Blogging Did It
How has blogging changed your life? Tell us one thing that is different now than from before you started blogging. As we continue NaBloPoMo, here is my short response.
There isn't a lot to say about whether or not blogging has changed my life. However, I can say with certainty that it has changed my daily routine. For one, I'm going to bed much later now because I've carved out some time in the evenings after work solely to read blogs and write posts. I also take much more care in reading what others are writing and I spend a little more time posting on social networks.
One thing that is certainly different since I started blogging is that I am actually interested in who is following and reading my posts. Checking my stats on my blog and keeping up with number of followers is much more of interest to me since I started blogging. I always had a Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest accounts but never really cared about followers or likes. Now I actually want to know whom is interested in what I have to say.
Lastly, I also do notice that I'm reading a lot more and I am actually broadening the range of books and articles I read. I had not been reading much outside the Bible or study materials in the last few years but lately I am reading a lot more. I think this is due to blogging. Writing has really open up my appetite for reading.
