Once upon a time one lady-researcher introduced blogging to me (thanks God, it was WordPress that I learned). Since then I have been badly into blogging – increasingly.
I started with the idea of emancipating women from emancipation (Shaktipower) and then realised that I can/want actually keep more than one blog – because there is much more I want to share.
Intrestingly, my feeling of a blog in the beginning was like of a home where I invite people to be my guests and to share with me the delight of life… I even wrote a post on that – The sense of Blogging. Some more time passed and I noticed that my attitude to blogging changed – now I feel blogs are like my babies 🙂 I feed them with new content, check their health (stats and comments), take care of their looks and of their friends… A very parential attitude, isn`t it?
It has been 1,5 years since I startet blogging and the number of my babies increased considerably. Today there are 6 of them:
I post there differently – at 1000petals and 2 photoblogs – almost every day, the rest – once a month or so.
There are also 2 blogs that I started and share posting with friends:
Some months ago I realised that a blog is a perfect tool for the event-marketing and successfully used the concept for attracting more people to a certain event (placing relevant information and news + photos from the previous event). This has been a great experience! (for private reasons I do not display the link here). One more blog I have just finished creating – it is aimed to raise funds for one beautiful garden.
Another possibility is the aftermath-photoblog 🙂 Instead of sharing the event-photos on one of the platforms like flickr, boxnet or picasa it is much more elegant to present the participants a beautiful photoblog (Thanks to WordPress für Monotone!!!) where every photo comes up with more dignity because of the chameleon frame.
Apart from that amazing blogging experiences I have given free blogging courses and mentoring to at least 20 persons.
There are also bloggers who apparently have been inspired by my blogging art and startet blogging themselves. These are:
there are probably some more – sorry if I forgot anyone.
Now imagine why I feel liek a blog-mama!
The logical question you can ask – where do I take time for all that? I don’t really know. I have a stressful manager-job and a couple of social projects… But somehow it works I guess it is the matter of desire. Or a mission? My practice of Sahaja Yoga gives me lots of power as well.
Anyway I have my limits too and I know that I may not dedicate to blogging more than that. And probably the time will come when I will stop blogging. May be. But presently I enjoy the process so much – also because it is much more than just blogging. I guess, you know what I mean 🙂
