How, Do, Can … [Triple Q]


I received another anon email the other day asking if l was asking these questions for a reason? I answered simply with the truth.


Triple Questions

How do you motivate yourself to keep your Blog up and running?

I know this is a question that is often seen up and down, left to right in WordPress and so all l am merely doing is jumping atop of the Bandwagon and screeching ‘Yeehaw! Let’s grab me some of that!”

How l motivate myself is quite simple really – l love to write, l am writing, l have things l want to do and l am doing them, l enjoy the community and look forwards to interacting with them on a daily basis as this too serves as my social circle. I could get technical but this isn’t the technical question, so l shant. My blog is made up of many personable components that are extensions to my personality, my individuality and unique to who l am, l have a story to tell and this arrives in the format of many stories and tales which are comprised of millions of words and so l am here telling it. My mind is constantly moving and exploring and discovering and so that is how my blog rolls. But that’s me, what about you? How do you motivate you?

Do you find that there are Bloggers who have impacted your blogging experience and if so how?

Yes, there are many bloggers who have made an impact on not just the blogging experience itself but also my life within the very experience of my blog. How they achieve this is through their engagement, sharing and interacting their life with me either through their own stories or indeed as l have gotten to know them personally. But equally, when l read their blogs l am able to get to know them even better than l might do just reading their comments. Their very creativity and expression allows me to further delve into my own inventiveness.

Can you name some of your favourite bloggers and then explain why they are your favourites?

In all honesty l have so many favourites and for many reasons, be this through their expression, their writing, creativity, humour, belief, blog structure and presentation. The way they engage with their audiences, the readership, how they interact and what they are like as community members and whilst that may sound oddish, it’s not meant to read that way, but l have learned as l have trekked into my journey here, that some of my community become valuable teamsters of sorts – they work together cohesively whether they know it or not, they support and motivate each other.

I have many, many favourites and l will name a few here. They are mentioned because they have turned up at the table and brought goodies in the way of stories, humour, diversity, excitement and adventure, real life, mystery and challenge, music, cheer and goodwill, passion and fashion – when they arrive for dinner, with their smiles and their ways about them, you know that it may be some time before they leave again, because the evening will be fun packed and mischievious, prankish, politically heated and bloody good fun.

These questions are for you and to find out what you think in the way of answers.

So please do let me know your views in the comments section below.

Thanks, Rory

  1. A comprehensive line of Questions. I would need a separate post to answer. I really appreciate the mention here. Your blog is one of my favorite blog because you bring so much to the community. And you give so much of yourself. Thanks

  2. Thanks, Rory, for including me and my blog in your list. I’m still working on my first cup of coffee, so I need to decide if I’m going to answer your questions in a comment or in a separate post. I’ll see how the day progresses.

  3. Thank you for the blog nod, Rory 😀

    It takes me ages to warm up to people offline and online. I’m hermit levels of introvert.

    I adore Melanie, we’ve been following each other for years. She is blogging gold. She also has a heart of gold.

    I’m really happy I’ve blog-met you, and quite a few of the others you’ve mentioned in your list.

    One of the things about blogging is that the longer you do it the more you experience the ebb and flow of the medium. Bloggers come and go with frequency, they suddenly appear and then just as suddenly they’re gone. During the time they’re here they may blog like crazy, comment, like, interact… then poof! Life and stuff happens, they run out of steam, get bored. Sometimes they die – thinking of an amazing man I met on Twitter, he was like the heart and soul of Twitter to me, he kept it classy. He had a blog too but he never really liked the medium.

    If you’ve never checked out OM, he’s a WordPress legend of sorts, he has explored it in ways which a lot of bloggers don’t bother to do.

    Link to OM –

    Gotta go, dinner’s ready… will hmmm about your Q’s some more maybe 🙂

    1. Excellent stuff Ursula 🙂

      Mutual feelings backatcha 🙂

      Yes l have noticed that also, and that is of course the reality of life – it supercedes things like blogging.

      I will check out OM 🙂

    It’s easy to keep my blog going because all my friends are here. WP is where I socialize. I really don’t have any friends IRL , not because I can’t make friends but because my priorities don’t allow time to BE a friend. Motivation for me is easy.

    I can’t say that my blog itself has been impacted but my life certainly has. I’ve learned something from every blog I follow. The parents of autistic children have made me feel less alone. The autistic adults have given me insight into how the autistic brain affects the five senses and thoughts and feelings. I’ve shared physical and mental health problems and solutions. I’ve made fantastic friends, family really! One of my favorite words: SERENDIPITY often is working in the blogosphere. I read something I need right then or I write something that someone else needs.

    This is a short list and doesn’t include everyone

    You, Britchy, Beckie, Lin@Dream Walden

    She doesn’t post as often but we text offline

    We also text offline


    I’m sure I’m leaving out great blogs but this is the third time I’m typing this(it got erased twice…my phone? WP? Murphy’s law?) and I don’t want to go for four.

    1. Some brilliant answers and a great response G’ma, nicely done and aw shucks G’ma always appreciate the inclusion, thank you 🙂

      However you have answered in such a way that it gives a great clearness and concisety to my questions – so l thank you again 🙂
