The Good and the Bad of Blogging!

Its been four months since I tasted a share of the huge pie called blogosphere, and I’m beginning to realise that there is both good and bad associated with it. Here is a list of the inferences I have derived so far :

The good about blogging;

  1. Polishes one’s writing skills if desired.Well obviously you have to work toward it if you take blogging seriously.
  2. Ignites an interest in Photography.
  3. Widens your horizons and thinking perspective.
  4. Helps to make new friends.
  5. Gives your articles, recipes ,pictures a global platform which is really great!
  6. Keeps one positively occupied; rather than just whiling away time in unmindful activities.
  7. Great way to de-stress.
  8. Give immense-immense creative satisfaction.
  9. Blogging is for crazy people.
  10. You are your own boss..

The bad about blogging;

  1. Time is a crucial factor- you need loads of it.
  2. Blogging requires as well as entices one to read fellow bloggers posts. One,this requires time; two,you hardly have time or energy left to do any more reading. At least in my case I’ve not been able to read as many books as I could previously.
  3. Eye strain (read – Tips for sparkling eyes ).
  4. Muscle pain : Long hours of sitting in the same posture glued to the computer gives a pain in the neck (pun intended), shoulders and sometimes even a headache.Please take frequent breaks!
  5. Angry, irate  glances by spouse and kin. Even if you have a supportive family, they too at times get fed up when you wish to make a 3rd revision of your draft.
  6. You wish to take a camera along where ever you go (and laptop or i-pad too maybe).
  7. Scares of not revealing your true identity. Certain blog posts I read advice that its not safe to reveal one’s true identity. Can an expert in terms of online security shed more light on this matter?

So I have 10 good points and 7 bad points. Blogging emerges the winner!
