The View From Here: Longevity
Today’s question is: Do You Think You Will Keep Blogging 5, 10, 15, 20 Years From Now?
I’m not very good at predicting the future, and I never would have pegged myself for a blogger a year ago, but I can honestly say I hope I will be blogging then! Who knows how social media and the internet will change, but as I’ve said in earlier posts, I love connecting with new people, both online and in real life, and I’ve found a good writing rhythm, so I hope I can keep that up for years to come.
I’ve been writing here for almost a year, and I still feel excited and inspired each day. One of my goals is to keep up the momentum, and I’d love for my blog to become a possible springboard for writing gigs, maybe as my boys get older. I also realize I’ll soon assume the position of their chauffeur, and my quiet time in the afternoons and evenings will become limited, too. I guess that’s all part of motherhood, but hopefully it will also provide some interesting fodder for my blog.
I think my current place in life is pretty common among bloggers, and it will be interesting to see how we all change and grow as we get older. Maybe one day, I’ll be writing about the awesome trips I’m taking, or even about my grandchildren, but we’ll just have to see!
