Don't Give Up On Your Blog

I was going through followers the other day and noticed some blogs that were “last updated 6 months ago” or longer. There were a lot of these.
Maybe they got bored or distracted or busy — but my guess is they probably didn’t get the huge number of likes and follows and reblogs they were expecting, and just gave up.
Please don’t do that. There are very few things we do consistently in this life.  We’re quick to jump from island to island of halfway commitment. Taking a break is totally okay: but I exhort you to persist in sharing your one unique voice with the world community. 
If you’re about to jump ship: please do NOT bail on your blog.  Do what you must — take a sabbath, go on hiatus, commune with nature, restore relationships, try new things — but come back and tell us about it.
It doesn’t matter if you only have a few readers. You’re not doing it for that. And even if you were, those few people who follow you might really be encouraged by what you have to say. You might be the only one saying it.
But more than that: your blog is a captured snapshot of your one fleeting transitory life, like the dust mote suspended in a sunbeam that shimmers for a spectacular moment in time.  It is beauty wrapped in expression, and you are putting something into the world that no one else can.  God made you for it. 
So keep sharing.  Keep making art.  Keep writing music.  Keep taking pictures.  Keep encouraging others.  In some small way: you are healing your part of the universe.  You are needed more than you know.  You are making a bigger impact than you think.


  1. I am one of those who almost give up. Hahaha. I am too but I have all the time to blog, however at times, I felt like I dont have anything to share. But my hopes are high that things will be better soon.

  6. It is very important that you are always updating your blog for your audience.As an accountant in accounting firm in Espoo i also use to blog about my profession and i always updating for my audience.

  7. wow.. such an encouraging post! I almost gave up on blogging due to busy schedules and studies.. this post gave me another reason to never leave the blogosphere :D

  8. I agree. I used to give up on my blog when I was younger because nobody reads it. But now, I keep my blog to keep me sane. I don't really care if anybody reads it, I just like to rant about my life. I blog to please myself, not others :)

  9. nakakatuwa ang post na to:) thanks!


Speak Your Mind.. Let it Out!
