Rising to the challenge : blog introspection part 2!

So, here is part 2 of my contribution to Guylty’s blog introspection challenge. Just answering a few of the questions, so there will be a part 3 at some point as well…

9. Which post do you regret writing?

I haven’t been blogging that long and so far, I don’t think I regret any… yet…

10. What do you find most difficult/challenging about blogging?

Well, as I set myself as few rules as possible, it makes my blogging life not so complicated. I thought I would have trouble coming up with things to blog about but somehow that doesn’t seem to be much of a problem… Apparently there is always nonsense I can put out there for the world to see…

Mr. Nonsense

OK, I am no Mr…

What I do find challenging sometimes is formulating posts. I sometimes take too long for my liking, writing and re-writing posts. Even simple ones can sometimes take a while because I tend to get caught in a stream-of-consciousness meandering and go off on tangents. Sometimes I find I can use some of that stream-of-consciousness stuff in my post, mostly it really just needs to be edited or edited out! 7 out of 10 times my posts turn out to be longer than I intended.

11. Your favourite aspect of blogging?

The outlet. My mind gets preoccupied with stuff and while I talk about a lot with DH as well, there is only so much of Richard Armitage or Colin Firth or any other topic he can take… Apparently I have this urge to document what it was that occupied me. Sometimes, with certain topics, it feels like I can only move on after I have actually written something about it. So, I come here and just throw out there whatever occupies me or whatever I come across that I feel needs to be shared and it feels good!

  1. I find the “putting it down here” aspect of blogging really useful, too.

  2. Thanks for that, Esther. Despite the “Kopfzerbrechen” that formulating blog posts may pose for you, it comes across that you see blogging as a positive, life-enhancing experience. That’s what it should be imo.
    Oh, and yes, the documentary aspect of it – I feel very much like that, too. The blog chronicles my journey in the fandom. It’s fun to go back and read old stuff sometimes.

  3. Very descriptive of the process: “I can only move on after I have actually written something…” Thanks for sharing this!
