Robbie Schlosser: "Why I Blog"

I recently described a few reasons why I blog.  Here’s one more.

Back in 2009, I accepted a challenge to list 25 interesting things about me. If you have a moment right now, please read a few of them. If something I said there catches your attention, please tell me. I’d like to know more about you, too.

One of those 25 things described my love for gardening. Here’s part of what I said about my garden:

It grows slowly, but it’s always there.  I can see the effect of everything I do, slowly but surely, and nourishing it takes all my patience.

Same with my blog.  It’s been growing for years now.  Gradually becoming sturdier and more attractive.  Blossoming occasionally, and bearing nice fruit regularly.

The same way I learn from master gardeners and other amateurs like myself, I’ve been following a number of blogging and social media authorities.

I’ve been learning how to give my blog beneficial exposure.  I’ve been learning how to nourish it and protect it.  I’ve been learning how to prune it to remove “deadwood”, refine its size & shape, and encourage a better “yield”.

Like any project I work on for a long time, I’m finding great satisfaction in watching it develop.  Don’t you find the same thing yourself?

I understood its usefulness only vaguely at first.  Now I’m better able to guide it along productive directions.

With nearly 300 posts now, my blog is becoming a durable, long-lasting vehicle for sharing my thoughts over a range of subjects.  Particularly about wedding and party music.

I make a living entertaining at weddings and parties, and helping people plan the perfect music for their celebrations.  With my eyes and ears wide open, I’m always learning something new about wedding and party music.  Planning as well as performing.

I appreciate the opportunity my blog provides to examine and explore what I discover and share it with friends.  As my experience grows, my blog grows.

How about YOU? Ever tell someone “Here’s why I blog”?

Robbie Schlosser

Thanks, Katrina. Glad you enjoyed reading through those 25 things I wrote. Try compiling a list of your own.
Don’t look now but online here you’re in a community of readers. Everyone who blogs, or visits blogs, loves to read. And the more we do, the better we get. Each of us has an arsenal of reading styles to suit our own purposes. What’s YOUR favorite reading style?


Roy A. Ackerman, Ph.D., E.A.

Some may say I blog; others declaim I bloviate. Either way, I continue!


Robbie Schlosser

Thanks, Roy, I’m with you here! The more we continue, the clearer our reasons become. And who knows, we’re likely to create a few new purposes in the process.


Alan Miles

Enjoyed finding out about you, Roy. And we have more than a few things in common. Music’s always been a big part of my life – and it’s been fun recently, after a longish gap to getting back to live performances. I’m watching my son do something you’ve done and I didn’t have the guts to do .. put the ‘career’ aside and give it all to music. Let me give you a link to him – hope you enjoy. http://edwinmiles.com/ – start with the videos, which he was lucky enough to record at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios.

Like you, Lena and I met, fell, and in a couple of weeks we were hitched. We just knew! And 30 years later, we weren’t wrong. Neither of us were really looking at the time – it doesn’t happen for everyone. We’ve been lucky.

Why do I blog (.. and why am I putting myself through my business challenge right now)? Here’s why – http://www.hroomph.com/explorations/whose-job-is-it-to-create-jobs/


Robbie Schlosser

Thanks, Alan.
Glad to discover we have much in common, as we squeeze our way into the blogosphere. Good for your son! My wife and I have no kids, but a cat used to live with us.
Fascinating piece on why you blog! Exciting to recognize how many ways we’re all learning the possibilities and benefits of seizing control of our destiny. The evidence is EVERYWHERE we look.
