Questions about blogging?

When will you stop blogging?

Should a blogger continue blogging if it is no longer fun?

 

Should readers take you seriously?

Why wouldn’t they?

 

Does it bother or trouble you that so few people read your posts?

How many great or worthy writers have been fully appreciated during their lifetimes?

 

Why is it that your most frequently read posts week after week are about sex in marriage?

Have these blogsite visitors bothered to peruse the archives to sample the wide range of our writing?

How about a more in-depth answer?

Are we men and women not more than merely sexual beings, more than our primal, persistent, instinctual sexual urge?   Or, is spirit trying to tell us something through our desire for sexual connection with our spouse?  Is sexual intimacy one of those activities where the intersection of mind, body and spirit is poignantly manifest, where spirit and matter are both at play?

 

Should you thank or credit Mark Kurlansky’s book, What?, for this approach to writing, that of answering questions with more questions?

Can we determine if he was original in this approach?  Did I agree with everything he wrote in that book?  How could I?

 

Have you ever noticed how statements are often embedded within questions?

Is “Why did you kill him?” a good example of that?

 

Are there any last thoughts for your readers?

Why ask why?

 

Ought we include a feature image here?

  1. It’s a way of life for me. I can go on microblogging sites and have my comments whisked away by the memories of goldfish beings, but blogging tends to have a better lasting impact. Typically on WordPress because the audience is much more mature and level headed.

  2. I will stop blogging when I no longer have the funds to do so. I do hope that day never comes. For me, my site and purpose is to use an objective and unbiased approach to provide information about people, places and events. I would say it is more of a public service for those who are frustrated with traditional news outlets injecting their opinion. For example, innocent remarks such as, “the government is mulling a small tax increase on each gallon of gas” is very subjective as to the amount of gas you purchase. A person filling up a small eco car may not feel the effects as much as someone filling up a semi tractor trailer, ship or farm equipment. I would prefer to let the reader decide if it is a small increase and simply say, “the government is looking to raise the tax on each gallon of gas from 18 cents to 25 cents per gallon.” That is just a small example of the editing I do in order to provide the facts without the subjective chatter and in some cases blatant bias. I am not perfect as I do miss things, but overall I think I do ok. So for now I am a blogger sharing news with my online friends 🙂 Perhaps leading by example may force change in the news industry, but at the very least, it exposes news sites that innocently inject their subjective opinions all the way up to those that are in business to sway public opinion with propaganda.
