A friend and I had a discussion about inspiration and blogging. Sometimes the spark of creativity has left. Sometimes I wait for the inspiration fairy to touch me, and sometimes that just doesn’t happen.
My friend asked if my move from 5 posts a week to 2–3 had been good for my traffic and engagement. I replied that Shiny Bits is my personal sharing with interested people — and I don’t mind that much if traffic and engagement result.
Sure, I’d love for thousands to enjoy what I put up here. But I won’t water down my posts to try to bring those thousands to my fold. Instead, it’s gratifying when a real connection is made and lasts. That makes it all worthwhile.
Thanks for enjoying what Shiny Bits offers. And thanks for sometimes being my inspiration fairy.
By the way, this great fairy painting is from Dover Publications. They have lots of copyright-free images for your blogging pleasure. And they didn’t share who the painter was.
