Flogging – my own term for ‘failing to blog’.
For the second year in a row, I failed to complete the A to Z Blogging Challenge. It frustrates me that I didn’t finish the challenge. I have always loved the challenge but I don’t think I will try it again next year, unless my life is less hectic.
It has made me think about blogging in general. I wonder should I give it up. There’s lots of talk about ‘the end of blogging.’ How anything longer than a Facebook post is pointless, because no one reads online. So I’m wondering… do I continue blogging, or do I throw in the towel? I’m not looking for you to answer that question. I’m just pondering the value of what I do online.
So… I may disappear for while… to work on editing 3 different projects I have on the go.
If you’re a blogger and or a reader of blogs, I’d love you to hear your thoughts on the whole blogging thing. Is it done? Or am I just done with it?
If you want to catch up on Facebook or Twitter, come find me by searching for amowriting 🙂

I don’t think blogging is over by a long shot! For me it is a way of being challenged, encouraged, motivated, and many times it gives me the opportunity to have a good laugh. People read more than you think. I for one, would be sad to see you go.
I’m sorry to read that you weren’t able to finish the challenge, especially as you are the one who inspired me to begin it in the first place. It’s been far from easy and yes, I’ve been frustrated at times when people who blog and share about their blogs haven’t looked at any of mine, but hey, I’ve certainly grown from the challenge and my blog posts may even become a book, well at least a booklet.
Thanks again, Martin
You’re welcome. It’s great to be better connected now 🙂
Hey guess what, I just found you through the AtoZ Master List. I completed the challenge, but did not visit all the blogs (I don’t intend to, but at least certain categories). For me, blogging is a way to challenge my writing, and hopefully build a community. I have decided I’m not following blogs anymore who make it into a business. Then it’s less personal. But I will keep blogging even if I end up a Lone Voice Crying In The Wilderness!
