I have been thinking, no smart remarks please, and why do you blog? I was speaking to a new acquaintance last week and was telling them how I sew and stuff and mentioned that I blog as well. She said according to a TV show blogging in terms of profit versus time spent is a really poor use of resource. It has stuck with me ever since. Is that the sole motivation - profit? Some of my favourite blogs don't even have anything for sale, Pigeon Pair, Thornberry, Potty Mouth Mama, Home Girl, Hugo and Elsa (though she will sell you cupcakes), Che an Fidel, The Nutrients of Life and that is just a few.
I find the most value is the support and input I receive and inspiration from reading about everyone else's adventures. I have managed to make friends with people I wouldn't normally been able to have the good fortune to meet. I am so grateful to everyone that takes time to share because I guess that what a community is.
