Fandango’s Provocative Question #67


FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question.

Earlier this week, Dr. Tanya, over at Salted Caramel, posed a question in her Blogging Insights series that got me thinking about what it is that makes bloggers tick.

In my post in response to Dr. Tanya’s post, I wrote that I am curious about what purpose blogging achieves or fulfills. What internal needs does blogging meet? What part does it play in their daily lives? How important is it to them? If they weren’t blogging, how else would they spend their time? On a scale of one to ten, with ten being blogging is their entire reason for being, and one being that, meh, they have nothing better to do, how does blogging rate?

Several people who read my post suggested that I might want to pose those questions in my weekly provocative question post. So today’s provocative question boils down to this:

As a blogger, when it comes to your blog, what makes you tick?


I have been blogging for about 19 months now.

When I started to blog, it was just a half baked idea, a whim you may say. I never thought that it would become a part of my daily life. But it is just that now, an essential part of my day.

My blog had grown into something that I never imagined when I started it. It has become my connection to a whole and wonderful world of amazing people. If I don’t open my blog, I don’t know what is happening in this world. It’s like walking into a room full of friends. We talk, share, joke, and tell each other stories.

This has now become my motivation, to keep in touch with my blogging family.

It’s true that I love and enjoy what I write and am happy when I receive feedback and comments on my writing. But that has taken a back seat to the fact that my blog keeps me connected to like-minded friends. I value this connection and am happy to spend my time in this world.

  1. I remember when you first showed up on WordPress, Sadje. You made an impression on me by being someone who almost always leaves a comment on the posts you read. That makes you stand out and the fact that you take the time to proactively interact with your fellow bloggers sets you apart.
