If I said that I become a doctor because of the money ... does that necessarily make me a bad doctor? No, I might be a pretty amazing doctor AND enjoy what I do ... however, it is the money that motivates me. If I said that I became a teacher because of the holidays, then you would probably label me as a horrible teacher without even considering that I enjoy the holidays to recharge and refresh as I truly enjoy some of the intrinsic motivators of teaching.
And if someone is making videos for fame ... all the power to them ... if they enjoy what they are doing. If they are making videos for fame AND hate making videos, then I could agree that this might share some factors of annoying.
When I make a video ... SURE ... I want people to watch it. That is why I push it out onto YouTube isn't it? So what is wrong with being motivated by the goal of having more and more people watch and enjoy? Is my purpose to become "famous"? That is a fairly difficult and complex question to answer. A simplistic answer would be NO as there are many other motivators behind SwasBoss TV. Unfortunately for some, indirectly it must be a desire for fame as I want to reach as many people that I can who enjoy it.
Förlåt min svenska ... är inte sååååå spännade ... hehe. Det blir kul om du kan skriver lite grann på svenska. Are you going to start your personal blog here? Eller ...
Yeah ... jag också bloggar på http://SwasBoss.com. It is more of a personal blog, men jag också tycker om att YouTube och ladder upp till flickr. Hehe ... Så kommer förbi :D
I have now been blogging for about 6 months and all is looking good ... imagine!
To answer the reason why ... I have no idea. I guess one really does need to find a focus for the content of their blog ... such as yourself. I mean ... you can only write that you got up and had breakfast so many times. I mean that is what Twitter and Facebook are for ?? Aren't they? Then again ... think about most things in life. How many activities does one keep consistently doing year after year?
It being the New Year ... blogging just might be like exercising. You can exercise for years and just suddenly stop. No real reason ... it just sort passes you by and I think the same is true with blogging. One just finds other interests in life? Maybe I am wrong ... just a couple of thoughts anyways. I swam for years ... it was a lifestyle more than a habit, but suddenly ... I stopped. It was a lifestyle change. So can't the same be true with blogging? Even if it goes beyond a habit to become a lifestyle ... then there is still no guarantee that you will continue for years and years.
My two cents anyways.
You have made a HUGE SUCCESS as some people might say. I certainly think so. Imagine, what you have accomplished! It truly is brilliant.
I too have to LOVE MYSELF more ... by becoming more physically active. Imagine ... used to swim 10 km a day ... now maybe a walk. So that is a big one.
The one that I urge you to pursue ... as much as you possibly can is to travel! I know that you do a lot of hop skippin jumpin' in the US, but you really should do as you say. Just take some time ... and go with no plan for a couple months - if at all possible. Especially, if you are thinking about returning to school in the upcoming year.
There is just something about traveling and living the good life. You can see pictures, but there is really nothing about experiencing it. I know that I cannot be happier right now with the freedoms to travel a few times a year ... and have Europe as my backyard.
Good Luck in 2009!
BUT, there is a fun of posting ... and it just becomes more of a habit. Good luck in 2009 with keeping your blog on the DL and trying to avoid those episodes of nonpostingness :D
