Blogging requires many roles; writer, researcher, business manager, technical specialist, social director, communicator, moderator, marketer, community organizer, and … ? Fill in the blank.
I don’t think it’s possible for one person to excel in all of those roles. We have different talents and different interests.
So, while we may all love blogging, there are certain aspects of it that we like more than others. And there are some parts that we actively dislike.
What is Your Least Favorite Part of Blogging
I’m hesitant to admit this, although I have mentioned it in the comments, but my least favorite part of blogging is writing. I don’t really enjoy writing my articles.
I know it’s improving and I’m slowly starting to write like I speak but I lack confidence. I don’t think I’m a very good writer.
So, if I don’t like writing, why do I even bother. I started this site to share information about programs, lifestreaming and WordPress tweaks that I found online or that I had learned by doing. I felt like I was gathering a lot of information that might be worthwhile to others and that I should share it.
In the beginning, I agonized over writing the articles. It took me forever to write them. I’m not so concerned about that now but I know there is still so much I can improve. I have gotten a little bit better about noticing my typos.
I love doing the research, testing code on my site, and looking for photographs for the articles. I spend way too much time looking at photos when I am trying to find the one that I want to use.
Tell me, what is your least favorite part of blogging? (And don’t say falling asleep at the keyboard).
