4 UNexpected Things to Expect From Blogging!
As many of you are aware, next month, Pen and Prosper will celebrate two years in the Blogosphere! Yay!
So I thought it would be kinda' groovy to reflect upon what I've learned both here at my site, and also collectively through guest posting at some fabulous spots as well.
Whether you've been at it for two months, two years, or beyond. Here are a few surprising things you'll discover along the way.
1). Blogging is harder than it looks.
Whew! It really is folks. Though it doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to pull it off, it does take a great deal of creativity, commitment, patience and hard work to go the distance.
2). Some of the posts you devote a great deal of time and sweat equity to will produce the least results.
And shockingly some of the stuff you think will garner very little response ends up being a huge success. Right? Go figure.
3. Blogging is a great way to "win friends and influence people."
What started out as merely a recreational medium for expression, has morphed into endless opportunities for folks to make money, connect with great people, champion a cause, and an array of other perks and possibilities.
4. Blogging can become addictive!
Yep. It starts a little at a time. In small and subtle ways. Then before you know it, it begins to be as habit forming as dark chocolate, or the "soaps"! :-)
How about you? What about blogging has surprised you thus far? Any of these ring true for you?
