Hello all. :) Welcome to the Truth or Dare meme, hosted by Jenna Does Books.
The TRUTH question this week is:
What are the top 3 worst things about being a blogger?
I haven't had this blog up for very long yet, so I'll be drawing from recent experiences. However, a lot of these are double-edged swords. They can be the best things about blogging, too!
1. It's a commitment that I make by myself.
I am responsible for posting stuff to the blog, and there are no external deadlines.
On the bright side...without external deadlines comes a freedom. If I have something up, I can take a break for a week or so without worrying about being fired.
2. Time sink.
Sometimes I set aside an hour for a post and it takes me longer, especially when it's a book review.
However, it's been one of the more fulfilling things I've done in my spare time. Blogging about books seems to come a lot more naturally to me than some of the other things I've dabbled in, such as jewelry crafting and painting. Probably because I've been reading all of my life.
I can't think of another bad thing about blogging, so I'll give a good thing:
3. Meeting wonderful people.
I've met some great people who have shared my interests or introduced me to some fantastic books. Being a blogger is not just about writing my own blog; it's also about connecting with people in order to celebrate each other and the things we love in life.
Thanks for reading. Are you a blogger? What have been some of the best or worst things about blogging for you?
