So many Blogs, so little time.
Search for almost anything on Google and you probably will hit a Blog about that topic. Amazing really.
I was recently asked by a non blogger, why I, or for that matter anyone would blog. The question stumped me. And usually I am quick with answers.
After thinking for a while, my realization was clearly that I blog to help Victoria and her venture to sell gluten free baked goods in Alberta and BC. Mission accomplished. I think.
GF PATISSERIE is a little bakery that holds it's own and then some. And just today one of my deliveries was to a lady who first heard about Victoria through my Blog. Do i want to Blog about anything else? My dog? No. GF Patisserie and maybe a sprinkling about my adventures at auctions is it.
Then however, I kept thinking about all those Blogs I read at night and on weekends, and what motivates them to tell us their musings. Obviously my readings are heavily tilted towards Food Blogs, but also the odd travel Blog, especially European themed Blogs.
Then there are picture Blogs, that post a picture each day of their location. Why? Why do they go through that effort and committment? I do not know, but I do enjoy some of them.
Political Blogs. I only read them during major issues, such as elections or scandals to get a non mainstream opinion. But the rest of the year? No. As I said, so many Blogs, so little time.
Commercial success? I doubt it. I am not sure if there is more than a handful of Bloggers that actually makes more than meager returns on their referals from Amazon or other afiliate programs.
Or am I a commercial Blogger who just does not see the actual ROI? Victoria's bakery?
So. Why do you Blog? What motivates you for the past years to keep on typing?
Or for those of you who do not blog, what is your favorite Blog and why?
Here are some of the Blogs I read and why:
Because they are passionate about food (non GF):
Because I like Paris and it's stories:
Because I miss Vegas:
Because they are Celiacs: ( I am promoting GF Patisserie after all)
