My Personal Guide to Making Blogging A Worthwhile Pastime ~ Revisited

Post by Carina Spring. 

I have decided to delete the post that originally occupied this space.


In it, I focused a lot on some vague doubts that had been stirring in the back of my mind.  I am glad I wrote about them and shared them.

In the end, though, they are inconsequential doubts, and my post gave them too much attention and power.


Now, I feel a sense of freedom letting that post go.

The post also included a list of ideas to help keep blogging feeling like a worthwhile pastime. I may revisit some of those ideas in future posts.

For now, though, it is enough to say that the same truth that makes most creative activities worthwhile also makes blogging worthwhile:

Focus on the doing, the during, the now.

Let go.

And have some fun.


I’ve kept the comments that responded to the original post. They offer excellent advice, and kindly captured and reflected what matters most. Thanks!

Hi! So glad you stopped by my little blog, where I joyfully embrace creativity. Here, at Home... hurrah!, I celebrate the beauty and depth of everyday moments, explore what life has to teach us, and share some of the interesting things I see and learn along the way. Thanks for the visit!

  1. A lovely round up – thank you – and a lot echoes my experiences too. I think approaching as an experiment is the best approach. Just because we can write doesn’t mean we know how to write a blog. Recognising that we’re entering something new and that we will inevitably learn and grow from it is important. I think it’s easy to get hooked up on stats and numbers of followers, but at the end of the day, I think who our followers are is so much more important.

    1. Thanks so much for the input, Bekki. So true – great points! It will be fun to see how much more there is to learn with continued practice and time. Actually, I thought you’d been blogging for longer than 3 months… Well done! Take care!

    1. I think you got at the heart of it, Robert – in the end, the most important thing is to just sit down and write (or draw, or whatever one’s inclination might be). I suppose that is what I was thinking about in my first point (A state of Flow): Focus on the doing and forget about all the other “stuff”. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
