I can write only when I feel like writing.

My last post here is dated 29th June. It is over a month since I have written anything here. I am told that a Blog will lose it's viewership and popularity if the blogger is not regular. But, what to do? Though a few ideas cropped up in between, I just did not feel like writing. Believe me, I can write only when I feel like writing. I don't think I am a prolific writer who can  take a pen and paper and convert his ideas into words with the same ease of sipping a lemonade.

To be frank, I have never really bothered about SEO or about being a popular writer in the virtual world. I might have wanted to do so, but I could never pressurize myself to give a serious thought to such matters. I have read about people earning lot of money through blogging. I am not saying that I did not want to make any money, but my priority was always to write what I feel and that too only when I feel like doing so.

For me, this is a medium of expression. I write down my thoughts, feelings and opinions for people who love to read me. Actually, the fact is that I like to be read. I have been keeping a track of my viewership and do feel delighted when I see a comment on my post.

I think it is time for me to change. I will have to develop. I will have to start thinking about SEOs and earnings. To be precise, I will have to start posting regularly. Right?

I've always been true to myself - which is to write what i feel and make my blog very personal and non-commercial. I guess that gives most joy!

Karthicka, thank you!

Rakesh, you said it! I too believe that it is all about being true to yourself. Just for the pleasure of being read. But, I have started feeling that if there are other opportunities available, why not give it a try?

Don't bother with SEO and such technical stuff - It doesn't work with personal blogs anyway.

I think writing for satisfaction, happiness, better understanding of ourselves and others around us and providing value is more important. Everything else will follow.
