19 BLOGGING RESOLUTIONS FOR 2019
19. Don’t Quit: blogging is definitely worth every minute of hard work you put in it (actually, it’s worth so much more!)
UPDATE April 2019
Since many of you wrote me that you are coming back to this post whenever you feel a bit frustrated about the social media / blogging scenario, I though it would be nice to update it every now and then -with further thoughts on blogging I might have throughout the rest of 2019 and with the wise words of fellow street art bloggers.
I’ve recently interviewed street art blogger Jon Reid who, besides having been an inspiration for me, is also the host of Nuart Aberdeen festival.
Jon Reid: “I’m not an art critic. I write about the stuff I like and I only share the art that I enjoy. I don’t share anything negative, because taking something down takes energy. Rather than doing that, I just ignore it or put it to a side. This allows me to better focus my energy into building something great. I’d rather be the guy who is always excited about stuff than the guy who rips everything apart. Especially because I do this in my spare time, I’m not getting paid for it. It’s really counter-productive to spend an evening writing about something I dislike when there are so many other things I do like in Aberdeen”
Why am I sharing this quote here? Because being “too enthusiastic” is the most common feedback I get from you. I’ve never been able to ‘justify’ myself by correctly expressing why I don’t write anything negative on this blog, but Jon did say it majestically :) Check out the whole interview with Jon Reid: he does share many more interesting insights about blogging!
