Personal: What Keeps Bloggers Motivated to Blog

I've been participating in Blog Clarity's Periscope with Purpose Challenge this October. Melissa Culbertson, the awesome blogger behind Blog Clarity, is a fellow North Carolina Blogger Network Member. This is my first month ever using Periscope. I will admit that it does take a little while to get used to it because it's not live TV where you just talk, but it's also a tool to communicate with your online audience at the same time. Viewers can interact with you by giving you hearts, and commenting as you talk.  You have to really put yourself out there,  be willing to be real with your audience, make mistakes, and just keep on going.

Periscope with Purpose: What Keeps Bloggers Motivated to Blog


When I'm on Periscope in my home office, I always turn off my location for safety reasons, and it does reduce the number of random/non-followers in your scopes.  Our challenge over the weekend was to reveal what motivates us in some way. I chose the topic of what motivates me to continue blogging and my reason may surprise you. Check out the video below. It's a quick video and is less than 3 minutes which I think it an ideal time length with a scope for replay viewers. However, if you have people interacting you in scopes then they can get long-winded because it's just fun to talk, or at least I think so.  I do plan to host a weekly chat with my readers/viewers and I've got to decide the best time to host that. Any suggestions?

My answer to what motivates me to continue blogging is on Periscope.

Featured Blogger

Each week, I like to feature at least one blogger that caught my attention this week.  

Pili, of the blog, My Sweet Things, impressed me with her storage pantry jars. I told her in my comment that she should sell them.
