First of all - I just want to say a gigantic thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday and commented on my first post in the "I'm Hearing Voices" blogfest! I didn't expect so many wonderful and encouraging words and it really boosted my confidence to know that you were so interested in Callum! You guys are the best!
I read some amazing interviews yesterday, and everyone who participated had something different and interesting to offer. I am genuinely excited by how many talented people there are out there! Thanks again go to Cassie and Angie for setting up this very cool blogfest!
Now, on to my blogging thoughts!
I have a confession to make. I have blogged before, and I always hated it. I have two other blogs I used for my freelance work, and I loathed taking time out of my day to write a post for them. They haven't been used in a long time. I set up this blog with the nagging suspicion I'd get bored of this one too - but instead - something magical happened. I fell in love.
I adore my freelancing job, but blogging about it didn't hold my attention. Perhaps it's because fiction has always been my first love, and there is always something new to say that I've done or learned. Maybe it is the incredible fiction writers in the blogosphere that keep me motivated, and make me think about techniques and different styles I could use. It could be the sheer variety of interesting people I am just starting to know.
But I think it is the combination of all of these things that has made me want to rush to my laptop, read what about everyone else's successes, and give someone a boost on the bad days because I know how those things feel.
I have finally found that blogging is not a chore. It is something I love!
