Why Blog, Blogging, Purpose of Blogging, Want from Blogging

 

I was caught in my micro details. I wanted to see the big picture. It was time to pause and reflect, it’s been few years and how long and what for.

 

Is it to keep continuing my creative expression?

Is it to keep building my network?

Is it to keep expanding my horizon of thinking?

Is it to give wings to my technology products?

Is it is to give wings to my fictional books?

Is it to build my brand?

Is it to grow my online footprints?

Is it to build an online business?

 

I had to stop, the questions kept coming at me and at very frantic pace, I stepped back and kept a space between those questions…

 

Is it finally then all about making money in the disguise of creative conundrum and deceptively counting success with the monetary lens. The questions were clear and were there in front of me to confront me squarely and I was not fully prepared to face it fairly. It was face off. I was not ready. It was barrage of questions that came with a bang and rightful questions that needed appropriate answers, I had escaped for long and I knew that it cannot be further evaded.

The puzzle had to be solved.

The question of “what I really want” from blogging had to be answered and it was a strong one and one that can hit hard and it had already showcased its prowess.

I was left with no choice.

I had to answer all those questions to proceed further.

 

I knew if I don’t answer it today, it is going haunt me tomorrow, I will regret and I will realize later but there is big cost to that learning.

 

Why not learn from others?

Why to reinvent the wheel which has already been successful, and not just follow the proven path. When I looked back at all those questions, I started seeing hazy answers in every of those clear questions, it was just that it was ambiguously covered and I was in complete disguise. I wanted that little lid to be removed and the mysterious genie to be out of the caged bottle. I wanted to see what all magics it can show and how the magic wand works when it is let free and allowed the space to wander.

The outcomes of the question and the answer session I started;

 

Is it to keep continuing my creative expression?

The answer was yes.

Is it to keep building my network?

The answer was yes.

Is it to keep expanding my horizon of thinking?

The answer was yes.

Is it to give wings to my technology products?

The answer was yes.

Is it is to give wings to my fictional books?

The answer was yes.

Is it to build my brand?

The answer was yes.

Is it to grow my online footprints?

The answer was yes.

Is it to build an online business?

The answer was yes.

 

I know you will say the game was fixed and the answers were all known and why put such questions and test your mantle. Everything looked prefixed…Isn’t it looks so obvious? Isn’t it a futile exercise? Why waste time doing such non-productive works. Why not put that time to better use and get the strategy and action plan properly worked out.

It was clear. I had to define my strategic goals. I had to set my targets. I had to set my milestones. Some of the outcomes are intangible and cannot be quantified, it had to be felt and experienced. No monetary value can be attached. And there are outcomes which are tangible and measurable.

These all question and answer session has not given me the plot I was looking for build an enticing and engaging story, I am still searching for the perfect plot to tell me side of the story on “what I really want from my blogging”…

 

It would be such a pleasure to hear your side of story and know the interesting answers to so many these intriguing questions that common to all of us….
