What Do You Get Out of Blogging?
It's a legitimate question.
Me, I get the satisfaction that comes with playing a really intense video game. As I play, my user stats go up. It's the same sense of accomplishment you get when you've won a particularly difficult portion of Tetris.
Bookseller Chick wonders what it all means, though:
... what kind of content do you expect from your writers who blog? How about from the bloggers who aren’t (and never will be) “professional” writers? With the proliferation of writer blogs, group writer blogs, reader blogs and the personal blogs that blend all these things into one, I’ve really begun to question what I need from each source as well as how each affects my thoughts on the blogger. How much is too much? How much is not enough?You don't want to hear me wax poetic on my own blogging because, frankly, that would be dull. I am very interested in the idea of "brand loyalty" though. Some people find a blog they like and stick with it through thick and thin. They find the idea of looking at more than one blog a day tiresome. I, on the opposite end of the spectrum, look at tons of blogs, if I'm able, so as to cull information for the following day. I have no brand loyalty, though there are certain places I prefer to visit first.
