I’m joining in with Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer‘s book blogger hop again this week, where they post a question which you and other bloggers answer, hopping from blog to blog to see people’s answers. This week, the question is…
Where do you find motivation and inspiration for your blog?
I’m going to answer this in reverse because the inspiration part is easy…it’s the books I read and the desire to share my thoughts on them, especially when they are good, with more than my family, friends and monthly book club. And it’s other bloggers whose sites I sometimes think I might be addicted to visiting, the books they recommend and the passion they feel for the written word.
The motivation is harder to answer because, in the grand scheme of things, blogging does normally come last. Time, or lack of, is at the bottom of it. At the risk of sounding like I’m moaning about work, I do find my job all consuming at time. Then there is family time. With what is left, reading takes precedence and all the things I would like to do to make my blog look and feel how I really want it to fall off the end.
Sometimes, this is frustrating. Most times I am very philosophical about it…it’s a hobby after all. How about you, how do you find inspiration and motivation?
