a really interesting post... and I guess f...This is a really interesting post... and I guess for me it was about challenging myself to use my closet more efficiently, and has really grown into a fun community :) I love it :)<br /><br />XO<br /><a href="http://pearlsandpaws.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow"> Pearls &amp; Paws</a>Heatherhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02044841117895312714noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6964682542801816435.post-35370240291090094792013-04-08T12:05:43.013-07:002013-04-08T12:05:43.013-07:00I love this post.

What&#39;s the point of blogging about stuff that you&#39;re not passionate about? People can feel when you&#39;re not 100% behind everything you post. I started blogging / writing as a creative outlet, and as a desire to document my life. I&#39;ve grown to really, truly love it. Those blogs that make you feel like you know them, that inspire you to write or create, that help you reflect or start a discussion or look at life a little differently - those are the gems. :)<br /><br />Happy Friday! molly pintohttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10630187841108621887noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6964682542801816435.post-38109333151469934542013-04-05T09:10:37.366-07:002013-04-05T09:10:37.366-07:00For me, blogging was a creative outlet from my 9-5...For me, blogging was a creative outlet from my 9-5 job.
