It’s a question virtually anyone who writes will ask themselves. Why do I do this? Why do I write?
I never intended to be a blogger. I never thought anything of the idea, honestly. It seemed silly to sit there and write about random things. Honestly, who would read such? Who would care, right? Then, suddenly, I noticed something: I was reading several blogs a week. I was finding authors who I enjoyed the content of, and kept up with on a daily basis.
This caused me to want to blog, to share my own thoughts with anyone who would be interested. The thing is, I never figured out what I wanted to write about, and never could really force myself to keep a steady schedule. So I just typed away whenever inspiration came. It really does seem to be the same way now.
However, that still doesn’t answer the question of WHY do I write? It’s actually an easy answer: for the sake of it. I share what I think for whatever good it may be to anyone who happens to stumble across it.
I know of a few bloggers who do it purely to make money. They get signed onto whatever website will have them, and write what amounts to news articles about whatever is going on in gaming, technology, or whatever. Their writing lacks any kind of soul or personality to it, which honestly makes me sick to think about. What’s the point in doing what a robot could do? Simply to make money, nothing more.
I never want to become that kind of person, so it if means only writing when inspiration strikes, then so be it. I honestly make no real money off of Xadara, or any of my efforts: its a labor of love more than anything else, that hopefully will grow into something awesome. If not, then that’s cool too, but my whole point is simply to share my thoughts with you, the reader.
