The blogger lifestyle

So apparently if I want to be a successful blogger, I need to write at least 1000 words a day. Otherwise, I will lose all my readers and be shunned as a wannabe blogger. The writer of that piece of advice apparently suffered a heart attack as a result from the stress that accompanied his “blogger lifestyle”. Whatever that means.

Alternatively I can post whenever the fuck I want, and have fun while doing so. A successful blog is not one that has a gazzillion readers, but rather one that serves as a mode of effective self expression and of reflection, and that benefits the blogger as much as it does its readers. And certainly should never be a source of stress. It’s a hobby fer cryin’ out loud!

    1,000 words? Doesn’t that = 1 picture?

      Amen to that.

  2. A heart attack from the stress of blogging? Maybe they needed to stop sitting down and go for more walks.

    I would love it if it were so.
    But, blogging invites other people on the internet into your world,
    and people cause stress.

      If the stress outweighs the benefits, then it’s time for a new hobby.

      The nice thing about the internet is that, for the most part, you can just ignore those who annoy/stress you.
