I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

would I rather write my own blog or read other people’s blogs?


WordPress has posed a question wondering what I would choose if I could either write a blog or read other people’s blogs, but not both.  It didn’t take me long to decide on my answer.  For someone who is often quite indecisive, I was very decisive!  If I could only do one, I would choose, without hesitation, to read other people’s blogs.  Although I enjoy writing mine, it can be hard work and, when you have rashly decided to try and post every day it can be very hard work, but reading other blogs is a pleasure, never a chore.  I could easily spend hours and hours every day catching up on all the blogs I like to follow, clicking links in posts, looking at the blogs that other bloggers follow… The variety is enormous and when I find a new blog, it’s great to go back to their very first post and read it up to date – it’s like reading a good book.  I wouldn’t like to deny myself the pleasure of reading,  so my own blog would have to go. No question.

What would you do?

  1. I quite agree. I really enjoy reading other blogs. It’s much more pleasurable than trying to think of a subject for mine.

  2. I’ve read a couple of ‘takes’ on this topic. Yours is great and it’s interesting to me because I’m the opposite having always been rather a compulsive writer. I love reading blogs too but writing is my great love.

  3. who would blog if everyone stopped and started to wait..there would be only blank blogs, so before we answer think..why do we need to choose ?

  4. I couldn’t possibly decide.

  5. I’d have to cheat and have alternative days, Elaine. One day for reading others, and then the next for writing mine. Couldn’t only do one…

  6. I agree…I would easily give up on my writing (even though I enjoy it) to live vicariously through others’ and their blogs.
    And…I love the fun Christmas look. Very cheery.

Now it's your turn
