This week for Weekly Geeks we are asked if after the fabulous, crazy week last week that we called BBAW, do we feel blogger overload? And why do we even put ourselves through this blogging business? In fact unfinishedperson even goes on to say: Why? Why? Why? :)
I feel tired, but not burned out. Actually, I feel quite a bit enthused, and pumped up and ready to commit to a bigger and better blogging experience! Hmmm... maybe it won't last very long, but that's how I feel after this past week.
I started the week a bit sad. It seemed like every blog but mine was at least nominated for one of the awards. BUT... then the love-fest of last Monday happened, and I decided that even if I'm not nominated for anything, there's still people out there who enjoy coming here to read, and that's really all that matters.
And even though we all say we are in it just for ourselves, or to simply get the word out about books, or to keep track of lists, it's still been fun this week to see the little stat numbers go up. Welcome to all you new readers, and I hope you keep coming back!
I'm looking forward to trying new things with the blog. Fixing that ugly header, possibly changing up my whole color scheme, updating the blog roll, adding to the features. I hope to participate in the readathon this year, and to participate in many other events that are being talked about here and there.
I'm happy that after two and a half years, this is all still fun. So in answer to the question above... Why? Why why why? That's it... because it's fun. It's an outlet I need. It's a community I love. It's a worthwhile endeavor. It makes me happy, and I plan to keep right on "soldiering on!"
